About

Wags & Whiskers Pet Rescue is a non-profit, No-Kill pet rescue and adoption agency located in St. Augustine, Florida. We are a small, local group of volunteers working hard to ensure that every animal in our community can find the perfect home. Forever.

Wags & Whiskers is not a shelter. We are a small group of volunteers that fosters dogs and cats until they are adopted. The animals come from various places. Some come from owners who are no longer able to care for them. Others are taken from local shelters, yet still others (many others) come from the streets. Those rescued from the streets often arrive sick or injured, and are subsequently treated by veterinarians. We have great success finding homes for puppies and kittens as well as older animals and those with special needs (such as blind and handicapped cats and dogs).

We also operate a low-cost spay/neuter assistance program (SNAP) to help end the heartbreak of pet overpopulation and the high rate of euthanization in shelters.
