Welcome to Wags for Hope!

Wags for Hope (WFH) is a non-profit organization that provides volunteers with their pets to bring joy to the lives of others. We visit Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, Hospitals and with Hospice. In addition, we supply local libraries and schools with certified R.E.A.D.® teams, who are using their animals as a conduit to help improve the literacy skills of the children in our community. We aspire to be a “one-stop shopping” organization supplying animal visitations for therapy purposes needed in Frederick, MD, and the surrounding areas.

We are always seeking volunteers who would like to contribute a little of their time each month with their pets. How much time you devote is strictly up to you. We would prefer a handler willing to offer a minimum of two visits per month. You may be surprised how much you and your pet(s) will benefit from this. We welcome folks without pets too!
