I just went on our shelter ~the Noah’s Ark Animal Foundation ~ website and saw that a total of 189 dogs from southeast Iowa have been accepted in the Petsmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program. This is really fantastic.
We have so many dogs that are abandoned around here and without the Rescue Waggin’, many of them would still be sitting in the shelter waiting for their forever home. There just are not enough good homes in this area for all the great dogs that, for one reason or another, have found themselves homeless.
The Waggin’ picks up dogs from the shelter once or twice a month and brings them to one of two shelters in WI where the adoption rate is very high. Most of the dogs are adopted within 48 hours. (amazing).
Being accepted into the program has really made a difference for the homeless dogs in our area! Programs like this show what can be accomplished when people work together for a good purpose.
