Woman helps Gibson City community by offering dog grooming


GIBSON CITY, Ill. (WCIA) — A woman wanted to help the Gibson City community, but she did not have the money to do so. However, she did know of one way she could help.

Owner and groomer for Barking Beauties Spaw, Gabrielle Pollard wanted to make sure people did not have to choose between renovating their house or neglecting their dog. So, she’s offering free dog and cat grooming for anyone impacted by the flood.

“If they have to buy a new floor, they’re not going to have money to buy a dog groom, and dog grooming is really important as far as the dog’s health. I just want to make sure that people don’t have to make a choice between neglecting their dog and fixing up their house,” she said.

You do still have to make an appointment to get your pet groomed. You can find more information on the Facebook page.
