About WAG Animal Rescue

WAG Animal Rescue 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.


We have been helping animals throughout Michigan since 1988. WAG accepts animals from shelters and owner surrenders into our adoption program.

How We Operate

Because we do not have a shelter facility, WAG is dependent 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.

Our Mission

Our mission is to further the cause of animals and educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering. Our members believe in the importance of life, human and animal alike.

Our Goals

To find permanent, loving homes for adoptable animals, whether they are rescued from animal shelters or surrendered by their owners; To assist in the education of the public about the care needed by companion animals and the benefits to humans of sharing their life with a companion animal; To help educate the public about the benefits (both to animal and the public) of spaying and neutering companion animals.
