I approached the state and submitted a letter requesting the ability to continue my work.
I included facts from the American Lung Association as well as other credited sources showing why pet grooming is essential along with letters from clients, a physician and the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
With the information I have provided, I received a yes from the governor’s office to reopen.
I have canceled my regular appointments for Saturday, April 4 in order to help more people with their immediate needs of getting pets’ nails trimmed and filed.
We will be hosting a drive-thru nail trimming clinic 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 4 at our location 208 DP Road, Suite B. We are asking that everyone remain in their vehicles and my staff and I will get each pet from their owners outside, we will be wearing personal protective equipment of disposable gloves and washable face masks. We will return the pets to their owners in the same fashion.
We will be charging $10 per pet (regularly $15). We ask that anyone not feeling well not attend the event so that we may continue to provide services to the community. This event does not require an appointment.
I will be reopening grooming services Monday by appointment. We will be meeting pet owners at their vehicles and wearing our PPE. Our hours will be temporarily changed to Monday through Saturday by appointment to allow for making up missed appointments during the COVID-19 shut down.
