Woof Gang Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer dog rescue organization serving the Wisconsin and Illinois areas. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs left homeless for whatever reason – primarily focusing on dogs in public shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, dogs given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect. We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog into their homes and lives. Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes. We assist dogs in distress without regard to age, breed or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority. Finally, we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue and humane organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets.

Our top priority here at WGR is to find the best home for each dog. We screen potential adopters (in many ways) to ensure that every adopted dog goes to a home that is safe, loving, and lasting. During the adoption process, you will work closely with your dog's foster parent(s), who know your dog most intimately and can best determine if your home is the best fit for your dog. We will take the application you fill out and run a background check. Please ensure that all of your information is accurate. We will schedule a meet & greet for your family to meet and play with your dog prior to adoption, and we will also a schedule home visit. All adopters sign a contract that outlines and promises proper treatment and care for your pet. The process may seem somewhat strict but this allows us to make sure our dogs receive the best homes possible. A Majority the dogs we rescue come from shelters and/or have abusive pasts. We are 100% dedicated to finding them a home where they can live a happy and healthy, for the rest of their life.
