Almost Home Animal Rescue of Rutherford County: WAHL Grooming Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Product was used and continues to be used for the dogs in the care of our foster-based rescue program.
Since many of our dogs come from shelters or straight from the streets, they are in need of immediate baths. As they make progress with a regular, high-quality diet, they continue to need regular baths to help the condition of their skin and coat. We appreciate the support tremendously!

Annie came to Almost Home as an emaciated stray. She was immediately taken to a vet, where she received medication for a fungal skin infection, and also had pellets from being wounded by a shotgun blast removed from directly under her skin. The next day, she returned to an emergency vet, suffering from the dreaded condition of bloat. After a successful and expensive bloat surgery, she returned to our care. It was another 14 days before we were able to fully bathe her, so the Wahl Pet Deodorizer and Odor Neutralizer came in handy. A full two weeks after she first came into our care, she FINALLY received her first bath, removing not only the grime from having lived on the streets, but also the distinct smell of a hospitalized pet, as well as a significant amount of her old, unhealthy coat that she was shedding in copious amounts due to being dewormed and now on a high-quality diet. She is a different dog from top to bottom now!
