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

We had a small terrier breed dog that came in matted and had to be shaved to the skin to remove the mats. The oatmeal shampoo kept him from itching and the hair seemed to grow back quicker. He was kept very comfortable with numerous shampoos. When he left his hair had grown back; it was soft and fluffy and he was one great looking dog. I regret I don’t have pictures but sometimes the dogs don’t get showcased at this shelter the way they should.
