FURminator Grooms Shelter Dogs for Adoption

July 9, 2013 | By Cathy Heimberger | 1 comment

Some may believe that dogs and cats are in shelters because they behave badly or are sick. However, most pets that end up in shelters are there due to human problems such as landlord issues or lack of time or finances.

Animal shelters are full of many happy, healthy pets that have been vaccinated, spayed or neutered and evaluated for behavior to ensure that they’ll fit in with families.

FURminator knows that shelter animals that look better and feel better are much more likely to be adopted.

“We work closely with shelters to transform not-so-well-kept candidates for adoption into well-groomed, attractive pets,” says FURminator Director of Consumer Marketing Cathy Heimberger. “Proper grooming not only makes pets look great, but also helps them to be happier and healthier.”

If you are thinking about getting a pet companion, check out a shelter in your area. By adopting a dog or cat from a shelter, not only are you giving them a second chance, but you will also have a lifelong companion that will bring many years of love and devotion to your family.

There are pets of every size, shape and personality who are wagging their tails right now in hopes that you’ll select them to be part of your life!
