Our Story:  Pet Pals Grooming Center

"It all started back in 1983 when my Dad decided to leave corporate america to follow is dream"

Since day 1, our goal at Pet Pals Grooming Center has been to provide the community with a service for the family pet where they can be pampered by providing grooming services in a gentle, loving and professional manner.

Pet Pals Grooming Center is owned by me--Cathie Harty. Pet Pals Grooming Center is the dream come true vision of my dad Bill Patten who established our grooming shop in November 1983. He inherited a love of animals and a natural gift of their trusting him from his mom who loved and cared for animals all of her life.  A poodle breeder in the sixties (and a bit of a rebel) she was asked to leave her poodle club when she would not destroy her party color puppies--what foresight, now they are in high demand!

Pet Pals started when after a long career in the corporate world my dad decided to run with his dream. He graduated from Pedigree School of Dog Grooming and opened Pet Pals Grooming Center upon his graduation.  I joined the operation in 1986 and apprenticed with him.

Almost 30 years later Pet Pals is one of the longest operating family owned pet salons in all of the United States!  With close to 100,000 groomings under our belt, Pet Pals is the number one grooming store in the MetroWest.
