Texas Pet Grooming Salons Hit by String of Break-Ins

The crimes happened during overnight hours between late June and late July.




Pet grooming businesses have been hit by break-ins at least seven times in recent weeks.

The crimes happened during overnight hours between late June and late July, KXAN-TV reports.

Eliana Thormann owns Mod Mutt Salon and Sniff Grooming Studio, both of which were broken into. About $600 in cash was stolen.

“It’s not just the cash register that’s taken,” she said. “It’s the emotional … like how violated you feel.”

That’s in addition to “the whole ordeal … rescheduling clients, vacuuming all the glass shattered on the ground,” Thormann said.

Barkin’ Creek Dog Kitchen and Bath was also hit by burglars. CEO Jeffrey Springer said several thousand dollars in cash was taken.


Surveillance video for most of the stores showed a suspect “smashing something through the glass door, going straight to the cash register, and walking out with it,” according to KXAN.

Police did not any immediate comment Monday on the rash of break-ins, the news outlet reports.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
