Peek Inside the New Wags & Walks Adoption Center


Been to a bark-tastic, cuddle-kissy, snout-sweet adoption festival in the past few years? You may have seen Wags & Walks there, or at other locations around the region, like The Original Farmers Market at Third & Fairfax. The nearly 7-year-old rescue organization has gone to many places around Southern California to match many happy humans with home-needing hounds, but there hasn't yet been a main adoption center for the busy group of animal supporters.

That all changes starting on Saturday, Jan. 27 in West Los Angeles when Wags & Walks cuts the ribbon on its first-ever center. ASPCA is stopping by to join the ceremony, and some LA Kings representatives, too. Will there be food? The Word of Mouth food truck will be nearby. Plus? Count on "(p)et & people-friendly vendors" at the noon to 4 p.m. party, so do browse. But, most of all, make time to meet some of the adoptable dogs who will also be there, searching each face for their forever person. Want a look inside the facility, which is located at 2236 Federal Ave.? Here's a preview...

Unlike Jax Taylor, the dog Jax featured today probably can’t make you a pumptini, but he can definitely wear a backwards Taco Bell sweatshirt, as long as you purchase and style it for him. He comes to us from Wags and Walks. Based in Los Angeles, Wags and Walks is a rescue that prides itself on being a community of dog lovers first, focused on family-friendly foster and adoption programs for dogs. They concentrate on selecting their dogs based on temperament to ensure successful adoptions and that they have. Among their many success stories includes an impressive roster of celebrity fans and adoptive pet parents.

And now meet the cast of Shelterpup Rules, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines! (Okay, we know that Vanderpump Rules doesn’t have taglines, but play along with us.)
