In honor of National Mutt Day on July 31st, here are the top 5 ways to celebrate your mutt!
#1. Pamper your pet
Zebra stripes anyone? Watch out for the newest trend. Dog owners are getting serious about hair care. A day at the spa might be just what your dog needs and deserves. You can even DIY with a little trim or distinctive pop of dog-friendly color at home.
#2. Find out your doggy’s DNA
Have you ever wondered what mix your mutt might be? Order a DNA test to find out. Nowadays there are plenty of options you can find on the web. The results won’t change your devotion to your furry friend, but it could give you some remarkable insight. Adding another piece of your pup’s puzzle might even make you more thankful for her uniqueness. Poodle-Mastiff? Pit bull-Chihuahua? Best friends come in so many great combinations!
#3. Throw a party
Party at the park or have a low-key celebration on the lawn. Make it an event to celebrate your marvelous mutt! Invite a couple four-legged friends along as a play date. Bonus if your pooch’s buddies bring treats. Frisbees and party hats all around!
#4. Take on a new adventure
If you want to try out a new sport, go for one you can do with your dog. There are a variety of options including paddle boarding, boating, hiking, swimming, and more. Your mutt may even surprise you with their athletic ability. It’s also a great way to keep active in these beautiful summer months.
#5. Serious snuggle time
There is no better way to show the love you have for your fluffer than a dedicated snuggle-fest. All you need is your mutt, maybe a cozy blanket, and plenty of “who’s the best doggy in the world.” Plus, spending time together strengthens the bond between you and your dog.
Have fun with your mutt! Pixie Project will be celebrating all of their beautiful mixes too for National Mutt Day! Check out all of their adoptable dogs waiting for forever homes at https://www.pixieproject.org/category/dogs/.

We’re so grateful to Jeff and Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville for helping us make connections with new shelter partners and for funding the transfer of animals in need to Pixie!

As the owner of Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville in Oregon, and Epic Ford in Everett, WA,  Jeff Swickard has put giving back at the forefront of his businesses.

In 2016, Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville donated over $116,000 to nonprofits, with giving in 2015 and 2014 totaling $140,000 and $90,000, respectively.

While his businesses regularly support a variety of causes, including arts, local veterans, children’s cancer, and other charitable organizations, Jeff’s personal passion is in supporting animal welfare organizations, including the Pixie Project.

In fact, for each car sold, Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville donates $100 to either the Pixie Project or Oregon Dog Rescue. In December 2016, that meant a $14,000 donation to the Pixie Project to help find homes for animals!

Jeff was inspired to get involved with animal welfare in 2005, after welcoming a rescue dog into his family. That experience compelled him to help other animals like her.

He is passionate about supporting organizations that help animals most in need, including those at high-risk of euthanasia and animals impacted by medical needs, breed discrimination, behavioral problems, and other disadvantages.

‘œI’m drawn to the Pixie Project,’ he says, ‘because of their commitment to helping animals that might not otherwise be adopted, like those from overcrowded rural shelters, as well as the vital veterinary care services they provide to low-income pet owners.’

As a donor, Jeff is motivated by the the millions of animals still in our shelters. ‘œWe are committed to championing the organizations that are dedicated to saving animals’ lives and helping them find permanent homes,’ he says.
