STANFORD – Two Stanford businesses cut the ribbon as community members gathered to welcome them to the city. 

Ruff to Pawfect Pet Salon
A day of food, fun and of course, pets, was planned by Ruff to Pawfect Pet Salon owner Dillon Roberts who recently moved his pet grooming business from Crab Orchard to Stanford. 
The salon, now located on Lancaster Street in Stanford, officially opened Sept. 12 but a small crowd gathered Saturday to walk through the newly renovated salon, check out classic cars and visit with local veterinarians offering $5 rabies vaccinations. The open house and ribbon cutting also featured an adoption event and wellness examinations for pets. 

Ruff to Pawfect Pet Salon is located at 503 Lancaster Street in Stanford. Pet stylist Dillon Roberts can be reached by phone at (859) 353-2485 or by email at The salon is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and offers dog grooming, pet styling, boarding and hair design.
