Spring Fling Online Auction for Critical Care Animals

Let's grow some funds for WAG's Critical Care animals at our Spring Fling Online Auction. In the first few months of 2022 WAG has already had over ten Critical Care Animals requiring extra vet visits and surgeries. From leg amputations, to urinary blockages to Diabetic senior cats, and many more, WAG has some expensive veterinary bills to cover. 100% of proceeds from this online auction will go directly to helping cover those costs.

Grab some sweet items and help those animals in the most need!

THANK YOU to all our amazing donors!

Join us on FEBRUARY 15th for some delicious Creekbread Pizza takeout!

Partial proceeds of every pizza sold will be donated to WAG that night - YUM!
