Mutt Scrub a success

Dear Editor:

Two Salty Dogs Pet Outfitters would like to thank all the folks that helped make the seventh annual Mutt Scrub a huge success!  Thanks to the generosity of so many community members, visitors, and local merchants, over $4,600 was raised for Midcoast Humane.  We enjoyed a spectacular sunny afternoon with tons of wonderful dogs and their loving families. An amazing team of volunteers washed 63 dogs and trimmed the nails of 30 dogs. We cannot thank all these volunteers enough and truly appreciate their continued support!

And as in prior years, local businesses really came through in support of the shelter and donated outstanding raffle prizes.  Many thanks to the generous supporters at Footbridge Brewery, Eventide, Coastal Dog, Robinson’s Wharf, Boathouse Bistro, Newagen Inn, Bistro 233, TurnKey Vacation Rentals, Ports of Italy, Newcastle Publick House, Creature Comforts Pet Care, Paws Awhile, Harborside Tavern, Pinkham’s Seafood, Thistle Inn, Silver Lining, Boothbay Canine, Cozy’s Dockside, Brady’s, China by the Sea, Capers, Gimbels, Sherman’s, Tugboat Inn, Blue Moon Café, Shannon’s Unshelled, Coastal Maine Popcorn, Dirty Bird Pottery, Kalers, Pier 1 Pizza, Waves, Boothbay Lobster Wharf, Dunton’s Doghouse, Orne’s Candy Store, and Janson’s.

We would also like to thank Stray Duck Foto and Lot Dogs who joined us for the first time.  And a special thank-you to our friends at Old Dogs New Digs.  Stop by Two Salty Dogs to purchase a 2020 calendar and support this fantastic organization. We think the August models are particularly handsome.

Lastly thanks to Abby and Stephanie from Midcoast Humane. Three adorable puppies all went home with loving families and we look forward to seeing these pups a year older at next year’s Mutt Scrub!
