Dorian Renee’ Branham

Dorian Renee’ Branham was born January 21, 1961, to loving parents Betty & George Branham in Detroit, Michigan. Dorian was the second of four Branham children.

Dorian grew up with a love of all animals. She would find a kitten or a puppy, birds, fish; she wanted to keep them all if she could even the baby lamb a neighbor gave her.

During here senior year, she wanted an after-school job in pet grooming. Her boss noticed how well she worked with animals and he decided to put her into the full grooming program. That’s how it all began…her dream was coming true.

She decided that pet grooming would be the business she would follow. Dorian started her business in August of 1990, starting small and then building her dream over 30 years from Southern California to Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dorian Renee’ Branham departed from this life May 15, 2021. She leaves to cherish her memory; her mother Betty Branham, sister Denise & her husband Gerald Swoope, brother George & his wife Donna Branham, brother Richard & his wife Kristen Branham, two nephews Devin & Erik Swoope, two nieces Whitney & Hadley Branham, one great-nephew Hendrix Swoope, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, numerous friends & customers, and countless four-pawed fur friends.

    Dorian is such a swat and kind hearted lady. Her being was taking care of our babies/animals. You could always depend on Dorian for advice on how to. She was always there to help.

    My wife, Bonnie, knew her for about 30 years, and when I married her in Vegas 21 years ago, I met Dorian and we visited often. We loved her buoyant, happy spirit and her tender caring of people and animals. George and Dorian will always be in our hearts. One of the nicest people we’ve ever known!
