Give a Wag! Gives to Fargo Shelters

Running almost entirely from their foster family network, 4 Luv of Dog Rescue partners with dozens of rescues and shelters through North Dakota to find forever homes for pups in need. Offering resources on how to deal with the loss of a pet, pet-friendly housing, and city ordinances on pet ownership, this rescue does all it can to provide the Fargo community with everything it needs to prevent homeless animals. When they are not boosting their foster network, this shelter works closely with the Spay Neuter Impact Project (SNIP).

Diamond in the Ruff Rescue operates entirely on the time and generosity of volunteers in order to rescue and rehabilitate the homeless animals of Fargo. It is their goal to prevent homelessness through desexing, education, and advocacy against breed discrimination. This rescue’s doors are open to animals of all breeds, species, and sizes - including exotics. Founded by one woman with a dream and affinity for pitties, Diamond in the Ruff has been rescuing animals for almost a decade.

The largest shelter in the Fargo area, Homeward Animal Shelter has been in operation for over fifty years! Having rescued over 25,000 animals thus far, this shelter works closely with nearly one hundred community partners to ensure homeless and abandoned animals always have somewhere to go. Homeward hosts a low-cost microchip clinic and is a proud partner with the Safe Paws Program, which offers refuge to pets coming from domestic violence situations.  Additionally, this shelter offers discounts on adoption fees for prospective adopters that are either seniors or in the military.
