Rocket Fizz, a downtown candy and pop shop in Ann Arbor, is hosting the second annual Small Business Wagger-Day to support local cats and dogs. On Saturday, the shop will donate 10% of its sales to the Humane Society of Huron Valley (HSHV). Co-owner Tom Holmer expressed excitement about partnering with HSHV and the importance of giving back to the community on Small Business Saturday.
Located at 306 Main St., Rocket Fizz offers a variety of sweet treats including candy, taffy, novelties, and over 500 flavors of soda pop. The shop opened in Ann Arbor in 2021 and is committed to supporting the local community and animal welfare.
In addition to donating a portion of sales, Rocket Fizz will also be accepting cash donations for HSHV throughout the holiday season. The Humane Society of Huron Valley has been serving animals in need of homes for over 125 years, offering adoption services, low-cost veterinary care, behavioral training, an animal food bank, temporary pet housing, and wildlife rescue services.
Laura Crouch of HSHV expressed gratitude for businesses like Rocket Fizz that contribute to the organization’s life-saving programs and help achieve a record-breaking 96% save rate for animals. She highlighted the Small Business Wagger-Day as a fantastic opportunity for the local business, animals, and customers alike.
