The only thing that feeds my soul more than saving dogs is helping others learn how to do the same. Through School of Wags, we've been able to create an atmosphere where every person who wishes to learn to rescue is welcome. Every person who wants to save a dog, even if it's their dog, is welcome.

Stepping out on faith, we began saving dogs and donations came pouring in to get those dogs what they needed. Now our goal of a sanctuary for the dogs that can't find a family home and a visitation center for our adoptable fosters is our next leap of faith. We can make it happen, together we can save more dogs.

Saving giant breed dogs is our #1 goal at School of Wags!

President aka Dean of Wags note...


Our organization is entirely run by volunteers and our success depends on the continued efforts by volunteers to help our dogs find their forever homes. If you have a little time or a lot of time, we can use your help.  


When we pull a dog into our program, we need somewhere for him or her to go. Our  fosters provide a safe place to go while a  new forever home is found. Interested in learning more ?
