An estimated 8 million animals enter shelters each year, and the vast majority of them are dirty and matted. Unfortunately, less than half of these dogs are getting the necessary grooming to help them get adopted. Enter the Dirty Dogs Contest…
We’ve once again teamed up our client Wahl with the Greater Good Foundation to provide shelters nationwide with grooming products to transform shelter dogs and help them find a forever home. Now in its 5th year, the Dirty Dogs Contest and donation of Wahl’s all-natural pet shampoo have helped shelters clean up more than 70,000 dogs and get them ready for adoption.
Hundreds of these amazing makeovers have been captured through photos in the Dirty Dogs Before & After Gallery. What makes this gallery unique is that visitors can see what each dog looked like as they arrived at the shelter, and after they were cleaned up. Visitors can also search for adoptable dogs in their area, learn more about their stories and share them on social media.
To promote the gallery and help get the dogs adopted, 10 of the most dramatic transformations from the gallery have been selected to participate in the fifth annual Dirty Dogs Contest. Public votes will determine the top three winners. The animal shelters or rescue groups affiliated with these transformations will receive monetary grants to further support their efforts. First place takes home $5,000, second place receives $2,000 and third place earns $1,000.
The Dirty Dogs Contest runs from July 19 - August 1, 2016. To see these amazing makeovers and cast your vote for the best one, visit the Wahl Pets Facebook Page. Winners will be announced August 2, 2016.
