LANSING, Mich. — On August 21st a state-wide treasure hunt is taking place across Michigan.

The treasure hunt starts at 10 a.m. and is being put on by The Blue Chihuahua, an entertainment company based in Michigan.

The treasure you'll be searching for is a dog bone-shaped dog tag with "Gru's Treasure" engraved on the front and a special code on the back worth $5,000!

Why Gru's Treasure?

Gru is the name of Liz Kurth's former shelter dog and the Chief Dog Officer of this hunt.

Kurth is the owner of The Blue Chihuahua and says that for each hunt held by The Blue Chihuahua, they will donate $5,000 to a local animal shelter. The shelter receiving funds for this hunt will be Michigan's Al-Van Humane Society, Gru's former shelter home.

The "Gru's Treasure" dog bone will be hidden anywhere in the state of Michigan besides the Upper Peninsula.

Clues will be given out every 24 hours after the hunt has started at 10 a.m. on the 21st.
