Sheffield dog grooming salon, Pampered Pooch Grooming Parlour, has opened its doors to canine companions of Big Issue North vendors!

This is not Jane’s first social venture. Pampered Pooch is a member of Groomer Volunteer Network, a collective of animal enthusiasts and grooming professionals, who volunteer their services free of charge to rescue dogs to boost their chances of finding a home.

The free dog grooming offer also provides a temporary safe space where the owner can get out of the cold and have a cup of tea while they’re waiting for their four-legged friend.”
