Little known facts about us:

We used to groom dogs at Winnebago Animal Services when we started our business, we bathed lots of puppies.

Our first customer was a psychic, we had to pick up and drop off her dog, she wanted to trade for a reading but we said no and she paid us all in coins.

We also groomed dogs for Noah's Ark when Chuck and Jan Stewart were running it.

We warm up our shampoo every day so it's not too cold for the dogs.

The owners Sally and Dena are sisters.

We are not an assembly line grooming shop, we take our time and try to make the dogs comfortable.

About Us


Sally and Dena started Pampered Pet in 1984 and have always worked with local shelters and rescues either by supporting their fundraisers or by grooming the dogs so they can be adopted. They were on the Canine Classic committee from 2001 to 2013 benefiting the Winnebago County Animal Services Auxiliary Patch Fund but their biggest passion is Kibble Korner the local pet food pantry. Kibble Korner was started in 2009 as a temporary solution for families that were having financial problems and could not afford to feed their pets but the need had become greater and it is now permanent. It is located inside the Rock River Valley Food Pantry at 421 S. Rockton Ave. in Rockford and serves Winnebago County. If you are in need of pet food you can go to and download the forms or pick them up at the pantry, you must prove that you are low income. If you are interested in donating food or money or volunteering to help transport food or need more information you can e-mail and you can also "Like" them on Facebook. There are fundraisers throughout the year so check our Calendar Page.
