A LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDERS
Currently, there are more than 14,000 dog rescues operating in the United States. Most of these rescues are privately owned and depend solely on public donations for survival. For donors, trust is the basis of charitable giving and knowing how their donation is being used and the impact it makes is essential. This trust is built over time through transparent action and clear communication.
As lucky owners of rescue pitties, we at Wags Dog Rescue understand how hard rescues work everyday to improve the lives of pups in need. Though their hearts overflow with passion, their coffers often come up short. Day-to-day costs like rent, utilities, food, and veterinary bills can drain limited resources, forcing difficult choices and limiting their ability to help more dogs. We see ourselves as an ally, an essential support to these rescues by working closely alongside and ensuring the strategic funding we provide via our donors is used in one of the following four key areas: general operating funds, dog specific sponsorships, emergency vet funds, and education and advocacy initiatives.
By working closely with our partner rescues and distributing grants across these four strategic areas, we aim to provide the stability needed for them to maximize their life-changing impact, while establishing and building trust with donors. Our thorough and transparent vetting process ensures these grants provide the greatest impact. We analyze budgets, systems, and leadership to guarantee operational effectiveness and fiscal responsibility. When we invest in a rescue’s future, we do so confidently, knowing our community’s compassion will be maximized.
We hope you will join us as we work with one sole goal: Make more tails wag!
