Waggytail Rescue is an all-volunteer, NYC based animal rescue charity dedicated to the rehabilitation and rehoming of small breed dogs.


Our program is focused on finding forever homes for animals in urgent circumstances by saving dogs from imminent euthanasia in over-crowded shelters.

Founded in 2004, Waggytail Rescue is a NYS registered (RR115)501c-3 non-profit organization that rescues between 300 - 500 abandoned dogs each year.  Through the tireless work of our many volunteers and amazing fosters, we are committed to continuing to find forever homes for New York's littlest strays.

Waggytail does not have a physical shelter location, all of our animals are fostered by our wonderful volunteers in their loving homes.  Our goal is to try to find the perfect match between the rescued animal and the adopter.  We want to make sure that the personality of the animal matches the adopter’s idea of their perfect pet. As these animals have been through so much in their lives we try to ensure a stable home and minimize the risk of yet another move.
