Pet Portraits for the holidays at Ufuri Pet Salon

By: Karrie Beck

Attention loving pet owners! The holiday season is fast approaching. Do you have pet portrait plans for your four-legged special someone? Blue Water Healthy Living wants you to know there’s a safe option for grooming and daycare for all the furry people in your lives. Beautiful downtown Port Huron is home to Ufuri Pet Salon and Daycare. Their slogan, “Where your pet is a superstar,” truly says it all. Located on the historic corner of Grand River and Huron Avenue, Ufuri is the site of the former Blue Water Jewelers. This special location is fitting for the unique charm and decor that is Ufuri.

Owner, Spring Burrell with Standard Poodle, Mariah.

Pets are more than pets at Ufuri, they’re family. From the moment your pet arrives, they’re superstars. “Your dogs are loved like our own dogs” says owner, Spring Burrell. She is proud of the extra attention and care she and her staff provide to her clients. Mariah, the standard poodle groomed as a giraffe and pictured right, was part of the Art on the River celebration which took place in June in Downtown Port Huron. This is no ordinary pet salon. Charming touches and details everywhere you turn; specialty hand-crafted clothing items, along with annual events such as: Christmas pictures with Santa, pet painting classes, and a Halloween parade. All these special touches are what sets this place apart from the rest.

“We’ve had the pure enjoyment of taking our two furry ‘kidz’ to Ufuri for three years now. As soon as we walk in her door – immediate wiggles & tail wagging, and they are into play date mode! They are greeted and hugged by either Spring or one of her staff with the same enthusiasm a ‘grandmama’ gives her offspring – all heart. The special care and expertise Spring puts into every one of their grooming visits makes her the downtown treasure we’ve come to know, love, trust, and depend on from one rescued heart to another.” Joy Houser

Taking your pet to Ufuri is like having a massage done from someone who’s not only a licensed massage therapist, but also a state certified physician’s assistance; a person who knows the body and muscle groups extensively. Who would you rather entrust your body/pet to? They use all natural, Michigan-made products and pride themselves on their educated and knowledgeable practices. In addition to being an experienced groomer, Spring brings with her nearly ten years of veterinarian office experience. As a result, she is able to holistically care for your pet and their individual needs, taking into account each unique breed’s requirements for personalized care. In this way, Ufuri is a pet salon that’s a step above the rest. To know the owner, Spring, is to truly know a heart of gold. She was born to care for animals, and her passion for the proper treatment and care of all animals – rescues, strays, etc- runs deep. “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

In addition to a full-service grooming salon, they offer daily and extended daycare. Headed to town and want to go to dinner? She offers hourly pet sitting rates as well. “Here at Ufuri Pet Salon, we use only top-quality organic products, from our shampoo to our exclusive brand of food, Life’s Abundance…” As a consumer, a business that goes the extra mile is appreciated beyond measure – especially when it involves our beloved furry friends. The “How do I look” sign, a perfectly positioned mirror for animals, along with car-side pick up service, Spring and her staff have all the bases covered. Animals leave well-groomed and loved each and every time they visit.
