We are Wags and Wishes a small organization working hard to grant the wishes of animals, rescue organizations and families across the Delmarva area. Wags & Wishes is run by a small group of individuals who previously and continue to work with local humane societies by fostering, and getting animals noticed within the community.
Wags & Wishes Animal rescues mission is to work with Animal Control and shelters in the Delmarva area. We will take adoptable animals that have been abandoned/without owners, and we will have them health checked, spayed or neutered and find them homes.
What We Do
As our mission states we help local shelters and Animal Control organizations reduce the number of animals being cared for by their organizations. By doing this we reduce the number of animals euthanized in our area. Wags & Wishes helps socialize animals within the foster environment. We make sure our animals are healthy and prepared to head off to their forever homes.
Please download an application at our website and make sure you let us know what animal you want to apply to adopt! Our adoption fee is $125.00 for adult dogs, $150 for puppies. The difference in fees accounts for the heightened cost of veterinary care for our younger puppies..When reviewing your application we are looking for the following:
For people who currently own, or have previously owned pets; your animals should be spayed/neutered and receive regular vetrinary care. We will contact your current vetrinarian to confirm this.
For those who do not own, and have not previously owned a pet: We will request personal references in order to determine your suitability as a pet owner.
For all: if you rent you must have permission from your landlord to have a pet on the premises. We will contact your landlord to confirm this.
These measures are taken to ensure our animals are going to a home where they will be well cared for. Although our animals are already spayed or neutered we require that all animal members of your household are as well. This is because we have seen firsthand the results of animal overpopulation and must do our best to stop it.
All though we do not currently have a facility we do make trips out into the community to give everyone a chance to see our wonderful dogs up close. Every other Saturday from 11AM-1PM we visit the Salisbury, MD Petsmart located at 105 E Northpoint Blvd Salisbury, MD 21804.
If you would like to make sure we're going to bring a specific dog please email or call us at the contact information below. Please call to determine if we will be at Petsmart that weekend.
