Bath Time: Dog Wash Raises Money for Mission Trip
Whether they liked it or not, a couple of dozen dogs got a free bath, thanks to youth at Grace Episcopal Church in Kirkwood.
A bath and a treat were in store Saturday for four-legged visitors to Grace Episcopal Church in Kirkwood.
Several dozen dogs were escorted through the "dog wash" -- whether they liked it or not.
Organizer Sabine McDowell said some of the dogs liked their baths more than others. But it was all for a good cause -- donations were accepted for the church youth group's annual summer mission trip.
Youth group members washed about 30 dogs Saturday, then towel dried them and sent them off with a treat bag.
It was the second year in a row for the dog wash. McDowell said the event last year raised about $500 to help fund a trip to Minnesota, where the youth helped build a house for Habitat for Humanity.
