Madra Mór’s founder and president Jacqueline Hynes has been recognized by The Military Working Dog Team Support Association (MWDTSA) for the company’s donations.

Madra Mór Canine Spa Treatments have been a regular addition to the care packages sent to U.S. Military Working Dog teams deployed in combat areas overseas. MWDTSA packs and mails the boxes and supports both active duty and retired military K9s.  The packages are the centerpiece of its support of “both ends of the leash.”

Madra Mór has donated nurturing mud treatments for the group’s care packages for the past two years. Madra Mór, based in Palm Beach Gardens, offers a line of nourishing and hydrating mud treatments that help prevent dogs from itching and scratching, all while promoting bonding time in the grooming process.

In recognition of this vital and generous support, the MWDTSA recently presented Hynes, a certificate of appreciation and a numbered Challenge Coin. Only 37 challenge coins have been presented over the nine years since the nonprofit’s founding, said Col. Dick Baumer, USA (Ret.), 1st vice president of the MWDTSA.

“Military Working Dogs protecting our freedoms absolutely deserve a pampering, spa experience,” says Hynes. “Due to the hostile geographic locations they often work in, we are pleased to be able to offer this support. Madra Mór muds help keep their first line of defense, their skin, nourished at bath-time.”

Baumer made the presentation to Hynes at Lap of Luxury Dog Spa in Delray Beach, Fla. The spa’s managing partner is Jonathan David, star of Animal Planet’s “Dogs 101” and “Groomer Has It”, and he is ranked among the top five groomers in the USA.

“We are grateful for Jacqueline’s generosity to these American K9s who are deployed around the world to protect other soldiers,” said Baumer. “Too many people forget that we have substantial forces still overseas who need the unique ‘force protection’ skills of Military Working Dog teams.”
