Members of an automotive club are making an effort to help stray animals find homes.

The central Georgia chapter of the "Freaks of Nature" car club is hosting a summer showdown this weekend.

The club will donate money and supplies to the Houston County Humane Society, and Peach County Animal Rescue.

Organizers say they expect around 300 custom built cars, trucks, and motorcycles to enter the show.Each vehicle raises $25.

"The supplies that they collect for us, the financial donations, it really helps further our cause of helping the community get those animals off the streets," said Michelle Klingaman of the Houston County Humane Society.

"It's(about) the animals for us. We raise pit bulls, and several of us have lots of dogs. So it's all for the animals," said 'Freaks of Nature' chapter President, Jason Barnes.

The summer showdown car show will continue Sunday at North Peach Park in Byron.

Admission is $10.
