NAIL CLIPPING QUARTERLY FUNDRAISER
Especially for Pets offers free nail clippings on a walk-in basis. Please call ahead for 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.
