Dogs in Longmont are getting “Pinked”

Denver Post puts the spotlight on pinking

Breast Cancer Awareness

Canines at Longmont’s Zoom Room location got pink ribbons dyed into their fur to mark the observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For a $5 donation, owners were able to “pink” their dog and the proceeds went to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Zoom Room owner Marnie Johnson credits the idea to a hairdresser who used the pink ribbon motif last year.

Johnson, who previously worked for a couple of animal rescues, figured the idea would work at the Zoom Room, where dogs can train and pets and owners can socialize.

“The pink is hair coloring and we put it in places where the dogs can’t lick it,” she said.
