Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WASH.--People brought out their dogs to fight cancer. 

The 4th Annual Paws For Life event took place Saturday morning at Randall Park.

Participants walked their dogs to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

There were also several demonstrations throughout the day by the Yakima Police Canine Unit. 

"It has been a success in the past," said Sandi Cok, the Co-Chair for Paws for Life. "We've raised over $30,000 with the event for the American Cancer Society."

The top 12 fundraising dogs will be featured on a 2013 calendar, and all proceeds from that will go to the American Cancer Society as well.

They raised over $6,000 Saturday.
