Stop by the WTFR booth to meet some of our fosters available for adoption or sign up to become a foster home to help by taking in an animal in need!! Without fosters, we wouldn't be able to help animals like these get the second chance they deserve!!
While you're visiting our current fosters, check out the stories of our former fosters who are now living their best lives with their furever families!
Be sure to stop by our axe throwing lane; not only can you oractice your throws, but you can also win some great prizes while doing so! All proceeds from Axe throwing go directly to the animal rescue!
Always a great stop, be sure to stop by our silent auction tent to see what items you could be lucky enough to win! Changes every year, but never fails to impress those looking to donate and get a little something in return! This year's auction will actually be online, with QR codes to help guide everyone directly to items you'd like to bid on. Bidding opens at 11am, same at the Bark Party, and will close one week later, Nov 11th at 12pm. Sunday, Nov 12th, will be pickup day down in Wilmington, or items NOT INCLUDING alcohol, can be shipped for an additional fee. Best of luck y'all!
