About Our Rescue Group:

Wag N Train Terrier Rescue was formed in April 2010 to provide tender loving care for terriers in need. We are a small, all-volunteer organization made up of uniquely talented individuals who all love dogs. Several of us are certified pet dog trainers and we hold weekly training sessions for the dogs in our foster care. In addition, we also teach dog training classes to the general public and offer a weekly small dog play group for supervised socialization opportunities.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our dogs can be viewed at Petco at 136th & Maple the second Saturday of April, June, August, October, and December. Meetings by appointment can be arranged upon approval to adopt. We also hold adoption events at Petsmart in the Shadow Lake Shopping Center (Papillion), Long Dog Fat Cat (across from Village Pointe Shopping Center), and The Green Spot. Please see our calendar on our website: http://www.wagntrainterrierrescue.com/calendar.htm

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process starts with a completed adoption application requiring three personal references, a vet reference and a mandatory home visit. Once approved to adopt, a adoption contract and adoption donation are required, as well as traveling to the Omaha area to pick up your newly adopted dog. We required securely fenced yards for our terrier breeds and we do not consider invisible fencing safe or appropriate for terriers. Adoption applications can be found at wagntrainterrierrescue.com

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
