Bark ‘N Bubbles Dog Wash benefits Nevada Humane Society

August 10, 2011

On Saturday, August 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Whole Foods Market will host another Bark ‘N Bubbles Dog Wash. For a minimum $10 donation, local pet owners can treat their canine pals to a bath and towel dry, courtesy of volunteers from Nevada Humane Society. For a minimum $5 donation, your dog can have a “peticure” (nail trim). All proceeds from this event will benefit the homeless animals at Nevada Humane Society. Whole Foods Market is located at 6139 South Virginia Street in Reno.

“Last month’s dog wash was the most successful ever as volunteers washed 106 dogs in a four hour period,” explained Lilli Walker, Special Events Manager for Nevada Humane Society. “In the first hour alone, volunteers washed 70 dogs – an amazing feat considering in the past we saw about 60 dogs during the entire course of the event.”

“We’re grateful to the folks at Whole Foods Market for hosting us and for helping to save homeless pets in our community,” said Bonney Brown, Executive Director of Nevada Humane Society.

Nevada Humane Society’s shelter is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno and is open Sunday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (775) 856-2000. Consider adopting a pet today and help us make Washoe County one of the safest communities for homeless pets.
