Jax is a 7 month old, 12lb Jack Russel terrier mix. He came from a rural shelter in Alabama and in the few short days in his foster home, he has blossomed into a silly and playful puppy! He loves his foster brother, watching his every move and following him around the house. He needs a patient and understanding owner who will continue to help him gain confidence. While he is quite timid when approached, he will come to you when he feels comfortable (which happened within two days in his current foster home!) As he is young, we are confident that he will flourish. He has not yet been leashed, but uses a wee pad and the outdoor balcony of his foster home. We believe a home with another dog is necessary. Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, and bordatella. Neutered and heartworm negative. Needs microchip. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention due 10/7. Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails! Visit our website (www.waggytailrescue.org) for an adoption application. It is important to fill out an application as soon as possible for consideration, and we require a complete application for you to meet an animal.  Adoptions: waggyadopt@gmail.com Waggytail Rescue CANNOT guarantee the exact age of any adoptable dog, or final size of any of our adoptable puppies. We rely on the information provided to us by veterinarians, shelters, owner surrenders and other circumstances bringing the dog into our rescue. show less

Laffy is a 4-month-old, 5-pound neutered male kitten.  You won’t meet a sweeter kitten than Laffy. He loves being the center of attention! Whether he's playing or snuggling, he’s equally down for either! He loves belly rubs and chasing his laser toy down the hall, then snuggling up in a cozy spot for a nap. He’s just learning to use his voice and will meow when his humans leave the room. A perfect little gentleman, he uses his litter box with no accidents and scratches his post instead of the furniture. Laffy warms up to new people very quickly and would make the perfect addition to any family! Recieved two rounds of FVRCP and rabies. Microchipped and spayed. Third round of FVRCP due 9/29.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!

Trixie (fka Cha Cha) is 3-months old, 8-pounds female terrier/hound mix. In looks and temperament (and voice), she is more hound than terrier. A sweet and loveable little girl, she is all-around a good pup. With equal parts playful puppy and snuggly sweetheart, Trixie loves her toys and also cuddles. This beauty loves a good tussle with other dogs (as well as humans young and old) but also happily crawls into your lap for a nap. A bit clingy to her human, she can be quite demanding of belly rubs. An important note: She is recovering from a broken paw but is expected to heal fully. As a very young pup, it's hard to know her true personality while she's on medication and in a cast but her foster mom believes Trixie will be an active pup needing exercise and training. Doing very well with pad-training, she's successful 75% of the time. Quite a typical puppy minus her temporary injury! Vaccinated for two rounds of DA2P, lepto, bordatella. Microchipped. Needs rabies vaccine and spay. Third round of DA2P due 9/24.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!

Zander is 12ish-years, 4-pounds male chihuahua mix. This poor boy was a stray from Alabama now starting his life is NYC. Zander is a sweet but rather scared and scrawny boy that needs some serious TLC from a devoted and dedicated family to allow his senior years to be the best of his life. As a tiny boy, his hobbies are simple: burrowing under covers and/or sleeping in cozy spaces. Zander is easy to please and clear with his preferences - leave him alone with a pile of blankets and loves fatty and meaty treats or food. We are still learning more about his overall health and monitoring closely, so we are hoping for an understanding adopter who has experience with seniors. Seems to be a typical elderly chihuahua in need of a patient and loving home to call his own! Vaccinated for rabies, DHLPP, bordatella. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention due 10/8. Neutered and heartworm negative. Needs microchip.
