Sometimes people think that they can only get a pet from a breeder or a pet shop in a mall. Yet animal shelters are filled to capacity with dogs and cats who must find homes, or they will be killed (euthanized). So rather than buying a pet for sale from a breeder, we encourage people to adopt it at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group. We always have adoptable pets in our grooming salon, young and older one’s, and we’re always happy to give you guidence and good advice on how to choose the right pet for your personal situation!
Not guilty, your Honor!
What are some of the benefits of adopting a pet vs. buying it at the mall? Some pets rescued pets may come from a negligent or even abusive owner, but most are usually abandoned, because their owner cannot care for them anymore due to medical or age reasons. These pets are usually already housetrained and checked by a Vet. Our rescued pets will also have the necessary shots. We’ll be happy to help you with advice and direction for anything related to your new baby. All together a value of up to $500. That means less stress and more savings for you! So what are you waiting for? Go and ‘save’ an adorable, perfect pet! Be prepared for lots of love and kisses! Caveat: Think about how a new pet, dog or cat, is going to change your life. It will take up your time and energy with feeding, grooming, exercise, and play. Especially dogs are social animals and need quality time with their owners - you! So, it is important that you and your pet are a good match. We’ll gladly advise you! There are other criteria to mind when choosing a pet. Do you have little children, or are you an elderly person? Do you live in a condo, apparment or a house with 3 acres of land around it? Cost related: Some pets require more grooming or are more prone to illnesses than others. These are all basic questions you need to ask yourself, before adopting a pet. Talk to a pet professional like Christina Crawfis, who has rescued and adopted many dogs and other animals during her 50 year career as animal behaviorist, pet hospical administrator and master groomer.

Millions of dogs and cats are destroyed (killed) annually in shelters across the country, not because they’re ill, but because there are no homes for them. Please consider adopting from a shelter and thus saving a life!
There is an increasing trend to adopt a pet, rather than buy it from a shop in the mall, or from a breeder, of which some a pure “Puppy Mills”, run by people with little knowledge of health related issues and with only $$$$$ on their minds.
