We do not have a facility, so we can’t rescue animals unless we have a safe place for them to stay until they find their forever homes. We need foster families to save lives!! Fostering is fun and rewarding - take a look at this video, which was made by a foster family who really enjoys helping animals.  Our foster homes must be located in Ocean, Monmouth or Middlesex County (or within an hour of our vets). For more information about fostering, click here.

Browse our dogs/cats needing foster homes, and consider volunteering as a foster family to help save lives.   If you'd like to sign up to be a foster home, click here(The application is the same as the adoption application).


Not able to foster?  We have many other ways you can help, speaking with potential adopters, helping with outreaches, and transporting animals.  If you're interested in helping out, apply here.


We have lots of donated items available and all proceeds go to Wag On Inn!



Wag On Inn Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue that was founded in 1998. We are a foster-based rescue, and primarily care for dogs, cats, bunnies, guinea pigs, and rats in foster homes with love and care from our amazing volunteers.  We pair with sister rescue groups in Louisiana, Texas, South Carolina and North Carolina to save animals victim to pet overpopulation in the South. We also take local owner surrenders and assist shelters in NY, NJ and PA.  Each animal is fully vetted prior to adoption, and all animals, with the exception of guinea pigs, are spayed/neutered prior to adoption in an effort to curb the pet overpopulation crisis. In recent years, through the efforts of an amazing group of volunteers, we have grown our team allowing us to save even more animals! In 2018 we had a total of 225 adoptions. In 2019 we doubled that number to 458 adoptions. In 2020, the year of the pandemic, we celebrated 941 adoptions, an amazing accomplishment. 

This is why we pull so many dogs from Louisiana! Texas and California have the worst statistics in the country. Louisiana isn't far behind. We and our rescue partners pull dogs from rural kill shelters, strays, and owner surrenders. We ensure all animals are fixed, vaccinated and microchipped as part of their adoption in Louisiana or the northeast. Our partners in Louisiana work hard to change local laws and educate people on spay/neuter and animal care. We are doing our very best to change this map!


A big thank you to all our friends!  We are grateful for your help. Click here  for information about companies that donate time and services to us.


Several companies will donate to Wag On Inn if you use their services - an easy way to generate income for us.
