For the month of May, Muddy Paws is offering teachers one free dog grooming.

“We know that the Tulsa metro community has helped us so much. And the Tulsa school teachers walk out had such an impact on all of us that we felt like we wanted to give back to the community,” said Debbie Davis, director of operations and outreach.

“We may not as an organization understand everything that was involved with the teacher walkout, however we want to give that same unconditional acceptance of the teachers, we want to honor them, just like these little doggies honor us,” Davis said.

Teachers must call to set up an appointment and dogs must be current on their vaccinations. Grooms typically range $20 to $65 depending on the size and type of dog. The free groom is good for one dog, no matter the size, and will include bath, nails, ear cleaning, anal expression and full haircut.

Muddy Paws is staffed by Pets helping People, a training program for incarcerated women. During the month of March, the group groomed 1,000 dogs, the most groomed during a single month since the program started in 2010.

As of the end of 2017, the group’s recidivism rate was down to 1%, the state rate for females for the same time period is 14.4%.
