The 2022 Wagging Dog Rescue Calendar is coming, and it’s something special!

Oh boy do we have something fun and special for this year’s Calendar! First of all, we are turning the BIG 1-0 this year! Second, we made 2 different calendars! One to commemorate 10 years of rescue, and one to show off our love of Pit Bulls! Visit our online shop to order a couple for yourself, and another for an animal lover in your life!

We are ALWAYS looking for passionate people to join the Wagging Dog Rescue Team! Contact us to learn more about our volunteer opportunities. It takes a bunch of dedicated people to keep a small, busy dog and cat rescue running. Some volunteer work can even be done remotely.


Foster a Dog

Our wonderful foster volunteers are the backbone of our organization. If you’re willing to open your heart and home to a deserving dog or cat in need of some love, this is the thing for you!



About Wagging Dog Rescue

Wagging Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization striving to help dogs and cats survive the shelters of Southern California and Denver, CO and find the perfect forever family. We are an all volunteer group of passionate animal advocates, owners and rescuers dedicated to improving animal welfare and restoring the unwanted family pet to his rightful place in a responsible home. All of our adoptable dogs and cats are in a private foster home with a loving caregiver who guides them through their transition from a stressful past to a permanent and well-deserved future. We promote responsible pet ownership, a leadership lifestyle, spay and neuter… and most of all, ADOPTION.
