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

Lucky Penny entered our program approximately 1-1/2 years ago. She was 15 years old when she was taken in from a very high kill shelter. She has very dry, flaky skin so the oatmeal shampoo was very good for her. Biscuit is a blind and deaf Springer Spaniel. She has been here for a year and does not always watch where she sits or lays. Bathing is very important to keep her clean. Lucy-Lu has been here for over three years after being rescued from a hoarding situation. She was ten years old and severely malnourished. Lucy-Lu was given fluids for over a month and had a severe bladder infection. She was not expected to survive. Lucy-Lu likes to dig in the mud, so the Wahl shampoo was very helpful in her case. All of our dogs including those going to Forever Foster homes are benefiting from a great quality shampoo. Thank you!
