The Dog (Wash) Days of Summer Are Here

Manatawny Tasting Room Hosting Dog Wash Benefit for Morris Animal Refuge – this Saturday

Manatawny Still Works, Mid-Atlantic Craft Distillery

Has the recent heat left your canine companion a little stinky? Then bring ’em to Manatawny Still Works Craft Spirits Shop & Tasting Room, 1603 East Passyunk Avenue, this Saturday, July 7 from noon to 4 p.m. for a bath! For $20 your pup will be pampered and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Morris Animal Refuge located at 1242 Lombard Street.

Manatawny, which opened on East Passyunk Avenue in 2017, has a history of holding animal rescue-related fundraisers. The charitable work began in 2014 after owner and master distiller Max Pfeffer rescued a pit bull he named Piper. To help other dogs like Piper, the company created The Piper Project, through which a portion of proceeds from the sale of their Three Bitches Wheat Vodka benefit rescue organizations.

This is the company’s first time doing a dog wash event. Manatawny’s marketing director Kira Carpov said “it’s a perfect fit for East Passyunk Avenue since this is an extremely dog-friendly area with dog friendly restaurants and bars.”

Art Etchells, Manatawny’s manager in Philadelphia explained that the company approached Morris Animal Refuge about the partnership, “Morris will provide volunteers to help wash dogs and Manatawny is doing everything else!”

Dogs will be washed and rinsed in kiddie pools right outside the establishment. Amelie’s Bark Shop, the pet boutique located at 1544 East Passyunk Avenue, will donate the shampoo. 100% of the profits from the dog wash will go directly to Morris Animal Shelter.

If you’d like to help but don’t have a dog, or your dog is bath-averse, Manatawny has created two additional “spirited” ways to benefit Morris Animal Rescue:

  • On Saturday, between noon and 11 p.m., sales of a specialty vodka cocktail will benefit Morris.
  • Profits from the sales of bottled vodka in July will be dedicated to the organization.

Cheers!
