Each month during the Year of the Dog, Mr. Wigglebottom's selects a rescue or animal charity to receive a donation based on a portion of our sales. All sales from May 1 - June 30, 2018 will go to P.E.T.S. Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic in Wichita Falls, Texas to assist P.E.T.S. with the care of dogs in the Underdog Express program.
P.E.T.S. was founded 10 years ago to provide low cost sterilization as well as preventive vet care. They have grown to incorporate the P.E.T.S. Pantry Program which provides pet food to pet owners temporarily down on their luck financially to allow them to keep their pets; ChainOffWF which builds fences for chained dogs every weekend allowing pet owners to get their dogs off chains (it is now against city ordinance so owners must unchain or give up dogs); and Underdog Express. Underdog Express gets most of their foster dogs' vetting done through P.E.T.S. which makes it affordable for the group to save more dogs. P.E.T.S. standing as a 10-year-old successful nonprofit has made it possible to obtain grants to help with some vetting costs for the program. Underdog Express has sent well over 1,600 dogs from the Wichita Falls, TX area to Dewitt, NY (near Syracuse) since they joined the Love On Wheels program 4 years ago this summer. The program has been a literal lifesaver to the dogs and has even allowed one small community, Electra, to reach "No Kill" status.
