About Us

Adopting A Friend

In order to adopt one of our wonderful animals we ask that you fill out an application. It is a general application and not an application on a specific animal. There are no wrong answers; we want to match you with an animal that will fit well in your household. Once your application is approved we do a home visit. 

We care about the animals in our care. We want them to be happy in their forever home. We also care about the people we’re placing animals with. Our goal is to make the transition from unwanted to loved easy for the animal and as stress free as possible for the new pet parent.

For an adoption application please email us at wetnoseshappytails@gmail.com

Who We Are

Wet Noses and Happy Tails Rescue is based in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. We are run by volunteers and we place dogs and cats into loving furever homes. 

Our mission is to reduce the number of animals that need to be euthanized in shelters each year. We have applied for our non-profit, we are all volunteers, and completely funded on donations. We are committed to reducing the number of homeless and unwanted animals through education, spay and neuter programs, and the responsible re-homing of homeless and unwanted animals. We rely on our compassionate foster homes to provide for, house, and rehabilitate homeless and unwanted animals. Collaborating with veterinarians and other medical practitioners to provide screening, spay and neuter, vaccinations, and other medical attentions such as surgery and medication. Our board of directors will thoroughly evaluate all prospective adopters to create an optimal match with available animals looking for their new forever homes.

We are always looking for volunteers and foster homes are also always desperately needed. If you can’t foster or volunteer, we can always use donations.
