ROGERS, AR-- More than 700 dogs joined in on the cancer fight at the Ozark Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday.

Fox 24's Brad Reed was there to help judge dog contests. Pups of all sizes sported pink Milkbone bandannas and many were covered with breast cancer support outfits.

Debra Trusty with Milkbone said, "What we want to do is find a cure for breast cancer and we know pets can help us do that. They can help us raise some money, but they can also sense when we have breast cancer so we know pets are very important to our lives and they also make our lives healthier."

All the fun was in an effort to show how pets can make a difference.
