Heppner's Auto Wash & Detailing of Woodbury hosted its inaugural carwash fundraiser for Animal Ark on April 18. Proceeds from each carwash were donated to provide care for the pets at the no-kill shelter in Hastings.
Local merchants participating in the event included Sati Coffee & Crepes, Sojos Pet Foods, Cookies by Design, Champps Restaurant, Short Stop Liquors and Finishing Touch Car Care, Inc.
Donations were collected, as well as proceeds from a raffle.
The Animal Ark Neuter Commuter was on site with cats and dogs.
The owner of Heppner's Carwash plans on having another benefit in the fall to help bring in more donations for the animals.
