Never has a groom

    meant so much

 

Dogs love us, and so will you.

The Salon – A Grooming Project provides caring and meticulous grooming services to our four-legged clients, from basic baths and brushes to more skilled techniques like hand-scissoring. Our groomers are animal lovers first and foremost–we love helping dogs and cats feel good!

While we may look and feel like a typical grooming salon, we are different in a very special way. Our salon is run by graduates of Kansas City’s only grooming school, The Grooming Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping local families leave the cycle of generational poverty. By bringing your pets in for a groom you aren’t just helping them look and feel great, you are also helping local families thrive!

The School

Before our groomers can work at The Salon, they must graduate from our state certified grooming school. Interested in learning more about where our students start their journey?
