    Our pet food pantry has fed hundreds of local needy pets.

    Low-income spay/neuter subsidies to hundreds of Walton County families.

Why We’re Here

Do you love animals? Are you wanting to make a difference? You’ve come to the right place.<br /><br />We stay busy, but it’s important to remember – WAG is a community-supported organization. The reason we can rescue animals, offer programs like subsidized spay/neuter, Ani-Meals on Wheels or others helping pets and their owners, is because…

More Stuff

Boy, this heat makes me sluggish. But it’s time to update a few things.<br /><br />On August 16 WAG will be at Between Fest, or whatever they’re calling the city’s anniversary celebration. We’re having a pet Fun Show, so get your pet’s best duds out and dress them for the event.*<br /><br />(* Note -I…

Adoption time!

Gotta remind everybody about our adoption this Saturday, July 12, at Boss Brothers Country Store on Highway 78 in Loganville. Come see the dogs and kitties rescued from the shelter, spayed and neutered, and all needing loving homes. The fun starts at 11 am.<br /><br /><br />’Til later,<br /><br />Buddy

Tail Waggin’ Thanks

Where have my manners gone? I’ve been lax in publicly thanking our most recent contributors. A big Tail Wag to Jayne Rogers, Teresa Pruitt, Robert and Nell Mitchell, Steve and Susan Brown, Alex and Diane Kliros, John and Sue Ruckdeschel, Edwin and Carolee McKay, Julie Petty and Mark Mobley, Jane Pannell and Gary Coker. Without…

Bad Dog

We love snacks, but not everything humans eat is safe for dogs. We’ve heard about chocolate, but here’s a little known dangerous product.<br /><br />Xylitol is a common sugar substitute contained in products like gum, candy, breath mints, toothpaste, mouthwash and other products. It’s harmless to humans, but very toxic to dogs. Dogs ingesting products…

Uncle Sam Speaks…finally!

<div>This little tidbit may not be appreciated by anyone lacking the experience of having called, written, waited, called again, cursed a little, waited and called many many more times to the IRS. Although our experience is limited, it does seem that the IRS is significantly more responsive when they want something from YOU, instead of…

Meeting Date Change

Heads up on our meeting date change. In July we will be meeting on <strong>WEDNESDAY, July 16,</strong> same time and place. We changed it because the primary voting is Tuesday (our usual meeting night) and we wanted to make sure everybody gets their ballot cast. So if you don’t exercise your civic duty that night,…

Tossing Pennies

Today we have another episode of our popular series “1000 Ways to Waste Hard-Earned Money on Your Pet.”<br /><div><div><br /><div><br /><div><a href=”http://bp0.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/SGFizDkJ_BI/AAAAAAAAAG8/cE5b3TiKbyw/s1600-h/chatter.jpg”><img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5215558472741551122″ style=”FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px; CURSOR: hand” height=”107″ alt=”” src=”http://bp0.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/SGFizDkJ_BI/AAAAAAAAAG8/cE5b3TiKbyw/s200/chatter.jpg” width=”139″ border=”0″ /></a>How about this handy talking bowl?

Dog Days are coming

We’re heading toward the Dog Days of Summer – my favorite time of year. I’m not thrilled with the heat or outcropping of fleas that comes along with it, but at least us canines have a season in recognition of our superiority. You don’t see any Cat Days on the calendar, do you?<br /><br />WAG’s…

Paw Power

Before outlining my personal woes, I have to comment on WAG’s State of the Animals Report and meeting on June 17. Wow! A packed house of nearly 100 people came to hear some of the details about dogs and cats in Walton County. The enthusiastic, engaged group also had the opportunity to hear from commission…

Pet Smarts

The economy is in a funk, housing is down and jobs are scarce. So guess what company is reporting a 9.1% growth increase? Pet Smart.<br /><br />Yep, while other industries are watching water drain from their income tub, the pet industry continues to grow. Pet Smart’s revenues through May of 2008 are 9.1 percent higher…

And the band marches on..

Enough about politics. Back to the important stuff – animals like me!<br /><br /><div></div><div>In May we’ve been able to rescue 21 dogs and cats from Walton County Animal Control and get them on the road to new homes. Here are just a couple:</div><div><br /></div><div></div><div></div><div></div><div><br /></div><div><a href=”http://bp2.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/SDcQpo-_v1I/AAAAAAAAAFc/TCpCLIjQ_No/s1600-h/Min+Pin.jpg”><img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5203646202012221266″ style=”FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px; CURSOR:…

Fur Lovers Unite!

So, I’ve already told you the Walton County Commission Chairman is coming to our membership meeting on June 17. Let me tell you why that’s important.<br /><br />There has been no humane society in Walton County for a very long time. Unfortunately, our animal services have suffered because of the lack of attention. Here’s a…

Big News

On June 17, 2008, Walton County Commission Chairman Kevin Little will appear at our meeting to discuss plans for the new shelter, along with animal services in Walton County.<br /><br />We are very excited at this opportunity to raise the importance of animal services in the eyes of the local politicians, so please come out…

An animal report

Thanks to those who came out to the McDaniel-Tichenor House pet show, and also our adoption this weekend at Boss Bros. Gorgeous weather both days, so maybe we’ve shrugged off the run of rain clouds we were under for awhile.<br /><br />Here some news – WAG will be compiling a “Walton Co. State of the…

That Musky, Earthy Scent

Ahhh, digging in the fresh spring dirt! Is there anything more relaxing?<br /><br />I’ve been kinda preoccupied lately with things (see above) but wanted to offer a few WAG updates.<br /><br />Stop by the McDaniel-Tichenor House in Monroe this weekend, Sunday, May 4, to check out the fun pet show. There are always good crowds…

Flea Report

<div><div>Well, the fleas were hopping at our market this weekend! WAG early-risers got things cranked up at 8:30 am. Crowds were steady despite the morning drizzle, but the afternoon really perked up. Here’s a few shots:</div><div> </div><div> </div><div> </div><div><img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5191569802990342802″ style=”DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; CURSOR: hand; TEXT-ALIGN: center” alt=”” src=”http://bp2.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/SAwpOs3iUpI/AAAAAAAAAFE/ZzJ3BEr_nSQ/s200/carry.jpg” border=”0″ /></div><div><a href=”http://bp1.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/SAwpCc3iUoI/AAAAAAAAAE8/HiTL7HkpVBQ/s1600-h/shop.jpg”><img…

The Fleas Are Coming!

Countdown to the Fleas Market – one day and counting. Please, Mother Nature, be kind in your weather decisions.<br /><br />We’ve done a great job of collecting cool stuff. In fact, WAG members keep circling the goodies like vultures eyeing roadkill. But there’s no buying ahead of time – they’ll just have to get in…
