A Burton pet groomer is on the hunt for mucky pups to take part in a Guinness World Record attempt this weekend – all while raising money to help rehome pets across the UK.
Your pooch could be the talk of the town on Saturday, September 16, as Burton's Groom Room, along with 84 other salons across the country, is set to beat the current Guinness World Record of 5,000 dogs washed in a 12-hour period.
The salon, inside Pets at Home, at St Peter's Retail Park, Lichfield Street, is searching for hundreds of dog owners to book their pooches into the store for a £5 wash and dry, with all proceeds going to animal rescue charity, Support Adoption for Pets.
Jodie Lee, salon manager at Burton's Groom Room said: "We're really excited to take 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 fund-raising 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 would love for dog owners to help us scrub up and reach both of our goals."
The in-store Vets4Pets practice will also be fund-raising for Support Adoption for Pets on the day, in addition to offering free weight and microchip checks for pets.
