Dozens of messy pooches now have clean coats thanks to a charity dog wash in Charlottesville.
Volunteers helped wash the dogs, both big and small, for the Old Dominion Animal hospital's third annual dog wash.
They are raising money for the Companion Animal Fund (CAF), which is an organization that helps out animal rescue groups around Central Virginia.
Many of the local organizations don't get a lot of money for their services, so members of CAF hope to help.
“Most of them are very small and they do not have any kind of infrastructure for fundraising, outreach and funding,” says Stefan Friedman, who is on the board of directors for CAF. “They come to us for money and we help them do their good works.”
“So 100% of the proceeds go to the Companion Animal Fund,” says Dr. Allison Kramer, with the Old Dominion Animal Hospital.
Nearly 75 dogs were washed this afternoon raising nearly $1,500 for CAF.
