Oakwood Cleaners Hosts Fundraiser for Blaze!

Helping a dog in need is as easy as getting your clothes dry cleaned. During the month of June every piece you have freshened up with our friends at Oakwood The Greener Cleaners will support Blaze and her journey to find a forever home.

How is this possible you ask? Blaze has a condition that causes her to experience ongoing arthritis. But, this 3-year-old, 15-pound dachshund-terrier mix doesn’t let her disorder slow her down — she’s ready to share her spunky attitude and love with her forever family. She will be making two special appearances at the stores so you’ll have the chance to meet her and shake her hand!

Oakwood Cleaners will donate a percent of their month’s proceeds from all three locations —White Bridge, Cool Springs and Hermitage — to help cover the medical care for our special foster pup and others in the Agape Animal Rescue program. Have some extra change but all your clothes are clean? No worries, you can run through their convenient drive thru to leave your spare change in donation jars at each location to support Blaze!

“When my husband Alan and I took ownership of Oakwood Cleaners six years ago, I immediately wanted to show support for unplaced animals,” says Rhonda Wernick, owner of Oakwood Cleaners. “I implemented a program called ‘Cuddles for Critters,’ which re-purposes used blankets and such for animals at rescue shelters. It seemed like a perfect partnership to help Agape with their endeavors to help lost dogs in need of forever homes.”

Blaze has two paw signing appearances scheduled and yes, all “puparazzi” are welcome! You heard right, stop by for puppy kisses and go home with your very own autographed picture of the famous Blaze!

Saturday, June 10, 12 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cool Springs
Wednesday, June 21, 4 to 6 p.m. White Bridge

“When given the opportunity to sponsor a dog in need, we were thrilled to accept the challenge,” Wernick says. “Please help us help Blaze get the medical attention she needs so she can be placed in a forever home.”
