The process of adopting Ginger during the pandemic was extremely easy with Waggytail. The volunteers were caring and gave me the time I needed to confidently make the decision to bring Ginger into my life.

I adopted Rosie (fka Baby) in February 2018 and Chili in February 2021. They are two peas in a pod and love to wrestle and cuddle. Thanks Waggytail!

We foster-failed and adopted Tilly in February 2020. She makes us laugh every day and has so much personality in such a little body. We’re thankful for Waggytail for rescuing her!
