MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Despite the rainy day, Mid-South animal rescue organizations spent their Saturday helping pets find their forever homes.
Usually an outdoor event, Paws 4 A Cause was held inside the Saddle Creek North Mall in Germantown due to the weather.
Several animal shelters were set up for people to choose which new addition they would like to adopt.
They were also able to participate in games, demonstrations, pet art shopping, and several other activities.
“We do it cause everybody needs a dog and every dog needs a home and we hope that we find the right combination of people that make the dog and person happy and enrich both their lives,” said the event’s organizer, Greg Belz.
Local 24 Weekend Sports Anchor Jessica Benson was one of the celebrity dog washers, charging $10 per wash to donate to animal rescue organizations.
Indigo and Vera Bradley also contributed a portion of the day’s sales to the cause.
