Heroes come in all sizes. I like to think all the people in the dog community in the Twin Cities are heroes that work to make our home the best dog loving place around. We are taking time in September to remember some bigger heroes that serve near and far. Starting September 6th we are doing Hero Week at Bubbly Paws. Current armed forces, veterans, police officers and firefighters will receive half-price baths through September 14th. In addition everyone who brings their dog in the week of September 6th to 14th, whether for self or full service, we will donate $5 from their bath or grooming to one of two local groups that support our Heroes: Pets Loyal 2 Vets a non-profit that connects military veterans with highly trained companion and therapy dogs in Minnesota at no cost to them and Police K9 Invest Project that raises funds for Minnesota Police K9 Units to purchase protective vests and equipment for our canine officers. At no extra cost to you we will give you the option to give $5 from your service to one of the two organizations. If you can’t choose which organization you’d like your donation to go to you can even have it split between both. Remember the more dogs that come in for baths and grooming the more we can raise for these great causes!
You might recognize Brigitte from visits to either of our Bubbly Paws locations but you probably don’t know about her service. Brigitte is in the Minnesota Army National Guard and she has been serving for 7 years. She chose to join after high school to find what direction she wanted to go in her career path and gain life experience both inside and outside her military service. I want to take a minute to thank her and all our service members keeping our community safe near and far from home. Please come in to Bubbly Paws between September 6th and 14th and show your support for our Heroes!
