Pet Project: Woman runs for Fido to help local 'no-kill' shelter

LAS VEGAS - At any given time the Nevada SPCA has to care for more than 500 animals.

Dogs. Cats. Rabbits. Ferrets. You name it. The shelter is bursting at the seams and getting ready to expand and improve. In 8 News NOW's Pet Project, Denise Valdez introduces everyone to a woman helping her favorite charity raise enough money to make that happen.

Meet Cyndee Platko.  She's a personal trainer who’s going the distance to help the local no-kill shelter.

But, Platko isn't alone in her journey.  She always has a four-legged friend with her as she runs for Fido.
