Our chosen Non-Profit
The rescue was founded to alleviate overcrowding and unnecessary euthanization within the impound. We have branched out to take in owner surrenders and other animals found in dangerous situations.
We rely on the support of the community to help us provide services to animals. We strive to match the animal with the right home.
We also seek to educate the community regarding the importance of providing proper veterinary care to animals and having all their pets spayed or neutered.

Tessa’s Groom Room
Tessa’s Groom Room is a quiet and calm dog grooming salon in a professional setting in my home. After 14 years of experience in other grooming salons and a vet clinic, I decided to open my own salon to meet my goal of showing customers and their pets how they can be comfortable with the grooming process with a patient and kind groomer. So I created a small and quiet space for the dogs to help them feel at ease while we build a trusting relationship.
It all has been a dream come true for my family and I. This venture has provided me with the flexibility to take care of my family while still allowing me to be the groomer I want to be. The outpouring of love and loyalty from past clients and new clients has meant the world to me including being voted Bismarck Tribune’s 2021 Best of the Best Pet Grooming Facility.
I’ve also been blessed to be successful right from the beginning so I am not taking on any new clients currently. I am always willing to put new clients on a list for future openings plus I am always here for any grooming questions.
