Humane Society of the Black Hills: WAHL Grooming Grant Report

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

Grooming dogs

We had a quality product to help us groom dogs to make them look better, thereby increasing their chances of adoption. It also helped the dogs feel better!

How many pets did this grant help?

So far we have used the shampoo on seven dogs.

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

Albion is an 8-year-old Pyrenees. She was surrendered to us because her owner was ill and could no longer care for her. When she came into our shelter, her toenails were so long that she was walking on the sides of her feet, her fur was very matted and she had a fatty growth on her neck. We shaved her fur, bathed her and removed the growth on her neck. She has just had the stitches removed from her neck and has moved onto the adoption floor! We believe because she looks so much better and is clean and free of matted fur she will be adopted very soon! Thank you from Albion for this grant!
