Pets at Home in Dundee is recruiting local dogs to participate in a Guinness world record attempt — all while raising money to help re-home pets across the UK.
Groom Rooms at 85 Pets at Home stores across the north of England and Scotland will attempt to beat the current Guinness world record of washing 5,000 dogs in a 12-hour period on Saturday September 16 from 8am-8pm.
The Groom Room at Kingsway Retail Park is appealing for hundreds of dog owners to book their pets into the salon for a £5 wash and dry, with all proceeds going to animal rescue charity Support Adoption For Pets.
Siobhan Smith, salon manager at Dundee’s Groom Room, said: “We’re really excited at taking part in this Guinness world record attempt and with all the proceeds going towards helping homeless pets, it really makes the whole thing worthwhile.
“In order to reach our fundraising target and beat the record, we need to roll our sleeves up and wash 240 mucky pups in six-minute time slots.
“It really is a challenge but we’d love local dog owners to help us scrub up and reach both of our goals.”
