Rescue Waggin’: Helping Dogs in Need

Lifesaving? Absolutely! 

The Rescue Waggin’ program relocates homeless pets from shelters in overpopulated communities to adoption centers in areas where dogs and puppies are in high demand. 

And it works. Since the program started in 2004, we’ve saved more than 80,000 dogs. 

Kane, who was featured in PetSmart Charities® documentary “The Journey Home: A Rescue Waggin’ Story,” quickly adapted to his new family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

Read Kane’s story one year later and learn how his family keeps him active all day.
