Staffers roaming the 8,000-square-foot of Petz Place often pause to greet regular shoppers and their pups by name. The friendly associates also do their best to spot first-time pet owners so they can direct them to essential items and share tips on how to train their new companions to sit, stay, and greet them at the door with cocktails in paw. They only stock premium items, including durable pet toys and beds, as well as a huge selection of natural and raw pet foods. They also house a colorful community of birds, reptiles, and tropical fish within fetching distance of care products and equipment. In addition to helping keep pets healthy and clean, the store entertains pups and their owners with visiting photographers and, at Christmas time, photo ops with Santa Claus.
It begins with a facial massage with MMIV shave oil, creating a protective barrier and conditioning the skin with Vitamin E. Next, warm towels open pores, soften scruff, and relax muscles without the adverse and downright weird affects of a horse tranquilizer. Finally, hand-whipped MMIV shave cream coats jawlines, another product packed with Vitamin E as well as green tea. This process comprises just the preliminary steps for an Ultimate Shave at M.U.G. Men's Ultimate Grooming. Once faces are prepped, specially trained barbers shave with, and then against, the grain. Then, they wrap smooth faces in a cool towel before spreading on moisturizer like butter on a dry Thanksgiving turkey—but without Grams and Aunt Carol watching closely.
All of the MMIV products are exclusive to M.U.G. Its masterminds spent almost a decade formulating them specifically for the Ultimate Shave, making sure each held an ample amount of conditioning Vitamin E. The staff, which also cuts and colors hair, trusts in the products so fully that they'll give you a refund if the MMIV line doesn't deliver the closest shave since Napoleon bear-crawled away from Waterloo, sobbing into his epaulets.
The two-woman team of Michel Herstam and Heather Allen started HALO (Helping Animals Live On) Animal Rescue out of their homes in 1994 to provide temporary shelter for abandoned cats and dogs until they were adopted. Today, out of the basement and into its own adoption center, HALO’s mission is twofold: it aims to rescue animals at risk of being euthanized in shelters and works to create a better welfare system for the 100,000 cats and dogs that enter Maricopa County shelters every year. Each animal in the organization’s care receives a complete medical examination and treatments, and no animal is euthanized for being unable to find a home. Online bios highlight animals for potential adopters, focusing on how each animal will fit into an individual's home, family, and lifestyle in order to foster a lifelong match. In 2011, HALO placed more than 3,520 cats and dogs in loving homes.
At Kimbur Pet Wash & Suites, the dedicated staff pampers pets with full-service washing and boarding services while also allowing owners to bond with furry companions in do-it-yourself pet-washing bays. Sky-blue hues flow throughout the facility, creating a calming atmosphere for pets as they ease into specially designed tubs to enjoy a relaxing scrub from owners ($12+), professional staff members ($19+), or fed-up feline roommates. Each bay hosts a pup-friendly arsenal of toiletries, such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, and dryers, all of which can help to get canines ready for an evening at the dog prom or a stay in a private, carpeted suite. With each stay, boarded dogs receive up to four daily walks and up to an hour of individual playtime, as well as a nightly frozen treat.
The skilled doctors and veterinary nurses at 43rd Ave., an AAHA-accredited facility, tune up cuddly quadrupeds with tender care. Comprehensive nose-to-tail physical exams are conducted by a vet-and-nurse team, who begin each checkup with a weigh-in, temperature-taking, and pulse check, followed by an examination of the eyes, ears, mouth, and nose to identify symptoms of infection, injury, or abnormalities such as restless-tail syndrome. After a skin and coat survey, the abdomen and extremities are gently inspected with a listening to the heart and lungs to ensure the absence of latent injuries or budding thumbs.
