I love animals. I wish that more people could share the joy that is an unconditionally loving animal companion. I think this man knows just how far a nice haircut goes.
A New York City man is traveling to nearby animal shelters to primp pups that are need of forever homes — for free!
Mark Imhof, 45, who started his grooming business in October, estimates he’s given on-the-house haircuts to about 50 dogs — many of whom have found adoptive families.
“These are dogs,” Imhof told ABC News today. “They want to love someone and I think when they have a crusty shell on them and things like that, it makes them unable to do so. When I can clean them up, you can see [their] eyes and it makes them easier to connect. It’s trying to bring these dogs to comfort, so they can become more adoptable and that’s the goal.”
A little soap, water and a nice cut make a huge difference. I know. I work with all sorts of rescues. If it were not for people just like this man, many would never look their way which would mean an opportunity of a lifetime missed.
