FARMVILLE, Va. -- A 5K at Longwood University benefited the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Saturday afternoon.

Dog owners grabbed their pups and leashes for a fun walk around the campus.

The event featured music,  raffles and even a prize contest where all the four-legged friends had a chance to win.

CBS 6 News at 5 p.m. anchor Julie Bragg was emcee for the event.

The event helped raise $1700, which will support the dogs and cats at the Southside SPCA.
