Otis, sweet and missing a family

Otis, sweet and missing a family

WH_slider-foster-OtisOtis was saved from a high-kill shelter in Chicago, IL just as his time was up. Just a mere 9-months old when Wagging Hearts discovered his dire plight and pulled him to safety. Otis was among the hundreds tucked away behind ‘Rescue-Only’ doors. Unavailable to the public unless a rescue organization became involved in time to save their life. Hours mean the difference between life and death. Otis was saved not only from the clock but also found to be very ill upon closer examination. He was rushed to the vet with pneumonia where he was monitored 24-hours a day while being nursed back to health. Otis is currently healed and his spirit continues to blossom.

Otis is a pittie mix who is now healthy and growing by leaps and bounds at a young age of 11-months. A heart filled with sweetness. Great with other dogs and ready to be a part of a solid forever family. Otis was being fostered (with another Wagging Heart rescue pittie) by a wonderful family who was relocated out-of-state. So once more Otis will need another place to rest his head. His short life has been a series of transitions and his young puppy heart wants yearns for someone to love. And for once in his life…to find someone to love him unconditionally, consistently and diligently. Fill out an application for Otis if he strikes your fancy and offer to foster, foster-to-adopt, or maybe just jump right into forever love and adopt Otis right away. He is patiently waiting for someone to see just how special he is, don’t make Otis wait any longer. Act now and take him into your home today!!

Calling All Fosters …


Wagging Hearts realizes that each and every foster home is a lifeline for our rescues. We would not be able to save the numbers of animals that connect with a forever home without our foster’s time, dedication, care and love. A rescue animal has usually been through quite a journey and may need some decompression and gentle love. Remember that companion animals develop deep and meaningful bonds with their families and they can become traumatized or despondent when they find themselves lost or abandoned. Fast forward to these lives adrift at a shelter filled with stress, noise, fear and usually death. This environment can temporarily affect our rescue animals and some may require a little extra TLC to shine brightly once more. That is where our foster homes becomes a lifeline as joy and happiness flood back into each animals heart and bodies. It is an amazing sight to watch how quickly an animal can rebound when shown kindness and a gentle touch. A foster makes an incredible difference in the life of each rescue. Each foster home is an extension of Wagging Hearts and the backbone which allows us to make such a difference in as many lives as we touch. We hope that you may want to be a part of our community and begin to share in the incredible experience of fostering.
