The Guinness World Records' record for th most dogs washed in 8 hours by a team of 12 people is 1,037. It was organised by 'Dierenspeciaalzaak 't Guppy' in Ede, Netherlands.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most dogs washed in 8 hours by an individual, which is 80, by Amanda Sullivan-Webb (UK) at The College of West Anglia, Cambridgeshire, UK.
"We received just over $4,000 in pledges, which is great!" said Keyana Simone, a volunteer with the rescue group who had the idea for the wash-a-thon, The U-T San Diego reported.
"That money will go directly to new, state-of-the-art kennels we're purchasing."
She said she expects it to be an annual event.
The groups shared use of The Barking Lot's regular wash tub, which is inside the facility at 486 Raleigh Ave, and then set up mobile bathing stations in play yards outside. Peanuts Pets Services let the group borrow its mobile bathing stations for the record setting attempt.
