Camp Bow Wow, the nation’s fastest growing premier doggy day and overnight camp, has launched a fund raising effort on behalf of Morris Animal Foundation (MAF), and its campaign to cure dog cancer and fight other major dog diseases. Beginning June 16 at 26 Camp Bow Wow locations across the nation, doggy campers will be wearing a complimentary campaign bandana provided by Camp Counselors(R). Dog owners will have the opportunity to make a donation to MAF and their effort to cure and treat dogs with cancer, as well as other serious canine diseases. Later in the year it is anticipated the effort will roll out to more Camp Bow Wow locations.
“Camp Bow Wow, was founded upon the goal of helping dogs be happier and healthier,” says Camp Bow Wow founder, CEO and “Top Dog” Heidi Flammang. “The human parents of our doggy campers dearly love their dogs and are concerned for their health. Thus, it makes perfect sense for Camp Bow Wow to support MAF in its work to cure and treat dogs with cancer and other terrible diseases afflicting dogs.” Ms. Flammang explains each of the 26 camp locations will feature “Help Us Save Your Best Friend’s Life” posters and information for doggy parents on how to contribute to MAF.
