Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming to Launch Second Annual Round Up for Freedom Service Dogs Campaign

Specialty Pet Retailer Aims to Raise More Than $10,000 for Service Dog Nonprofit This November

November 01, 2019 // Franchising.com // CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming continues its national partnership with nonprofit Freedom Service Dogs to launch its second annual fundraising campaign this November. Named Round Up for Freedom Service Dogs, the campaign aims to raise money to help veterans regain their independence by obtaining the assistance they need from a service animal – free of cost.

From Nov. 1 to Nov. 30, all Wag N’ Wash locations will give customers the option to round up to the nearest dollar during check out. All proceeds will go toward Freedom Service Dogs’ mission of helping veterans who have made life-altering sacrifices unite with service dogs from the program. All dogs are rescues and go through extensive training at each state’s penitentiary, followed by additional specialized training to meet the needs of the veterans.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Freedom Service Dogs,” said Rob Flanagan, president of Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming. “This is an initiative that we hold close to our hearts, as supporting companions, our customers and every community we serve is a top priority. Rounding up is a powerful, yet simple way to help get our customers involved. Plus, to honor our previous campaign, Wag N’ Wash Headquarters will match up to $5,000 in donations from customers.”

Wag N’ Wash held a successful first campaign to benefit Freedom Service Dogs in 2018, exceeding its goal by $2,000. This campaign also earned the silver award in the “Support Our Veterans” category during the International Franchise Association’s Franchising Gives Back ceremony. The brand continues to make its mark in the franchise and pet industry with its dedication to providing the best services and products to pet lovers and their companions. Round Up for Freedom Service Dogs will be no exception as Wag N’ Wash aims to connect its customers with the heart-warming services of Freedom Service Dogs.

This year’s campaign will feature added fundraising efforts generated through a GoFundMe page, which has an individual goal of $5,000, for those who do not have the opportunity to “round up” in stores or want to donate additional dollars to the cause. Through a partnership with KLN Family Brands, every customer who donates in stores, as part of Round Up Freedom Service Dogs, will receive a complimentary bag of dog treats.

Since Wag N’ Wash opened its first store in Colorado Springs in 1999, the company has been the leading place for pet guardians to find quality goods and services for their companion pets and simply be pet people. It is the only pet retailer that offers a self-wash station, full-service grooming, a bakery and pet food. In addition, the store’s offerings are various brands of all-natural pet foods for dogs and cats, supplements, collars and leashes, toys, supplies and unique goods. Wag N’ Wash’s do-it-yourself dog wash facility is designed to put convenience and fun into the “chore” of washing your dog.

About Freedom Service Dogs

Freedom Service Dogs (FSD), based in Englewood, Colorado, was founded by Michael and PJ Roche who transformed it from a two-person organization to one of the leading service dog training organizations in the country. As FSD expanded, the Roches recognized a need for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan to have additional support as they entered civilian life, leading to the launch of Operation Freedom, a program that provides disabled veterans with trained service dog companies. Since 1987, the organization has graduated hundreds of client-dog teams.
