The Dirty Dogs Contest showcases neglected rescue dogs, and relies on your votes to decide on the most jaw-dropping or inspiring transformation. You have until Monday, August 1st to weigh in! Sponsored by grooming products company Wahl and the Greater Good, this year marks the fifth annual contest. 10 finalists have been selected to participate. Go to the contest Facebook page to cast your vote—the top three winning shelters will receive $1000, $2000, and $5000 grants.
About half of dogs that enter shelters haven’t received the grooming they need. With donated grooming supplies, this project helps support shelters to transform dogs for a healthier, more comfortable existence. Plus, the attention helps get these lonely dogs adopted.
In fact, 9 out of these 10 finalists now have loving forever homes.
See some of the heartbreaking before-and-after photos below, then vote to support the shelters that made this possible! Voting ends August 1, 2016. You can find these dogs’ stories at the voting link, as well.
