The 12 Spays of Christmas

BeFunky Collage final

To encourage shelter adoptions during the month of December, WAG offered vouchers for a free spay/neuter at Paradox Clinic to adopters of 12 shelter animals. We’re glad to report that 12 lucky pets went to new homes using those vouchers, helping the Walton Co. shelter to have one of their best December adoption months! Great…

This sweet Dachshund mix needed emergency surgery in December. We rescued Cisco from the shelter a few weeks ago after being dumped by his owner and found him to be a kind but quiet boy. But he apparently had an underlying problem – bladder stones and a life-threatening major infection. When the stones caused a…

A New Life

The world is looking up for former WAG adoptable dog Chip, a Lab mix. He was a shy, scared boy when we rescued him – unfortunately he also tested positive for heartworms. He endured several months of treatment for heartworms with painful muscular injections. But Chip responded well to treatment and his personality blossomed in…

Puppy Prevention Program

Too many pups

Spring is breeding season and puppies are soon to follow. Unfortunately, most will be from unplanned litters – the primary cause of pet overpopulation. Fix your critters – end the litters! But what happens when you already have a female dog that is pregnant or has a litter of puppies? Maybe WAG can help. WAG’s…
