Dirty dogs welcome at fundraising event
Wag ‘n Wash, a new Marysville non-profit organization, will hold a fundraising dog wash on Saturday, August 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Strawberry Fields, 6100-152nd St. NE.
The city park and athletic field complex is the future site of an off-leash dog park.
The first annual Wag ‘n Wash event will raise money for three local dog-centric organizations: M-DOG (Marysville Dog Owners Group), Old Dog Haven and NOAH (Northwest Organization for Animal Help).
“M-DOG appreciates the support that Wag ‘n Wash will bring to our group and the community’s efforts to give local pet owners and their dogs the off-leash park they’ve been waiting for,” said Doug Buell, co-founder of M-DOG.
NOAH, an animal adoption and spay/neuter center located in Stanwood, are actively engaged in stopping the euthanasia of healthy adoptable dogs and cats in the northwest by partnering with overcrowded local shelters and promoting responsible pet ownership.
Arlington’s Old Dog Haven is a small non-profit group that provides loving and safe homes for abandoned senior dogs by matching homes with dogs eight years and older.
Suggested donations for the dog washing event is $5 for small dogs and $10 for larger pets, although contributions of all sizes are welcome. Dogs must be on a leash for the event.
Wag ‘n Wash sponsors include Quil Ceda Veterinary Clinic, Jones & Co., Wag-a-Muffins Pet Care Services, Pick of the Litter Design, A Bark Above Doggy Daycare, Paws Gourmet, K9 Korral, Kristi Crabtree Dog Training and Shampooches Pet Styling.
