Ryan's Pet Supplies sponsors Rescue Rodeo at SuperZoo
Ryan's Pet Supplies and SuperZoo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ryan's Pet Supplies® is proud to have been co-sponsoring of Rescue Rodeo since its inception in 2008. Ryan's has always believed in supporting groomers and competitive grooming. We couldn't have been happier when SuperZoo combined a grooming competition with animal rescue & adoption. It's a great way to showcase a groomer's skills and to raise awareness for the need for pet adoption. We hope that people recognize the time, love and personal expense that these groomers put into grooming the rescue rodeo dogs.

Many of these dogs have been abused and are not used to being groomed or handled. Their temperaments are a challenge and their coats are often matted to the point where they have to be shaved. Grooming them is truly a labor of love. We are thrilled to be showing our support along with Wahl Corporation for the fith year in a row. We at Ryan's invite you to stop by our booth and show your support and be sure to watch Rescue Rodeo Competition and show support for competitive grooming and animal rescue.
