As the end of this year and the beginning of the next one comes near, one can’t help but think about new beginnings. For some, though, a fresh start isn’t a list of resolutions but rather a whole new life- and that’s precisely what this adorable calendar represents. Pet industry leaders Wahl and GreaterGood.org created a rescue-themed 2019 calendar that’s not only heartwarming but helps raise much-needed funds for furballs in need.

Titled ‘Bow to Wow: Amazing Shelter Dog Makeovers,’ the calendar will feature 12 amazing transformation stories, each for one month in the year. The before photo shows the state of the pooch at the moment of their rescue, followed by their new look after a grooming session. The pictures are a part of the companies’ annual Dirty Dogs campaign, and they perfectly showcase the amazing power a little grooming can have.

Unfortunately, most of the dogs that end up in shelters are dirty and matted, and there’s not always enough resources and manpower to help transform all of the pooches into the best versions of themselves. Thanks to donations of Wahl’s pet shampoos, since 2012 pet shelters nationwide have been able to transform more than 100,000 dogs.

Naturally, after getting a bath and a trim, the majority of these dogs ended up being adopted, which is the goal for every single rescue. In an effort to help even more pooches get a furever family of their own, Wahl will donate $5 for every calendar sold to GreaterGood.org, a charity that distributes cash grants to animal rescues across the country.

In addition to featuring the makeovers and heartwarming stories of the participants in the Dirty Dog contest, this calendar will include significant pet holidays. Ideal if you want to make sure you know when to celebrate National Hug Your Dog Day or Dress Up Your Pet Day, for instance!

The ‘Bow to Wow: Amazing Shelter Dog Makeovers’ calendar can be ordered online at $9.99. Grab yours and help a pooch in need- and get to enjoy seeing these amazing transformations whole year long!
