Down at the Dog Wash

Down at the Dog WashAt T’eez—A Thomas Sena Salon in Omaha, Nebraska, philanthropy is for the dogs—literally.

On July 27, the salon will host its 12th annual Dog Wash to benefit the Nebraska Humane Society. The salon’s staff and owner will put down their shears and grab the hoses as clients and their ‘best friends’ turn out in packs.

“We’ve been doing this every year since we opened in 1997, and each year we raise about $1,000,” says Thomas Sena. “The staff does all the actual washing of the dogs, and the event usually ends in a huge water fight.”

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 T’eez logo.

“Last year, the staff kept track of all the dogs' names and voted for their favorites,” says Sena. “The winners were a Rottweiler named Guido and a pair of dachshunds named Oscar and Meyer.”

If you’re in Omaha this weekend, swing by the salon with your pooch!
