Mark Imhof, a professional dog groomer, visits Animal Care Centers of NYC to give old dogs free baths and haircuts so they could finally find a home.

“She didn’t want to see me go for another soulless job, and she saw the joy I had when I interacted with our animals,” says Mark Imhof.
Mark Imhof was also inspired by Erin O’Sullivan of Susie’s Senior Dogs — he and his fiancée had previously adopted two dogs from the rescue group.
Mark Imhof now has his own dog-walking, pet-sitting and grooming business. But even though he’s become a pro, he continues to help the dogs at ACC — and then comes home to his own dog family of four, including two rescued pit bulls.
