The Animal Innovations Show

Dec 21, 2021

Canine Grooming Academy (CGA) was founded by seasoned animal welfare leaders as a beauty school for dog grooming.

It's a job training program for people with barriers to employment (e.g., domestic violence survivors) in the pet grooming industry, which faces a chronic shortage of skilled labor. This supply/demand problem leads to high prices and undermines accessibility for low-income pet owners, whose animals are at risk for ending up in shelters due to lack of care.
