WILD Canine Rescue Joins Home 4 the Holidays Adoption Drive

WILD Canine Rescue has teamed with thousands of animal organizations from around the world to participate in the annual Home 4 the Holidays pet adoption drive, founded by Helen Woodward Animal Center. The campaign, which runs from Oct. 1, 2017 through Jan. 2, 2018, unites over 4,000 partner organizations, (in all 50 states and in 26 different countries) with a focused goal of placing orphaned pets into loving homes  The Home 4 the Holidays pet adoption drive began with a growing concern for the number of rescue facilities closing their doors during the holiday seasons.  In seeking the perfect holiday gift, would-be adopters were forced to resort to pet stores or puppy mills. Additionally, pet store staffers, untrained to assess the likelihood of a successful animal/family match, contributed to an increased number of pets sent to shelters once the season was over. The Home 4 the Holidays Campaign asks rescue facilities to keep their doors open and get the word out. The program has grown into the largest pet adoption drive in the world and is credited with saving over 13 million pets across the globe since its inception in 1999.  

With millions of homeless pets in the U.S., it is important everyone get involved to help save a life this holiday season, WILD is proud to be a part of this amazing campaign and we are dedicated to finding loving homes for orphan pets so they can experience a happy new life but we are counting on our community's help in in providing Foster Homes.  Please join us in Saving lives and try Fostering this Holiday Season. This is a great holiday experience for you and your family.  

Try Fostering and Help us Save Lives during the Holiday

To celebrate the campaign's kickoff, Starbucks Coffee is supporting WILD Canine Rescue's fostering program and is inviting the community to try out fostering during the holidays.  Starbuck's Coffee will donate a gift card to every new foster and to anyone who recruits a foster during the holiday season.  LETS GET WILD ABOUT FOSTERING!

The more Fosters we have the more Dogs we can Save!

Its pretty simple, the more committed fosters we have during this holiday, the more dogs we can save.  YOU WILL BE MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND SAVING A LIFE!


Foster License fee waived during the trial period.

please sign up and foster for the holidays
