SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The owner of an Elk Grove dog grooming business has been sentenced for felony animal cruelty charges, the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday.

Stephanie Frentz, the owner and operator of Soapy Paws in Elk Grove, pled guilty to felony animal cruelty in February. On April 1, she was sentenced to 180 days in jail, two years probation, and was ordered to not groom animals for the next 10 years.

Frantz’s case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Monica Robinson of the Animal Cruelty Unit.

Court documents say Frentz, who worked as a groomer for 17 years, acted with negligence when she allowed a miniature schnauzer named Rosco to fall off the grooming table in May of 2020. Prosecutors say Frentz didn’t come to Rosco’s aid for several minutes, eventually causing his death by strangulation.

“Through the efforts of Elk Grove Animal Control and the District Attorney’s Office, it was determined that Frentz’s negligence while grooming Rosco caused his death,” the district attorney’s office said. reached out to Soapy Paws for comment and did not receive an immediate answer
