Columbus, OH Charity Dogwash - $20 Microchipping

Measle's Animal Haven is having a dog wash at Alum Creek Dog park in north Columbus Ohio Saturday June 27th from 10am-6pm.

We will also be microchipping dogs for just $20!

Our goal is to raise money so we can continue to save lives, and all proceeds will go directly to care for our current and future rescue dogs. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue.


FIRST, we really need dog washers!! Please contact Lisa at Lisa@pittiesplace.com or (614)853-3494 to sign up. You do not have to stay the whole day - we will be grateful for your help for even an hour or two, or you can sign up for a shift (9-12, 12-3, 3-6). It will be fun and you will be volunteering for a really good cause!

SECOND, please bring your dogs out for a bath! And if you or someone you know is interested in having a dog microchipped, please bring him or her out to see us!. A microchip permanently identifies your dog as belonging to you.

THIRD, please crosspost widely!

Thanks so much - hope to see you and your dog(s) on Saturday!!
Robin Laux
Director, Measle's Animal Haven

P.S. We are hoping to see a lot of our former rescue dogs there (dogs we rescued who have since been adopted by loving families)!!

These are the dogs of HELP FIDO...our dogs...this is why we are here...
