The fourth annual Dog Days of Summer event raised more than $1,225, stated the release, and a total of 40 dogs were washed this year.
“Youth and Pet Survivors (YAPS) is a unique program that pairs children [who have] chronic [illnesses] with dogs who [are] fighting similar [illnesses] as pen pals,” said Kathryn Lewis, YAPS board member, in the release. “Sometimes the best medicine is simply a best friend.”
A drawing for a doggie gift basket was also conducted by The Pooch Mobile, noted the release, and Kimberly Schlichting of Through Your Eyes Photography was on-site to capture “all the special moments of the day.”
