Denver Shelter Dogs Get Much Deserved Fancy Makeovers

“Every dog has its day”, so they say.  We recently had the amazing opportunity to be a a part of a very, very, special day for a group of oh-so-deserving and adorable shelter dogs at MaxFund here in Denver, Colorado! 🐶

In celebration of launching their new grooming services in Denver, and National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, Rover.com had the most wonderful idea to pamper a group of sweet rescue pups at a local shelter with full-service makeovers. 🎉 How incredible is that??!!  And we were lucky enough to be a part of it to capture some fun before-and-after glamour shots.

Rover, an online destination for pet care services, is launching their in-home grooming services here in Denver!  Woohoo!!  Now, all the pup-obsessed Denver pawrents can contact Rover.com to book a pet groomer that comes right to their home. I’d say that’s pretty incredible news.  Instead of facing the grueling process of taking their stressed furkids to the groomer, Rover groomers will come to your home, set up their pop-up salon and clean up before they leave, all in the safety and comfort of the pets’ home.

MaxFund, a true no-kill animal shelter in Denver, is an incredible organization with wonderful volunteers who were so happy to see their most scruffy puppers get this fun day of pampering.  “Seeing a few of our adoptable dogs completely transformed by the Rover groomers today was incredibly heartwarming and I can’t wait to see who brings them home,” Alexa Beale, volunteer coordinator with MaxFund.

For us, it was the same heartwarming and overwhelming feeling of joy and gratitude.  Capturing the amazing transformations was not just witnessing the physical transformations, but seeing how much more confident and happy the pups were after they had their spa day.  It was truly eye-opening to see the total transformation right before our eyes, and we will be furever grateful to have been a part of their big day.

October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and many animal shelters are running specials. If you aren’t ready to take home a new dog just yet, consider volunteering or making a donation to help.  And of course, we don’t need a special month to help these shelters… they desperately need all the support they can get, year-round!

This wonderful story has already been shared by many social media and news outlets, like People.com  + we are beyond grateful that the MaxFund pups are getting this much deserved attention!  We hope they find their pawsome furever homes soon.

Thank you so much to Rover.com and MaxFund Animal Wellness Center for having us be a part of this incredible experience! 🐾💗 Check out our favorite photos of the supaw pupstars, Skittles, Matthew, Winter, Penny, Zoe + Doug (in that order), from the event below.  Enjoy!!  And please reach out to MaxFund to adopt, donate or volunteer!  To schedule your furbaby’s in-home grooming with Rover, click here.
