Especially for Pets offers pet nail grooming in exchange for a monetary donation to a local animal shelter or non-profit organization. Four different charities per year are chosen to be the recipient of the nail clipping donations. We kindly ask for a suggested donation of $10 for a clip or $15 for a trim using a Dremel tool. Friendly and non-aggressive animals only; please call ahead for groomer availability.
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.
Since the Program’s inception, Especially for Pets has raised $211,293 for charity. Click here for past recipients.
Current Nail Clipping Charity
An advocate for animal welfare, MetroWest Humane Society (MWHS) focuses on the well-being of cats in the Metrowest Boston area by finding loving homes or providing lifelong care while educating the community and reducing the feral/stray cat population. Dependent on charitable donations, MWHS is a volunteer-led, non-profit, no-kill shelter located in Ashland.
In addition to being an adoption center, they are also a sanctuary that provides permanent homes for senior cats with medical issues and many community feral cats. The majority of the space at the shelter is occupied by these permanent residents. Funds raised during this quarter will go towards an expansion of their adoptable cat room so they can house an additional ten to 15 cats, including those surrendered by families who can no longer keep their pet due to unfortunate circumstances. Their ultimate goal is to find loving families and forever homes for each and every one of them
