Puppy and Kitten Grooming

If you are the proud owner of an adorable puppy or kitten, it is best to get your new pet acquainted with being groomed at an early age. This will familiarize your little furry friend with proper grooming manners and will create a more comfortable, relaxed pet on the groomer’s table for years to come.

Paw Wash

For those of you “do-it-yourselfers” who are tired of clogging your drains and cleaning up the mess at your house every time you give your pet a bath, we offer a self-serve pet grooming station complete with a stainless steel bathtub, shampoo, conditioner, towels, brushes, combs, and fur dryers. We also offer upgrades to shampoos, nail trimming, and anal gland expression, as well as rental of grooming tools such as the Furminator and clippers.

Be sure to look for special events at the Paw Wash during November through April as we help give back to local rescue groups that save the lives of countless dogs and cats. During these fundraisers, the rescue group does all the mess work for you while you relax. A portion of the proceeds is donated to the organization working the event so they can save even more lives.
