A Shelter Full of Hope and Promise

WAG Whistler prides itself on helping animals in the community to have a better life. Through education, community outreach and rescue services, WAG stays true to its goals. Our adoption process was fair and thorough. We were well informed throughout and knew that puppy Indie's best interests were at the front of WAG's consideration. We opened our home and hearts to Indie and couldn't be happier.

So glad I found this amazing shelter! Thank you for all your hard work and uniting me with my new best friend ❤️

We are so in Love with our Puppy, Delta! The whole experience was amazing. Thank you WAG and special Thanks to Amy!

I adopted Piper five years ago-I filled out the application and they paired us up to fit with our family dynamics-and she is the PERFECT fit! Their facilities were wonderful and I recommend them every time any asks to pet her and asks her story. Loving every moment with my forever friend, Piper

I love how WAG is so integrated into the Whistler Events Community! -Stephen
