 Dog Picture BeforeDog Picture After

Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter Manager Hilary Knight received a visit from Kami Tassin of Houma in July with an offer to provide grooming services should the need arise.

Knight said she took Tassin up on it recently after her staff had a large influx of dogs show up at the shelter.

Following the arrival of 29 dogs from one owner in Galliano alone, Knight and her staff were overwhelmed.

“This dog (Mark) needed more extensive attention. It (Tassin volunteering to groom the male Schnauzer mix) was very appreciated!,” Knight said.

According to Tassin, she was happy to see the amazing transformation the dog underwent after working on him.

The 35-year-old Tassin owns her own dog grooming business in Houma, but feels compelled to volunteer at local shelters whenever possible.

“It is very important,” Tassin said of volunteering at the shelter. “It helps everyone, not only the animals, but the people doing it as well. Even the smallest contributions make a difference at a shelter. Trust me, I should know having both worked and volunteered over the years at local shelters (in Houma and Thibodaux).”
