Holiday House Pet Resort Announces Charity Dog Wash

Marley, Claire, Nate & Gigi are helping raise money for the Bekos Family.
Holiday
House Pet Resort is inviting all dirty dogs to clean up for a good cause during
its Hope for Hails Dog Wash now
through March 15, 2014. The promotion will help raise funds for Hailey Bekos
and her family while the local teen battles a rare illness.
Dog
owners may purchase a Premium Bath at the luxury grooming salon for a reduced
price and half of the proceeds will benefit the Bekos Family Trust, a fund
established to support the Doylestown family. Dog Washes are being reduced by
75% to $30 and include: bubble bath, brush out and blow dry, nail clipping, ear
cleaning; plus a choice of dog massage, blueberry facial, nose and pad
conditioning treatment or de-shedding treatment. 
Holiday
House Pet Resort, located at 380 North Shady Retreat Road in Doylestown, has
already raised $750 for the Bekos Family Trust since the Dog Wash promotion
began in January. For more information about Hailey and the Bekos Family trust,

“It is heartening to see the
community rally around Hailey and her family and we wanted to help as well,”
said veterinarian Laura Weis, co-owner of Holiday House Pet Resort and
Doylestown Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Weis explained that the
idea for the Dog Wash Fundraiser came from 9-year-old local student Claire
McDonnell who attends Doyle Elementary. McDonnell has been joined by Dr. Weis’
son Nate to help promote the Fundraiser to their respective schools and the
community. 

“Lots of people have dogs and I
thought a Dog Wash would be a good way to raise money for Hailey,” said
McDonnell. “I love my dog, Marley, and knew this would be the perfect way for
us to help, too.”
Nate Weis, an eighth-grader at
the River Valley Waldorf School, agreed: 
“Hailey should be playing and having fun with her friends, going to
school and loving her family. I hope that the Dog Wash will reach many people
and their pets who want to help Hailey as well.”
Anyone without a dog who is
interested in supporting Hailey may purchase a Dog Wash as a gift or donate the
pampering experience to a homeless foster dog with Lulu’s Rescue, an animal
rescue group where Hailey volunteered. Hailey’s work with Lulu’s earned her a
community service award in sixth grade. For more information about scheduling
or purchasing a Dog Wash, call 215-345-6960.
