The Notorious Dalis Hitchcock!

Dalis Hitchcock, owner of D Tails Pet Grooming, has had a passion for animals her entire life. She has gradually started rescuing animals, while running a full time business and raising her two daughters.

Over the past few years, support for Dalis has exploded, and her vision of saving animals has transformed. As a result, D-Tails Pet Grooming has been enhanced to include a rescue through the support and donations from community members. Each year, she is able to spay & neuter, get critical medical care, and adopt out hundreds of animals including dogs, cats, and birds. She, and her partner-in-crime David, have had a hand in rescuing several large animals, rehabilitating injurred wild animals, and reuniting lost pets with their owners, including an 8-foot red tail boa constrictor! There is no rescue that is too big or too small - Dalis & Dave rise up to the challenge to be a voice for animals that have none. If there is an animal in need, Dalis & Dave come to the rescue! In addition to rescuing animals, Dalis also offers home relocation assistance to community members who may have a need for temporary boarding of a beloved pet during a move, assistance with vet bills, and community programs to help ensure all animals have a warm place to sleep throughout the harsh Michigan winters.


Please consider supporting Dalis in her rescue efforts through a monetary or supply donation, purchasing a tee-shirt, or participating in a fundraiser.
