Englewood, Fla. -- Pamper your pet and help other furry friends Saturday, September 29th at the Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary.

Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary (EARS) will host their Pampered Pets event. This offers local residents cost-effective pet care services from grooming to micro-chipping. The event will take place at the EARS Store and Adoption Center at 145 W. Dearborn Street, Englewood, from 10am to 4pm.

Because of its success EARS has decided to offer this service to the community on the last Saturday of every month. All proceeds from this monthly event will go directly towards caring for the animals that are rescued by EARS.

The public is offered microchipping, pet bathing, nail clipping and professional grooming at reduced prices for each service. An overall pet evaluation will be offered for free and customers can then choose which services they want. Only the professional grooming requires an appointment. These appointments may be made by calling 941-681-3877 or by stopping in at the store. Customers can also purchase a cold drink and shop the on-site thrift store while their pets are being pampered.
