Who We Are

The Norman P. Wiggle Home for Wayward Dogs is a private, non-profit organization founded by Gretchen and Brett Colby. Norman P. Wiggle is a smooth black and tan dachshund the Colby's rescued from a pet store where he had been dropped and stepped on by customers who were allowed to mishandle the puppies. Norm inspired the Colby's, their family, and friends to do what they can to help animals in need, educate people about the importance of spaying and neutering, and eventually put an end to the euthanasia of healthy animals in animal shelters. The Home is operated through a network of foster homes.

Adopting a friend

Adopting a dog, cat, or other type of pet is one of the most fun and rewarding experiences you could ever have, however, it is a big commitment! It is important to think the decision over very carefully, keeping in mind that adopting a pet is a 10 to 20 year commitment. Our adoption process emphasizes this commitment, and we try to slow things down a bit so that potential adopters have time to be sure they are ready for a new pet. Our adoptions take place in a three step process: 1) An adopter makes arrangements to visit the pet he/she thinks they would like to adopt 2) Adopter fills out an application, which includes providing references 3) We do a home inspection. If an application is approved, the adoption fee is $95 (but may vary depending on the dog).
