Pampered Pooch event scheduled for Saturday

August 10, 2007

The Humane Society of Washington County will hold its annual Pampered Pooch Dog Wash and Yard Sale on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Employees and volunteers will be soaping down and scrubbing dogs for a donation in an effort to help raise money for the shelter.

"I think this is going to be a lot of fun," Humane Society staff member Jackie Barnes said. "We love pampering the dogs, and they seem to love the attention."

Employees and volunteers will also be hosting a yard sale. Items from the shelter will be available for purchase. Tables are available for the general public for $15 each or two for $25.
