We place homeless cats and dogs with loving families

Wag On Inn Rescue is a NJ-recognized 501(C)3 animal rescue organization. We are a group of dedicated volunteers focused on rehoming dogs and cats. We usually have a variety of sizes and ages looking for their forever home; we continually bring in new animals to the rescue as others are adopted.  Our dogs come from shelters in the local area and the south, owner surrenders in the area, and from rescues in Puerto Rico.  We do not have a shelter facility; our dogs are kept in private foster homes in Monmouth and northern Ocean counties, with just a few in boarding if necessary.  Our cats are kept in private homes and at PetCo in Eatontown, where volunteers feed them and play with them.  We work with our animals to rehabilitate them as necessary, including socializing them with other animals and with people, as part of the rehoming process. We spay/neuter all of our animals before adoption, and we ensure that they are up-to-date with vaccines. Our pets receive all the love, care, and petmeds they need until they find their forever homes.

If you are looking for a new companion, we hope you will find a new furry friend to fit your family. Feel free to browse through our animals. In the green menu on the left-hand-side of this page, under "Search Our Website", click on the "GO" button see who is available. To find out who else may have arrived, but is not yet available, click on the "Dogs Needing Foster Homes" link.  You can also see who is still in need of a foster home on that page.  We regularly add new animals in need of rescue, so if you don't find a match keep checking! For more information about the adoption process, click on "Adoption Info" at the left-hand-side of this page.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us. Teenagers and older can help with the dogs at adoption outings (see "Events"). We need help picking up dogs from Newark Airport when they come in from Puerto Rico, and driving them back to Eatontown to meet their foster families. We need volunteers to feed, clean, and socialize the cats at PetCo in Eatontown. Finally, and most importantly, foster homes are needed. If you think you'd like to foster, let us know. We can tell you what's involved, and you can decide if you'd like to give it a try. You'll be saving a life!

If you would like to fill out an application to "adopt", ask us to "help find me a match", "volunteer" or "foster", look under Website Features (in the menu on the left), and click on forms/applications.  Once the application is filled out, someone will be in contact with you. We will try to assist you in every way we can.

We always welcome donations!  We have a wish list available under "Donation Info".  Monetary donations are also appreciated. These donations are used to help defray the cost of transporting dogs from high-kill shelters to our foster homes in New Jersey. The donations are also (primarily) used to help the animals with their medical needs and required medicines. Our medical expenses are astronomical!
