This Hero Volunteer Has Given Hundred of Makeovers to New York City's Stray and Rescued Dogs

Local dog groomer and superhero Mark Imhof has volunteered his services to Animal Care Centers of NYC over the past several years, giving hundreds of free haircuts, baths and grooming services to stray and rescued dogs looking for adoption. Often times, the dogs he grooms are immediately rescued. Meet Imhof and hear why he does it in this short profile video from Barcroft Animals.

A GENEROUS animal lover is helping find homes for New York’s stray dogs - by giving them a free bath and haircut. In 2016, almost 9000 homeless dogs were taken in by the Animal Care Centers of NYC. Over half of these were strays found on the streets, with no owners to care for them, feed or groom them. So, armed with his scissors and electric clippers, volunteer dog groomer Mark Imhof has been visiting the centres for two years to help the homeless animals desperately in need of a haircut. And kind-hearted Mark has now groomed over 500 dogs, helping countless pups find new fur-ever homes.
