We are passionate about finding the right home for the right animal
To provide a safe, caring refuge for animals; To insure quality adoptive homes; To advocate for their welfare through compassion, education, creative solutions and a passion for the human-animal bond.
We serve as a model for animal sanctuaries worldwide. Today the relationship between humankind and animals is guided by compassion. Pet overpopulation and animal cruelty have been greatly reduced through animal welfare legislation, education of responsible pet ownership, rescue, adoption, non-euthanasia and mandatory spay/neuter policies.
Wags to Riches Animal Rescue and Sanctuary, serving Central Washington, was established in 2008 and is run solely by volunteers through the generous help of our supporters and their donations.
We are here for the welfare of homeless animals. Our priority is to facilitate the rescue and adoption of stray, abandoned, neglected, abused, and surrendered animals and to place them into permanent, loving homes. In the interim, we will provide appropriate foster and veterinary care, proper nourishment, and give them plenty of love and attention.
We will support and conduct education and informational activities to increase public awareness of pet overpopulation, increase concern and promote responsibility as well as promote spay and neuter thru education and other activities.
Wags to Riches Animal Rescue and Sanctuary has non-profit, 501(c) 3 status. All Wags people are volunteers –all money goes to the care, concern and feeding of the animals and not staff salaries. We will assist in all surrounding states and Canada. We will re-home animals to the surrounding areas as well.
