We are a family of five Anthony: Rachel, Bella (13),
Austin (12) and Aria (11). We are passionate about the
welfare of our four-legged friends. So much so that we
recently purchased and moved into a 40ft motor coach and are
touring America for an up close and personal lesson in U.S.
history and to raise money and awareness for animal rescues.
Since only 30 percent of pets in homes are adopted from
shelters, we need to make a change. Our plan: the Bathe to
Save National Tour.
Our Bone of Contention
- Approximately 3.9 million animals (1.2 million dogs) are killed in U.S. shelters each year.
- One unspayed dog & her unaltered offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in seven years.
- Only one out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home.
- 60% of dogs in shelters never find a home.
- Many strays are lost pets not properly kept indoors or microchipped.
- All dogs should be treated equal despite their breed.
There are over 165 million households in the U.S.; 79.7 million have pets. NO dogs (animals) should be killed in shelters. They truly can all be saved.
As dog lovers, we’re passionate about the well-being of our furry friends and want to raise awareness of the numerous benefits of animal adoption.
Leading the pack
Catering to all breeds and sizes of dogs, the Bathe to Save National Tour brings HydroDog’s traditional grooming services directly to communities, animal rescue groups/organizations, and businesses (especially pet-centric) across the U.S. to not only raise awareness of the benefits of animal adoption but to ultimately save the lives of dogs.
Every Dog Will Have Its Day
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals estimates 3.9 million dogs enter animal shelters each year.
1.2 million adoptable dogs are killed simply because there was no one to adopt them.Since one in every three homes in our
native Australia has a family pet and 65 percent of U.S. households, or 79.7 million residences, are home to at least one
pet, we are thrilled to raise awareness to the needs of animal rescues/organizations through the Bathe to Save National
Tour as we travel across the U.S.
With annual sales expected to surpass $60 billion in 2015, the pet industry is one of America’s largest. According to the
American Pet Products Association (APPA), pet owners will spend approximately $5.24 billion on pet services such as
grooming and boarding this year alone.
As the Bathe to Save Team rolls across the nation in the big blue bus and raises awareness, Pack Leaders, Anthony and
Rachel, together with Kevin Harrington from the Shark Tank and other celebrities are reaching out to build relationships
with individual animal rescues and organizations that support their missions. They are also the tour’s media
spokespersons and responsible for delivering key messages while promoting the sponsoring organizations.

the shape of a big blue dog and to this day, there is no other
