As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization Wet Nose Rescue relies on donations to provide services for homeless dogs. These donations can be in the form of money, volunteer time, and goods. Please check our “Wish List” below to see if you can help.
About UsWet Nose Rescue was founded in 2008 as an all breed dog rescue, with the aim of trying to find homes for the countless numbers of dogs and puppies that are left homeless through no faults of there own. We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, made up totally of volunteers and licensed by the State of Pennsylvania. Wet Nose Rescue depends soley on public contributions for support.
We mainly work with shelters in the south that are over crowded and transport dogs to this area about once every two weeks. Wet Nose Rescue is totally foster based and even though we have an adoption center, we don't kennel our dogs, instead once they come from the shelter, they have an opportunity to become socialized with a family, that very often has other dogs in its home. The family cares for the dog or puppy until as if it were their own, until a home is found.
Wet Nose Rescue tries to do as many public and community oriented events as possible. Each Spring we hold our annual Wet Nose Rescue Pet Fair at Warminster Community Park, the last Saturday in April. In 2015 we will be holding our fouth annual fair. We also do events such as The John Debella Dog Walk and L'Oreal Rescue Bingo. Each December, we hold a Christmas party at our adoption center and all are invited “Walking In A Furry Wonderland” and each Spring we hold a Beef and Beer, our Furry Leprechaun Bash right around Saint Patricks Day.

Did you know that a donation of $1 buys a days worth of food for a dog that has nothing, a $2 donation buys a collar, a $5 donation buys a Bordatella shot which prevents kennel cough, a $15 donation buys a set of vaccinations for a puppy, a $25 donation buys a snap test which checks for Lyme Disease and Heartworm. Small donations of this type are so important to us.
Did you know that a donation of $60 buys a Kuranda Bed, which is a special bed elevated off the ground so a dog or puppy doesn't have to lay on the cold floor or wet ground in a shelter. A $100 donation allows Wet Nose Rescue to pay for health certification and transportation to safe a life. $135 pays for spaying or neutering. $500 to $800 donation pays for Heartworm treatment for Heartworm positive dogs.
Please don't think every dollar doesn't count, because it does.
