Thank you for visiting the Wags and Walks: Saving Pets Team Page!
Wags & Walks is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to getting at-risk dogs -- euthanized for no reason other than lack of space -- out of shelters and providing them with medical care, food, shelter and love. We match the dogs we save with perfectly suited families, “Bringing Happiness Home.” ®
Our New Adoption Center:
Since 2011, Wags & Walks has operated primarily as a foster-based rescue serving some of Los Angeles’ neediest dogs. We are one of the fastest growing dog rescue organizations in Los Angeles with over 2,300 dogs rescued, and we are finally ready to take the next step and expand our rescue efforts by opening an Adoption Center. We are extremely excited for this opportunity to rescue and adopt out more dogs than ever… but we need your help!
Every year tens of thousands of healthy and friendly pets are killed in Los Angeles animal shelters simply because they don't have a home. Rarely is it any fault of the dog's, yet shelter dogs endure the unfair and unshakeable stigma that they are damaged goods. As a result, these dogs are put to sleep. We want to change that!
Opening an Adoption Center will allow us to:
- Increase the number of adoptions;
- Increase the number of dogs we rescue from other shelters;
- Expand awareness about unnecessary dog euthanasia;
- Reduce euthanasia numbers in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles needs and deserves a safe and friendly space for all its amazing, forgotten dogs, and we are humbled to be able to provide that. With your help, we can open up a new Adoption Center very soon and start making a difference right away!
