Katie and Mitch Horowitz of Furballs Pet Grooming bring a vanload of goodies for the animals.
When a cargo van stopped in front of Popcorn Park to unload their goodies, we weren’t sure what to expect! Mitch and Katie Horowitz, owners of Furballs Pet Grooming at 340 Route 9 South in Berkeley Township came by to deliver lots of donations – and it wasn’t their first trip to bring cheer to Society orphans. The donations of dogs and cat food, kitten formula, leashes, collars, shampoo, dog and cat beds, kitty litter, litter boxes, fresh fruits and vegetables, rabbit and guinea pig food, cleaning supplies – the list goes on and on! They will also donate 50% of the proceeds of anyone who brings in their pet for a tooth brushing.
Their grooming shop welcomes special needs dogs such as blind dogs, geriatric dogs, one-eyed dogs, amputee dogs and their love of animals makes the experience a pleasant experience. Filling the air are the sounds of canaries to provide a relaxed atmosphere for their clients. Mitch and Katie hope to make the fund raiser a bi-annual event. Furballs Pet Grooming has also presented several gift certificates for $10.00 discounts on a full grooming for any animal adopted from the Society. The grooming salon also sells several brands of natural pet foods. Katie knits collars, leashes and doggy sweaters to sell.
An unusual nicety is that new customers receive a thank you card from Furballs with a photograph of your pet on it. They also do pet photography at that location. Sounds like one-stop shopping for that favorite 4-legged friend who shares your life.
