Bishop's Small Dog Rescue, Inc. NFP: WAHL Grooming Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The product, Wahl doggie shampoo, was used for bathing our rescue dogs.
This grant helped us by giving us a good, quality product to use on our very deserving (and sometimes pretty stinky) rescue dogs. The product did a great job at cleaning and deodorizing them and making them much more adoptable.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
This grant really helped out our Toto. He came in as a stray to Union County Animal Control in Southern Illinois and when his time was up. We rescued him and brought him into our shelter and foster-based program. Toto was what I call a “hot mess” when he got to us. He smelled of farm-animal manure along with being VERY matted and dirty. He also ended up having parvo, which we pulled him through. This shampoo made him into a “new” dog! We bathed him several times the first few weeks and this shampoo kept him from getting too dry, but also helped to make him smell and feel better. Toto is now ready for and searching for his furever home for the holidays thanks to the help of your grant. Thank you, Wahl and Petfinder Foundation!
