The WAG mission is: To assist in the permanent placement of stray, abandoned,unclaimed and surrendered dogs in and around the Wimberley area. To promote and ensure the compassionate and humane treatment of dogs in our care by providing medical treatment, vaccinations, up-to-date shots, spay/neuter services, and professional evaluation, training and rehabilitation if required. To place these dogs in safe-haven, pre-screened foster homes where they are nurtured, receive training, and learn socialization skills so that they have the best chance of becoming a good companion animal. To find the most suitable, vetted permanent home for each dog based on its temperament and personality. To educate the public about responsible pet ownership, treating animals with dignity and encouraging spay/neutering of all pets in order to prevent overpopulation and animal suffering.
