About Us

The history of our salon


Hello, I am Cheryl Wyrick, the owner and manager of Pampered Paws Grooming  Salon Inc. In my youth I 
wanted to be a veterinarian, as many children do, unfortunately, that didn't happen. I  worked at an 
animal hospital at the age of sixteen. Even then I felt a strong desire to care for pets.
As a young adult, I worked at the Humane Society  of Greater KC with the neglected and homeless 
pets. After seven years there, I needed to get away from the abuse. I wanted  to care for healthy, pampered pets.
In 1989, I became a dog and cat groomer with a Vet here in Waldo. In 1998 our grooming staff was 
getting large enough to branch off into my own business so "Pampered Paws Grooming" was 
created. I named it after my old dog "PAWS" a hound mix that I raised with my daughter
.

In 2003 we moved into 7238 Wornall. We were there for 9 years and it served us well.
2013 was a time for change, and we moved to 7719 Wornall. This space is more of a "destination". 
We were able to rehab the building and give it character. We have private parking, and a big yard in 
the back for the dogs who stay with us. It feels like more of a spa now. We know you will love it too. 
We have a wonderful loving, caring, patient team to care for your pets. We take pride in our work and continue our 
education every year at conventions.
As a team, Pam Carlson, ( a local groomer and a dear friend of mine) and I  teach cat grooming  
classes  at seminars. Most groomers are under-trained in this area. Both of us have been grooming 
cats our entire careers. We have lots of fun and enjoy being able to educate other groomers.

I hope this helps you understand the history of our little business. It continues to grow because of
you, our wonderful clients.  You give us the honor of taking care of your cherished family pets
