Founded in 2011 by Lesley Brog, Wags & Walks is a community of dog lovers working to decrease the number of dogs euthanized in local shelters. Lesley is the daughter of a veterinarian who was devastated by the number of sweet and healthy dogs being euthanized due to overcrowding in LA shelters. Since the organization’s inception in 2011, Wags & Walks has saved more than 4,500 dogs, and continues to save more and more every day.
