Solvang’s Monthly “Third Wednesday” Gets Decidedly Dog-Friendly with “Wine, Wash & Wag” Benefit for the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society

The October edition of Solvang’s monthly “Third Wednesday”, to be held on Wednesday, October 21, 2015, will welcome both locals and visitors and their furry friends, with an entire day for the dogs in honor of “Adopt-a-Dog Month”. Solvang Third Wednesday and the Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards Tasting Room are partnering on a special, day-long charity event, “Wine, Wash & Wag”, to serve as a fundraiser for the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society.

The dog-friendly addition to October’s Solvang Third Wednesday joins the monthly Third Wednesday deals at local merchants including boutiques of all sorts, restaurants and gourmet food purveyors; the weekly Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market; Solvang Third Wednesday discounts at local hotels; and the best way to take advantage of it all, the popular Solvang Third Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk.

Wine, Wash & Wag will entail three separate, mobile pet grooming stations strategically located in downtown Solvang, with groomers on-hand from 12 Noon to 7:00 PM for walk-up dog grooming appointments (groomers will be available from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon, by appointment only). Pam’s Pampered Pooches (805.925.2468) will be parked near the Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards Tasting Room (1645 Copenhagen Drive), while Doggy Style Mobile Grooming (805.748.1971) will be located at Wandering Dog Wine Bar (1539-C Mission Drive), with a third groomer, Bubble ‘n Squeak Mobile Grooming (805.729.7122), at Royal Oaks Winery (1582 Mission Drive).

All three of the mobile grooming stations, as well as their respective host wine stops – the Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards and Toccata Tasting Rooms, Wandering Dog Wine Bar, Royal Oaks – will donate a portion of their sales on October 21, to the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society. Adding to the good will towards dogs, many other Solvang businesses will also be donating either a portion of their October 21 sales or all tips from the day, to the SYV Humane Society, including Carivintâs Winery’s Tasting Room; Cali Love Wine; The Good Life, Craft Beer & Wine Cellar; the Olive House; Sevtap Winery; and Unique Bowtique.

In addition to mobile grooming options for all October Third Wednesday-goers’ four-legged friends, the Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society will be hosting adopt-a-dog stations scattered about Solvang, and will also post collection stations for blankets, sheets and towels, items which are much-needed at their facilities.
