Chico, Calif.-- Animal lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike are invited to the "Walk Woof Wag" event at Bidwell Park tomorrow.

This is the fifth annual event to raise money for medical care for animals at the Chico Animal Shelter.

While the city budget pays covers employee salaries and the animals' food, it doesn't cover vet bills.

"The Chico Animal Shelter takes in thousands of animals each year, last year they spent $44,000 on medical bills, so we are helping them to raise money to help dogs like Daisey here get healthy and adoptable," said Shelly Rogers, a volunteer who's fostered a total of 68 dogs from the shelter over the years.

Registration will be set up at Sycamore Field, and the whole area will be filled with music, games, photo booths, pumpkin carving and even an agility course so your dog can show his stuff.

If you haven't signed up yet, get there at 8 a.m. For the 8:30 start time.

You can do a 5K or take it easy with a 3K, all to benefit the shelter pets.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
