At TâeezâA Thomas Sena Salon in Omaha, Nebraska, philanthropy is for the dogsâliterally.
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!
