WHERE: Bark’N Bubbles Dog Wash. 20604 Gordon Park Sq, #170, Ashburn, VA 20147

WHEN: Saturday September 19. From 11AM to 3PM

Wag’N & Bark’N Bubbles are organizing a Charity Dog Wash to benefit the Washington DC Fire Department!

Like previsously mentioned our goal is to ensure that DC Fire Battalion Chiefs and K9 Units can starts carrying Pet Oxygen Mask Kits by early October 2009. In order to make that happen we need to raise funds for 11 kits priced at $85 each.

We managed to get NoVa Dog Magazine to pledge 1 kit and raise funds through its magazine subscription  and The Bid Bad Woof pet store in DC to pledge 1 kit and take donations on site.

For this upcoming event we managed to get roughly 30 volunteers to wash your pooch. The GMU Lacrosse Team is allowed to skip practice on Saturday to help out. We need dogs to wash! Lots of doggies!

I know that Ashburn VA is FAR for DC residents! The drive is well worth it though. Saturday September 19 has another great event in Ashburn! The well know holistic pet store named Dog Gone Natural is celebrating its new location.

You can wag by the Dog Gone Natural Festivities Saturday from 11AM to 3PM before we wash your pooch, as we wash your pooch  or after we have washed your pooch!

Attending the event will be local rescue groups with dogs & puppies for adoption, pet sitters, holistic vets, photographers, and representatives from the various products offered at DogGone Natural. In addition, raffles will be held all day with prizes well over $2500.

There will be several special guests this year that will attend the event including Charles Mann (former Washington Redskins Great), The Hogettes and Chief Zee (Redskin Super-Fans). Creator of “Great Life Pet Products” and holistic doctor; Elliott Harvey will talk with the audience about animal nutrition. Elliott Harvey MH, is the author of the highly acclaimed natural healing book “The Healthy Wholistic Dog”.

Finally, the day will feature the truly inspirational 2 Dogs 2000 Miles trio. Luke Robinson and his two dogs Hudson & Murphy are walking 2,000 miles, from Austin to Boston, with his two Great Pyrenees dogs over a two-year period to raise awareness of Canine Cancer.  Their march is to bring awareness to this frightening issue and stimulate interest in the funding of canine oncology studies that will help not only dogs but also people.

So if you missed 2 Dogs 2000 Miles at the Wag’N 4 The Cure Event there is your chance.

Wag’N will take donations at its booth!

So what are you waiting for? Start the Adventure. Venture out the Beltway to Help the DC Fire Department and have a blast! See you there!


Washington DC Fire Department Needs Pet Oxygen Masks

Wag’N is wagging its best to raise enough funds to help the Washington DC Fire Department acquire 11 PET OXYGEN MASK KITS. Each kit is priced at $85. That means we need to raise $935.In this case no shipping fees are required.


There are many ways to help:
1) If you live in DC, go by The Big Bad Woof, 117 Carroll Street NW, DC • Weekdays 10am-8pm • Weekends 10am-6pm • In the heart of Old Takoma, one block away from Takoma Red Line Stop. Donations can be made in the store.

2) If you want to help, have a dog and live in Northern VA come by Bark’N Bubbles Dog Wash Herndon Saturday September 19 between 11AM and 3PM. Wag’N volunteers will wash your pooch while you relax! Price per wash is $21. A donation box will also be available.

Every fire department across the country needs pet oxygen masks on their fire engine or to a minimum at least one per Battalion Chief.
Washington DC Fire needs more than 11 kits!
Due to the economy and the DC budget, pet oxygen mask kits need to be donated to the department at this time.

The 11 kits will be distributed as follows:
Each Battalion Chief will get 1 set (there are 7 Battalion Chiefs) and
Each K9 Unit will be outfitted with one set (there are 4 K9 Units).
The first goal is to get these 11 kits. Wag’N will keep raising funds for DC Fire!

Pet oxygen masks save pet lives. Just like humans pets suffer from smoke inhalation when there is a residential fire. Human masks are not the best fit (our facial anatomy is just too different). No one is asking the firefighters to choose human over animal life. If a firefighter saves a pet, that pet will need oxygen on the scene just like we do! Smoke inhalation can be fatal to all living beings! Please help us make a difference!

Remember that the pet’s life they save could be your own!
All help is appreciated!
