Nicole Cecil,
Owner
I have always had a love for animals. My first job was a vet assistant. After that I decided I wanted to be a pet stylist and pursued my grooming career over 17 years ago. I take great pride in caring and giving the utmost quality in taking care of your 4-legged babies. I strive in building a long-lasting relationship with both you and your pets. I look forward to meeting you!

Hi, my name is Monkey ! I suppose that was more fitting back in my hay day. I'm a mature gal now and really laid back. I love to be around my humans, and if you have a calm and mellow cat or dog I could fit right in.
Hi there, my name is Jack ! I’m house-broken and crate-trained. I am nervous in new environments and with new people, I just need an opportunity to show someone how amazing I truly am. Just remember, patience and allowing me to open up at my own pace is key.

 The Suncoast Humane Society Thrift Store on the Island of Venice is ready for your viewing of books, kitchenware, furniture, clothes, jewelry and numerous other items – vintage specials and pet supplies.
Please come and see it all at 656 S. Tamiami Trail in the Rialto Shopping Plaza. We are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Saturday. Looking is entertaining and purchases provide funds to care for animals at our Animal Care Center!
