Hi! I am Opie. Won't you please, please consider adding me as a member of your family. I have been in foster care for over 3 years now:-(. I would have loved to have my forever home by fall, but that didn't happen yet! I would really like a four legged friend(s) and a big fenced yard to play in. I am a very friendly and happy dog. I would do great in an active home with older children and other dogs. I love to play so would defintely do best in a home with at least one other dog. I can be seen at our regular adoption events held at the Petco located at 8644 East 96th Street in Fishers, or call for a special appointment.
Our next adoption event is being held at the PETCO located at 8644 E.96th Street in Fishers on Saturday, May 25th, 2013, from 10:00 AM, until 2:00 PM. NOTE: Check out our cute puppies, they're going fast!. We need more volunteers for our adoption events to help handle and walk the dogs! Please e-mail us for more information on volunteering.
HOW TO VISIT AN ADOPTABLE PET:
We do not have a Shelter, therefore most of the pets who are available for adoption are kept in foster homes. Although this can sometimes make it difficult for you to visit with pets that you are interested in adopting, it is actually better on the animals, as the shelter environment can be very stressful. Not having a shelter, limits the number of animals that we can take in. If you are unable to visit our regularly scheduled adoption events, please e-mail us at email@example.com with the pet(s) that you are interested in adopting. If you do not have access to e-mail please call us at 317.335.7354, however please note that this line is answered by volunteers and you may not always get a quick response.

OUR ADOPTION PROCESS:
Wag's works primarily with dogs and puppies. Wag's requires you to complete an application (provided upon request) for review. An initial interview followed by a home visit is required prior to finalizing any adoptions. All pets have been vet and temperament checked in addition to having all shots, spayed and neutered dependent upon age of the animal. Additionally, an agreement will be signed agreeing to alter the pet, and provide any additional vaccinations by the recommended date. If the pet is not altered, or required vaccinations have not been obtained, the pet can be removed from your home and returned to Wag's without prejudice.
Wag's is looking for the best possible homes for these pets, as most have come from neglected or abusive situations. Therefore, Wags's reserves the right to deny an adoption, for any reason, if they are not completely confident that it is the perfect situation for the pet.
We are happy to provide a happy, caring temporary environment for your soon to be new pet and family member!
COME VISIT US!
Wag's does not currently have a public shelter, but pet's can be seen by appointment, or at Petco in Fisher's on scheduled weekends. .
