We generously support the organizations in Central Virginia who work tirelessly to better and save our community’s animals in need.

Here are a few ways we help:

  • Every week we groom three special pets from the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. We also provide grooming for foster dogs from Green Dogs Unleashed and dogs from the HOWS Project.
  • We offer a special grooming discount for certified therapy pets within 24 hours of their therapy visits.
  • We proudly provide complimentary boarding for our rescue partners Caring for Creatures, Green Dogs Unleashed, and the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA as needed to help save lives.
  • We have hosted pet food drives for the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA and Fluvanna SPCA.
  • We sponsor fundraisers that support our four-legged friends, like the CASPCA’s annual Bow-WOW-Walk.
  • We offer a free dog bite prevention workshop to area schools.
