Wags Rescue Rhett is adopted!!! This is certainly the way to close out adoptions for 2018!!! Rhett left yesterday for his forever home. It's short of a miracle! Rhett came to us July 4, 2017!!!! He and 2 others were feral when we saved 28 from a hoarding case. Thanks to lots of love and patience by Susan Kilby Lightfoot and Ed, he left her knowing a friendly touch, a sweet kiss, and all the things a dog deserves! Susan was so excited she forgot the adoption picture. Most would have given up on Rhett, but not Susan ! This is truly a heart of Rescue!! Thank you Susan and Ed for your devotion to Rhett and also your generous year end donation to support the work we do!

WAGS RESCUE MISTY/AKIRA IS ADOPTED.. Yes, there is a family photo but this one stole my heart.. The Beauchamp family of St Marys have adopted a lil love from us a few years ago and it was time to add to the family. This little guy only had eyes for AKira, he named her. Well, Akira follows his every move and they are a bonded pair. I could not have found a more lovely family to have this sweet girl.

WAGS RESCUE SALLIE IS ADOPTED... SALLIE never made it to the website as one of Wags friends told her neighbors about us. Vicki Greene is always spreading the word and this is what happened.. Sallie came to us from a family in a crisis themselves and needed a safe spot for their beloved 9 month girl. We are proud to have the Boltz family adopt our girl, and proud to be able to help another family in need..

WAGS RESCUE BENJAMIN IS ADOPTED.. This boy came to us with literally 15 minutes to live in the local shelter. He loved life here but what he needed was a family who saw all the great qualities he has and loved him. He now has 2 girls and mom /dad who cherish his being... Thankfully, because of rescue , he has that chance at life... Thank you Howell family of Green Cove Springs, Fl for loving our sweet boy...

WAGS RESCUE OLIVER IS ADOPTED... This sweetie came to us with almost no hair. He sat and waited for mos as he healed. Today, he met the couple of his dreams. The Jones fell in love with his gentle nature and loving attitude. He will now live on the beach with daily walks and all the love one boy can stand... LOVE IT.

WAGS RESCUE CAROLINE IS ADOPTED... AGAIN... lol.. She was adopted right before Christmas to a retired couple. THEY found this very active girl to need more exercise than they could do. lol.. They knew she deserved better and we appreciate them looking out for her best interest and allowing her to come back and find the home where her activity level meets that of the new family. The Gardners of St Augustine thinks she is perfection. We agree.... Lots of beach runs, and a great family life..

WAGS RESCUE DAISHA IS ADOPTED... The Paul family drove down from Columbia Sc to fall in love. THAT they did. .. Daisha reminded them of a previous dog so they knew she was exactly what they were looking for. He is retired so she will follow his every foot step during the day but when night time comes she has her own human girl to curl up with. THIS dog hit the jackpot all the way around...

WAGS RESCUE BRODY IS ADOPTED... This retired couple lost their Great Dane a month ago and the Dane in the home went into some depression. The Whaleys knew he needed another playmate and they found perfection., Identical actually. lol... Brody has realized what an exceptional family he has now and we know he will get everything his heart desires. They even have him scheduled for doggie training so he can be so mannerly like their other Dane. Brody deserves this kind of home and we are thrilled for our boy!!! Their connection was immediate and you can see the joy their boy has now at having another brother to love.

WAGS Rescue would like to congratulate Brad on adopting his new baby boy, Barnie!! This was an adoption that was meant to be!! Barnie just adores his new daddy!!!! Barney was clinging to life with no escape from the shelter except last minute by WAGS Rescue. We can only save these dogs when we have fosters who step up to foster. THANKS to long time fosters, Kim Harmon and Pam Paolantonio, Barney has a new lease on life... They saw him on death row and knew they had to step in to save him, and the rest is a beautiful beginning...

WAGS RESCUE IZZY IS ADOPTED... well, letting go of our little kisser here was difficult but we all know what is best for our fosters. Izzy slept snuggled next to me each night since arriving and will sleep right next to the Bolens as well. BOTH fell in love with her , and she with them. I will not worry one moment about the kind of attn and care she will get now and can be happy for her. Izzy and the Bolens were totally meant for one another.

WAGS RESCUE JAZZY IS ADOPTED.. The Simmons , of St Augustine, adopted Zoe from me as a pup 2 1/2 yrs ago. They knew she needed a buddy so Jazzy is it. Perfect match for the perfect adopters. We love when our adopters come back to our rescue when they are ready to add to the family. ZOe is spoiled rotten and I am sure Jazzy will be as well. — with Jim-Terrie Simmons.

WAGS RESCUE TINKERBELL IS ADOPTED.. This tiny 7 lb girl needed just the perfect home. Rodney is 'DAD OF THE YEAR" according to his 14 yr old daughter who has waited on just the right pup. He drove over from Havana, Fl and he said the smiles on his daughter's face was "priceless" Great family for such a sweet , tiny girl...

WAGS RESCUE MAGGIE IS ADOPTED... you all may remember this little beagle coming in to our rescue about to deliver. She fooled us and held on for 10 long days when she delivered her 7 healthy pups. I could not be happier for one of my dogs to end up with Rodney of Gainsville , Fl. She has joined 2 Bassett hounds and has taken care of that Florida HAT ...lol.. SHe knows she is a Georgia girl but has left the rural town that was no good to her, and now will live like a queen in Florida...We are so thankful for those who love our rescue and take the best care of our babies... Rodney is one of those!!! Maggie did well and her babies all have loving homes as well.


Wags Rescue Princess is adopted. Princess lost her human mom this week so we are thrilled that she landed right in the perfect lap of Angela. Angela lost her husband June 1 ,so also needed a companion! Senior doggie for a beautiful young senior lady !
