This Groomer Gives Free Haircuts To Help Shelter Dogs Get Adopted

Mark "The Dog Guy" works as an animal groomer in New York City, but his job entails more than just making pets look good on the outside. For the dogs that need his services most, a bath and a haircut can do wonders for their mood and potentially change their lives. That's why when Imhof isn't primping pets for his business, he's offering his services for free to shelter dogs who are looking to get adopted. 

The idea to start grooming rescue dogs struck him when he adopted his first pit bull Cleo with his fiancée. "She was so utterly defeated when we brought her home," he told Mental Floss. "A simple shower just lifted her spirits and we thought, wouldn't it be great if someone could go groom shelter animals? And it became me."

Since then and during the two last two years, he has done pro bono work for dozens of adoptable pups in the New York City area, many of whom have gone home to loving families. Here are some of the before and after images from his Instagram below.

Amazing Comic Shows The Importance of Giving Adult Cats a Chance

Kittens. When they are up for adoption they are usually the first ones to go. So many want a kitten or a puppy. What what about the other "adult" animals at the shelter? And when we say adult we mean from ages 1-onward. Sometimes they get looked over. We know, we are choking on our tears too! But, this comic allows people to consider the adoption of an adult pet. You just have to read it! 

The artist Brittney created this comic script because it is a cause that is so dear to her heart, and will be to yours too. "All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a "different" pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart."

A Woman Converted Her Garage to Make a Cat Rescue Shelter Organization

We are so used to hearing about rescue animal shelters and their facilities. But here's one we don't think you've ever heard of. A cat and kitten rescue shelter organization... out of someone's garage! And it's all thanks to Marilyn Harely from Maine who decided to do something… a bit unconventional.

Harley recently gave an open house tour of the newly remodeled Another Chance Rescue facility right out of her garage! The facility is located in Sanford, Maine and lets' just say, many were enthusiastic about the upgraded cat rescue center that once used to be a garage. A place where she once used to park her car,  Harely decided that cats and kittens were in need of warmth and shelter. Now, you might think that she finds kittens and cats homeless on the streets and takes them in, but actually Another Chance Rescue takes in surrendered cats and those from kills shelters in other states. The cats receive veterinary care and then are put up for adoption. Some get adopted quickly while others stay for a little while longer. But one thing is for certain, this is a no-kill facility!

These Two Women Are Saving Dogs Using Applied... Economics!?

At an early age of 17 years old, Christine L. Exley saved the life of her"wiggly-butt Pit Bull", Pepper. How? Well...while volunteering at a local shelter, she learned that if no one would adopt Pepper soon, she will have to be put down. So Christine did the only thing she could think of, since she was only 17 and couldn't legally adopt Pepper...
