Pet Dental Health

Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems.

Become a Volunteer at Wishbone Canine Rescue

To find out more about pet dental health, read the complete American Veterinary Medical Association's article by clicking here. 

We have many opportunities available for volunteers, whether it involves contact with the dogs, doing office work, volunteering at events or data entry from your home.  

Dogs who may otherwise be destroyed at an overcrowded shelter are temporarily placed with you, their foster family, until a forever family is found. 


Pet Adoption

Our mission is based on Nathan Winograd's No Kill Philosophy, which states that all healthy and treatable homeless animals have the right to live.
