KINGSTON — People got their cars washed and helped a dog in need at the same time.
A car wash was held by Modified K9 at Firestone in Kingston to help a pit bull terrier mix named Louie who is fighting cancer.
Modified K9 is an organization that supports dogs and their owners.
It cost $5 for the wash. Organizers hoped to raise at least $700.
Louie is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
“My sister’s been through a lot, um, in her personal life, and uh, louie has been a support system for her, to help her get through some challenging times in her life,” said Karen Sims with Modified K9.
Along with the car washes, there were dog basket raffles and plenty of food at the event in Luzerne County.
All of the proceeds went to Louie’s medical treatment.
