Uplifting Video – A Dog Rescue Program with Wheels



At Wagbrag we can’t stress enough how much we support rescuing and adopting.  So when we saw this uplifting video of the Rescue Waggin’ ® and how they were helping to save lives – we just had to share.

While some community animal shelters are busting at the seams with homeless pets, other communities have shelters with a waiting list of folks who are anxious to adopt a dog or cat and provide them with a loving forever home.  Rescue Waggin’ ® is a PetSmart charty that provides transportation for dogs which are in overcrowded animal shelters and relocates them to adoption organizations where these dogs are quickly adopted – usually finding a home in a matter of a couple of days.  They have helped save over 60,000 dogs since the program started in 2004 – their website claims.

If you are needing a feel-good story, then this is the video for you!
