This week my Friday afternoon consisted of a bit of a change from the regular route of clients dogs. I’d been contacted by a dog rescue organisation called the Doodle Trust Rescue through a facebook group I am a part of that connects rescue facilities to groomers that are willing to give up the odd bit of time to offer free grooms to dogs that come in in horrible states to help them feel better and better their chances of being re-homed sooner.
In Wallington I met Miss Martha, who’s family were sadly no longer able to take care of her so surrendered her into care. She was very shy and nervous, I spent 15 mins coaxing her to me on the kitchen floor while she hid under the table before she would come and say hello.
But once she was in the van she took it all in her stride and was a total super star! Hopefully I’ll hear how she’s getting on and she will find a forever home very soon!
If you run a dog rescue organisation and have a dog that is in need of a professional dog groomer to help its chance of getting re-homed, get in touch via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are local to Surrey (UK) or see the groomers volunteer network facebook page for a nationwide registry of dog groomers who would be happy to help!
