We currently have four community service projects underway. Two involve our Doggie Soap in order to: raise money for the local SPCA; and to supply soap to our servicemen and women overseas. The third is a reading project that benefits students at Pinewood Elementary School (a Title One school), by purchasing new books for students who need books in their homes. We also donate soap to Peace River Women’s Shelter. A small thing such as a warm bath with a beautiful soap is a tiny luxury for those women looking to leave abusive situations.
For each bar of Doggie Soap sold, we donate $1.00 to our local SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). We adopted Sarah Seuss, Polk County’s original Reading Therapy Dog, from the Lakeland SPCA . She served Polk County Schools and worked with students in the classroom for over ten years, and was nominated for “Volunteer of the Year” in 2010, at Boswell Elementary School. She was a diamond in the “Ruff!”
DOG SOAP FOR DOG TAGS
The second project is called “Dog Soap for Dog Tags.” We have found that our servicemen and women in certain parts of Afghanistan are fighting a sand flea infestation problem that makes it difficult to do their assigned duties and also to sleep. They have been requesting flea collars to wear on their belts and around their boots. We are currently partnering with Soldiers’ Angels in Pasadena, California, to provide Doggie Soap to our troops to repel the sand fleas naturally without chemicals. If you would like to donate to this worthy project, please contact Jane at (863)299-1030. My father is a WWII veteran, and Curt is a Vietnam Veteran (smile).
