Hair of the Dog Wash

Did someone say ‘”treat”? We actually said “dog wash,” Huck–but who can say no to that face?

Date: Saturday, July 15, from noon to 4:00 p.m.

Location: Jack’s Taproom (4342 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy)

Has summer fun made your furball start to smell a little funky? Stop on by our outdoor dog wash at Jack’s Taproom on Saturday, July 15, between noon-4:00 p.m. and let us take care of that for you! We’ll get your canine all cleaned up while you sit back and enjoy food and drinks from Jack’s Taproom, including a special veggie/vegan menu. All proceeds from the dog wash and 15% of all food and drink sales from the entire day will go to Animal Aid.
