Puppy Overload?

momandpuppies

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 an unplanned litter of puppies? Maybe WAG can help. WAG’s Puppy Prevention Program works with pet owners of mother dogs with litters by vaccinating the babies to keep them healthy, spay/neuter them when old enough, then adopt them into qualified homes. We then spay the mother dog to prevent further litters, all at no cost to the owner. It’s all part of our goal to end pet overpopulation in our area. Do you need help with a litter of…

What Does WAG Do?

making a difference

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 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 enrollment from 2014! Our thanks to the owners of these “mom” dogs for allowing WAG to help with the LAST litters! WAG provided over 12,000 lbs of pet food…

Monroe Community Cats Project

MCCP

Here’s a surprising fact – an estimated 16,000 feral cats live in Walton County. They roam in wooded lots, behind shopping centers, restaurants and abandoned houses. You may not see them during the day because they’re adept at avoiding humans, but they can seen at night cruising their territory. Feral cats offer great rodent protection – even Disneyland has recognized their value and has their own authorized pack of feral cats to keep the mouse population in check! These cats belong to no one, but they pose a unique challenge for everyone. The females can breed several times each year and produce six kittens or more in each litter, causing the population to skyrocket. Ignoring the problem isn’t an option. Walton Animal Guild has joined…

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 so many deserving pets and humbled by your faith in us. There’s still time to make that last tax-deductible gift for 2015 to help those animals who deserve a second chance. Animals like Petey, a cute Pomeranian mix WAG rescued just this week. Petey is a happy boy, but unfortunately tested positive for heartworms. He’ll spend the next few months in foster care while undergoing heartworm treatment, but will soon…

The Rescuer’s Club

heartbeat

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 them into great adoptable pets. Every month they’re given heartworm and flea preventive. WAG volunteers do the “dirty work” of cleaning cages and anything the animals might have left behind. We medicate them when they get sick, through short term issues like colds and diarrhea or serious illnesses requiring surgery. We drive them to meet transports taking them to new homes out-of-state, pack them up for weekend adoption events and…
