Waggin’ Trails Rescue Foundation

Waggin’ Trails Rescue Foundation

What We Do:

We rescue companion animals from overcrowded California shelters and abandonment situations. Then, we find them loving forever homes through local placement and through partnerships with like-minded rescue organizations, humane societies and no-kill shelters. We also provide public education about animal welfare.

WTRF is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming at-risk companion animals, providing public education about spay/neuter services, and helping the animal community in emergency situations.

WTRF focuses on partnering with local shelters and the public to remove animals from dangerous conditions, getting them to locations where they can find loving forever homes. We work in tandem with Ripple Effect Animal Project, which was started by a group of dedicated, compassionate Napa animal professionals that specialize in rescuing senior animals and animals in need of medical care from our local shelters, and assisting the public with animal welfare needs.

Other Ways to Help:

We LOVE our volunteers and donors! We are always in need of loving foster homes for our animals. We provide food, medical care and training. All they need to provide is a supportive environment where a dog or cat can thrive until a permanent home is found.

If you are not able to foster, we can always use supplies:

  • Dog/cat food
  • Flea and tick medication and other animal care supplies
  • Amazon gift cards for supplies
  • Gas cards for transport
  • Gift cards/donations for our fundraisers.


We rely heavily on and thank our rescue partner, Waggin Trails Rescue Foundation, to help free up urgent shelter space due to local emergencies, like the recent Northern California fires.
