The Meadows Original Frozen Custard of Hagerstown's fourth annual 50s-Style Freeze fundraiser Aug. 21 was a success, officials said.
A percentage of sales and donations were collected for the Humane Society of Washington County. With adoptable animals on-site, two were taken and both now have applications on them.
Approximately 150 to 200 customers participated in the event and between $200 and $250 was raised for the animal shelter. Approximately 40 animals from the community came to the event.
Local pet-related businesses helped draw folks and their canine companions to the Meadows by setting up near the walk-up windows to display their products and services. Those on hand included Dog-Gone Walkin and Dog-Gone Groomin' Mobile Grooming Salon, local artists Ashley Pinnesi of Off the Leash Pet Paintings and Kelly Ring of Kelly's Creations, the Animal Health Clinic of Funkstown and B-PWSITIVE-Good Manners Training for Dogs and their People.
The Meadows provided refreshments for the customers and their four-legged friends.
