One vocational school is helping to make dogs and cats look their best while looking for new homes.
Rather than selling their unused grooming kits and supplies when their supplier changed, Animal Behavior College (ABC), which offers programs for certified dog training, pet grooming and veterinary assistants, chose to donate the items instead, according to their press release.
The items, which retail for more than $35,000, include clipper kits, blades, clipper spray, shear kits, head collars, grooming duffle bags and books.
The three Southern California facilities receiving the supplies are:
The Brittany Foundation Animal Sanctuary, a 501c (3) nonprofit, no-kill shelter in Acton, which is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for homeless dogs;
Best Friends Animal Society - Los Angeles, which offers pet adoption, a spay/neuter center and TNR programs;
and Advanced Care Animal Hospital of Santa Clarita.
Debbie Kendrick, vice president of ABC, said “These like-minded organizations share our desire to help animals and the people who love them. The grooming supplies and tool kits we donated will make a difference in the lives of the animals these companies help each and every day and is a small way for us to show our appreciation for their dedication.”
ABC is the largest vocational school of its kind in North America, offering animal-related career training in all 50 states and the western Canadian provinces. For more information, visit its website at http://www.animalbehaviorcollege.com or call 886-507-9874. They are also on Facebook.
