Dogs take bath for charity
Dogs take bath for charity

Splish-splash these dogs were taking a bath for charity at TailsSpin in Macon. And it's all to raise money for Furever After Rescue.

Dog owners got to have their furry friend washed for $10 and the proceeds went to the rescue. Co-director Brandie Westbrook said the group, which specializes in fostering puppies, is hoping to raise money for a new transport van.

"And a trailer, like a covered trailer, in order to bring all of our supplies to and from events and to transport our dogs to and from events, and to and from the vet, for vet runs," said Westbrook. "Because you know, right now we volunteer our own vehicles, you load 15 dogs up in your car and you have a brand new SUV, sometimes things happen so not everyone's as willing to jump in front and volunteer their vehicles."

Emma and Phil Banze adopted their dog Tusker from Furever After. They said it's important to continue to support the organization.

"And it's a really great organization, we try to come out and spend time with them whenever we can so they gave us this guy, so we want to make sure that we're supporting them," said Phil Banze.

This isn't the first fundraiser TailsSpin has hosted, they do it frequently throughout the year.
