(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Some dogs in the area got a fresh cleaning on Saturday. The Friends of the St. Joseph Animal Shelter held a fundraiser washing dogs in St. Joseph Saturday morning.

For just $15 a wash, volunteers would shampoo and towel off your four-legged friend.

Organizers say the event wouldn't have been possible without the owner's of "The Dog Wash" giving them access to their facility for the day.

"We've got all kinds of people here. Everything's going to the shelter so that makes us happy," said Monica Mann, a friend of the shelter.

All proceeds from the fundraiser go toward finding homes and providing food, litter and other supplies for the animals at the shelter.
