About Us

Adopting A Friend

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: http://waggingdog.org/resources/
  • 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.


Who We Are

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.
