Since its inception in 2016, Wags Rescue has found fur-ever homes for over 100 rescues. To make these adoptions possible, it requires support from many different sources. Whether it’s from our wonderful foster parents or the generosity of our community businesses and families, Wags Rescue has always been able to provide for, and rehome, the special dogs and cats in our care.

This year we took our annual fundraising event, Pupkins & Pints, virtual due to the continued safety precautions in place for Covid-19. Renamed Pupkins & Pandemic, Wags Rescue is asking for your support with the purchase of our new limited-edition t-shirt, Amazon Smile donations, and/or contributions of pet care items and cash.


Pupkins & Pandemic T-Shirts

If you’re looking for a fun way to support the Rescue, we have just the thing – our Pupkins & Pandemic limited-edition t-shirt. For only $25 – you can wear your support for all to see. These also make great gifts for the holidays. Stop by Wags ‘N Whiskers and pick up your t-shirt to help support the Rescue. (Limited quantities available.)


Amazon Smile

One of the easiest ways to help our furry rescue friends is through your regular Amazon purchases. Simply shop at and they will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to Wags ‘N Whiskers Rescue—no fees, no extra cost.

Pet Item Donations

Making sure our rescue pets have shelter, food, and basic necessities is an ongoing responsibility of the Rescue. If you have any of the following new or gently used pet supplies to donate, please call 205.902.WAGS (9247) or drop off at Wags ‘N Whiskers in Homewood.

  • Towels
  • Blankets/Beds

One of the hands-on ways you can be a hero to our rescues is to volunteer as a dog walker or foster parent. Rescue pets need to experience home life and get daily exercise. Our rescue volunteers provide a critical service these pets need to help them easily transition to a new home. If you are interested in being a volunteer dog walker or foster parent, call 205.902.WAGS (9247) or email


Monetary Donations

For those who can support the rescue with a monetary donation, you can do so through Venmo to Jill Becker or by clicking the donation button on our website page. All donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated. For more information about Wags Rescue contact or call (205) 902.WAGS (9247).


This year be a hero and make a difference to a rescue. Whether you adopt, foster, or provide a donation, you are helping so many deserving dogs and cats have a chance to live a happy, fulfilled life with a new loving family.


Thank you for your support!
