About Us

Hello and thank you for visiting my site.  My name is  Lori Jerusik, owner  and founder of Mutt Rescue, Inc., and I am ALL ABOUT THE ANIMALS!  This is the message I teach, mirror and live by.  I am more than just a Groomer, Dog Obedience Trainer and Dog Behavior Specialist, I am a passionate person dedicated to helping animals.

I went to a fabulous K-9 School (CT K-9) in 1995 to become certified in grooming and wanted to give myself a birthday present, so I started Mutt Cuts, LLC out of my garage on January 1, 1996.  Shortly after, I grew and started a mobile grooming service until I grew out of that and needed to secure myself with a store-front business here in Chicopee, MA.  I then decided  that I needed to go back to CT K-9 School in Newington, CT and develop my business further to become an obedience trainer and behavioral specialist, so I can help people with their dog's behavior issues.

I realized I needed to expand more due to many people telling me how upset they were having to keep their dog(s) in a kennel while they were at work all day.  This prompted me to create my doggy daycare program, which has made so many people and their dogs very happy. 

The next addition to my facility came from when I discovered the many, many animals that were abandoned unnecessarily, thrown out, abused, kept outside chained with 2 feet of movement room, homelessness and seeing them in high-kill shelters and not given even 24 hours to find a new family.  This broke my heart and gave me numerous sleepless nights to which I built an isolation and quarantine to help the unfortunate animals grow and survive.  The isolation became such a success that a new isolation is now under construction and will open in August, 2017.

As of August, 2016, I am very proud to say that I have become a 501C3 non-profit rescue which I aptly named Mutt Rescue, Inc..  This will allow me to continue to pursue my dreams and ambitions by rescuing the many needy animals from abusive situations, high-kill shelters and those left homeless and abandoned.  Finding furever homes for those many, many remarkable homeless dogs and cats is why I needed to become a rescue. 

ALSO, I am happy to announce that at the end of 2017 I will be a licensed aqua therapist for dogs.  The many benefits to aqua therapy include, but are not limited to, post-operative rehabilitation, arthritis, disabilities, prevention of injury, retraining due to nerve damage or deficiencies, pain control, general conditioning, intensive conditioning for sport dogs and hydro-massage.

My love and compassion for animals has aided me throughout my life to return the unconditional love they have given and continue to give us.
