A Fun Day Scrubbing Mutts

T and our dog Abby
A few weekends ago, my family and I spent the day washing dogs.  Lots of dogs. Actually, hundreds of dogs, of all breeds and sizes.  At the end of our adventure, the canines were clean, but we were smelling a little.....dogish.  The event is called "Scrub A Mutt", and it is run by my good friends, Elizabeth and Jennifer, as part of their non-profit organization, Save A Mutt.


Elizabeth and Jennifer work tirelessly year round, bringing rescue puppies up from California, and finding new homes for old dogs.  Scrub A Mutt is their main fundraiser, and this year we washed 300 dogs and raised over $5500!

We started early, setting up the washing stations and vendor booths.



Soon our clients started to arrive!


Our first customer.


No dog is too big or too small for Scrub A Mutt.  And let me tell you, we washed some BIG dogs that day!  My hubby was in charge of maintenance - he takes his job very seriously :)!


Of course we brought Abby for a bath.  Apparently she's enjoying it - look at that smile!


To learn more about Save A Mutt, you can visit their website.  We'll be back next year, ready to scrub more mutts!

  3. What a great day and a wonderful cause.
    Over the years our family have participated in different charitable and fund raising activities and I always come away from them feeling as though we've benefited just as much as those we chose to help.

    1. Volunteering adds such an important dimension to my life, and we've tried to pass that on to our boys.

    1. Riley would have had a great time - a bath, a toenail clip, and a pretty bandana to wear home!

  9. This brightened my morning! Great fundraiser and it looks truly enjoyable too. I would totally jump on something like this. Our dog isn't very busy, but growing up, I had big, fluffy dogs and we were at the mercy of scheduling them at a groomer. I'd love this so much more.

    1. Our dog Abby is SO hairy, so she's at the groomer often. She had fun with all the other dogs though!
