WMAW is licensed with PACFA as an Animal Rescue #002JJV
We are a foster based animal rescue. We can assist in re-homing animals for their owners. We are also here to help keep animals in their homes with education, animal welfare resources and connecting people with animal professionals.
Lost and Found Pets
We assist in the quick reunion of animals and their owners when pets get lost. Our Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/WetMountainAnimalWelfare/) is open to all for Lost & Found postings. We also offer low-cost Micro Chipping and free checks for existing chips and registration or updating of chip information in a national microchip registry (More Information). We are not a shelter (yet) so we can not take in stray animals (yet). The nearest shelter is in Fremont County.
