Do you ever want to just get out there and roll around in the dirt, romping around like its no body's business while all the prickly plants stick to your hair? No? Well your dog does. As you probably know well by now, your dog LOVES this. They love to roll around in things that you wouldn't want to get within ten feet of and they think dust baths are a viable form of good hygiene.
So if your darling pooch could use a bath, The Leon County Humane Society has the best way to get Fido clean. Every second Saturday of the month from 10am-2pm beginning now until September, the LCHS provides their well received Dog Wash Fundraiser. For only $10, your pooch gets a refreshing bath, an optional flea dip, and a towel dry by caring local volunteers.
Seriously, the dogs love it. Of course, the best part is the shaking. They shake, shake, shake in good dog fashion and smile with their tongues lolling out while they get rinsed off and while the volunteers playfully dry them. All of this while you sit, relax, and enjoy all the fun.
The Leon County Humane Society is always trying to offer more and will be doing their best to provide different special attractions throughout the dog washing season. This particular dog wash had so many great things. There was a veterinarian on hand for questions, a carpet cleaning service, and even a local artist providing individualized dog drawings. They are also always welcoming volunteers.

And remember, this is Florida, dogs love being washed in the summer months!
