Waggin’ Trails Rescue Foundation

What We Do:

We rescue companion animals from overcrowded California shelters and abandonment situations and find them loving forever homes through local placement and partnerships with like-minded rescue organizations. WTRF also provides public education about animal welfare, spay/neuter services, and helping the animal community in emergency situations.

WTRF is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming at-risk companion animals. We’re often contacted by County Animal Control to help animals that have been abandoned or are in dangerous situations; we recently went to the home of an elderly person and rounded up 6 cats with multiple litters.  They will be spayed/neutered and returned to her.

We work in tandem with REAP: Ripple Effect Animal Project, which was started by a group of dedicated, compassionate Napa professionals that specialize in rescuing senior or other animals in need of medical care from our local shelters.  We assist the public with animal welfare needs.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer opportunities

  • Become a foster parent to an animal
  • Social Media support
  • Fundraising Event
    • Soliciting donations for auction/raffle prizes
    • Selling tickets
    • Asking for food and drink donations
    • Helping at a fundraising event including serving food/drink, setting up for event, preparing raffle baskets, others

Business Partners:


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.
