Scrub-A-Mutt looking for 'doggie' vendors

MARYSVILLE — Scrub-A-Mutt is holding its annual fundraising dog wash on Saturday, August 18, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Strawberry Fields Park, and in celebration of their fifth year, Scrub-A-Mutt organizers will be increasing the number of booths available to pet-related merchants, as well as service and rescue groups.

In addition to the dog wash and nail trims, a K-9 demonstration by the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department will be accompanied by two additional dog demonstrations. There will also be food vendors for people at this year's event, which will once again be located at 6100 152nd St. NE, next to the Marysville off-leash dog park.

Scrub-A-Mutt is looking for vendors and organizations that sell or support dogs, both for-profit and non-profit. The 10-foot by 10-foot vendor booth spaces are $50 for businesses and $25 for rescue groups. Interested vendors and organizations can download the complete application at www.scrub-a-mutt.org or call Jennifer Ward at 360-659-9626 to learn more.

Scrub-A-Mutt raises money for three local dog charities: Old Dog Haven, the Everett Animal Shelter and the Northwest Organization for Animal Help. They make additional donations to various rescue groups after the event is completed, depending on the amount of money raised, but all event proceeds benefit pet rescue groups.
