Spa Day!! @ Hern Greyt Works
Sep 28 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Here’s the signup sheet for our bonus Spa Day on April 28th:
Spa Day – April 28, 2019

We could still use a few more volunteers to help with bathing – please
reply to me directly if you’re interested. No experience required!

We’re doing bath signups through the GPI Store website this time. You now
have the option to prepay, which will help us get people checked in more
quickly on Sunday. You can also still pay in person on the 28th via cash,
check, or credit/debit – just make sure to select that option at checkout.
As always, 100% of the proceeds go towards supporting the hounds in our
kennels. If you have any questions or run into problems with the new
signup process, please let me know.

Walk-ins are always welcome for nail trims, but baths require a
reservation. Please reserve one slot for each hound you’re bringing in for
a bath or the bath & nails package, and plan to arrive during your reserved
time slot. We can’t guarantee that we’ll get to you right when you arrive,
but spreading things out across the afternoon helps us keep things moving.

$25 – Bath & Pawdicure Package (best deal!)
$15 – Bath Only
$12 – Nails Only

The ROOtique will be open so come in and pick up some spring attire for
your hound! Mary Greenleaf will be there with her beds too.

NOTE: Greyhounds & mixes only please! Muzzles are required at Spa Day.
Please bring yours, but if you forget we will have a few loaners on-hand at
the door.

Again it’s Sunday 4/28 from 1:30pm – 3:30pm at the Hern Greyt Works kennel
in Woodinville . Please let me know if
you have any questions.

See you there!
