Parker the puppy’s never had a bad hair day. She and her flawless 5-week old littermates can soon leave the nest to seek new families, but the happiest ending of all is that mama gets a new home, too. Because great rescue groups don’t leave moms behind, the 2nd annual BarkAid benefit cut-a-thon takes place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday (Oct. 21) at Salon Roxy on Lithia-Pinecrest Road in Valrico. Get a designer human haircut or a spa day for your pooch while meeting available pets of all sizes, ages, and breeds (like Parker). All adoptables come spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and purrrfectly coifed.
