Dear Friends and Supporters:

Wags & Whiskers (formerly Concerned Citizens for Animal Care of Warren County (CCAC) was formed in 2001 by a group of animal lovers with a goal of building an animal shelter to serve the needs of our pets of Warren County.  The board began fundraising and, with your support, our first goal of $150,000 was met in 2018.   After years of searching for an appropriate location, the owners of Innsbrook Resort sold Wags & Whiskers a two acre parcel of land at 13620 State Highway M, near the intersection of Highways F and M, a great location!  After moving forward with the purchase of land and the development of plans for a shelter, the Board of Directors voted to change the name from CCAC to Wags & Whiskers.

The name of our organization will also be the name of our shelter and one that we feel will focus on our mission of caring for our dogs and cats.......Wags & Whiskers!  On September 21, 2022, the Village of Innsbrook Board of Trustees issued a special use permit to allow construction to begin on the site.  On October 21, 2022, purchase of the land was completed, setting the stage for the shelter groundbreaking on November 12, 2022.  Construction of the shelter (Phase 1) began on January 4, 2023 and was completed in April, 2023.  Funds raised in the future will allow us to complete the interior of the building, help us continue our work in the community by providing low cost microchips and vaccinations, and open the shelter to help lost area pets return home or find new homes.

We have re-launched our capital campaign to get us to the finish line and allow us to start helping the pets of Warren County in our new shelter.  Please click on the "Capital Campaign" and "Donate" pages here to see how you can contribute to our cause.  Please follow our progress on social media.
