San Dieguito Academy Animal Care Club in San Dieguito Academy High School in Encinitas, Ca will have a Dirty Dogs fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at 2107 San Elijo Ave.
The fundraiser will include a dog wash, bake sale, raffle baskets, silent auctions, and free dog toy giveaways all while a live band plays. The cost to wash one dog is $20.
The earnings will be spilt up into different categories that will be donated to animal rescue and pet owners with financial difficulties to take care of their animals with medical care.
The last portion of the proceeds will be spent on buying fabric, which will be made into blankets and be donated to shelters.
“I am so proud to be the president of a club of students who are so active in this community as well as in animal rescue,” stated Dana Smith, the president of the San Dieguito Academy Animal Care Club.
The organization's goal this year is to wash 65 dogs.
In a similar event, last year, the group raised more than $600, according to a press release.
