We will be washing dogs all day to raise money for the Austin Affiliate of Susan G. Komen®. 75% of the money they raise each year is put to work right here in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties to improve the lives of everyone affected by this deadly disease.The remaining funds are dedicated to global research.

Did you know that one out of eight women will have to fight breast cancer in her lifetime? That’s why, since 1999, Susan G. Komen® Austin has been hard at work here in the Austin area raising money to provide breast cancer screening, education and medical services as well as financial and emotional support.

64227_10151693845748601_1810452220_nThis is our third annual Paws for the Cause dog wash at DogBoy’s Dog Ranch. It is hosted by DogBoy’s and put on by Jana McSwain, Office Manager and Lydia Yancey, Kennel Manager and Trainer. We volunteer our time, with the help of our staff, in an effort to raise money for a cause that is very near and dear to our hearts. In our first year we raised just under $1,000 and last year we raised $1,500 for Susan G. Komen® Austin. Come on out and help us make 2014 our most successful year yet!

You can drop off at our Training Center anytime between 8-10 am and pick-up your squeaky clean pooch from 2-5 pm. Baths are $25, nail trims are $10 or you can get both done for $30- cash or check only. All the money raised will go straight to the Austin Affiliate of Susan G. Komen®.

Walk-ins are welcome although we prefer that you schedule ahead to ensure that we have enough time to properly bathe all of the dogs. You can sign up online by clicking the “Sign Up Now!” button below (please complete one form per dog). You can also email jana@dogboys.com to sign-up or for more information.

We deeply appreciate your support and we look forward to seeing you there!
