Press release: Andis
Andis, one of the leading manufacturers in handheld barbering and grooming tools, has announced its sponsorship of The Pandemic Pup Relief Tour to support their work in providing free grooming to dogs and pet parents in need across six major U.S. cities.
The Pandemic Pup Relief Tour is a nationwide grooming road tour to help pups and pet owners experiencing hardships during these difficult times. This six-city circuit will host a two-day pop-up event in each community, offering free grooming and salon services to pups in need. Partnering with local rescues, shelters and Black-owned pet businesses, the tour will highlight everything these partners do to support the cities they live in.
The 57 volunteer groomers for the tour will be creating grooms with Andis’ professional Pulse ZR II cordless clippers. The cordless tool is popular with professional groomers due to its trimming power and three-hour runtime, making it perfect for everything from long days in the shop to traveling pop-up events.
“We are proud to partner with The Pandemic Pup Relief Tour. Their mission of bringing grooming services to those who need it most during the pandemic aligns with Andis’ commitment to supporting groomers and their communities,” said Laura Andis-Bishop, president of the Andis Foundation and co-CEO of Andis Company. “For nearly 100 years, Andis has been producing the best tools on the market so that groomers can keep their clients happy and healthy.”
Andis Company has a rich history of giving back to the community through both donations as well as education. Andis Grooming College is an online, best-in-class industry resource that is free to all pet parents and groomers. Serving as an educational hub, this portal recommends the right tools and teaches users how to get the most out of them.
“We’re so grateful for our team of donors, volunteers and the Andis’ sponsorship that is making this event series possible,” said Brian Taylor, professional pet groomer and organizer of The Pandemic Pup Relief Tour. “We believe that dogs are family and they deserve nothing but the best. With standards as high as ours, it made perfect sense to work with Andis Clippers as our tool partner.”
