A dogs-eye view of the Walk On The Wild Side fund raiser for Critter Care.

Dogs and people and llamas, oh my: the Langley walk for Critter Care

Walk on the Wild Side fundraiser held in Campbell Valley Park

Critter Care held its eighth annual Walk on the Wild Side through Campbell Valley Park today, drawing people and dogs and some llamas to raise funds for the South Langley wildlife rescue organization.

The llamas from the Fat Chance Ranch even took park in the walk.

Figures for number of participants and funds raised were not immediately available.

Critter Care relies entirely on donations to help rescue and rehabilitate more than 1,200 injured and orphaned wildlife each year.

This year, they have taken in injured and orphaned deer, beavers, opossums, numerous bear cubs from all over B.C., coyotes and more.
