Ready for a gorgeous transformation?

Max, an older gentleman, is a shih tzu. Found as a stray on the streets of Anaheim, CA, his loving disposition and trust of people led his rescuers to believe he was either lost or abandoned by his family.

Orange County Animal Care brought Max to the shelter in the hopes that he’d be adopted, but since older animals are often overlooked, there was concern that Max — and others like him — wouldn’t find forever homes.

According to the folks at Pawsitive, Hollywood Grooming decided to help, donating four vans and five professional groomers to the cause. Including Max (whose stunning transformation you’ll see here) they made over 56 dogs that day. All of them have since been adopted. We’ve no doubt that their services were a big part of selling the charms of these lovely dogs.

Every dog deserves a second chance!
