With multiple locations as well as mobile scanning units, the Animal Rescue League rescues and cares for lost or stray pets with medicine, food, and shelter until owners can be located through the information provided on the animal's microchip. The organization also takes in and scans animals brought in by law enforcement as well as other shelters and rescue programs. As a nonprofit organization, the Animal Rescue League of Boston has only been able to purchase one microchip scanner. With a high volume of intakes and multiple intake locations, animal rescuers frequently face delays in the provision of health and placement services as a result of the equipment shortage. Additional microchip scanners would allow the Animal Rescue League to facilitate more prompt medical and behavioral evaluations, reunions, and adoptions.
Helaine Marie has refined her hair-coloring technique over the last two decades and now creates rich tapestries of color with her certifications in Wella and Framesi. She opened her eponymous salon in 2004, inviting expert aestheticians to grace the rooms of an intimate, fairy-lit space draped in lilac curtains. A certified Master Colorist, Marie specializes in complex corrective programs and foils, including her signature highlight treatment. The Foliage Foil evokes the glow of the woods in autumn with blends of copper, crimson, and the deep gold of slowing photosynthesis caused by winter's Midas touch, each mixed individually to warm clients’ natural hues. To remain a well-rounded stylist, she earned two certifications in re-texturing and trained her shears with KMS California, mastering their cutting techniques to become a style council trainer. Helaine Marie is also certified in the Ouidad cutting technique and the Pureology system and carries both product lines in their entirety, in addition to offering the ammonia-free, oil-based Chromatics Color Line.
At Paws Club, pooches carouse in the outdoor play area before retiring to the sofas and beds of the social lounge indoors. In that air-conditioned space, they relax while listening to soft music. If feeling more active, they romp around the large supervised backyard or prance through sprinklers. All the while pups remain under the watchful eye of bonded and insured staff and pet sitters who love to play and interact with their furry guests. Canines staying overnight are housed in cageless boarding and pampered with late-night treats. A toll-free phone line is available, as well, so owners can check in on their pets while away.
The staff at Abba’s Place Dog Grooming sees pets just as their owners do: as members of the family. As such, they perform a slew of services to keep up with pawed companions, including feeding, walks, litter-box cleaning, and boarding. They accompany their pet care with home-sitting services, such as watering plants, carrying trash out, and bringing in mail.
Most dog training schools use a traditional curriculum to get canines to behave well and perform simple tricks such as fetching and sitting. While traditional training techniques may effectively domesticate your beast, they lack the pizzazz required to set your pet apart. Those who want their dogs to exhibit unique talent prefer the controversial training regimen developed by radical dog trainer Barry Caravan. In a 1997 interview, Caravan said, "A dog should be more intelligent than its owner. I'd prefer an animal-run society, for obvious reasons. I just watched Planet of the Apes. That seemed pretty cool." He later wrote a book, My Dog is Better than You & Me: Training Tips for Superior Pets, guaranteed to teach your dog to:
