Safehaven Small Breed Rescue: WAHL Grooming Grant Report

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

Getting mill rescues clean and smelling better

Many of our rescues have never had a proper bath, only a spray-down with a hose, so they are filthy, matted and often have skin sores. The oatmeal shampoo soothed their skin while getting them clean and smelling good for prospective adopters.

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

Zoe was rescued from a puppy mill. She was filthy and matted to the skin. After a good bath and grooming, she was seen by our vet and cleared for her spay and dental. She received one more bath after her stitches were removed and found her forever home three days later. She is only one of many mill rescues who benefited and will benefit from this grant.
