Join Us at an Upcoming Event! We look forward to introducing you to the rescues that have been saved and who are now looking for permanent, forever homes filled with furever love. Each life unique, each life worth meeting to see if a life-altering connection can be made. We are eager for you to meet all the reasons we advocate for ‘adopting instead of shopping at puppy stores/shops’. Our phenomenal companion pets make many guest appearances to show you just how adorable and eager each one is to settle into their forever lives wrapped in furever love. Check out one of our up-and-coming events and consider filling out an adoption or foster application ahead of time. Perhaps its time for you to start a Volunteer opportunity with us? Whatever the reason, head on out and join us if but for one, short moment in your day.

You may be surprised at what can come from a few short moments of cuddles, kisses and laughter. We know you will be smiling by the time you leave.



Adoption Events: Want to meet an adorable adoptable in person at one our adoption event? Feel like volunteering to help care for our animals during adoption events which are crucial for providing the necessary exposure to connect our adoptables with forever love. We enjoy meeting the many Wagging Hearts supporters that come out to provide cuddles and love with the hope of making a love connection. Take a look at the up-and-coming monthly National Adoption Events for 2017. Watch for updates as we are currently expanding our adoption events into new areas to showcase our adorable hearts looking for their forever homes. Stay tuned for additional details as new locations are added. Please email if you have any questions regarding events or email if you would like to assist with volunteering at events.
