Gone to the dogs

Polished Nail Salon has raised $750 for Canine Friends Cayman.

“Pedicures for Paws” was a January promotion the salon in Galleria Plaza hosted to raise money for care of the dogs.

Polished clients were given a 20 percent discount on pedicures when they donated $10 cash to Canine Friends Cayman.

“We can’t thank Cindy, her staff and clients enough for generously donating to the January Paws for Pedicure promotion which raised $750 for our program,” said Casey Keller of Canine Friends Cayman.

Cindy Oostvogels, owner of Polished Nail Salon, said she was happy to support such a worthy cause.

“I’m an animal lover as well, so it was easy for me to decide to assist Casey and rescues like Prudence,” said Ms. Oostvogels.

Canine Friends Cayman is a volunteer organization that raises funds for its spay and neuter program. It concentrates on rescuing puppies and dogs from the Department of Agriculture and also organizes the transfer of dogs to the United States to be adopted there.
