Plenty of pooches pranced around on Saturday to help their furry friends find a new family.

The Humane Society of the Black Hills hosted their first ever K93K Walk and Dog Carnival.

At the fundraiser, dog lovers and their furry friends could play musical sit, compete in the waggiest tail contest, or get a dog wash.

Vendors also offered fun activities for man's best friend.

Jerry Steinley from the Humane Society says the shelter wouldn't be where it is today without the support of the community.

"They come out when we need help. They donate money. They donate time and supplies. It's just really a great community to be in and we want to share some of that back so this is a fundraiser for the Humane Society obviously, but it's really about community and it's about kind of this kinship we have with our animals and our neighbors," Jerry Steinley said, Resource Development Director, Humane Society of the Black Hills.

The Humane Society is open for adoptions on Sunday from noon to four and during regular business hours next week.
