Mobile Grooming for a Cause Campaign 2023

By: Alyssa Gilbert, Content Creation Specialist at Wag’n Tails Mobile Conversions

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, sponsored and promoted by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Throughout the month we are encouraging groomers to donate grooms at local shelters. We hope that the donated grooms will help those dogs to get adopted faster. From our experience, we’ve found that dogs that look well-manicured are more likely to be adopted than dogs that aren’t as clean and look shaggy. 

Due to the high cost of rapid inflation, shelters are overwhelmed with the amount of dogs being dropped off. These dogs need homes as soon as possible. As groomers, the love and passion to take care of animals is prominent, which is why these dogs need you. They need groomers to give them extra attention and a good groom to help them prepare to be placed in a forever home.  

This opportunity allows groomers to give back to their community and provide a vital service to dogs that likely just need a bath, cut, and nail clipping. Many dogs at the shelter have been through traumatic circumstances that resulted in failure to be taken care of. The love and attention to detail a groomer can give to a shelter dog could change their life forever. 

Getting dogs adopted sooner is a huge incentive to donate grooms to a local shelter. However, to as an added bonus on top of that we’re making a contest out of this and are giving out huge prizes to the top three groomers who groom the most shelter dogs throughout the month of October. Prizes include a gift certificate to Lala’s Shampoo, $1,000 gift certificate to Groomers Choice, and a grand prize of a $10,000 vacation to the destination of your choice. We can’t think of a reason why a mobile groomer wouldn’t want to participate!  

Whether you’re able to groom one dog or dozens we know that your contribution will make a difference! We’re so proud of all our participating mobile groomers for their dedication to this industry and their love of taking care of animals. We couldn’t do this without you!  

Sign-up for the contest is open all the way until the end of October. Sign-up here and email for any questions you may have. Stay tuned on our social media for the winners, happy grooming!
