Cotton’s Beauty Bar

Named after Cotton, the beloved personal pet of Best Friends donor Tina Flaherty, the Beauty Bar is a self-service bath and grooming center for pets of all sizes.

Amenities include raised tubs with gentle spray nozzles; grooming stands with blow dryers, brushes, clippers and combs; and all the shampoo, conditioner, and towels you need for a perfectly spruced pup.
