Dirty Dogs Help Save Lives

Temecula, CA – July 22, 2012

On July 22nd from 10am to 2pm, Dogtopia of Temecula is hosting a charity dog wash to benefit K-9 Support, Inc., with all proceeds benefitting military working dogs.  These dogs are currently deployed overseas and their duties range from Bomb Detection to Military Police K-9 teams.  These dogs are on the front lines fighting the War on Terror, putting their lives at risk to save our men and women in uniform.

“These dogs are doing jobs that help keep our Marines and soldiers safe,” said Patrick Moody, owner of Dogtopia of Temecula.  “They are in the same hostile environments as our military, but frequently lack needed equipment such as ‘doggles’ to keep the blowing dust out of their eyes.  The cash strapped units typically don’t have the funds to provide these types of ‘luxury’ items to their dogs,” continued Moody.  “In addition to badly needed safety equipment, many times the working dogs lack some of the comforts of home such as treats and durable toys for a little R&R.”

To date, K-9 Support has raised over $80,000 for working dogs; in 2011 alone, $24,000 was raised.  The goal for this year is to raise $30,000 across the country.  Every dog that comes in will be given a bath, bandana, and spritz of cologne.  There will be raffle prizes donated by local businesses and vendor tables to browse while you are waiting for your turn.

K-9 Support was formed as the charitable arm for Dogtopia, a nationwide franchise.  Dogtopia of Temecula is an award winning facility that provides open play daycare, boarding, and spa services to dogs.  Dogtopia of Temecula opened in 2008 and is located at 27629 Commerce Center Drive, Temecula, CA 92590.

We regularly work with not-for-profit groups, classes, and teams to help with fundraising efforts.  In the past, we have:

  • Held Dog Wash Fundraisers – 100% of the proceeds go to the organization.  We supply the products; you supply the people and dogs.
  • Donations to silent auctions/raffles – Typical donations are one or more 5-day passes and evaluations worth $155 each.
  • Booth at “festivals” – we have paid a booth fee at several events.

Charity Dog Wash Update

Well, we finally finished up our charity event at 3:30, 1 and a half hours late due to the awesome turnout!  When the fur settled, we gave baths to 64 pooches!  They ranged in size from a Miniature Poodle to our last dog, a 170 pound Leonberger.

We raised a total of $1216 for the City of Murrieta Police K-9 unit in donations and raffle ticket sales.  This was a great success and the K-9 unit can put the funds to good use for these often overlooked four legged Officers.            

We would like to thank all of the wonderful vendors that helped out and a special thanks to Valley Towel Rental Service who provided us with the all the towels we needed.
