Fluff & Puff Dog Wash

Who needs a bath? 

On Saturday June 16th, the Best Buy parking lot was hopping with dogs and their owners, ready for the HSEC volunteers to take their mangy pets and return a fine example of a spotless, well-manicured canine (with ears cleaned and anal glands expressed too!)

Dogs and their owners first wait in the tented area for their turn, making new friends.

Britt's Back Porch was there with unique hats for dogs and people! 

When it was time to go, depending on which services their owners had selected, dogs had a quick stop at the nail clipping station...

They were brushed to remove excess hair...

 Then onto the main event, popped into the tub with the help of our accomplished doggie beauticians.

I'm going to my happy place.
A quick towel dry...

Or a shake, as the case may be...

And we have a whole new dog!

All that doggy suffering wasn't in vain - the wash was a success, with 87 animals washed and over $2000 raised for HSEC!

And now that your fresh clean dogs have promptly rolled around in the dirt, mark your calendars for the other three washes this summer. We have one every month. See you there!
