DONATIONS IN 2014
Especially for Pets offers free nail clippings (based upon groomer availability). We don’t charge for this service, but in exchange we accept a monetary donation to a local animal shelter or non-profit organization. We ask that you call in advance to ensure groomer availability.
Four different charities per year are chosen to be the recipient of the nail clipping donations. 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.

Current Recipient of Nail Clipping Donations
Underdog ResQ is a 501c3 equal opportunity dog rescue that saves good dogs from bad situations regardless of breed and age. In 2014 the organization is celebrating 10 years of service to dogs who have lost their owners for one reason or another. Dogs are placed in foster homes with volunteers who care for each dog as their own. Initially operated by only four volunteers, Underdog ResQ has grown to over 100 strong throughout New England, New York and South Carolina to save over 300 dogs.
As an equal opportunity dog rescue, they strive to save adoptable and social dogs of any size, breed and age. Their priority is to help dogs in high kill shelters, as well as animal control agencies and animal hospitals without adoption programs. They also provide assistance to humane societies that have limited resources or just have a tough time placing certain dogs; including dogs that become extremely depressed in a shelter atmosphere. Each dog gets proper veterinary care, training and temporary family to keep him safe. Underdog ResQ relies on the kindness of others-donations from individuals like you and companies like Especially for Pets.
