Presenting: America's top 10 shelter dog makeovers

(BPT) - Millions of dogs enter shelters each year. Most are dirty and matted, and less than half get the grooming they so desperately need. Sadly, these deserving animals are being perceived as ‘damaged goods’ just because of their appearance. To better their chances at finding a fur-ever family, pet industry leaders Wahl and GreaterGood.org have teamed up to donate funds and grooming supplies to shelters nationwide. The goal this year: transform more than 20,000 dogs so their lovable, adoptable personalities can shine through. Hundreds of these amazing makeovers can be seen in the Dirty Dogs Before & After Photo Gallery — including the following Top 10 Shelter Dog Makeovers of 2019.
