At WAGS, one of our mantras is: “Adopt, don’t buy.” Adoption is the humane and compassionate choice for your family. Adoption is “the choice” for families seeking to end the senseless cycle of violence behind the puppy breeding industry.

It’s not complicated! There are millions of animals looking for forever-homes. Without your help, these animals may be senselessly euthanized. If you love animals, become part of the solution–not the problem.

As with all things that are important, responsible pet selection and ownership begins with education. Are you prepared to bust your myths?

Please print PDF application or fill one out on our site and bring it in to WAGS with you if interested in adoption.
