Help us Feed Homeless Animals this Holiday Season

Our Pet Food Drive benefiting Fly Away Home Rescue Inc. of  Palisades Park NJ will begin Tuesday, December 2 through December 31st.


For 13 years now, Wag ‘N Wash, Bergen County’s 1st Do-It-Yourself Dog Wash & Professional Pet Grooming has been helping to feed animals and aid those people who do not have the money to feed their pets.  We continue our holiday tradition in 2013 and announce our annual pet food drive to benefit  Fly Away Home Rescue Inc. and the many animals from high kill, inner city shelters that they save each year. We have collected close to a total of 60,000 pounds of food for animals in the past 13 years and the amount that people donate each year increases as does their kindness. 

We have created another way for everyone to give.  Any client who orders any of our new Spa Services from December 3rd – December 31st, Wag ‘N Wash will donate 50% of all sales to FLY AWAY HOME RESCUE, INCOur Spa Services Menu is listed on our newly designed website and is located at the entrance to our shop.

From December 3rd through December 31st donations of any size bag of the following items can be dropped off at Wag ‘N Wash in East Rutherford.  The items the group is in most need of are:

Bully Sticks

Large Dog Treats (e.g. Milk bones)

Cat and Kitten Toys

Cat Food (Friskies, Nine Lives wet and dry)

Blankets, Sheets, Towels (can be used but clean)

Fuzzy Dog Toys

Items can be dropped off from Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays 11:00 AM – 7:00 P.M, Wednesdays from 2:00–9:00 P.M. and Saturdays from 9:00 – 4:00 at the salon.   All food collected will be donated to Fly Away Home Inc. For more information or directions, please contact Wag N Wash at 201-729-1555.

Please join us in helping orphaned animals. All proceeds will help benefit Fly Away Home Inc. Inc, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation that relies solely donations and fund-raising activities for its income. Within the past year, Fly Away Home Inc. has saved many cats and dogs from death and rescued them from terrible lives in crowded city shelters waiting to die. They have provided extensive medical, emotional and social rehabilitation, and placed many abused and neglected animals in loving homes to live out their lives as cherished family members. Every day, beautiful, sensitive and unwanted animals are being destroyed in pounds and shelters, that is why their work is so necessary.



Fleas are on the warpath

Fleas are on the warpath this season.

Please apply a topical flea preventative to your dog before he comes in for his grooming appointment.  And, refrain from using Frontline as, your vet will tell you, the fleas have become immune to it.

You can get Advantage online or at Petco or you can check with your vet on the new products to combat these seemingly invincible creatures.

Also note that we do not use any flea control shampoos with D-Limonene.  We use only organic Neem which does the job in killing fleas and ticks.

Your pet’s safety is our number one priority.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

With this in mind, Wag ‘N Wash will once again be doing their 3rd Annual Promotion with different recipients.

We will now be donating 50% of total sales on any additional services ordered ( i.e. tooth brushing, paw massages, facials, bootie bling, ear bling etc.) to the American Cancer Society or the National Canine Cancer Foundation.  The choice is yours.  It will not cost much to help Women fight Breast Cancer or dogs with many different kinds of Cancer.  Facials are $5.00, Teeth $7..why not order two services.

We have raised $900 in funds to fight cancer for the past 3 years..please help us by ordering additional services for your pet from Oct. 1 – Nov. 3.  We thank you.
