Right in the middle of the sidewalk, between a coffee shop and a restaurant in the Waldo neighborhood of Kansas City, this happened last Sunday:
That’s right – bathies!
Bathies for all the world – or at least all of Washington Street – to see.
The dogs who unknowingly arrived for a scrub-down all seemed humiliated.
But afterwards, the dogs seemed as happy as their people.
All of the sudsin’ was part of a donation drive for Unleashed Pet Rescue & Adoption, a local organization that moves homeless pets from kill shelters to a no-kill shelter or foster homes until they can be adopted.
The turnout wasn’t huge for the event, but lots of people gave donations to Unleashed.
Ten percent of all Beer Paws proceeds from that day are also going to the rescue.
If you could not attend the dog wash but would still like to contribute, make a donation to Unleashed. If you would like to buy something from Beer Paws and have the charity portion of your purchase donated to Unleashed, just let me know when you place your order.
Has your dog ever had a public bath?
