About 150 pets met on a street corner with their owners in tow -- then marched two miles to raise money for the S-P-C-A.
They reined in five-thousand-dollars.
Many found their pets at the shelter and now want to help save other animals.

That project will cost about 800-thousand-dollars. (------------) The SPCA runs on membership and donations alone.
