Canine Charities' First Fundraiser

Each month it costs Canine Charities approximately $2,600 for food, veterinary care, medications, personalized training and attention, caregiving, etc. to care for our rescues. That’s over $30,000 a year.

On April 30, Diana and Jon Sebaly of Oakwood graciously opened their home to host the first official fundraiser for WagsInn Canine Charities. More than 130 guests attended a fun-filled evening of music, food, silent and live auction, and great company. Your generous donations of over $30,000 will help unwanted dogs find forever homes.

Thank you to the planning committee of Diana Sebaly, Barb Haley, Lesley Neufeld, Tracey Schumann, Tiffany Ebersold, Lori Houseman, and Betsy Woods. Your time and talents are greatly appreciated.

We look forward to our next event and hope you will join us. Thank you from the bottom of hearts. Dog people are the best!

Tucker – Rescue for Adoption

Name: Tuckertuckerstars

Age:  3-4 years

Breed: Hound blend

Tucker is a 4-5 year old hound blend  who loves other dogs and running outside. He is good with kids, but is shy with men. He’s had some issues with men approaching him. Our staff will discuss this at the time of your visit.

Tucker is extremely affectionate with all of us including women and children. He doesn’t mind sharing a home with other dogs, but prefers not to live with a cat. He is worth meeting!
