Due to the COVID-19 Virus we will be temporary suspend all grooming and closing our doors for at least 2-3 weeks unless a local quarantine is mandated by local government. We understand the severity and will take all precautions to prevent the spread of this virus. Once our business is capable of opening, we will take all precautions to thoroughly clean our salon. We ask all our clients to PLEASE allow your dogs to use the bathroom before arriving to our salon in order to keep our facility clean.
We will post updates on our site and Facebook page when we will resume business. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope all our clients remain healthy and safe during this difficult time. Thank you for understanding and God bless you and your families.
Forever Friends was founded by Anna Barlog in 1995. She starting grooming in 1990 and as time grew and experience lengthened she opened Forever Friends. With 25 years within the industry she has gained a vast knowledge of breeds and styles. Over the years she has also brought aboard staff to help with the work load - groomer and bathers.
The main philosophy at Forever Friends is to provide the best possible care all while beautifully grooming your dog with competitive pricing. Our facilities are designed in two sections, grooming and dog supplies.
We are always making improvement to our salon to maintain a clean look and fresh style. Starting in 2019 our shop will be under new management, 2nd generation ownership! Mark Castillo, son of Anna will be continuing the business for years to come with improvements along the way.
CIV or canine influenza virus is a serious concern and we understand that our clients see their dogs as family. With the fear of CIV, we at Forever Friends have always maintained a clean environment for all dogs held at our salon. Our daily sanitation methods include cleaning/disinfecting all cages, bathtubs and grooming table tops as well as mopping the entire salon with disinfectant daily. We are mindful of all dogs entering our salon in case we see any signs of ill dogs. Lastly, we work expeditiously to return your dog without long stays at our salon.
All things considered, we ask everyone to walk your dogs prior to your scheduled appointments. With your assistance and our cleanliness we will continue to keep our salon safe for your dogs. Though the mortality rate amoungst dogs with CIV is low, we hold this concern high. For more information regarding CIV please click on the ASPCA link for additional information regarding CIV.
