The Deer Creek Animal Hospital's parking lot was filled with happy, clean dogs Sunday as area residents brought their dirty dogs to be washed for a good cause.

Volunteers at the event, Children's Hospital Colorado's 28th Annual Dog Wash, cleaned people’s pets for a small donation that went towards the hospital's Prescription Pet Program.

“Our dogs visit patients in the hospital in their rooms, most of the time in their beds,” said Ken Proch with Children's Colorado's Prescription Pet Program in an interview with CBS Denver at the event.
