Pet Grooming

Does your Poodle, Yorkshire Terrier, Cocker Spaniel, Bichon Frise, Shih Tzu or other "high maintenance" dog need a haircut? Or perhaps your Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, Husky, German Shepherd, Boxer, Bulldog or "Heinz 57" needs a good wash and nail trim? Or does your cat need a bath or shave?

Whatever breed of dog (or cat!) you have, trust the grooming experts at our Pet Resorts to pamper your pet. Our Pet Resort groomers have over 30 years experience combined!

Keeping in mind your pet's safety and comfort, our facilities are equipped with hydraulic grooming tables and top-of-the-line step tubs, which are especially beneficial to our elderly clients.

All grooming includes bathing, brushing, ear-cleaning and nail trimming. Additional pampering services are available.

Up-to-date vaccinations are required for all clients prior to your pet's appointment. Please visit our Boarding FAQ to learn more about our vaccination requirements.


NOTE: All dogs receiving ANY services at our Fern Creek Pet Resort and Eastpoint Pet Resort must have two Canine Influenza vaccines (a booster is needed 2-4 weeks after the first vaccine).

Meet Our Groomers

Allison - Fern Creek Pet Resort

Allison started working with animals as a volunteer at an animal shelter, where she helped with adoptions and was a foster parent for many dogs. After graduating with a degree in nursing, she decided she wanted a career working with animals. Allison's first position with pets was as a dog trainer. After a while, her manager asked her if she had ever considered becoming a pet stylist. Allison says she had never considered it: "Although I had always admired the stylists, whenever I saw them working in the salon, they always seemed like a type of magician. Dogs appeared well behaved, and left looking beautiful," she says.

Allison worked as a dog bather for almost a year before she enrolled in a grooming academy, where she was taught specific breed trims and the importance of safety and handling techniques. Her continuing education involved the completion of a portfolio of more than 100 grooms with specific trims, which were evaluated by grooming experts. Allison graduated and eventually became a salon manager before becoming an academy instructor. After 10 years as a professional stylist, Allison started grooming pets at the Kentucky Humane Society's Fern Creek Pet Resort, where she has been for more than a year.

Allison says she enjoys working with all types of dogs, but especially likes grooming senior dogs. "Working with the senior pets has taught me to work at their pace, and that there's always time for a quick nap!" she says.

Here is a great "before" and "after" shot of one of her clients:

Virginia Huffman - Eastpoint Pet Resort

Virginia grew up in Oldham County and lives there with her husband of 20 years and their two daughters. The family includes two retired racehorses, three dogs and three cats. Before Virginia started professionally grooming dogs and cats, she groomed horses. She has a B.A. in History from the University of Louisville.

Virginia has been a groomer for the KHS Eastpoint Pet Resort for eight years. She regularly attends grooming seminars and trade shows to further her education. Virginia particularly enjoys doing "rescue grooming" - or grooming shelter pets. "It is very rewarding to transform rescues and help make them feel better and become more adoptable," she says.

Virginia grooms all breeds but has a special passion for herding dogs. In the past, she fostered many Collies for Tri-State Collie Rescue. She is also involved with Oldham County Dog 4-H, where her daughter shows the family's two Yorkies, who were both adopted from KHS. Her other dog is a Border Collie, also a KHS rescue.

Heather Delovich - Eastpoint Pet Resort

Heather enjoys grooming all breeds. She has been grooming for six years, and has been grooming professionally for a little over three of those years. She has been a groomer with the KHS Eastpoint Pet Resort for three years. Heather got her start and interest in grooming while in her last two years of high school, while studying as a teen through the Animal Production and Care Program at the Miami Valley Career Technology Center in Ohio. Shortly after graduating from high school, she continued her education while studying at the Nash Academy of Animal Arts in Lexington, Ky., where she completed the Dog Grooming and Styling Diploma Program. Heather furthers her education and experience by attending trade shows and learning new "tricks of the trade." She also grows as a groomer through her daily work with her pet clients and with the rest of the professional grooming staff at Eastpoint Pet Resort.

Here are before and after shots of one of her her clients, Dobby:
