They say when it rains, it pours, and for one organization in Marion County, the donations were definitely "pouring in" to help out some of our favorite four-legged friends.

The Marion County Humane Society sponsored their first ever Paws and Claws Charity Ride at the Copper House Grill in Kingmont on Saturday.

While it was too rainy to go for a bike ride, organizers said the support of the community is a help, but it also educates the public on the importance of keeping animals alive and taking care of them, and not killing them like other humane societies do.

"It takes a lot for us to keep these animals. We have to vaccinate them, worm them, spay and neuter them. We're trying to raise money so we can keep the doors open, and continue to do the job that we do," said Cathy Reed-Vanata, of the Marion County Humane Society.

The charity run also sponsored live entertainment from some local music stars.
