Jacksonville, Ore.-- It was all about our four legged friends Saturday at Jacksonville Elementary.

Dogs for the deaf, a non-profit that trains dogs for people with hearing and vision disabilities hosted their 23rd annual dog walk.

Several vendors and dogs were out enjoying the day and walking together to raise money for the non-profit.

Organizers said this is their biggest event of the year.

"This event here raised about $35,000 towards our mission. our mission really makes a world of difference to the dogs themselves because we rescue them from shelters and them to the people we place them with," said the development director, Kelly Gonzales.

The walk had a super hero theme and the best dressed dog got a prize.
