Boothbay Harbor Mutt Scrub - Saturday, July 27th 2019

Welcome to the 2019 Mutt Scrub Web Page!

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP GET THE WORD OUT! Please please please drop by the shop or contact us at the information below if you can distribute posters for us. Also any shout-out on social media or otherwise is GREATLY appreciated! Thank You!

We've learned a lot since our first Scrub in 2013. For example, now we don't have gigantic clouds of poisonous wasps on the property. They have moved on to Enchantments.

But besides dodging all the wasps, what IS the Mutt Scrub? What really goes on? And are there really clouds of huge poisonous wasps?

Until 2017 we held the Mutt Scrub to raise funds for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. Then LCAS merged with Midcoast Humane, so now we raise money for Midcoast Humane. We didn't ditch LCAS. Every penny we raise goes to the shelter. We don't reimburse ourselves for advertising or other costs. The people at the shelter do such a great job in placing all kinds of animals in our region, it's the least we can do for them.

We have a core group of brainwashed kids who give up a precious July Saturday to come and wash dirty dogs. Interspersed with the kids are responsible adults who monitor tables with Raffle Prizes and and Free Samples. Our lovely and talented MC Meow Meow will lift your spirits with cheerful and sporting competitions like Doggie Musical Chairs where the last dog to sit when the music stops is OUT, and the Canine Talent Show where anything goes!

And we will be busting our butts to get even MORE gift certificates and Fantabulous prizes for 2019!

Whilst you are here, why not take a second to click on this Upbeat Video of last year's Mutt Scrub? If you are afraid of upbeat music and time-lapse photography, take a look at this Informative Video. You would be well advised not to laugh at my potato-like head. You were warned.

Other Important Stuff

We need Volunteers! Not just for dog-washing, but for table manning, check-in, raffle ticket-selling, experienced photographers, experienced dog nail trimmers, and to follow me around with a damp compress for my forehead. Well, maybe not the last thing, but you get the idea. If you're interested, please contact us. And let us know which 1-hour time block(s) you are interested in helping! Many Thanks!

Email: Mutt-Scrub@twosaltydogs.net
Phone: (207) 633-PETS (7387)
Drop in: 22 McKown St, Boothbay Harbor

Just let us know at the information above if you'd like to enter either of the Doggie Musical Chairs or the Canine Talent Show. You can also sign up the day of the event. There is no cost to enter.

Can't make it on that Saturday, but want to do your part? Helping us promote the event is just as important as scrubbing mutts! Please help us by spreading the word and forwarding this page and the raffle ticket prize pages to your unsuspecting friends. You can also download a printable version of our poster if you'd like to print and distribute it for us. You can also drop by the shop and we'll give you as many as you'd like. We really need your help with this! We give every penny we raise to the shelter and we don't reimburse ourselves for anything. We rely on YOU.

There never were any wasps. Don just gets a little excited and likes to embellish otherwise boring copy.
