Give a Wag! Gives to Bloomington Shelters

The Nest Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to rescuing and fostering unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs. They also take in dogs that are ill or deemed "too old" or "inconvenient" for their former owners. All of their furry family members are placed in loving foster homes to help socialize them to people and other pets, and to give them extra special hugs and love and to make them feel like a part of a family, something most of the rescued dogs have never felt before. The dogs in foster care are able to run and play and eat only the highest quality food. The dogs also receive any and all necessary veterinarian care when they enter The Nest - vaccinations, tests, treatments and physical exams. All of their pets will also be spayed/neutered before going to their new fur-ever homes.  

Adopting a dog is a LIFELONG commitment, so the staff at The Nest takes all the time that is necessary to pick the perfect family for each of their dogs. They want to make sure each potential adoptive family knows what is expected of them. The dog they adopt will be a member of their family for its whole life. However, these families are not alone, as the staff is happy to educate anyone on proper care and treatment of animals and to guide you in choosing the perfect pet for your lifestyle. 

The Nest has received the 2015 "Be More Award" for compassion in the category of "Animal Welfare". The dogs that come into The Nest's sanctuary don't know the simple pleasures of running or feeling loved. This is precisely why the staff at the Nest does what they do. To see pure joy in the eyes of a dog who has known only pain and neglect for the first time in his life is magical. All dogs deserve this as they give us so much love. Being able to return that favor is an honor.
