This year Vita Canis Style to Rescue supports eight dog rescue organisations. Our charity event is on 12th of May 2024. Together, we can help!

The rescue organisations that will benefit from Style To Rescue 2024 include:

Many Tears Animal Rescue

Spaniel Aid

Wheels to Paws UK

Poodles from Portugal

Hessa’s Homeless Hounds 

Petwelfare Stafford

Scottish Terrier Emergency Rescue (STECs) 

U- Hearts

​The intention of this competition is to recognize the groomer’s ability to take whatever grooming job comes their way. And create a clean, well-groomed dog using rescue dogs from shelters. The groomer will use his or her grooming expertise while handling these dogs with compassion. 

We hope that the rescue dogs will benefit in every way from the grooming experience. And our ultimate goal is for them to find their new forever family.

​Our priority throughout the day is the health and well-being of the rescue dogs. 

​We have a strict list of criteria to which the groomers must adhere in order to remain in the competition. Stewards and the judges will ensure that these are met. These include creating, as much as possible, a stress-free environment for the dog being groomed. And always grooming to suit the dog’s coat condition and conformation. Each groomer will have time with their allocated dog, preparing it for the grooming. During this time, they can get to know each other and bond. There will be a maximum of 30 entrants per session. Bathing times are staggered, reducing the number of dogs on the tables at any point in a session. 

​It is also our desire that every rescue organisation benefits from this event. Not only financially (prizes and raffle) but also through increased publicity. Style to Rescue is run on a not-for-profit basis by volunteers.

 

What People Say...

We are frequent visitors to Vita Canis dog boarding kennels in Uttoxeter. That is my Glen of Imaal Terrier and my brothers Staffordshire Bull Terrier. After a long journey and passing many other kennels, both dogs cannot wait to arrive. And they are very reluctant to leave!

Rachel is the most carrying and very sensitive to the needs of each individual dog.

I have no hesitation to recommend my dog-loving friends to use the Vita Cania boarding kennel in Uttoxeter. And none have ever been disappointed, that is neither the owners nor dogs.
