To the staff:
I have been meaning to write this note for some time now. I would like to let you all know how lucky I feel to be able to do business with you all.
I have been bringing my dog ‘Al’ to you for several years now. She has always been beautifully groomed and I have found no other groomer to surpass your job. Besides the beautiful work, the staff and groomers have been very friendly and genuinely caring for my special pet.

It’s not the kind of behavior that will get you a date at a singles bar, but when Matt circles the group of beauties gathered at this Sudbury social scene, and gives each one a friendly sniff, he receives the canine equivalent of a high five.
The Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) was formed in February 2000 by animal welfare professionals and volunteers who are dedicated to the welfare of animals. They wanted to make a difference by collectively helping those animals that needed them the most. MAC members have initiated task forces on a number of fronts including: reshaping the image of shelters in Massachusetts, helping to improve communication among groups working to place animals, compiling a list of animal services in Massachusetts, and promoting animal-friendly legislation. In addition, the Coalition decided one of the key ways to accomplish their mission was to start a spay/neuter program for shelters and rescue organizations.
