WAGS - Westminster Adoption Group and Services
www.4wags.com was founded by Dr. Tia Greenberg, WAGS opened on July 1st, 2011 to provide animal adoption services to the City of Westminster. WAGS services the City of Westminster in many ways WAGS houses and cares for their stray and unwanted animals (dogs, cats, rabbits, etc.). Using the ACPCA’s Meet Your Match Personality program® we adopt out the pets who are lucky enough to go into new loving homes, provide information about humane services and have multiple volunteer opportunities.
We are located within the Westminster Veterinary Group Services, animal hospital (WVG) which complements our services in many ways. WAGS being located in WVG means our stray and unwanted animals get the same high quality care that the hospital's clients get! This sets us apart from many of the other shelters in our area or nationally. From the newborn kittens needing to be bottle-fed to the senior dogs with all their lumps and bumps, they all get excellent care. All pets are given full physical exams, vaccines, deworming, are spayed or neutered prior to adoption and behaviorally evaluated to ensure a proper adoption match for each new home. Our goal is to have each pet have a long term loving adopted family. We seek every opportunity to improve out medical, behavioral and compassionate care for each animal. WAGS and the local community have to advocate for these small and large creatures that have no voice, we know this is our ultimate responsibility.
Our mission is to provide the best quality of care, advocacy and shelter for lost and homeless animals seeking new permanent loving homes. Our values are low euthanasia rates, permanent placement, advocacy, safe shelter, respected volunteers and continuous improvement to all services provided. WAGS wants to safeguard the animals, volunteers and our community. We will strive to be not only an animal adoption service but a community resource for the people of Westminster and surrounding communities.
