Waggytail Rescue focuses on finding permanent placement for animals in urgent circumstances, saving dogs from imminent euthanasia at over-crowded local shelters, West Coast and South East kill shelters.
Founded in 2004, Waggytail Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has rescued over 5000 abandoned dogs and even a few cats and kittens.
Dogs entering the LA County shelter system are housed in aging facilities that are impossible to clean and maintain. Animals are routinely euthanized due to lack of space and funding to address even minor medical conditions, rates are sky high.
As a No Kill Los Angeles Coalition Partner, Waggytail Rescue is doing all they can to rescue and rehome California's At Risk small dogs. Just like in NYC, they are rescuing and placing them in loving foster homes, treating medical conditions, and rehabilitating scared and confused pups to get them ready for their second start in life!
All of their dogs are available for adoption in Los Angeles until they are transported to NYC where demand for small, apartment sized dogs is high. Unlike other bicoastal rescue groups, they are exclusively flying dogs in cabin with volunteer chaperones. They provide the carrier & reimburse the dog's ticket!
