When Petco Foundation partner, Hawaiian Humane Society, needed help transforming nearly two dozen dogs, they knew just who to call: their local Petco groomers!

Petco teams – Beretania, Pearl City, Hawaii Kai, and Kaheohe—showed their COmmitment to their COmmunity, playing a huge role in helping the pups find their loving homes by giving them a much needed makeover.

Grooming Salon Manager Tara Diamond, from team Pearl City, was touched by the experience.

" the experience has truly touched their teams, who have proven what can happen when a community comes together to save lives."

“By the end of the grooming, the dogs transformed and were all very affectionate,” she said. “All of us felt extremely fortunate to have helped the dogs and are happy to hear that most have already found their forever homes!”

“They were sweet, well-tempered, and were thankful to get some TLC,” agreed Grooming Salon Manager Jordan Magness.

Tara says the dogs have been back in for touch ups and to help them get comfortable with grooming.

And as of last Saturday, the pups who were not already adopted by their foster families were finally ready to go to new loving homes at an adoption event at the Beretania Petco.

Tara and Jordan say the experience has truly touched their teams, who have proven what can happen when a community comes together to save lives.

“We all feel it’s our duty to help the animals,” says Tara. “It was very rewarding to help these pups, and we’re always happy to help the Humane Society.”

Jordan says helping dogs feel better is the reason why she got into the grooming business: “This is my passion. I want to help dogs look and feel their best! I feel fortunate that my passion is my career, and I’m able to do what I love and help animals.”
