Update: It was a heated competition between the top three contenders: Loula, Carlee and Pepper, but in the end, Loula won with over 1600 votes! In a heart-warming turn of events; however, the Anaya-Mendoza Clan, Loula’s family, has generously donated their $100 gift card to Pepper and the Agoura Hills Animal Shelter.

In a note to CV Happening, Lynni  Mendoza-Anaya wrote:

We are overwhelmed with the love and support we received from our family and friends. This contest brought us all together in the spirit of competition, we had voters from NY, CO, NM, WA, AZ, Mexico, Chile, El Salvador and even Argentina to name a few. We would be honored in donating the prize to Pepper and the Agoura Hills Shelter.

In response, Helen Hartel, a shelter volunteer and Pet Spotlight columnist wrote:

I am over the moon just thinking about the generosity of the The Anaya-Mendoza Clan and cannot wait to visit Shaggy Chic to select the goods and or services they offer.

Shaggy Chic Pet Boutique, best known for their Oak Park pet grooming salon, has recently added an upscale shop location at Whizin’s Market Square in Agoura Hills. Owner Linda Manasee chose the name Shaggy Chic because “it feels cozy and comfortable and that’s how I want my customers to feel when they walk in,” she said. “Most importantly, I wanted an environment for pets where they are free to explore, sniff, and wander around to their hearts content.” The store offers everything from high-end grooming supplies to designer carriers to pet clothes and costumes. For more information, call 818-889-9663  for  the boutique, and 818-879-9663 for grooming.
