Get ready for the dog days of Summer with a clean canine!

On Saturday, June 15th, from 11am to 2pm, we're turning our patio into your dog washing & adoption center, all in benefit of Richmond Animal Care & Control. Bring your pup for a dip and treat yourself to a (hot) dog or burger while you're at it!

We'll provide the shampoo, water & baby pools -- you bring your pup and do the washing. By the time you return home, your dog will be clean (and nearly dry!) and you'll be fed and fueled to enjoy the rest of your day.

In addition to dog-washing and grilling, you'll find house-made dog treats, adoptable dogs from our friends at Richmond Animal Care and Control (RACC), and raffle items including a large dog crate, $25 Ellwood's gift card, and dog-centric gift basket. Raffle tickets are $2 and available for purchase at Customer Service starting Monday, June 10th, with all proceeds benefitting the RACC. You'll also meet representatives from Paws to Swim, a local, natural solution to canine health and well-being through aqua fitness, rehabilitation, and fun.

Enjoy burgers and hot dogs fresh off the grill (vegan options available), beer and beverage specials, and a chance to connect with fellow dog-people and their pups!

(Please note: this is an outdoor event, unless it’s raining cats & dogs... We'll keep you up-to-date on Facebook)


We've got you. Simply call us 804-359-7525 or email
