Local groomer helping Gulf Coast Dogs

Posted by Sheli Muniz -email

DELRAY BEACH(WFLX)---Dogs displaced by the Gulf Coast oil spill have found a new home thanks to a local business.

Catherine Householder--who owns a pet grooming shop in Delray Beach learned about the hundreds of displaced animals in Louisiana from a story she saw on CNN. Catherine drove 17 hours to rescue 10 very sweet pups. When she got the dogs back to Florida she learned--they needed much more medical attention than originally thought.

Problems like worms, heart worms, eye infections and skin problems. Her vet says it will cost up to $5000 for proper treatment for all 10 dogs.

Catherine said, "I'm just a little business trying to keep my door open...try to help those dogs the best I can, not realizing that they were going to come with so many extensive medical problems."

Now Catherine needs help to save these perky pups that were pushed out of their loving homes because of the BP Oil spill. Catherine said, "they're all doing really good, it's just a matter of them healthy and into good homes."
