Haven Humane Society: WAHL Grooming Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The Wahl shampoo was used to bathe shelter dogs and kittens.

People often donate used grooming supplies to us and many times we have to throw them away because of the quality or age of the products. The Wahl shampoo was a nice gift to our groomers for our shelter animals because it is good quality, smells good, and is from a reputable source.

How many pets did this grant help?

It will take us quit a while to use all the product since our volunteer groomers come in only once a week. But I am figuring we will bathe around 200 dogs and two dozen flea-infested kittens with this grant.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

We have 25 Sheperdoodles that are in protective custody. They were seized in a neglect case and have been in our shelter for many months. They are unsocialized and not housetrained. Our volunteer groomers come in each Thursday. It takes them eight hours to clip and bathe two of these large furry dogs. They have been at this for months and groomed the last of the 25 dogs just last week. When the Wahl shampoo arrived, the groomers started using it on these and other dogs. They love the way it smells.
