Our Mission

Wagging Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization striving to help as many dogs as possible get through 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, firm leadership, spay and neuter...  and most of all, ADOPTION

Adoption Policy

If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting one of our available Wagging Dogs, our adoption procedure includes:

completed application - available for download here:
phone interview
home visit
adoption donation
signed agreement

If you have other pets in your home, we will manage doggie introductions to ensure that everyone starts things off on the right paw.  Our Wagging Dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, house broken and in most cases crate trained.  Post adoption support is available for the life of your Wagging Dog.


All of our Wagging Dogs are in private foster homes throughout Southern California. In order to meet any of our available best friends, please submit an Adoption Application - available for download here: - or you can email us at ADOPTIONS@WAG
