Wags Video of the Week
Meet Oreo. This girl wasn't always as happy as she looks in this picture. In fact, just three days ago she was in the shelter moments from being euthanized while her litter of 4 beautiful, nursing, puppies were taken from her. This family was dropped at a high kill shelter in Eastern North Carolina and left for dead. Within the space of three hours, Oreo's adorable puppies were all adopted and she was left there mourning. Shelter staff said that she cried for hours looking for her puppies. Wags rushed to the rescue with a volunteer driving hours to get her to safety before her time had come. Oreo left the shelter dripping with milk for her puppies.
She was taken directly to the vet by her new foster and was found to be not only covered in flea dirt and several pounds underweight but also heartworm-positive and having a cracked molar. At only about 4 years old, this basset/corgi/springer spaniel (we think) girl has had enough heartache for a lifetime already. We at Wags want to make sure the rest of her life is completely different from her first years. She's been spayed and fed and had her tooth extracted but the last hurdle to getting her that fantastic home is to get her heartworm treated. This will cost Wags over $500. We think she is worth that and a lot more. Do you? Please, please help us to help Oreo. Any donation toward getting this beautiful girl back on her feet and heading toward a truly loved and happy life on those short, out-turned legs would be greatly appreciated.
Boy Meets Girl. Girl Can't Live Without Boy!
This story needs a happy ending. Clyde is a 6 year old boxer/lab mix and Bonnie is his best friend. Bonnie is a 2 year old Pit mix that cannot live without Clyde. He is like her security blanket and she needs him around. This odd couple was found in a parking lot where they willingly jumped into their rescuer's getaway car and found their way to Wags Rescue.
Wags will not consider breaking up this pair and is looking to home them together. Bonnie is somewhat dog selective and a home where they were the only pets would be preferable. They are currently in a foster family with small children and love them and all people.
The Wags Angel Fund has agreed to cover the adoption fee for Clyde if an adopter decides to adopt them both together. This pair of super friendly, sweet dogs would warm up any household. So if you are considering completing your family with two new dogs, keep Bonnie and Clyde in mind and tell a friend. These two would love the security that a forever home would give them.

Meet Tiger. Yes, he is an unusual looking beast with his stripy fur and floppy ears but he has a heart of gold and a fun-filled personality. This boy was left at a high kill shelter and was 15 minutes away from euthanization when we were lucky enough to find a foster and rush to get him out. Tiger was immediately a happy, sweet and loving pup. We think he's about 4 years old and heaven knows what those 4 years were like for him. Whatever they were like, we don't think he should end up euthanized in a shelter alone and scared! Tiger is neutered and vetted and ready for his new life EXCEPT he got the dreaded diagnosis of HEARTWORM!
This is another beautiful dog that was not given enough care to get the monthly preventative to keep him from getting this deadly disease. Weighing in around 50 pounds, he gets along great with other dogs including his foster's little Chihuahuas and is sweet and gentle! Please help us to help him get healthy so he can move up north with that gorgeous brindle coat to keep him warm and cuddle and play with a loving family! This boy with a heart of gold deserves that - at least we think he does! His heartworm treatment and medical care will cost over $500! Any little donation helps us to help him and others like him! Thank you!
Please Sponsor a Heartworm-Positive Dog.
Heartworm is a deadly disease that devastates a dog's internal organs before finally killing the dog. The disease can be treated and is absolutely necessary to save the life of the dog.
Wags has several dogs that are in desperate need of heartworm treatment. In addition to the high cost of heartworm treatment, the cost of food and routine medical care while the dog is undergoing treatment can become quite high.
Wags is asking for people to sponsor one of our heartworm-positive dogs. We are asking for a commitment to a $9.95 monthly donation to sponsor a heartworm-positive dog. Once you become a sponsor, you will receive an email from your pet's foster with the latest news about your pet. You will continue to receive monthly updates as long as you continue to sponsor the dog or until they find a forever home.
If you cannot make a monthly commitment, we welcome one time donations that will be put towards the dog of your choice.
