Especially for Pets offers nail grooming, by appointment, in exchange for monetary donations to a local animal shelter or non-profit organization. Four different charities per year are chosen to be the recipient of these donations. We gratefully accept a $10 donation for a clip or $15 for a trim using a Dremel tool.

Since the Program’s inception, Especially for Pets has raised $306,068 for charity. Click here for past recipients.

Please note: Please call ahead for groomer availability. A current Rabies certificate must be presented for all cats and dogs. Friendly and non-aggressive animals only. Animals that need strong restraint or muzzling cannot be accommodated.

Current Nail Clipping Charity

Milton Animal LeagueThe Milton Animal League is a volunteer group dedicated to the rescue, care and adoption of animals in need at the Milton Animal Shelter. Every animal that needs shelter, whether it be a dog, cat, rabbit, goat, hen, or turtle, receives the best care possible and their needs for housing, food and emotional support are met to the best of the Leagues’ ability. Every animal is fully vetted, receives a physical exam, age appropriate vaccines, blood tests and spay/neuter. All adoptable animals are safe until they find their permanent homes with a new family. The Milton Animal Shelter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization and they rely solely on adoption and membership fees and donations from generous caring individuals and businesses.

Their current shelter is 30 years old and the structure is old and in need of repair. The League is looking to finalize a new location and build a new, more modern shelter that will allow them to save, care and meet the needs of more animals. They have taken on the important and sometimes daunting task of securing the funds to build a new animal shelter in the town of Milton and are asking for your help in the form of donations. Please share this story as the fundraising for the new shelter has become a priority mission. 

Please take advantage of this service and help a local charity at the same time! We also encourage you to learn more about the recipient at their in-store Information Days listed below.
