WIMBERLEY ADOPTION GROUP AND RESCUE CORPORATION

Give A Rescued Dog a Good Home . . . Yours!

aka WAG Rescue   |   Wimberley, TX   |  www.wimberleywagrescue.org

Mission

The mission of WAG Rescue is to help alleviate overcrowding in Central Texas shelters and provide adoption services to the community. WAG Rescue provides medical care for these animals and places them in a nurturing environment where they receive training and learn socialization skills until they are ready to be adopted into loving, permanent homes. WAG Rescue promotes the compassionate treatment of all animals and seeks to educate the public about responsible pet ownership and advocates spay/neutering of pets in order to prevent overpopulation and much animal suffering.

Notes from the nonprofit

Our goal is to build or acquire a Dog Adoption/Resource facility in the Wimberley area. We will always want to keep the foster component to meet the social and emotional needs of the dogs and puppies in our care. We have so many animals coming into our system that require quarantine time or there are no foster homes available. A facility would offer us a place to temporarily house dogs and puppies and provide a central location where people can come to adopt an animal.

Dog Vet Services, Boarding/Foster Care, Supplies & Training

All dogs and puppies entering into the WAG Rescue system are provided with a thorough vet exam, they receive vaccinations and they are tested for heart worms. Our dogs either go into a foster home or they are boarded at our refuge in Driftwood. We provide all the food and supplies, as well as training by certified dog trainers and rehabilitation specialists.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Incoming dogs that are unclaimed are tested for heartworms. If they test positively, we treat the dog and let them recover fully before they are put up for adoption

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

The emergency and specialty surgery program is for the purpose of providing medical care for unclaimed dogs and puppies in need. Specialty surgeries are provided for dogs with treatable conditions, but need the surgery in order to be more adoptable and pain free.

Charting impact

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

To rescue, care for and adopt out as many unclaimed, abandoned ,surrendered and shelter dogs and puppies in our area as possible.

To offer dog spay/neuter vouchers through Emancipet for people in the community who need financial assistance or those who might not otherwise be inclined to have their pet altered.

To build a permanent facility to temporarily house our dogs while keeping the foster component in place.

To educate the public about the humane treatment and care of all animals and to encourage the spay/neuter of all pets.

To act as a lost and found service for all animals in our area via the WAG Rescue Facebook, Instagram, etc.

We continue to take in unclaimed dogs and puppies, regardless of their age or condition, and provide them with the medical care, socialization and training that they need in order be adoptable. We also pull dogs and puppies from area shelters that are at risk of euthanasia. We provide dog spay/neuter vouchers through Emancipet to people in the community who need assistance getting this procedure for their pet. We act as a resource for lost and found animals

We are capable of caring for between 40 and 45 dogs and puppies at any one time.

This includes heart worm positive dogs that will be in our system for several months undergoing treatment and recovery and dogs requiring specialty surgeries.

Since our inception in June 2009, we have rescued, cared for and adopted out nearly 1,900 dogs and puppies. Additionally, we have treated over 90 dogs for heartworms and provided emergency care and specialty surgeries for unclaimed dogs and puppies.

We have helped return countless animals to their owners via our website and social media.

It is our goal to build a modest, permanent facility on our 6 acre site in Driftwood where we can house dogs that are not in foster care and have a quarantine area that can be readily sanitized. We need indoor facilities particularly during inclement weather. Currently, we have 16, 10' x 10' covered outdoor kennels on the property built by our volunteers. Extreme heat, cold and thunderstorms are difficult conditions to operate under, not only for the dogs, but also for our volunteers.

We currently need a whole house back-up generator.
