  • Bath-A-Thon Fundraiser

    We actually did a few of these for charity, and got some new customers as a bonus. It was all the free press that helped so if you do one make sure the media covers it.

    Stepping through the front door of Sean Patrick's Pet Spa, visitors are greeted with the wagging tails of Sean Patrick Dowling's own dogs running to the latest barking client.

    Dowling's Main Street pet grooming storefront business will celebrate its 10-year anniversary on April 2 with a bath-a-thon fundraiser to support Oldies But Goodies Cocker Rescue.

    Pet spa employees will bathe dogs and collect donations for the Virginia-based rescue group during Sunday's event, which will also feature a spinning wheel game for families as well as baked goods for people and their dogs.

    Marilyn Kessinger, the state foster coordinator for Oldies But Goodies, said the rescue group was established in 1996, specializing in the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of cockers and spaniel mixes of all ages in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The volunteer organization typically has between 50 and 100 dogs at one time, she said, finding homes for more than 300 dogs each year.
    Coordinators post updates to the message for grooming events, members contests, Classified Ads, GroomerTALK Radio shows and Magazine online.
