Dogs get fluffed and puffed to raise money

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Man's best friend received some special treatment on Saturday to raise money.

It is all part of the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina's Fluff and Puff Dog Wash summer fundraiser.

More than 30 volunteers lent a hand at Saturday's fundraiser.

They washed, clipped nails, and brushed more than 70 dogs at the event.

Event organizer, Katie Benson, says these dog washes are a crucial fundraiser for the Humane Society.

"During the summer people don't really donate as much. They don't adopt as much, but, we have so many more kittens coming in and so many people surrendering their pets because they are moving, so the summer is really crunch time for us. So, these Fluff and Puff Dog Washes bring in much needed funds," said Benson.

Saturday's event raised more $1,600.

    A nice firm handshake has long been a mark of good manners and elevated social skills, but it's also a very germy way to greet your fellow humans.
