Delaware County SPCA: WAHL Grooming Grant Report

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

The Wahl shampoo was used to bathe our adoptable dogs.

The Wahl shampoo allowed us to bathe our adoptable dogs before they were put up for adoption. Having clean and fresh-smelling dogs at an animal adoption center is extremely important so that potential adopters are not turned off from interacting with the dogs because of the smell. The grant helped place more animals into their forever homes. During the month of November, we had a record-breaking adoption month with 404 adoptions. We used the Wahl shampoo throughout the month of November.

How many pets did this grant help?

Over 100

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

The shampoo specifically helped a dog named Diggy who was very matted and dirty when he first came in. We used the shampoo on him and put him into a foster home to be placed up for adoption. He looked and smelled so much better after his bath. Thank you for choosing us to be the recipient of this grant.
