***Covid-19 Update from Wagging Dog Rescue***
As of 3/20/2020, Wagging Dog Rescue is placing all adoptions on hold until further notice. We hope everyone is staying home and safe, and to that end, we want to keep our team of awesome volunteers home and safe as well. We are unable to conduct home visits and meet-n-greets at this time and these are required as part of our adoption process. Don’t worry! Our amazing Orphans will still be here, waiting for their perfect forever families on the other side of this global pandemic. If you see someone on our websites who catches your eye, please don’t hesitate to reach out and inquire! We can provide info for our available family members and complete as much due diligence as possible while still in quarantine, in preparation for the present dangers to pass and life to resume a semblance of normality. As always, we’re here to support our communities and alumni in any and all ways possible. If you are facing difficult times during this situation and need help, please reach out to us today. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this extraordinary time. Stay safe. Stay home.

About Wagging Dog Rescue
Wagging Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization striving to help dogs survive Southern California’s shelters 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 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.
