Rover's Makeovers! Rover Oaks Pet Resort, Taking Homeless Pups from Bow to Wow!
Posted Aug 02 2012 9:30am
The pup-tastic grooming staff at Rover Oaks Pet Resort in Katy are helping animals from Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) go from bow to wow by providing weekly doggie makeovers for lucky CAP dogs each Wednesday. The pups also receive a free grooming certificate from Rover Oaks Katy so their new adoptive parents can continue to keep them looking their best!
This week our makeover team went to work on two horribly matted little pups...shih tzu mix Charlie who has an adopter waiting for him, and Little Girl a spaniel girl who will need to undergo heartworm treatment before she is available for adoption in three or four months.
Meet Charlie BEFORE His Rover's Makeover!
The grooming process was very uncomfortable for Charlie, but he is a good and sweet little boy who will do fine with just a little practice. Since the grooming staff was able to de-mat instead of shaving his tail, they gave it a little blue highlight (all natural dyes, harmless for dogs, which will quickly wash out).
Check Out Charlie NOW!
Meet Little Girl BEFORE Her Rover's Makeover!
The little girl was an absolute angel even though she, too, was horribly matted...and underneath one of the mats on her neck was a deep wound.
Check Out Little Girl NOW!
Even though these two babies are not available for adoption, many other wonderful dogs, cats and small animals ARE waiting patiently for wonderful homes at Citizens for Animal Protection shelter, 17555 Katy Freeway (near the intersection of I-10 and Barker-Cypress). This weekend, August 4 - 5, CAP is featuring 50% off adoption fees for all dogs and cats...a " Certified, Pre-Owned " event sponsored by West Houston Subaru . So, hurry over to CAP...your new best friend is waiting to meet you!
