Give a Wag! Gives to Petaluma Shelters

Petaluma is a community-oriented city that really has a lot to offer our pawsitively purrfect pals! With plenty of fur families around, it's no surprise to see that there are some outstanding organizations in the area that work hard to protect those who are lost or homeless.

Although the number of organizations is not large, each one is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of the homeless fur babies that come to them.  

For example, Puppy Life Saver is a group that practices a no-kill policy and fights hard to rehome every dog that so desperately needs shelter. Serving the majority of the Sonoma County region, they are one of the main organizations to call when you find a dog in need.

Another great place is the Petaluma Animal Shelter, where their main focus is education and rehabilitation. Taking in homeless animals is simply what they do. Their care and attention that they provide shows who they are.  

In addition to serving the Petaluma area as an animal shelter, they also provide a variety of resources to pet owners in order to help them keep their pets happy and healthy. These resources make a large difference for many families and can be the dividing line between folks hanging onto their fur babies and having to find them another home.

Finally, we come to Marin Humane Society. Over 110 years of animal welfare history is a very solid foundation and these people know how to build on a foundation quite well. They are pawsitively outstanding individuals who are serving up education, rehabilitation, and fur-ever homes for the hundreds of homeless pets in the area.
