DETROIT – Dirty dogs can lend a paw and help their fellow four-legged friends at an upcoming fundraising Dog Wash and Nail Clip on July 30 and 31. Proceeds from the event, to be held at Canine to Five Dog Daycare in Detroit, will benefit Wonderful Animals Giving Support, a Ferndale-based program that helps low-income people with HIV/AIDS take care of their companion animals.
Suggested donations are $10 for a dog wash, and $5 for a nail clipping. The event, which is also sponsored by Posterity: A Gallery, Avalon Bakery and Cafe Detroit, will be held from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. on each day.
Canine to Five is located at 3443 Cass Avenue in Detroit. Canine to Five owner Liz Blondy has volunteered at dog daycare centers for the Michigan Humane Society, and is certified in Pet First Aid by the American Boarding Kennel Association.
The WAGS program, part of the Midwest AIDS Prevention Project, has helped hundreds of area residents keep and care for their pets. WAGS assists clients in keeping, feeding and caring for their pets when extended hospital stays, physical exhaustion or daily expenses seem insurmountable.
For more information about the Dog Wash call Liz Blondy at 313-831-3647 or Christine Gillis, WAGS Program Coordinator, at 248-545-1435.
