Waggin Trails Rescue Foundation

"Saving a life........One dog at a time."

Welcome to Waggin' Trails


In a word, Waggin' Trails is a lifesaver.  We rescue and locally re-home or transport companion animals scheduled for death due to lack of space in California shelters, as well as other neglected or abused animals. Waggin' Trails has volunteers throughout the state of California, and friends and partners in many states and Canada.


The problem of homeless animals in California continues to worsen in this challenging economy.  We have been transporting animals to areas such as Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Western Canada where shelters are less impacted and these animals are readily adopted. We partner with organizations sharing our rescue philosophy and procedures that speak to a high standard in order to ensure these worthy animals are placed in excellent homes.
