In our mission to create more opportunities for homeless pets to be adopted, we offer our Whisker Wag'n mobile adoption unit to area businesses and community events for a sponsorship fee of $25 per animal. By showcasing some of our most adorable pets we hope to reach potential adopters throughout the community--wherever they are! At various times and scheduled locations, the Whisker Wag’n will have sponsored dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and even pockets pets aboard the vehicle that are happily awaiting adoption into new and loving homes!
