Wahl and Greater Good Charities, a global nonprofit, have partnered again for the 11th annual Dirty Dogs Contest.

Wahl donated grooming supplies to rescues and shelters nationwide, and they in turn shared amazing Before and After grooming photos — including the Top 10 Shelter Dog Makeovers of 2022.

Flynn was found in a box. He was so matted rescuers could hardly tell his head from his tail. He also had a broken leg, but fortunately, he recovered and was adopted by a shelter volunteer.

For the last 11 years, Wahl’s donation of pet grooming supplies has helped transform hundreds of thousands of dogs and get them ready for adoption. This year, more than 200 makeovers were submitted into the Dirty Dogs Contest, and 10 were chosen as finalists. Visitors to the contest page can see what each dog looked like when they arrived at the shelter or rescue, and how they transformed once they were groomed. They can also learn more about the dogs’ backgrounds and share their favorites on social media.

Until midnight, Oct. 28, 2022, public votes will decide the three top dogs. The organizations affiliated with these dogs will receive a total of $15,000 in monetary grants to further support their efforts — $10,000 will go to the first-place winner!

Visit to see amazing makeovers and vote for your favorite.
