Meet Artie! This sweet dude is chalk full of love, and he'd love someone to share it with! Artie came to Wags and Whiskers from a high kill shelter, where his life was at risk! Now, Artie is safe and healthy and on the hunt for his forever home! Artie has proven good with kids, adults, and dogs of all sizes. If you are looking for the perfect little companion to add to your family, please apply to meet Artie today!   Apply to adopt by clicking on the link below http://www.wagsandwhiskerspetrescue.com/adopt.html Thank you so much for looking into wags and whiskers for your next family member. All of our pets are up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm tested if over 6 months old and will be spayed or neutered before being allowed to go home.  Unfortunately, we don't always know the background of each dog. Some were dumped, abandoned in an empty house, left tied to a tree, picked up by animal control as strays, or simply unwanted by their owners. Please take into consideration that owning a pet is a 10+ year commitment and discuss with all members of your family before submitting an application to adopt.  If you have already filled out an online adoption application with our organization in the last 6 months you do not need to fill out another application. Please call or email us to schedule an appointment.  530-895-8888 If you are interested in meeting this pet please apply to adopt at http://www.wagsandwhiskerspetrescue.com/adopt.html if the pet is still available for adoption and you are approved to adopt we will contact you to set up a meet and greet appointment.    March 2, 2024, 12:25 pm

Story
Meet Ishmeal. This boy came to Wags and Whiskers, with his little companion Ladybug; both of these young dogs have been through some shtuff, and were absolutely traumatized of humans and human interaction upon arrival. Over Ishmeal's time with us, so far, he is slowly starting to gain the tiniest bit of trust in staff members, and has started being brave enough to come up to smell the tips of their fingers. Ishmeal is on the lookout for a quiet home that will give him time and space to adjust to his new surroundings and family, and show him that not all humans are out to hurt him. If you think that you can give Ishmeal the time, acceptance, and comfort he deserves, please don't hesitate to put in your application today!March 2, 2024, 12:25 pm

I was asked to take care of the dog because the owner was very sick. I agreed to because they told me she was fixed. Then the owner died and she isn't fixed. I still have 4 puppies left from her litter and my landlord says they have to go or else.

These pups are in Chico, California too!

My name is Blue and the only dad I’ve known, suddenly passed away, leaving myself, my sister and 3 others with a terrible option. Going to a shelter and being euthanized.  Luckily a friend of my dad’s took us all in and is trying to find us permanent homes.  I’m very sad since my owner passed and I’m more of a loner, now.  I’m afraid of children, but get along with other dogs.  I just want to be in a home and want to treat you like a cat would.  I’m not big on car rides, just like cats.   Apply to adopt by clicking on the link below http://www.wagsandwhiskerspetrescue.com/adopt.html Thank you so much for looking into wags and whiskers for your next family member.

Meet Cisco! This sweet, easy going boy is looking for a slower paced home where there won't be rough and rowdy dogs to bother him; even though Cisco does well with other dogs, he can easily get picked on because of his submissive nature. Cisco's main source of joy in his life is finding a warm lap to cuddle up on, though he does enjoy going on walks and playing with toys too, a lap is his favorite, by far. If you have a warm lap that is feeling a bit empty, apply to meet Cisco today!   Apply to adopt by clicking on the link below http://www.wagsandwhiskerspetrescue.com/adopt.html Thank you so much for looking into wags and whiskers for your next family member.
