* Pet grooming leader partners with GreaterGood to put new face on adoption *
Each year, more than 8 million dogs enter shelter homes. The majority of these dogs are dirty and matted. It is sad to know that only half of these dogs are getting groomed. It’s great that Wahl Pet Products and GreaterGood.org have teamed up with shelters nationwide to demonstrate how the transformative power of grooming shelter dogs can help find their forever home.
“When it comes to pet adoption, a first impression is crucial in determining if an animal will find a family,” says Shay Moeller, pet product manager for Wahl. “By providing pet shelters with the grooming supplies they need we can demonstrate that the same animals often perceived to be ‘damaged goods’ are actually healthy, fun loving pets deserving of a new home.”
For the past four years, Wahl’s all-natural pet shampoos have helped shelters clean up more than 50,000 dogs. Many of these amazing transformations have been captured through photos and compiled into the Dirty Dogs Before & After Gallery.
Wahl Fourth Annual Dirty Dogs Contest
Ten of the most dramatic transformations from the Dirty Dogs Before & After Gallery have been selected to participate in the contest. Three winners will be selected by public votes. First place takes home $5,000, second place receives $2,000, and third place earns $1,000. The Dirty Dogs Contest runs from July 6-19, 2015.

I love this program! I covered them last year and will do so again. I think between programs like Wahl’s and photographers like Sophie Gamand, shelter dogs are getting the kind of marketing they need to find good homes faster. Bravo, Wahl’s and great for covering, Ros and Sugar!
