Wicked Auto Films and Detailing Loves Dogs; Hosts Cars, Coffee & Canines Benefit Event

Canine-Friendly Event to Benefit Orange County, CA Dog Rescue, Barks of Love

(Santa Ana, CA) January 3, 2022 – Wicked Auto Films and Detailing has teamed up with local Orange County animal rescue Barks of Love to present a special canine-friendly Cars & Coffee benefit event. The date and time of the event have changed to Sunday, January 16 from 9-11 am, in the parking lot of the Marconi Automotive Museum, 1302 Industrial Dr, Tustin, CA 92780. There is no fee for parking and owners are encouraged to bring their dogs. This special Cars & Coffee event is being held to raise money and awareness for Barks of Love, with Wicked Auto Detailing donating 10% of each service booked to Barks of Love.

Established in Fullerton, CA in 2008, Barks of Love is a volunteer animal rescue that helps provide homes to neglected, abandoned, and abused animals, as well as education on animal abuse and euthanization. Utilizing a wide network of remote volunteers, Barks of Love connects foster families with dogs in need which reduces the load on local shelters and lowers euthanization rates. Each dog fostered receives the love and care that they desperately need as well as the rehabilitation and retraining that makes the transition into a “forever home” smooth for both the dog and adopting family. With over a 90 percent adoption rate, Barks of Love is a beacon of hope for abandoned and abused animals and provides them with a second chance at a loving and happy life.

“I found out about Barks of Love when I adopted my dog Taco in 2013 as a companion for my corgi, Waffles,” said Steve Goelman, Marketing Director at Wicked Auto Films and Detailing. “Everyone at Wicked Auto Films and Detailing has and loves dogs. I rarely see a day in the office without some furry friends, so we’re really excited that Barks of Love will be at the event.”

Wicked Auto Films and Detailing will be welcoming all leashed dogs and their owners, and providing fresh, hot coffee and donuts. All unopened dog food, new dog toys, and monetary donations will also be accepted. A silent auction will also be held at the event. All donations will go directly to Barks of Love. In addition, Wicked Auto Films and Detailing will be donating 10% of each service booked to Barks of Love when a deposit is left at the event.
