Philly Dogs Rejoice!
Grab the leash, get the dog, (and call your friends with dogs!) and head over to Zoom Room Philadelphia on Saturday, February 2, 2013 to help celebrate dog ownership in Philly.
Zoom Room Philadelphia is located at 180 W Girard Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19123 (in the Shops at Schmidt’s, next to Premium Fine Wine and Spirits) and offers plenty of FREE covered parking!
The Grand Opening includes Agility classes, dog caricatures, face painting and raffles during the day and a fabulous party in the evening. All events are FREE (yes, even the classes!) and everyone is welcome!
In addition to all the fun, we are thrilled to announce that our Grand Opening will serve as a charitable fundraiser for New Leash On Life USA. New Leash On Life USA saves the lives of shelter dogs by pairing them with inmates who train and socialize them increasing their adoptability; this in turn helps the inmates build skills and increase their opportunities for future employment. It is a remarkable program that benefits both humans and dogs alike and we are hoping to be able to donate a significant amount to further their great cause.
Zoom Room will donate $10 for every person who RSVPs and attends our Grand Opening. In addition, we will donate 10% of ALL sales throughout the day to our friends at New Leash On Life USA. Help us help them!
Don’t have a dog? Don’t worry! New Leash On Life USA will be there with several very adoptable dogs that would love to go home with you!
Grand Opening Events
Free Dog Agility Classes
Every dog young and old can enjoy agility training and what better way to try it out than with a FREE class led by professional dog trainers! Classes will be held at 9:30 AM, 11:00 AM, 12:30 PM and 2:00 PM. Space is limited and these classes fill up fast, so please reserve your spot now by clicking the link at the bottom of this page!
Jake Kind, age 15, will be at Zoom Room Philadelphia from 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM drawing dog caricatures for all our guests! Jake has been an avid drawer all his life with a special love for cartooning and legal graffiti. He started drawing caricatures four years ago as a volunteer at Fox Chase Cancer Center where his Grandma is receiving treatment and has even started a company with his brother called Kind Design JR. We are so excited to include Jake in our celebration. As Jake says, “I really want to help make a difference with my art! Helping people is so important.” Perfectly said, Jake!
Dog Tattoos and Face Paint
A celebration isn’t a celebration without face paint! Local artist Erin Stein will be on hand throughout the day to add panache and flair with face painting and temporary doggy tattoos. As an added bonus, Erin is also a dog portraitist, so this is a great opportunity to capture the essence of your best friend!
Grand Opening Party!
Let the celebrating begin! From 4:30-8:00 PM we’ll host a blow-out party with great food and beverages from Philly businesses, treats for the pups, free gift bags of goodies for you and your dog to share, a Doggy Disco®, music, fun and a chance to mix and mingle with other great dog owners in Philly.
The party is open to all dog owners, accompanied by their dogs of course, and dog lovers, and is completely FREE. However, we do require that you RSVP in advance. And don’t forget, for every person that RSVPs and attends, the Zoom Room will donate $10 to New Leash On Life USA!
We look forward to meeting you, and your dog, at Zoom Room Philadelphia!
