The Rancho Sahuarita Marketplace is proud to announce the arrival of its newest tenant: Wags and Whiskers Pet Salon!
Wags and Whiskers is a full-service pet grooming salon, coming to the community in early December of this year. The salon is an all-natural salon; “passionate about animals” and “passionate about our environment.” They use all natural products, which have been “tested on humans” and are safe for animals. They also pride themselves on specializing with senior, aggressive or anxious pets, (though they will happily assist with all dogs, cats and rabbits). This philosophy that promotes a fun and less-stressful experience for your furry friend includes the use of natural products, aromatherapy, diffusers and more.
The team has 22 years of experience combined. Part owner Rose spoke of what got her into the business saying: “I have been grooming for 5 years and was taught by Suzan, another owner. We have been working on opening a pet salon ever since I realized the amount of love I had for this industry. Every single day is different, and I love being able to interact with not only the pets but also with the Pet Parents.”
She also spoke of her grooming business partner saying, “Suzan has been grooming 17 years and teaching for over 7 years, and has always had an interest in the animal industry. She found her passion after deciding to go to a grooming school moving her from her small hometown of Duncan, AZ to the big city of Tucson, AZ. She hasn’t stopped since and has no plans on slowing down, dedicating all of her success, passion, and knowledge to her late father, Wilmer John Stephens Jr.”
The business plans to open with a soft opening later this month. Then, the Grand Opening for Wags and Whiskers is planned for Saturday, December 9th at 11:00 a.m. A full list of services can be found at their website, at petgroomingaz.com, (currently pre-booking appointments at the site). The team also invites local residents to visit their Facebook and Instagram pages, where they can find ways to book appointments, join the mailing list, learn more about the team, and see the full list of services and grooming options they offer.
