Dog & Cat Grooming

At Community Animal Inn and Spa, we take great pride in offering excellent, professional grooming services for dogs and cats in Shrewsbury, Worcester, Grafton, Westborough and the Northborough areas. We have three dedicated groomers on our staff, Laura Drewry, Amanda Nelson, and Denise Caron, who are highly trained pet groomers and experienced in all breed types.

Pet Grooming Services

We are a full-service pet grooming center, providing a large variety of options for your pet. Your dog or cat is treated gently and without tranquilizers. We limit the number of appointments scheduled per day so that special care and attention can be devoted to your pet.

We offer grooming 7 days a week! Some of our grooming services include:

  • Hydrosurge® spa bath with warm water and shampoo to wash away unpleasant odors, thoroughly clean, and provide a soothing, gentle massage. Your pet will also enjoy a luxurious coat conditioner, fluff and dry and a relaxing brush out.
  • Spa groom – a spa groom begins with a spa bath (see above), gentle ear cleansing and nail trimming, followed by a breed specific style with a hand scissor finish.
  • Nail trims
  • Medicated or specialty shampoo baths (you are also welcome to bring your own shampoo if your pet has a special kind)
  • Re-moisturizing or conditioning hair treatments
  • All breed standard and specialty haircuts
  • All breed cat grooming

…and more! If you’re curious about additional grooming services offered by Community Animal Inn and Spa, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Meet Our Groomers

Laura Drewry

Laura has always had a passion and love for animals, and she began pursuing a dream of working with them in 2004 when she became a certified dog trainer. She changed paths in 2008 when she began bathing and brushing dogs at PetSmart. In 2009 she moved to Petco where she apprenticed to become a groomer. Since she joined our team at Community Animal Inn and Spa, she has also added cat grooming to her list of pet care accomplishments. She loves working with our grooming guests and can’t wait to meet your furry friend.

Denise Caron

Denise knew she wanted to work with animals since she was very little. She started in the grooming business in 1993 as a bather/brusher and quickly moved up to being a groomer of both dogs and cats. Denise has taken pride in making your pets look beautiful since joining us in 2005. She loves seeing old friends and looks forward to meeting new ones for a little one-on-one pampering here at the spa.

Amanda Nelson

Amanda fell in love with the grooming profession when she started working at PetSmart in 2001. She turned her passion into reality when she attended the PetSmart Pet Stylist Academy and became a groomer in 2004. Amanda shares her home with two cats, Odin and Tesla. Amanda is ready to handle all of your pet’s grooming needs!
