Launch Event Recap – West Springfield, Massachusetts at Dakin Humane Society

HydroDog West Springfield’s first benefit event for Dakin Humane Society was a great success!  Many dogs were washed, as their owners braved the cool late winter weather to support the great cause of raising money for shelter dogs!   

All money raised through dog washing donations at the event will be provided to Dakin Humane Society.  More events like this one are being planned throughout the year in the West Springfield area, just as they will continue to emerge throughout the United States as new HydroDog franchises open up from coast to coast.   

Not only was the first HydroDog America Franchisee Jody Maple doing his part in bathing the dogs, but HydroDog Founder Anthony Amos, his wife Rachel, and their children were on hand to assist with the operation of the event.   

Also integral to the event was Area Representative Kristen Clark.  Kristen is deeply involved with coordination and promotion of shelter benefit events like this, as well as with other shelter dog benefit promotions and with the launch and management of new HydroDog franchises within Massachusetts.   

HydroDog West Springfield’s benefit launch event follows HydroDog Groomer Jody Maple’s winning third place among many experienced groomers in a competition sponsored by the IJA at the Columbus Pet Expo and his graduation from the prestigious Academy grooming school in Lexington Kentucky earlier in March.   

Jody and Lesley will be conducting many more public benefit events to support shelter dogs in the area, while also participating in the promotion of other community activities in dog rescue circles.  Contact Jody to schedule a grooming appointment for your dog(s), and you can also discuss getting involved in local events in your area!
