Wag N Train Terrier Rescue's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, train, and re-home small dogs in need of permanent homes.
We do not have a shelter-type facility. All of our dogs live with dedicated foster families. While in the care of our foster families, our dogs are learning:
- Social Skills
- House (potty) Training
- Kennel Training
- Leash Training
Once our dogs are ready for adoption, we match each dog with the most suitable adoptive family, using our years of experience in rescue to make the best possible decision. Our philosophy is to serve as the "voice of the dog". This means we do not adopt to everyone.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Omaha, Nebraska. Adoption donations and donations made by generous individuals represent our sole source of funding. With these funds, our rescue dogs are brought up-to-date on vaccinations, are spayed or neutered, and are provided with ongoing veterinary care as needed.
What sets us apart from other rescue organizations? Our "Sanctuary Sweethearts" - dogs that will stay in rescue for the remainder of their lives because of advanced age or serious health issues. Wag N Train provides all medications, supplements, dog food and required therapy for these dogs so that they may spend the rest of their lives in comfort. Private donations are the only source of funding for our "Sanctuary Sweethearts."
We do adopt outside our state, but require the adopter to travel to Omaha, Nebraska to pick up their newly adopted dog. We do not transport or fly our rescue dogs.
Our volunteers are available to help you from start to finish by offering:
- Counseling before adoption
- Training recommendations throughout your pet's lifetime
- Grief counseling when that time does come
Feel free to ask questions at any time, either during or after the adoption process. We will be there to support you.
We know Terriers because we own them and LOVE THEM!
