Saturday Pet Day!!!

We still have a few appointments availble at various times during the day, we would love to add your dog or cat to our list.

Drum Roll Please!!!!!!!!

We know that our business hours don't always fit work and school schedules, but we have to groom when we have students.

The good news is that we have persuaded them to come groom for our Community Pet Care Donation Day on Saturday, February 12th from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm.

Yes this Saturday you can get your dog groomed at Cafe Pet Spa!

Another twist is that this event will support the charity of the Michigan FFA and all proceeds will be presented to The Ronald McDonald House (this event only). We would love to add your donations to our totals.

Some of the same procedures apply. 2 dogs per household, only wash, dry, nail trims, ear cleaning and teeth brushing (no Clipping), and reservations are required.

Call 269-512-7820 to reserve your spot!!! Come and keep the students busy, they would love to meet your dog!
