Mission

Wags 2 Wishes is a licensed , 501(C)3 for profit ALL BREED Animal Rescue that started in 2013. Located in Plainfield Illinois our mission is to rescue abused, sick, abandoned and forgotten animals facing euthanasia due to over crowding or being too medically intense for the current facility/owner and provide a loving and secure transition in our program. It is said you can't save them all, but we are going to try. At Wags 2 Wishes we pride ourselves on taking in some of the worst medically intense or neglect cases.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to increase volunteers and better educate the community about adoption.

Promoting and providing information and low cost solutions to spay - neutering programs. Also by educating the public on responsible pet ownership

By working with other organizations we are able to direct people on where to go. However grants and additional funding would allow us an opportunity to be more involved and able to do more as an organization

In the past four years Wags 2 Wishes was able to grow from a Foster Home based rescue in which we rescued under 100 animals yearly into our now 2,000 square feet Rescue Facility which allows more exposure and adoptability for the animals in our care.

Our goal is to expand more and be able to include more education on responsible pet ownership and low cost veterinary care to the community
