Two area businesses are taking their love of animals to the next level by adding community service to their branding.


Pawlished Pet Grooming and Boutiqe owner Michelle Daulton and her staff have partnered with The Humane Society Serving Clark County to be a drop off location for much needed donations of dry food and cat litter.


Located at 7577 Dayton Springfield Road next to the Hometown IGA, Pawlished has ample room to serve the community as a donation site. The employees have made colorful posters to share the news with their customers and anyone stopping by the busy shopping center. Michelle held a similar project last November to help homeless animals living in a shelter.


Pawlished offers grooming for all breeds of dogs and also offers services for felines. If you have a donation for the Humane Society, just drop by Pawlished . A shelter volunteer will transport the donations to the shelter.


Another area business is gearing up for the annual Dogtoberfest that will be held on October 10 from 12 to 5 this year. Brandeberry Winery located on Jackson Road in Mad River Township has held the fundraiser and adoption event for several years. Kelly Brandeberry, daughter of the winery owners started the event as a way to give back to the community. She loves animals and is very supportive of the

Humane Society and hosting one of their main fundraisers each year.


For the past two years Black Dog wine was sold at the event to help raise fund and bring awareness to the many black dogs in shelters who often are overlooked when families and individuals are looking to adopt. This year a new wine will be introduced and it is being kept as a surprise for the special event with a release at Dogtoberfest.
