Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary will hold a fundraising “Shampooch” dog wash in Keaau at the Eagles facility, across the highway from the Humane Society, on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Dog washes range from $5 for small dogs to $10 for large dogs with nail trims by Shear Magic Pet Salon available for $5 each. You’ll find pet-related vendors there too, including Aloha Pawz Pet Boutique.
Held only a few times a year, the Shampooch fundraisers have grown in popularity in recent years, so it’s recommended to get there early to avoid lines. This is a really fun event that I’ve brought my dogs to several times and they always leave looking and smelling clean!
