    Animated Wink Pet Grooming Shop Hosts Fundraiser for Hurricane Victims

    http://www.kvia.com/news/top-stories...tims/643171511

    LAS CRUCES, New Mexico - Dog groomer Rebecca Egan said she felt compelled to help out the thousands of victims affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma.

    A lot of the hurricane stuff hit me pretty close. I've got a lot of friends who have been doing stuff in Houston with the relief effort. My mom does search and rescue so you know it hits kind of close to home," Egan said.

    Egan wanted to incorporate her love for animals to help raise money. She approached her boss Kat Lacy, owner of Better Life Natural Pet Foods, about the possibility of hosting a charity dog wash.

    On Sunday, the shop opened its doors from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. with all proceeds going to the Red Cross.

    It is so awesome, I mean theyre I cant believe the early birds that showed up before 9 that were just like im getting a head start. Its awesome, its really great, Lacy said.

    Lacy said on a usual day, they groom about 15 pets. Sunday's goal was to groom over 200 pets.

    Were very pleased with these results. We had a lot of sweet dogs walk through these doors, Egan said. Its just super cool to see everyone coming together for such an effort to help with these disasters.
