Ahh, I see. On second look, I guess the Poodle is sitting on a grooming table huh? Doh. Well, I was hoping he/she had owners coming, anyway. Still, great of those groomers to volunteertheir time and skill. I wonder how it's affected adoption rates?

It would be nice if the owner got the dog back as long as the owner isn't an ignoramus.

I believe the adoption rate for this dog is $150, but most at that smaller rescue are around that amount.

As for the groomers, I know my friend doesn't charge anything for it. She just enjoys helping get the dogs all cleaned up and spiffy to help them get adopted.

Oh, what I meant by "adoption rate" was more how many dogs are being adopted now who would have normally been passed right on by because they're dirty and scruffy, than their cost. I'm not even a Poodle person and I'd have at least stopped to look at him, so...

Oh, LOL. WHOOSH! That went right over my head.

It helps a lot. Like you, I wouldn't give a poodle a second glance, but that guy indeed caught my eye. I know my friend tries her best to do all the fancy show cuts and whatnot, but sometimes there's no choice but for her to shave a dog due to all the mats and neglect.

She also puts bows at the base of the ears on pit bulls. It's, ummm, quite a sight.

Are there shelters that DON'T groom their dogs?

Must be a Canadian thing. The shelter here doesn't groom the dogs, to be honest I'm happy to no longer walk the kennels and see dogs who'd been sitting there for days with gaping skull wounds full of flies (the previous shelter before this one).

The county run shelters in FL definitely, definitely did not.

The shelters here don't groom unless there is an issue like a ton of mats.
