Who We Are

Wag-N-Train Dog Rescue & Training, Inc is an all-breed dog rescue located in Central Utah. We are a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation operated exclusively by volunteers. We are committed to reducing the numbers of homeless and unwanted dogs and to reducing the incidents of euthanasia of healthy, adoptable dogs by placing homeless and unwanted dogs into caring, responsible homes.

We rescue dogs from the pound and place them with loving foster homes who care for them and ready them for adoption and for a small fee we will also assist dog owners who need help in placing their own personal dogs.

We are equally committed to educating the public about the enormous benefits of having a well-trained dog, since many people give up their dogs because of behavior problems and/or lack of training.

Adopting a Dog

Adopting one of our dogs is EASY! We do have an application process, and it usually takes us about 24 hours to process an application. You can download a copy of our adoption application at at (click on the "adoption" paw). Our adoption fees vary. Please check the descriptions on each individual dog. Out-of-state adoptions are $30 more, and adopters are responsible for all transportation and related costs. Although long distances can sometimes complicate matters, it does not make adoption impossible. The adoption fees help us defray veterinary costs, spay/neuter, vaccinations, and the care and feeding of rescue dogs. All of our dogs are fixed prior to adoption, when possible. Adjustments to the adoption fee may be made if puppies are not yet old enough to be fixed. Puppies are adopted with the requirement that they be spayed/neutered by the time they are 5-6 months old. Proof of altering must be provided. Contact us and let's see what we can work out. We are willing to work with you!

Obedience Training

Wag-N-Train, Inc. offers reasonably-priced obedience training for the benefit of dogs and their owners. We offer private (one-on-one) training sessions and we also provide group training clinics.

Would you like to have a dog that you can be proud of and who is pleasant to be around? Do these problems sound all too familiar to you: excessive barking; housetraining problems; jumping up on you and your company; dog takes YOU for a walk? We can help!

If you are interested in training for your pet please don't hesitate to contact us. The proceeds we raise from the training sessions directly benefit the rescue dogs in our care and will help us to be able to save more homeless dogs.

How to Place Your Own Dog

As much as we'd like to be able to help everyone place their dogs, we just don't have the resources. All of our dogs are in foster homes, and those homes are reserved for pound dogs in danger of being euthanized. We would like to share with you some resources for how you can place your own dog.
• You could list the dog on Pictures are essential, along with as much descriptive information about temperament, training and personality as possible. Do they do any tricks? House trained? Crate trained? Good with kids, cats, other dogs? It is free and there is a huge audience. I would recommend asking an adoption fee for the dog...even if it's just $50 or something. You get a better home that way rather than just giving them away. Some bad things can happen to "free" dogs. Screen possible adopters carefully and ask for references. We can share our adoption application with you if you like.
• In addition you can post dogs at the following web sites:,, (on the right side for "Utah", click there, then a list comes up for different cities. Provo and Salt Lake get the largest audience, (classifieds),,) Again, remember a picture and as much information about the dog as possible.
• If you are in Sanpete County, or adjoining counties, you could put the dog on the KMTI Tradeo program for in the ad to 835-7301. You can also list the dog on KMTI's website:
• You can place an ad in the Horseshoe Trader. It's very reasonable and reaches about 8,000 homes...from Richfield clear up into the Payson area, and beyond, I believe. Call 835-6271 for rates and deadlines. Remember a picture!
• You could make flyers and put them up around the area. There's a great, easy flyer maker at: Again, a good picture is essential. Post them at grocery stores, post offices, quick stops...anywhere there is lots of foot traffic.
• If you are considering placing your dog for free…please read This can be quite risky for your beloved pet.
• There is also some great information about finding a home for your pet, along with tips on writing ads and taking pictures at
If all else fails, we may be able to help you, depending on our load at the time, but we would need to thoroughly evaluate temperament before making that commitment, we would ask that you keep the dog until placed, that the dog be fixed and up to date with shots, and we do request a $40 donation to help with costs of placement. I hope that this helps a bit.
We wish you the best of luck!
