Local dogs took to the beach for the 'Dog Wash for Heroes' event in Jupiter on Saturday

JUPITER, Fla. - Saturday was truly a great day at the beach for dozens of dogs who got some extra pampering for a good cause.

After romping around in the sand and the water, the dogs were welcomed in at the Square Grouper Tiki Bar in Jupiter.

There they were treated to a hand wash and towel dry by volunteers as part of the "Dog wash for Heroes" event.

"He was loving it, usually he goes to the dog groomer hes shaking, but he was loving being pampered by those ladies over there," said Pat Deshong.

The pampering ended with a treat and a handmade bandana.

All of todays proceeds went to the United States War Dogs Association, a nonprofit supporting military k-9s and their handlers around the world.
