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.
Dirty Dogs Contest
Arlo was found by the side of a country highway. His rescuers didn’t know much about his life, but at about 10 years old, it was clear from his appearance he’d had a long rough road. Once safe, he was quickly groomed to remove layers of filth and pounds of painful matted fur. Arlo’s transformation was so dramatic, not only did it help him get a new “leash” on life, but it earned him the title of America’s top shelter dog makeover in the eighth annual Dirty Dogs Contest. The yearly effort demonstrates the power of grooming, and awards the top three dog makeovers with grant money for their local shelters.
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 GreaterGood.org have teamed up to provide shelters nationwide with grooming products to transform dogs and help them find a forever home.
Over the past eight years, Wahl’s donation of pet shampoos has helped animal shelters clean up 130,000 dogs and get them ready for adoption.
