After a successful pet nail trim event on Tuesday, Spike Grooming has raised another $763 for the Moose Jaw Humane Society.  

The staff of Spike Grooming run the nail trim fundraiser at Pet Valu in Moose Jaw on the last Tuesday of every month. There is no minimum donation, and one hundred per cent of what is raised goes to the Moose Jaw Humane Society.  

Megan Weiland, owner of Spike Grooming, said they’ve been extremely busy at the events so far this year. “We are averaging close to about $800 to $900 in three hours.” 

Once pets have their nails trimmed, there’s a photo backdrop at the front of Pet Valu to get pictures taken. It changes every month, with June’s “Kermit the Frog” backdrop paying tribute to famed puppeteer Jim Hensen.

Moose Jaw Girl Guides also helped make tie-dyed bandanas. “We like to give them to new customers that come in. It’s just a fun, tie-dye, flashy way to put a little bit of colour on your dog for summer,” explained Weiland.  

In addition to the monthly event, Spike Grooming also donates funds from their “walk in” nail trims at their shop to the Moose Jaw Humane Society. So far in June, the shop trims have amounted to $453.

You can call them on Mondays for information on when they’re able to offer the walk-in nail trims during that week at 306-692-8166, as times available change weekly.  

Spike Grooming is over halfway to their 2024 fundraising goal of $11,000, having raised $7,055 so far.  

“It really shows the big hearts that Moose Jaw has for animals. We are just extremely proud to be supporting the Humane Society, and in that, we’re supporting all of the animals in and around Moose Jaw,” said Weiland.  

The nail trim event at Pet Valu will not be happening in July due to staff holidays, but you can mark your calendars for their next nail trim event on Tuesday, August 27, from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
