The largest canine adoption event in the country is happening in the Greater Philadelphia Area, and the Amos family has been asked to lend a hand.

They not only unload the dogs on the plane, but then go back to the local animal shelter to wash these dogs. The family (and audience) fall in love with each one of these adorable puppies.
The Amos family has been to the birth place of Mark Twain before, and they have built many strong friendships there. Now, they head back to impact the town in a major way. The family partners with one of the local shelters who are in desperate need of a new facility.
Over a classic mid-west meal of Made-Rites and tenderloins, Anthony discusses his vision with Hannibal local Randy Park. The family is committed to washing dogs for a small donation, with the goal of $5,000 dollars raised. To accomplish that, they will need to wash more dogs in one day than ever before.
