My family traveled to my wife's parents for Christmas. While we were away our two dogs spent time at the local doggie day spa. That is our affectionate term for the local Hanover Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals Kennel. Sounds like a strange place to send the family pets to the local SPCA but they have top notch facilities and really love on our dogs. A few years back they purchased a local kennel business to support their business of rescuing unwanted/abandoned pets.
While at the kennel our dogs get the full spa treatment. The get a 4 paw pedicure, a full body bath, and the serenade of their favorite friends barking. They even get some close together time since we found they prefer sharing the same kennel.
We love supporting this local organization and encourage you to do the same. We would rather give money to this organization for a service we need that is serving our community rather than some other commercial establishment.
