Z Salon & Spa Fundraiser


Z Salon & Spa, 9407 Shelbyville Rd, Louisville, KY, has selected GRRAND to be its charity of the month in July.  This gracious offer allows us to publicize our organization and mission at an information booth in the lobby throughout the month of July.  We encourage our local GRRAND membership to visit Z Salon & Spa during the month of July to enjoy any of their alluring services including, but not limited to, hair coloring & texturing, body services, facials, make-up products, massages or waxing.

Schedule your appointment on Tuesday, July 25th and GRRAND will receive 5% of the cost for your pampering!  When you make your appointment and when you arrive, just mention GRRAND to ensure that your support is credited to our organization.

Z Salon & Spa will also serve as another drop-off site for kennel supply donations organized by Emma (see article below for list of needed items).  There will be a bin at GRRAND’s display table and you may leave your donations anytime during operating hours in the month of July.

Let’s show Z’s how GRRAND supports merchants who are loyal to our organization!



National Honor Society Student Chooses GRRAND for Service Project

COLLECTION DATE:  JULY 24, PLUS Monday through Saturday at Z Salon & Spa during the month of July

My name is Emma Pagni and I will be a junior at duPont Manual High School next year. My family has been following GRRAND for almost eight years now, and we have had two wonderful golden retriever rescues from the organization.  I am beyond thankful for what GRRAND has done for my family and for the breed, which is why I would like to help give back to them for my summer service project.

With GRRAND opening their new kennel later this summer, I thought they might need supplies to help start the new location.  I will be hosting a dog supply drive this summer. You can drop off supplies at the Crescent Hill Dog Park across from the Louisville Reservoir on July 24.  In addition, you can drop off supplies at Z Salon & Spa on Shelbyville Road any day during the month of July.

Appreciated Dog Supplies Include:

  • Stainless steel bowls
  • Towels
  • Kong dog toys
  • Martingale Collars with quick snap buckles (size medium and large)
  • Dog Waste bags
  • Large trash bags
  • Purina Pro Plan Chicken & Rice Dog Food (dry and canned)
  • Purple nylon leashes (6 ft.)
  • Marshmallows
  • Paper towels
  • Postage stamps
  • Gift cards for pet supplies
  • Pet wipes
  • Hand sanitizer and wipes
  • Bandanas for dogs
  • Corn free dog treats
  • Peanut butter (without xylitol)

I really hope everyone can come out at least at one of these times to help support the opening of the new kennel.  Spread the word too!
