Wags & Wiggles Rescue is a non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to reducing overpopulation, abuse and neglect of domestic animals. Wags & Wiggles is run entirely by compassionate like-minded professionals who volunteer their time and resources to help save the lives and then care for these animals. We believe in helping the underdogs and give it all we have.
We are always accepting donations if you wish to help our cause. We are a public benefit 501(c)(3) corporation. We are a foster based rescue based out of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
We had recently lost a dog who was a long-time member of our family. Our other dog needed a companion that was the right match. That’s when we found Christa and her foster, Wiggles. She seemed like just the dog we were looking for. So, we applied and were able to meet Wiggles soon after. We could tell that she was in a very loving home and really needed that love and care to continue in her new home. We’re so glad we found Christa and Wiggles and couldn’t be happier with the whole adoption process.
Several years ago, we saw a dog on Facebook that Christa had posted that was up for adoption. We weren’t really looking for a dog at the time although our family loves dogs. We had lost a dog a few years prior and felt like the timing was right. Christa was willing to let us meet the dog a few weeks before the actual adoption took place. We instantly fell in love! When we finally met Christa to pick up the dog, it was obvious that Christa loved the dog very much and was sad to see him leave. In the process of adopting Stanley, we also became aware that that he had a sister Penny who was also up for adoption. At the time, we were disappointed to see that she had already been spoken for. Fast forward to the day of the adoption, and we learned that Penny was no longer spoken for and was available for adoption. We quickly agreed to adopt her too, and ever since she and her brother play together, fight together as brothers and sisters often do, and they cuddle together every night. Their lives are fuller with each other and our lives our fuller by having both of them in the house. Because of Christa, these dogs spend their days taking walks, playing with each other, and snuggling with their humans at night. We are thankful for Christa’s role in bringing these dogs into our lives!
Christa is an amazing foster mom for pups! She was beyond easy to work with in adopting my Ollie. Once we established I was going to adopt him she was in frequent contact with me with updated pictures and progress until I could take him home. She included me in everything he was going through (vet visits, eating, house training, personality...) After I brought him home I continued to send Christa pictures and stay in contact with her. Almost a year later I decided I wanted Ollie to have a companion and Christa happened to have a puppy who needed a home. Again, once we established I was going to adopt Izzy she kept me updated on her progress until she was old enough to be spayed and come home with me. I’m the meantime Christa invited me to bring Ollie out to meet Izzy and spend some time for the two of them to get to know each other. I am beyond pleased with how easy Christa made the adoption process. She is a great foster mom with a huge heart for pups who need help and who need a home ??
