Wags & Whiskers is dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs in high kill shelters.

Wags and Whiskers Animal Rescue of MN is a volunteer run 501(c)(3), non-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals and educating the community on responsible pet ownership. Wags and Whiskers does not have its own facility. Instead, all our animals stay in foster homes while they wait to find their forever home. Because of this, we get to know our animals personalities very well and use this information to match them to an appropriate forever family.

Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue is an all-breed rescue. We rescue dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, and in 2013 Wags adopted out its first Pot Belly Pig Elvis! Wags & Whiskers will not only take any breed, we will also take any age animal. From the bottle feeding babies, to the old senior dogs that were dumped and left unwanted at a shelter. Lets be honest, who doesn't have a soft spot for the seniors. They need to end out their time on this earth being loved and cherished. There is the right home for every animal. And until that home comes along, they will be loved by our amazing foster families that donate all their time and love.

In 2013, Wags took on quite a few medical cases. And we were able to do that because of all the generous donations and fundraisers that we held. We can't thank you enough for all the support we have been given. In 2013, We also had over 100 cats and kittens in rescue at the same time! That has never happened before. Thank you for choosing Wags & Whiskers to donate to. We appreciate your generosity!

Here is what some of our volunteers and supporters have to say about us:

~ Wags and Whiskers is a rescue that goes above and beyond for it's animals from making sure that they are properly vetted and healthy to matching them with their homes. I have 2 Wags kids and couldn't be happier! Both my guys had some serious issues when they arrived at Wags, but through their love and caring developed into great little guys. We couldn't be happier with our Wags kids!

~ This is an organization that knows how to work hard and work smart. The people that make this organization as effective as it is deserve this. Wags runs its mission with dedicated volunteers--no paid staff. I'm proud of the work they do, and so thankful they rescued our dog and found him a warm place in our home.

~ I started fostering/volunteering for Wags last summer, and it has been an amazing experience thus far and I believe it will continue to be! Wags takes in hard cases and they do their best to save all the animals they can, even pigs! :) The group of people who volunteer for Wags are amazing and work as hard as they can!!!

Then there is Nolan and Luca. They came into our rescue starved and suffering from malnutrition when they were just tiny babies - causing Osteopenia. This caused their bones and muscles to form or grow improperly.... They are now 3 years old. Wags took on the responsibility of caring for these 2 and we took them on as Wags & Whiskers mascots. They do make it to some of our events like the No-kill Walk, Petfest at the Ren fest, and a few others. We hope that you will be able to meet them! They are very precious little boys :)
