It is with a heavy heart that we are cancelling Mutt Scrub this year. When we got down to brass tacks, we:

1) Didn't feel right about asking local businesses for gift certificates and donations given the economic situation.

2) Couldn't do the musical chairs or talent show safely.

3) Couldn't have our volunteers wash dogs safely.

4) Don't know if there will be a second, more severe lockdown.

We won't be completely shutting it down. We're trying to rally by having a "Cyborg Mutt Scrub" and raffling off some items we already have, donating a percentage of all July web sales to Midcoast Humane and Old Dogs New Digs. And most importantly, my employees thought it would be great to raise money by humiliating me. I have to admit, it has fund-raising potential. Take a quick trip to our newsletter and go to the "Sniffin' Around the Boothbay Region" below for more details. DON'T just scroll down to the blog like most of you normally do. Look, I worked really hard to put this all together, dammit.

Or you can just send me a bunch of money and hope it gets to the charities and not the insurmountable bar tabs I have around town. Haha! Just kidding!

Send checks, cash, untraceable bearer bonds, Arby's gift certificates and any untraceable family jewelry to:

The Vile Sadist Employees at
Two Salty Dogs Pet Outfitters
22 McKown St
Boothbay Harbor ME 04538

Please make the checks / bearer bonds out to either Midcoast Humane or Old Dogs New Digs.

P.S. I understand it should be "Cyber Mutt Scrub." Don't ruin my fun.
