Dozens of dogs beat the heat Sunday afternoon, getting a sudsy bath and grooming. The Friends of the Salina Animal Shelter hosted a fund-raising dog wash event.
Shelter volunteers did the washing and drying. Vet tech students from Brown Mackie College in Salina provided pedicures, ear, and gland cleaning.
The price of the service was a suggested donation, with all money collected going to the animal shelter.
The Salina Animal Shelter is a nonprofit organization, and a division of Salina’s Parks and Recreation Department. The organization provides animal control, adoption services and wildlife management.
The shelter is a no-kill shelter, meaning that over 90 percent of the animals it receives are saved.
Organizers of the dog wash event told KSAL News it was so well received that a similar event might be held this fall.
