WHEN: Saturday September 19. From 11AM to 3PM
Wag'N & Bark'N Bubbles are organizing a Charity Dog Wash to benefit the Washington DC Fire Department!
Like previsously mentioned our goal is to ensure that DC Fire Battalion Chiefs and K9 Units can starts carrying Pet Oxygen Mask Kits by early October 2009. In order to make that happen we need to raise funds for 11 kits priced at $85 each.
We managed to get NoVa Dog Magazine to pledge 1 kit and raise funds through its magazine subscription and The Bid Bad Woof pet store in DC to pledge 1 kit and take donations on site.
For this upcoming event we managed to get roughly 30 volunteers to wash your pooch. The GMU Lacrosse Team is allowed to skip practice on Saturday to help out. We need dogs to wash! Lots of doggies!
I know that Ashburn VA is FAR for DC residents! The drive is well worth it though. Saturday September 19 has another great event in Ashburn! The well know holistic pet store named Dog Gone Natural is celebrating its new location.
Attending the event will be local rescue groups with dogs & puppies for adoption, pet sitters, holistic vets, photographers, and representatives from the various products offered at DogGone Natural. In addition, raffles will be held all day with prizes well over $2500.
There will be several special guests this year that will attend the event including Charles Mann (former Washington Redskins Great), The Hogettes and Chief Zee (Redskin Super-Fans). Creator of “Great Life Pet Products” and holistic doctor; Elliott Harvey will talk with the audience about animal nutrition. Elliott Harvey MH, is the author of the highly acclaimed natural healing book "The Healthy Wholistic Dog".
Finally, the day will feature the truly inspirational 2 Dogs 2000 Miles trio. Luke Robinson and his two dogs Hudson & Murphy are walking 2,000 miles, from Austin to Boston, with his two Great Pyrenees dogs over a two-year period to raise awareness of Canine Cancer. Their march is to bring awareness to this frightening issue and stimulate interest in the funding of canine oncology studies that will help not only dogs but also people.
So if you missed 2 Dogs 2000 Miles at the Wag'N 4 The Cure Event there is your chance.
Wag'N will take donations at its booth!
So what are you waiting for? Start the Adventure. Venture out the Beltway to Help the DC Fire Department and have a blast! See you there!
