Dear grooming community family.

The devastating fires in Northern California have taken their toll on our grooming family. California Professional Pet Groomers Association members Shawn Marie Gaddini, Lori Monian and Candice Seals have all lost their homes, businesses or both. They left their homes with their pets and the clothes on their bodies. All that remains are piles of ashes. And now, fires in Ventura are wrecking the same devastation in that area.

While insurance will eventually help, we all know that it takes time. Getting some quick cash to these people, and other groomers who have suffered great losses, is crucial. The CPPGA is stepping up to take donations and distribute them to the people in the greatest immediate need. We are a non-profit 501(c)6 tax exempt organization and 100% of what is donated will be distributed quickly to groomers in immediate need.

If everyone would just "Groom One for the Fire Victims" we can accomplish so much. Just donate the fee from one dog this week. It would mean so much for any of these people. Post a picture of your groom on the Facebook page and let people know you are helping. You can donate through Paypal. Our account is cppgainc@gmail.com and all funding going through this is marked for our fire victims.

I am currently at the New England Grooming Show and generous groomers here are digging into their pockets for their sister and brother groomers.

We are all one within our industry. Any amount will help. https://www.paypal.me/CPPGA
