Temperatures reached 93 degrees on Sunday, June 6, but the high heat did not curb the enthusiasm and attendance at the Bay State Animal Cooperative (BSAC) Annual Car/Dog Wash! Norwood residents have come to look forward to this day where both Fido and their car receive a good spring cleaning and are more than  happy to support this worth cause.
This fun-filled (and often wet) event has become a yearly tradition in town where washing is not the only choice on the menu. It is a one-stop canine spa day where dogs not only received a refreshing wash, but also had the opportunity to receive their rabies vaccination, microchipping, and a canine pedicure with nail clipping.
A special thanks goes out to BSAC’s partnered veterinarian and Roz at the Dirty Dawg Wash for generously offering their skills and time as well as the many volunteers who gave up their Sunday to generate funds for the cat rescue group. None of this would be possible without their efforts.
Last year, the event was postponed until September due to Covid restrictions. While still a success, this year’s contributions from the generous residents of Norwood, made for the event’s most successful year! Keep an eye out for posters, advertising, and online notifications for next year’s wash and more opportunities to assist the Bay State Animal Cooperative in helping homeless or feral cats, rescuing and adopting their precious felines.
