Wahl Puts A Fresh Face On Dog Adoption

STERLING, Ill. (March 10, 2018) – According to the Chinese calendar, 2018 is the year of the dog, which makes Wahl’s annual efforts to support shelter dogs even more poetic. In fact, over the past six years the company’s donation of more than $117,000 in products and monetary grants, has helped shelters and rescues nationwide clean up more than 90,000 dogs and get them ready for adoption. “The transformative power of grooming is just amazing.

STERLING, IL. (Aug. 22, 2017) – Sissy came to her rescue so badly matted it was difficult to tell she was a dog. Her ears were matted to the side of her head, her chin was matted to her chest and her four paws were the size of boxing gloves. After a full eight hours of grooming, her true beauty was revealed and she was quickly adopted. Sissy’s dramatic transformation not only got her a second chance at life, but the title of America’s top shelter dog makeover in the 2017 Dirty Dogs Contest (view all the finalists).

America's Top Dogs: 10 Most Amazing Shelter Dog Makeovers

STERLING, ILL. (August 8, 2017) – Mouse was found hiding in the shadows. From the looks of him it was clear most of his 10 years had been very hard, but under the dirt and matted fur was a huge heart ready to give love. Thankfully, after a grooming Mouse quickly found his forever family, and was named America’s top shelter dog makeover in the 2016 Dirty Dogs Contest. His story stands as proof that a good bath can transform a dog’s life in more ways than one. The sad truth, however, is that less than half of the three million dogs entering shelters each year are getting the necessary grooming they need. That’s why Wahl has teamed up with GreaterGood.org to donate funds and grooming supplies to shelters nationwide. The goal: Transform more than 20,000 dogs this year to get them ready for adoption.
