OLIVE BRANCH, MS (WMC-TV) - Monday was just another typical day for the staff at Sassy N' Spots Doggie Spa and Boutique in Olive Branch, where making pets look good is a priority.
For owners Ronnie and Lisa Pollard, life is all about giving back, especially to troubled teens who need it the most.
"We decided long ago that we wanted to have a home for abandoned, abused and troubled teenagers," she said.
Four months ago, after much prayer, the Pollards decided to launch an outreach program called Teenage 180. Since then, they haven taken four teens into their home and are in the process of adopting two of them.
The program's name has a significant meaning to the Pollards.
"We wanted people to understand when they see 180, they know it means a complete turnaround," Pollard said.
