Nothing feels better than a long, refreshing soak in the tub and an updated 'do. Especially when you really need it! For the dogs at PAWS, getting pampered is an extra special treat. Each dog receives thorough grooming and a brand new look when they arrive at PAWS, and it's all thanks to one very special volunteer.

Deborah grooming PAWS dog GenieMeet Deborah Jeanneret of One Dog At A Time pet grooming service. Rain or shine, Deborah makes the trip to PAWS every Monday to give the dogs fresh haircuts, a sudsy scrub and a head-to-toe makeover.

But it's not just about vanity—it's important for the dogs to put their best paw forward for potential adopters.

"The grooming service really does help our dogs get adopted faster," confirms PAWS Animal Behavior Lead Kristi Binau.

"When adopters see a ‘dirty' or matted dog, they may be less inclined to adopt that particular dog because of their appearance, and the added cost of paying for grooming once they bring the dog home" says Binau.

With every adoption and every dog finding a forever home, Deborah's hard work has paid off.

Thank you Deborah for your compassion and dedicated to the animals at PAWS!
