SPOKANE -- Hundreds of people and their four legged friends took to the streets of Spokane Saturday to raise money for the Spokane Humane Society.

Many turned out hoping the latest discussion with officials from Spokane all the way to Liberty Lake may also mean a new, bigger shelter is on the way.  But even with that strong partnership, overcrowding continues to be an issue.

Leaders from Spokane, Spokane Valley, and Liberty Lake are discussing a regional center.  They are hoping that will end the problem.  The cities would cooperatively fund the new shelter.  They hope some of the money would come from a bond on next years ballot.  Nothing has been decided yet.  But having an idea on the table is giving many hope for a solution.

"Paws on Parade" is the biggest fundraiser for the Spokane Human Society.  Their goal was to raise $45,000 through the "fund walk".
