According to Jeannie McLain, Operations Manager, the pet spa can accommodate all pets from Chihuahuas to Great Danes, and purebreds to mixed breeds.  The combined talent and experience offered by Danna Wood, master groomer and Nikki Perry provide a level of proficiency with unique spa packages and services while also working with sensitive and special needs pets.

“We hire outstanding talent in pet care, and develop new and exciting programs to assist pet owners in St. Johns County and beyond,” said McLain. “We are so pleased that Nikki has joined our team to further assist the local community and serve clients who request more and specialized services,” she said. “Our groomers help generate revenue for the organization’s charity services. The goal is to meet the nonprofit’s mission and keep pets healthy, happy, and in loving homes instead of surrendering them to a temporary shelter for housing, and prevent euthanasia.”
