Tick Testing Clinic @ Hern Greyt Works
Jun 5 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

It’s that time again, less than one month away!
What: Early Summer Low-Cost Tick Disease Testing Clinic
When: Sunday, June 5, 2022
Deadline to Register: Wednesday, June 1st

We are conducting an Early Summer Low-Cost Tick Disease Testing Clinic on Sunday afternoon, June 5th, at the Hern Greyt Works (Kennel) in Woodinville.

Obviously, we will again be doing this clinic by following the current protocols used by Veterinary clinics.
We are restricting access to the Kennel building. As before, you will be required to register and pay online. In addition, you must secure an appointment slot. If you’ve already tested your dog but want to help fund testing for our available dogs at the GPI Kennel, please donate. Any amount is very appreciated. If any of the dogs test positive and the consulting Veterinarian recommend a treatment, the dog will be treated before being adopted.

Please arrive at your scheduled time and follow the GPI Volunteer’s instruction on where to wait. You and your dog will remain in the car (please wear your face masks) until a GPI volunteer meets you at your car to receive your dog. Our wonderful GPI volunteer Veterinarians will be drawing the blood inside our building and once your dog’s blood is drawn, our GPI volunteer will return your dog back to you.

Our volunteer, Bev Mitchell, has set up the links below to sign up if you want your dog to be tested on Sunday, June 5th.
If your dog had a past positive to the Babesia Canis or any other Tick Borne Diseases, this will be a good opportunity to do a PCR test.

Please start here and read this page completely:
Main link to the Tick Clinic Collection of products: https://shopgpi.org/collections/event-tick-testing-clinic

You’ll need to complete both Step 1 and Step 2 for each dog your are testing. Please choose the earliest arrival time available.
Step 1 (to choose the arrival time):
https://shopgpi.org/products/tick-clinic-registration-june-5-2022-choose-your-test-time

Step 2 (same as the main link, just click then scroll down to the bottom of this page to choose the test you want):
https://shopgpi.org/collections/event-tick-testing-clinic

** Please note you need to make sure you have both items (arrival time and test type) in the cart when you complete you order/registration. Also, please make sure that you physically type the dog’s name, age, gender and GPI tag # (if known) into the text box just above the “Add to Cart” button.

To donate to an available dog at the GPI kennel:
https://shopgpi.org/products/donate-to-the-tick-clinic-all-gifts-go-toward-testing-our-available-dogs-select-an-amount-or-a-specific-test-amount-from-the-drop-down-menu-below-tax-deductible-id-82-0434711-6-5-2022

Everything can be done in one transaction, even if you are registering multiple dogs for the clinic.
This video was made for another event, but the way to add multiple items to your cart works the same.

Spa Day!!
Jun 25 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Spa Day!! @ Woodinville | Washington | United States

Summer is here which means it’s time for another Spa Day! Please read below for details. We’ll be open on Saturday, June 25th between 1:30 and 3:30pm for both baths and nail trims. If you want to bring your pup(s) in for a bath, you’ll need to reserve a slot for each dog via the “Events” section of the GPI store.

The Menu:
– Bath Signup ($25):
https://shopgpi.org/products/spa-day-reserve-a-time-slot-for-a-bath-march-26-2022
– Add a nail trim to a bath ($10):
https://shopgpi.org/products/spa-day-march-26-2022-add-nail-trim-to-bath-package

– Nail trim only ($15):
https://shopgpi.org/products/spa-day-march-26-2022-nail-trim-only-nails-only-no-bath

– Donate a spa package to an available hound:
https://shopgpi.org/products/donate-a-spa-day-package-to-an-available-hound-at-the-gpi-kennel-tax-deductible-id-82-0434711

*** Mobile device users: use the “Events” tab in the main menu to switch between Spa Day service options.

When you arrive, please park near the main entrance and come to the front door for check-in. We’ll have a runner come out to bring your dogs in for their bath. For everybody’s safety we are still not allowing human visitors into the bathing or nail trim area – no exceptions.

Please reserve one slot for each hound you’re bringing in for a bath or the bath & nails package. No signup is necessary if you’re only having nails done, but we’d appreciate it if you could prepay on the GPI website to make things easier for us. If you’re signing up for both a bath and nail trim, make sure both are added to your cart before checking out. You can use the “Events” menu at the top of the page to quickly get back to the Spa Day listings.

We can’t guarantee that we’ll get to you right when you arrive, but having appointments spread out across the afternoon should keep the wait times to a minimum. Please do not arrive before your scheduled time as parking is limited. Once you’ve signed up, you should get a confirmation email. If you don’t see it, make sure to check your junk/spam folder! If you have any questions or run into problems with the signup process, please email me at [email protected]

The ROOtique will be open as well, but we are still limiting the number of people in the building at one time so please be patient.

Again it’s Saturday, June 25th from 1:30pm – 3:30pm at the Hern Greyt Works kennel in Woodinville (https://goo.gl/maps/EfkrM3JXqSkm2ShP6). Please let me know if you have any questions – my email address again is [email protected]

See you there!

Thanks,
Mike

12th Annual Walkathon @ Lynndale Park
Aug 20 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
12th Annual Walkathon @ Lynndale Park | Lynnwood | Washington | United States

We are thrilled to announce our 12th Annual Walkathon on August 20, 2022, at
the Lynndale Park in Lynnwood, WA.

Please save the date and mark your calendars.

SUPPORTERS LIKE YOU…
…help us support dogs like JUNIPER, who was hit by a car and came to GPI by
way of a California shelter, CHARLESTON, who came to us with a badly healed
broken leg that doesn’t slow him down, the Saluki mix, KAI, who was found as a
stray in the mountains of Kauai, and this year’s Walkathon Mascot, BUBU, who
came to us from Macau, China, did not have a good early life and still awaits
his forever home.

WHILE OUR COSTS HAVE GONE UP, OUR HEARTS REMAIN THE SAME…
…as we are drawn to take in more dogs from different areas. In 2021 we
brought in 137 dogs and found forever homes for 156. Our transport,
transitional care and vetting costs averaged $1,700 per dog, while our total
veterinary care expense was over $140,000.

You are the reason we can continue to do this important work – please help us
help these dogs in need.

There are many ways you can help us reach our goal of $55,000: register to
walk, donate to a friend who is walking and sponsor your business!

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Thank you for your very generous support!
