The Dogfather of Harlem is offering free grooming services to pet owners

impacted by the pandemic

By; Bethany Hines, CNN

Brian Taylor is working hard to keep New York City dogs clean and healthy

by offering free services to "pet parents" financially impacted by the 

coronavirus pandemic.

Every month i"ve been giving two or three clients free grooming services.

Taylor told CNN. The groomer owns Harlem Doggie Day Spa, which

also offers daycare, cage-free boarding and dog walking --but those

services stopped when New York State government ordered "non-essentail"

businesses closed more than two months ago.

I lost 80 percent of mu businesses. I went from seeing 400 to 500 dogs a

month now down to about less than half of that". Taylor explained
