Tackling a Dirty Issue

Three out of four animals entering shelters today are in need of grooming.

Through the “Dirty Dogs” program, Wahl provides the products and resources to help them get cleaned up and adopted.

Oatmeal No-Rinse Waterless Shampoo

The Wahl No-Rinse Waterless Shampoo lets you clean your pet between baths. Simply distribute the foam through your pet’s fur and then towel or brush them off. The foaming agent removes top-level dirt and odors, resulting in a soft, clean coat.

Powered by lithium ion technology, the clipper outperforms standard Wahl® rechargeable clippers by providing up to two times the run time, clocking in at one hour and forty minutes on a full charge.

Dirty Dogs Contest

Giuseppe's arrival to an animal shelter started out as a heartbreaking case of neglect, but ended as a testament to second chances. Five pounds of matted fur covered up a host of health issues and rendered Giuseppe unable to walk; however, once groomed, he could finally get the dedicated medical care and foster support he needed. Now this senior pup is living out his golden years in the comfort of a loving home. Giuseppe’s dramatic transformation not only got him a new “leash” on life, but the title of America’s Top Shelter Dog Makeover in the 2024 Dirty Dogs Contest. The annual effort from pet industry leaders Wahl and Greater Good Charities demonstrates the power grooming can have on pet adoption and awards the top three dog makeovers with grant money for their local shelter.

Transforming Shelter Dogs

More than three million dogs enter shelters each year, and a vast majority of them are dirty and matted. Unfortunately, less than half of these dogs are getting the necessary grooming to help them get adopted.

That’s why Wahl and Greater Good Charities have teamed up to provide shelters nationwide with grooming products to transform dogs and help them find a forever home.

Over the past thirteen years, Wahl’s donation of pet shampoos has helped animal shelters clean up hundreds-of-thousands of dogs and get them ready for adoption.
