Hope, a three-month-old puppy that suffers from a neurological disorder.

The tattoo you get at Liquid Chaos Tattoo Shop this Saturday could save a life.  That’s right a tattoo could save a dog’s life.

Finding unique ways to raise funds can lend itself to the formation of some unusual partnerships, such as in the case of the partnership between PAWS of Michigan and Liquid Chaos Tattoos to help raise funds for Hope, a three-month-old puppy that suffers from a neurological disorder.

Two years ago, a partnership was formed between PAWS of Michigan and Jarod “Bull” Ammons of Liquid Chaos. PAWS works to protect and care for homeless animals by placing them with loving foster families until compatible permanent homes can be found. The fundraiser also benefits C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc., an organization that works to provide life enhancing supplies and services to dogs that are chained or kept outside by their owners. Some of these services include safe fenced yards, vaccines, flea and tick control assistance, heartworm prevention and insulated dog houses.

In addition to donating 15% of the cost of each tattoo and piercing performed at Liquid Chaos October 7 – 13, 2013, employees’ at all three Liquid Chaos locations will be collecting donations of food, toys, and other pet products. “Many people love animals and want to show they care,” said Leanna Cachia of PAWS, “what better way than getting a tattoo that you can say you did for charity?”

The fundraiser will be held in Dearborn Heights, Canton and Brownstown. Hours of operation are 12:00 PM – 9:00 PM seven days a week, and also by appointment during morning hours. ”To participate all you have to do is show up and get a tattoo or a piercing at one of the locations”, said John Knee, the head piercer at the Dearborn Heights location.
