About Our Rescue Group:

Wilma's Orphans Inc is a small not for profit [501c3] dog [only] rescue that works very hard finding permanent homes for dogs who need a second, third or even fourth chance at happiness. It is a one-woman operation, and I am that woman. My name is Wilma, and I've been interested in dogs all my life. After retiring from the business world it seemed only natural to follow my dream and my passion both of which involve working with dogs, and so Wilma's Orphans Inc came into being. The main objective is to rescue homeless and unwanted dogs with adoption to loving forever families the end result. Every dog is seen by a veterinarian regardless of where it came from. They are given their rabies and distemper vaccinations, dewormed and complete blood panels taken. All dogs are spayed or neutered before adoption. If there is a medical or physical problem it is taken care of to the best of my ability. Each dog's temperament and personality is well-known so prospective adopters are fully informed before adopting. There are a variety of breeds, mixes, sizes, shapes, sexes, ages and colors. Practically something for everyone. Please look at all the sweet faces imploring you to take them home. You just might find the "love of your life" at Wilma's Orphans. Give us a call and come see.

Come Meet our Pets:

Prospective adopters are welcome to come meet the dog of their choice but need to contact Wilma's Orphans to set up an appointment. Visits are by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process:

Meeting the dog you are interested in is an important part of the adoption process. And if you are looking for a second dog bringing your current pet along for the initial "meet n greet" is of paramount importance. The dogs do have the final say in determining the success of an adoption. If they don't get along no matter how much you like our dog it won't work.

The adoption process consists of an application, home visit, contract, and donation.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
