About WGR

Our Mission

Woof Gang Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, no kill, all volunteer dog rescue organization serving not only the Wisconsin and Illinois areas but Arkansas, Missouri and Ohio as well. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs left homeless for whatever reason –  focusing on dogs in shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation and owner surrenders, and those in danger of abuse or neglect. We also find it very rewarding to give breeder dogs a second chance by finding them a forever loving home. These dogs have been given up for a number of reasons including; medical issues, done breeding,or simply dogs that didn't sell.

Our goal is to place dogs in loving, responsible,  committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and cost of bringing a dog into their homes and lives.

Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, received all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes.

We assist dogs in distress without regard to age, breed or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority.

Finally, we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue and humane organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets.
