Pawsh and Jepson Jags

Although we are Jaguars, we love dogs too, and pets of all types.  That is why, we are excited to share that our Jepson PTC is partnering with PAWSH Animal Clinic and Boutique for an exciting fundraiser!

 

For every new PAWSH client who brings in the attached flier, PAWSH is offering a super affordable vet exam at the cost of $20. Jepson then gets back 25% of each exam, and 10% from any purchase in the boutique. Just bring this flier in, your pet, and support education!  It's that easy.  Pawsh flier.pdf
