Best Friends Dog Grooming

on behalf of Sue Piccchioni
 VANCOUVER, WA

On January 15, 2017  Oasis Market was the scene of a homicide and fire. 

Best Friends Dog Grooming was located in that strip mall.  

Business owner Sue Picchioni had opened the doors in 1993 and it has continued to be a family owned and operated business. 

Sue lost 2 resident cats and her 7 birds, in the fire.  Most had been hand raised by her over the years.   As a small business owner, in a tough economy... Sue unfortunately had no insurance  to cover any of her tools of the trade or merchandise that was lost in the fire.  

We we are asking for your help. 

Sue will need everything to start back up.   From scissors, clippers, brushes and combs, to tables, dryers, crates, merchandise to sell and even first and last months rent for a new location.  

If if you were one of her valued customers, then you know how much this business and her clients mean to her.  Sue has been grooming dogs for 33 years and just wants to get back to work.  She had built a great business and a wonderful reputation in our community.   

Please - if you are able to donate to this cause-- please do so.  Any amount will help. 

Thank you,
Donna Lobdell

I am so grateful for all the support we have gotten since the devastating fire. So many people have reached out and offered love and support that it's just overwhelming.
When the business burned down I thought " Well that's it. I don't have money to rebuild . Thirty three years of work gone in one day.
But, my phone started ringing even as I watched the fire. People I didn't even know were offering tables and dryers . Even offers of working out of their shop.
My sister Donna Posey Lobdell set up a gofundme for me. My sons Jason Hassler and Richard Hassler decided to put on a fundraiser.
Now, here I am one month later. I have a new location, donated grooming equipment, and enough money to purchase the rest!
I am so blessed. I've always said dog people are good people .
So a huge thank you for allowing me to be get back to work. Dog Grooming isn't just what I do, its who I am.
