He’s Got An MBA, But He Spends His Life Giving Free Haircuts To Shelter Dogs.
Mark Imhof knows that a good haircut can make a world of difference, even if the client is a canine. Imhof gives free grooming to shelter dogs at the Animal Care Centers of NYC. The New York resident remembered how disheveled his rescue pups were when they were adopted.
He wanted to make the sure these animals are feeling confident when they meet their new families. “I have seen such transformations in almost all the dogs and it is so uplifting and I KNOW they will pay that love forward to their future forever homes,” says Imhof.
Despite having his MBA from New York University, Imhof left his consulting job and now runs his own company; Mark The Dog Guy.
Imhof gives credit to his fiancee for encouraging him to leave his "soulless" job for something he loves.
"I come home uplifted every day. I develop a bond with the animals which is just amazing," says Imhof.
Imhoff admits his hands end up caked in black dirt after washing the animals, he sometimes has to shampoo them up to three times.
The shelter has seen an increase in adoption since Imhoff began giving free haircuts.
