Helping Hands

A big Thank You to WAG friend Meri Kate. For the second year in a row, Meri Kate made arrangements to do a food-raising drive for WAG’s pet food pantry at Tractor Supply in Monroe. She set up the date and created her own marketing materials, letting people know about the food pantry and how…

Matching Kindness

Walton Animal Guild would like to thank Modern Woodmen of America for their $2,500 matching gift. Their philanthropic program provided matching funds for money raised (up to $2,500) from our September fundraising drive. We received their check last week – the money is in the bank and will help many animals in 2017 due to…

What Does WAG Do?

Helping animals and people – that’s our goal. Through programs like Rescue, Adoption, Spay/Neuter, and other community oriented programs, WAG works to help homeless pets find loving families, and assist pet owners with keeping their animals healthy and happy. A review of our 2015 results shows our methods: Our Spay/Neuter Program sterilized 140 pets of…

Remembering Katherine Pete

Heartfelt condolences go out to our friends at Alliance Fire Protection Services and owners Rick and Ronda Parks at the sudden passing of their daughter, Katherine Pete. This kind, generous person and devoted animal lover volunteered for WAG over the years and was a dedicated behind-the-scenes supporter since our beginning. Katherine leaves behind a young…

A Doggone Yard Sale

Update: A Big THANK YOU to our supporters for making the yard sale a rousing success! We raised over $1,300 on Saturday, and combined with additional sales and donations brought in $2,504, enough to maximize the matching donation opportunity!   ***************************************** Get ready to do some shopping at WAG’s Doggone Yard sale on Saturday, September…

Paws at Work for WAG

Great people have great ideas. Our friends at Alliance Fire Protection Services have come up with an innovative way to support WAG – a Take Your Dog to Work day! For a small donation, employees sign up to bring their dogs into work with them for one day. The employee has the fun of spending…

Puppy Prevention Program

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…

Remembering Joyce Nunley

Our condolences to the family of Joyce Nunley for the loss of this wonderful animal-loving Southern lady. Joyce, who was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Ray Nunley, passed away on March 27, 2016 at her home in Loganville,  leaving behind many loving friends and family. Survivors include her daughters Sonya Dixon…

Sharing and Caring

A big thank you to the Tractor Supply stores in Monroe and Snellville for their recent donations to WAG’s Pet Food Pantry. Many businesses needlessly discard merchandise, so we’re grateful Tractor Supply considered the needs of their community when making plans for discontinued manufacturer’s product.  All WAG food donations go toward helping pet parents in…

Sweet Sarah

A sad update to our story about Sarah. A day after her spay surgery she began to show some discomfort which worsened overnight. By the next morning she was in obvious pain and we rushed her to the vet. The diagnosis was a gastric torsion, an emergency condition where the stomach is distended by gas and…

In Memory

Our hearts go out to the family of Jeff Noll on the unexpected loss of this dedicated animal lover. We met this very kind man last summer when he drove all the way to Loganville from South Carolina to adopt a new puppy from us. Anyone who would drive five hours to Georgia to pick…

WAG’s 2015 Results

WAG had a busy year in 2015!  Our Spay/Neuter Program sterilized 140 pets of Walton County residents, either through subsidies for low-income pet owners, shelter sponsorships or promotions like Beat the Heat and Puppy Prevention. Our Puppy Prevention program grew considerably this year- 29 female dogs and 152 puppies enrolled in 2015 – tripling the…

One More Chance to Help

Thanks to our wonderful donors, more than 240 animals were helped in 2015. As a small grassroots organization, Walton Animal Guild is fortunate to have the support of many community pet lovers. Because of your donations, many dogs and cats are in warm, loving homes this holiday season. We’re blessed to be able to help…

The Rescuer’s Club

Animal rescue is a daily affair. New animals come into the shelter each day. We visit the shelter to pick them up and take them for much-needed veterinary care and annual vaccines. Over the weeks or months they’re in foster care volunteers feed and socialize them, teach doggy or kitty manners and work to make…
