The Corpus Christi Young Lawyer's Association invites families, friends, and pets to their annual Puppy Love 5K at Cole Park on Saturday.

Organizers said anyone interested in attending does not need to bring their dog in order to enjoy the festivities, and if you do participate, the money raised will help fund People Assisting Animal Control's free spay and neuter program.

"The money that we get from this event is going 100-percent right back into the community for free spay and neutering. That's very important in our city because we are trying to help with the pet population, and that's what PAAC does," PAAC President Cheryl Martinez said. "That is our mission."

A $5 race for dachshunds will also take place during the day.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in each division.
