East Texansâ€™ dogs can get a free bath on Saturday and help their fellow canines in the process.
Pets Fur People, local no-kill animal shelter, will host its second annual Dog Wash-A-Thon fundraiser on Saturday.
â€śLast year we blew everybody away by washing 161 dogs,â€ť said executive director Gayle Helms. â€śThis year we hope to wash 200 dogs.â€ť
The event will be held at Peltier Subaru on 3200 S SW Loop 323 in Tyler. Robert Peltier has pledged to donate $25 for every dog washed.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and also will include microchipping for $25.
Participants are asked to bring a towel as well if their dog is to be washed.
