A dog wash fundraiser was held Saturday to benefit efforts to build dog parks and a new animal shelter in Riverhead Town.

The town’s first dog park is set for a grand opening this Saturday, April 28 at the EPCAL Recreation Center on Middle Country Road in Calverton.

On Saturday, locals paid $20 to have their dog washed outside Walgreen’s in Riverhead with the money going to the non-profit “Move the Animal Shelter” group.
