Fly A Dog To Freedom

Do you have a flight scheduled from Los Angeles, Dallas, or San Diego to NYC? You can help save a life by bringing along one of our rescue dogs!

Volunteer chaperones are the primary way we move dogs from some of these high-risk areas to New York City, where small, apartment-friendly dogs are in high demand. Each dog is flown in the cabin, under your seat in an airline-approved carrier that we provide, ensuring comfort and companionship the whole trip.​

Become A WaggyPal

At Waggytail Rescue, we strive to help all animals--the young and healthy, and the elderly and sick. All require ongoing financial support for everything from supplies to medical and behavioral care. WaggyPal provide year-round support to our organization and ensure we have the funds available to take in more high-needs animals.

By giving a monthly gift of even just $10, you're making a long-term impact for our animals and helping to sustain our mission and programs. So where does your donation go?

  • $10 provides a bag of food for our fosters

  • $25 provides heartworm preventative

  • $150 provides a freedom ride for 1 dog to NYC

Monthly donors are an invaluable part of the Waggytail Rescue family. Your monthly donation supports us and our animals year-round (psst - WaggyPals get insider perks, so keep an eye on your email!)
