Animals galore!

BURBANK -- The animals will be out for more than a walk in the park

this weekend.

The Festival of the Animals will be from noon to 8 p.m. today and 11

a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Los Angeles Equestrian Center, 480 Riverside

Drive Burbank.

The event will include a pet fair, horse shows, dog contests, a

chariot race and Frisbee-catching dogs.

Money from the event will benefit local animal rescue organizations.

"The event seeks to help these organizations get the word out, get

animals into good homes, let people know more about spaying and neutering

and being good to your animals," event spokeswoman Joanne Asman said.

An auction and raffle will be held, which will include memorabilia

signed by the cast of the television shows "ER" and "Dharma & Greg."

The Andalusian Lusitano and Icelandic Championship horse shows will

also be held.
