Dogtopia, a national dog daycare franchise, has declared July 21st “National Wash Your Dog Day,” and is asking Americans to help change the lives of veterans, one dirty dog at a time. Dogtopia will host its ninth annual Charity Dog Wash in 29 U.S. towns to benefit organizations that provide service dogs to veterans, enhancing their quality of life, helping with healing and recovery and often providing a new outlook on life.

Dog owners are invited to bring their dogs to an event location for a summertime bath, given by Dogtopia’s trained team members and volunteers, for a $15 donation pet dog wash. Events will feature give-aways, food, photo booths and games. For more information go to www.dogtopia.com or on their Facebook or Twitter pages.

According to a recent report, nearly 30 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans treated at V.A. hospitals and clinics have been diagnosed with PTSD and more than 624,000 of Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans have filed disability claims. Public support and awareness is vital to helping organizations like America’s VetDogs and Veterans Moving Forward, two of the beneficiaries of the Charity Dog Wash, continue to train service dogs to assist veterans across a full spectrum of needs.

All funds raised will benefit service dogs for veterans.
