Dog wash event to aid AWS

A Paw Print Grooming Salon in Brookfield will hold a dog wash day Aug. 11 to benefit the New Milford Animal Welfare Society.

The event, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the 801 Federal Road (just south of the four corners in Brookfield), will cost $15 for small breeds less than 20 pounds, $20 for dogs weighing 20 to 49 pounds, $30 for dogs weighing 50 to 100 pounds and $40 for giant dogs. Patrons may add $10 for double coats and $5 for nail clippings.

Dogs will be washed -- not groomed -- and damp dried. Patrons are encouraged to bring a towel for the dog's ride home. Matted and aggressive dogs will be declined. A valid rabies or town license is required.
