Hundreds of two- and four-legged friends spent the day playing dress-up and running races, all for a good cause.

Wiener Fest is the largest annual fundraiser for the Aggieland Humane Society, formerly known as the Brazos Animal Shelter.

The event at Wolf Pen Creek in College Station started with a 5K run Saturday morning and featured a costume contest right after.

Kaley Downing and her dog Cletus took home Best in Show for their portrayal of Super Mario and the princess.

Later, the ever-popular wiener dog races were held, along with the wanna-be-a-wiener sprints.

Aggieland Humane Society has been helping animals find homes since 1981.
