Wags Rescue & Referral is a small group of volunteers from Bucks County, Philadelphia and Montgomery County, PA that started because they wanted to help dogs affected by Hurricane Katrina by placing them in loving and safe homes. Although Hurricane Katrina prompted a group of people such as ourselves to reach out and help, there are still many other natural disasters that continue to give us a reason to keep going and rescue animals. Wags continues to work with a shelter down south to find loving families for their dogs.
Wags saves dogs from gassing shelters in the south and bring them to foster homes in Pennsylvania until we can find them a forever family. To do this, the dogs first spend time with fosters in their home states until they are brought up to date on shots and receive veterinary certification to come to Pennsylvania. Once in PA, they stay with their foster families. To help get these doges adopted, we hold adoption events almost every week. The events are open to the public and there are always lots of dogs to see. We also use Petfinder and Adopt a Pet to advertise our dogs online. We also maintain our website to help keep people up to date on events and offer information about Wags, adopting, fostering, and more.
