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.
