Splash Schedules 'Pet Picture Day' in Wilton
to Benefit Animals in Distress, Humane Society
WILTON, CT, October 3, 2006—Splash Car Wash at 382 Danbury Road will photograph people and their pets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday October 15. Proceeds of the event will benefit Animals in Distress and the Westport Branch of the Connecticut Humane Society.
Bring your pet to Splash, make a $5 donation and a professional photographer from Jamie Collins Photography will take your picture. After the event, all participants will receive a digital copy of their photo.
“Everyone would like to have a high-quality picture of themselves or their kids with the family pet, whether it’s a cat, dog, iguana or whatever,” said Splash president and co-founder Mark Curtis. “We’re very pleased that Jamie Collins Photography is donating their time to help us assist Animals in Distress and the Humane Society, two organizations that are essential to our communities.”
Pet Pictures at Splash will take place rain or shine.
