Give a Wag! Gives to Terre Haute Shelters

Dog It Dig It Rescue is a 501(c)(3) charity in Terra Haute, Indiana that relies solely on donations. Their mission is:  "...to rescue dogs at risk of euthanasia and give them another chance of finding their forever home."  Strays, surrenders and transfers also find sanctuary within their walls. All dogs receive needed veterinary attention and undergo extensive health checks. 


The rescue formed years ago by former members of the Terra Haute Humane Society.  They chose to be the voice for the animals because animals have no voice themselves and life isn't always fair for them. The creatures needed a hero or two and that is how Dog It Dig It Rescue was formed. They place their animals with good, permanent homes. Our pets love us unconditionally; don't they deserve that much too?  


If you are looking for a fur-ever friend, chances are Dog It Dig It Rescue has that one special pet just for you!  If you are not in the market for a new furry family member but would still like to make a donation or volunteer, contact the shelter. There is plenty of work to do, like playing and walking the dogs, cleaning the shelter, working in the office, transporting the pets to adoption events and lots more! 


If you are a paw parent and would like to pay your good fortune forward to those homeless and abandoned animals, donations are always needed. All donations go back into the shelter for medical expenses, food, supplies and gas cards (needed to transport the animals to adoption events and to and from the vet).
