Paws with a Purpose

After a fun day with family, this special is a great way to wrap up a Thanksgiving day with inspiring and funny stories of rescue dogs. Additionally, the best viral videos featuring rescue dogs will be show. Celebrities will hand out many awards to dogs, and viewers will be given information to help with adoptable animals in their own area. During this two-hour event, viewers will be given a special opportunity to donate to rescue organizations throughout the United States.

Wigglebutt Warriors

Dog rescue and fundraising for dogs in need is a topic near and dear to our hearts, with the formation of Wigglebutt Warriors. This Thanksgiving, and always, we are grateful for those who helped us raise 30K for OBG Cocker Rescue in 2014 with Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof. The year ahead and beyond means more fundraising, more creativity, more lives saved, and look forward to the “Ten Dollar Dog of the Day” throughout December.

  1. I will be glued to the television and it won’t be for the football games! (mostly) It is great to see these celebrities bring awareness to adopting. Thanks for the information.

  2. Where can I write to John, the California to Canada, Dog Transporter that won an award on your show?
    I would like to make donations for gasoline for him monthly.

    Please advise

  3. I was excited about this show & loved it. It was well done, a lot of fun, & a great way to get dogs into loving homes. But one thing made me bristle; their continued use of the phrase “when you BUY a dog you KILL a shelter dog”. That was uncalled for. People are entitled to RESPONSIBLY acquire the dog of their dreams. We educate people to make shelters/rescues their first stop but buying a dog from a RESPONSIBLE breeder isn’t a crime. When a young couple came to the shelter asking if we had any “French bulldog puppies” (yeah, right) I did my best to showcase several other small dogs but their hearts were set a Frenchie puppy. I wouldn’t guilt or coerce anyone into adopting a dog they didn’t want. That’s isn’t right, isn’t fair, & may result in the dog being returned. I steered the couple toward French Bulldog & Bulldog rescue groups, & away from going to a pet store on the way home. Educating ALL dog owners to be accountable for their animals is the best solution to pet homelessness & overcrowded shelters. Ideally, shelters & rescues should be the first stop when acquiring a dog, but buying from a RESPONSIBLE breeder shouldn’t be thought of with disdain. The real disdain belongs w/ irresponsible dog ownership & the mess left in it’s wake in the form of abandoned pets & overcrowded shelters. There is NO acceptable reason for nearly 8 million pets to end up in U.S. shelters in the first place. Sorry 4 the long winded comment, Carol, I had to share my feedback on the one troubling aspect of an otherwise fantastic show.

    1. I totally understand and agree. And my dog came from a very reputable breeder and I have adopted, will again, and my heart is in all things dog. Thanks for sharing!

      1. Same here, my Husky came from a breeder while every other dog & cat I’ve ever owned was a stray or shelter pet. I have 2 furkids; one from the shelter I volunteer at & the other from a reputable breeder. I wasn’t able to find a Husky puppy at my shelter or Husky rescue at the time. Thanks Carol!
