Wags 4 Tags
Total Source Realty is a proud supporter of Wags 4 Tags!
Wags 4 Tags’ objective is three-fold:
i.) RESCUE DOGS FROM KILL SHELTERS:
North Carolina has the highest pet euthanasia rate in the United States; therefore it is our objective to save as many dogs as possible by giving them a purpose through skilled, compassionate specialized training.
ii.) HELP OUR VETERANS SUFFERING FROM PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EMOTIONAL INJURIES BY PAIRING THEM WITH TRAINED DOGS RESCUED FROM KILL SHELTERS ACROSS NORTH CAROLINA:
North Carolina not only has 5 large Military Bases, 5 VA Hospitals, 13 Outpatient VA Centers, but the 3th largest military population in the United States; therefore it is our objective to serve as many veterans suffering psychological and emotional impairments and disabilities such as PTSD, TBI, depression, anxiety by providing them with canines that have undergone specialized training and that “understand”. Depending on the level of specialized trained required, the dogs will be trained to pass the AKC’s Canine Good Citizenship Test or as an Emotional Support Dog (with Letter of Certification). Wags 4 Tags Training Academy holds classes every Monday afternoon.
iii.) ENGAGE OUR GENEROUS COMMUNITY TO THANK OUR VETERANS:
According to two national sources(1) North Carolina is among the top 10 “Most Generous States” in America; therefore it is our objective to reach out and engage as many people as possible in this valuable endeavor. We are honored that we have worked with Nursing Homes, Teen Clubs, businesses, Rotary Clubs, the USO of NC, and the NC Veterans of Foreign Wars and countless individuals who have shown that they too, “have not forgotten” or pets or our Vets.
