Tails were wagging and soap suds were flying last Saturday as Kwik Car Wash teamed up with Heritage Pet’s mobile dog grooming service in an effort to raise funds for Waggin’ Tails Canine Rescue. This year, more than forty dogs were washed, three dogs were adopted, and $980 was raised at the fifth annual “Dog Days of Summer’ event.
Kwik Car Wash donated 50 percent of all car wash sales to the cause, while Heritage Pet offered free dog washes with all tips going to Waggin’ Tails Canine Rescue as well. Coldstone Creamery provided cool treats for the human customers and Kimberly Schlichting of Through Your Eyes Photography was on site capturing all the special moments of the day.
“This is our second year here, and one of our favorite events to attend,” expressed Waggin’ Tails Director Cady McClure. “We enjoy meeting new friends and visiting the ones we met the year before. Our dogs also enjoy the ice cream treats and free baths. We hope to join this event again next year!”
Waggin’ Tails Canine Rescue’s mission is to find homes for rescue dogs all the way from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins. They are based out of Parker, CO and are 100 percent volunteer-run. For more information please visit their website at www.waggintailscaninerescue.com
