Throughout the month of August, pet owners can help the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County by having their rugs cleaned.

Rite-Way Cleaning of Waldoboro will donate 10 percent of proceeds from each pet stain or pet urine-related rug cleaning order and 5 percent of proceeds from any pet owner’s rug cleaning order to PMHSKC.

“I am happy to repeat this program again for 2013 because the Pope Memorial Humane Society does so much to save lives and build families in our community. Pets are an important source of business for us, and our donation of proceeds is our way of giving back to the animals,” said Rite Way owner Mike Fairfield in a news release.

To schedule a rug cleaning, call Mike Fairfield at 542-4231. Pet owners need only mention the words Humane Society, and Rite Way will make the donation.

Rite Way Cleaning is located at 36 Chapel Road in Waldoboro. Hours are Mondays to Fridays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more details, call 785-3484, visit, or contact them by email at
