About Us  »        

WAG is an all-volunteer, non-profit (501c3), domestic companion animal rescue organization dedicated to placing homeless dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in permanent, loving, responsible homes.
Active in Southeast Michigan, with primary focus on the Downriver area for the past 21 years, WAG accepts strays and owner give-ups into our adoption program.


Because we do not have a shelter facility, WAG is dependant on select foster care providers to accommodate the needs of homeless animals until permanent placement is found. These very special volunteers are responsible for providing love and attention, as well as transporting the animals in their care to veterinary appointments and adopt-a-pet events. WAG pays for all necessary veterinary care, working directly with several local veterinary clinics. WAG is always in need of additional responsible foster care providers.
When an owner is giving up their own animal for adoption, WAG usually requires that the owner continue to provide shelter and care while we actively work to match the animal with a new, permanent home. Canines are placed on our wish list, which is a highly effective means of matching an animal with a pre-screened adopter. In addition, canine owner give-ups are oftentimes participants of our adopt-a-pet events. Felines are a far greater challenge to find homes for, therefore it is infrequent that a foster home is available for owner give-ups.
