About us

Wags and Whiskers Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all-breed, NO KILL, animal rescue organization, incorporated in August 2015. We are a volunteer-driven group with a number of years of experience with animals and rescue. Our mission is to rescue, foster, rehabilitate and rehome, abandoned, abused, and unwanted animals. 
We rescue animals at risk of euthanasia in shelters, as well as those surrendered by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect.  We are committed to helping the neediest, as well as the readily adoptable.

Once in our care, all animals are spayed or neutered, given any needed vaccinations, and receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment. They are then placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes. We assist dogs in distress without regard to age, breed or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority.‚Äč

We have a comprehensive adoption application process that takes considerable care in making the best possible match for the animal as well as the potential adopter. We feel part of the process is to educate prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a new animal into their homes and lives. We work to achieve the highest success rate possible. We seek to place our animals in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes.  

Wags and Whiskers stands ready to help you find a companion who will thrive in your home. We are here to assist you in every way possible throughout the adoption process and will continue to be a helpful resource not only before but also after you have welcomed your new pet into your life
