P.A.W.S. Sending Homeless Dogs For Ride Of Their Lives
Every year, our shelter receives more dogs and cats than we can possibly find homes for in our community.
That’s why we’re constantly looking for new spay/neuter strategies to reduce the number of pets coming in, while at the same time developing innovative programs that help us get more pets adopted out. Our goal is to find every adoptable pet a loving home, so we have partnered with the PetSmart Charities® Rescue Waggin’® program to increase the number of adoptable dogs and puppies that find new families.
The Rescue Waggin’ program is a unique shelter transport program that moves adoptable dogs from shelters with high areas of pet overpopulation to shelters where adoptable dogs are more in demand. By networking with animal shelters across the nation, we can transport pets to other shelters where they is more adoption space and more opportunities for each of them to find a new home.
Some shelters around the country have nearly eliminated the overpopulation problem in their communities. Until we achieve that goal in our community, the Rescue Waggin’ vehicle will provide our shelter with an opportunity to help our adoptable homeless dogs and puppies find a loving home, wherever those homes may be.
PetSmart Charities, Inc. is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that saves the lives of homeless pets. More than 400,000 dogs and cats find homes each year through our adoption program in all PetSmart® stores and our sponsored adoption events. PetSmart Charities grants more money to directly help pets in need than any other animal welfare group in North America. The focus is on funding spay/neuter programs that help communities solve pet overpopulation. PetSmart Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization, separate from PetSmart, Inc.
