Owner, Lori Schacter, talks about her passion for animals

"I think that when you have a passion for something, it’s innate; you’re born into it. When I was very young, I had to be around dogs.  I was desperate to learn everything I could to care for all of their needs.  There is something indescribably special about the importance of the human animal connection; they rely on us and we rely on them.  It is my mandate for The Groom Room to do whatever possible to preserve the trust that animals give to us as we care for their sensitive grooming needs.  Everyone associated with The Groom Room shares this special instinct and devotion."

The Groom Room is an extension of Lori's passion


As her business expanded, she developed an idea that would separate her — at the time — from standard groomers. “When I first started in this field, and still today, there was a tendency to assembly-line grooming. Get as many dogs into the shop as possible. I didn’t want that — I wanted an open environment where it was daycare-like, where the dogs could come in and play or lie down at your feet.”



The Groom Room's success is based on the compassionate and talented and devoted
