Barbara Needham, owner the Pampered Pooch in Gray since April of 2006, has always valued animals. “Animals have always been very special to me,” she says. “I always envisioned working with animals.”
Needham was hesitant to work for a veterinary hospital or animal shelter because she doesn’t like to see them in pain or suffering. Instead she was prompted to start her own grooming and pet care business.
“I started grooming my own dogs about 11 years ago but never had a good location or the right timing to start a business,” explains Needham. “When this location became available, it was the right place and the right time.” She says she can’t think of a better way to spend her day than working with animals that are fun and loving.
