Down at the Dog Wash
At TâeezâA Thomas Sena Salon in Omaha, Nebraska, philanthropy is for the dogsâliterally.On July 27, the salon will host its 12th annual Dog Wash to benefit the Nebraska Humane Society. The salonâs staff and owner will put down their shears and grab the hoses as clients and their âbest friendsâ turn out in packs.
âWeâve been doing this every year since we opened in 1997, and each year we raise about $1,000,â says Thomas Sena. âThe staff does all the actual washing of the dogs, and the event usually ends in a huge water fight.â
For a minimum $10 donation, canine clients are treated to a shampoo using Paul Mitchell Dog Shampoo donated by the Aerial Company, towel dry, brushing, gourmet dog biscuits and a bandanna with the Tâeez logo.
âLast year, the staff kept track of all the dogs' names and voted for their favorites,â says Sena. âThe winners were a Rottweiler named Guido and a pair of dachshunds named Oscar and Meyer.â
If youâre in Omaha this weekend, swing by the salon with your pooch!
