Calling All Dirty Dogs---To The C.A.R.E. Dog Wash

Dirty dogs of all sizes will be scrubbed clean this Saturday by eager C.A.R.E. volunteers, working to raise funds to support animals at the shelter.

Editor's note: The following is an announcement from C.A.R.E. volunteer Janice Cha.

C.A.R.E.'s Summer Dog Wash is just around the corner. Dog scrubbers and dryers--all C.A.R.E. volunteers--will muster from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. this coming Saturday, June 23, to wash dogs on shelter grounds at 2310 Oakton in Evanston.

For the modest price of $10 (regardless of size), you will be able to bring home a sparkly clean hound. An additional $10 will get their nails trimmed, too. Such a deal!

Making her C.A.R.E. Dog Wash debut will be Heidi Danos, an Evanston entrepreneur who recently launched a handmade soap business called Dirty Knees Soap Co. Heidi's most recent addition to her line of handmade soaps is Dirty Paws, a soap for... you guessed it, dogs. Cedarwood, lavender and citronella promote a healthy coat while helping to scare away bugs. 

Dirty Knees Soap is handmade in small batches with natural and eco-conscious ingredients, and no palm oil. Heidi will be donating a portion of her June and July sales to C.A.R.E.

Heidi's C.A.R.E. connection comes via her dog, Sam, a "terrific Great Dane, Collie, Dachshund mix" (according to the DNA analysis she had done) that she adopted from the Evanston shelter organization a few years ago.

We do hope all of C.A.R.E.'s "dog-owned" friends in and around Evanston will mark their calendars for a June 23 scrub. See you there, rain or shine!
