“New Us” – In our June newsletter we shared with you all the changes that we have made to our business (and personal lives) resulting from the pandemic.

Charity Dog Wash – Mark this date in your calendar for our 6th annual charity dog wash – Saturday, August 15 from 11am to 2pm!

We are supporting Finding Them Homes rescue again this year – check out their website for more information about the rescue! www.findingthemhomes.com

Facebook – Have you visited our Facebook page? We keep you updated with news, weekly photos, videos, and events. Follow this link - www.facebook.com/TheePlaceForPawsPetRetreat to visit the page.

While you are there we invite you to write a review/recommendation – many new clients find us through Facebook and seeing your reviews really helps! Feel free to “like” anything on the page and if you have questions you can message us directly. Enjoy seeing all the fun we have around here!

Mark These Dates In Your Calendar – Please mark these dates in your calendars that we will have limited services or will be closed to the public. We will remind you of these dates in each monthly newsletter:

Friday, September 11 – daycare services available; grooming is available; all boarding dogs to be picked up

Saturday, Sept. 12 to Sunday, Sept. 20 – closed to the public (re-open for regular hours on Sept. 21)

There will be other dates throughout the year that are not listed here we will let you know about (statutory holidays for example). We will always keep you informed of these dates!

That’s all for now…thank you everyone for all your support and friendship – we appreciate it! Shawn & Sandy
