Peep 2.jpg

Peep is our #28th success story! 

Founded in 2008, this program has successfully placed over 120 dogs in Austin, Big Spring, Del Rio, and Eagle Pass! Adopting a dog from a shelter can be a challenge. Evaluating an animal's personality in a shelter is difficult due to many factors.  The stress and boredom of being in a kennel can cause behavior problems to develop, and dogs in shelters are more prone to infectious diseases.

Recognizing these challenges, we have developed a series of medical and behavioral examinations for each Wags to Riches Adoptee. After candidates have passed a thorough examination, they are available for adoption. The $150 adoption fee includes all services listed below.

  • Medical Examination

  • Blood parasite test

  • Heartworm test

  • Spayed or neutered

  • Dental exam and cleaning

  • Administer to any special needs

  • Behavioral Assessment

  • One-week in-home observation

  • Interaction with other dogs

  • Dog/child interaction

  • Food aggressive evaluation

  • Separation anxiety


If you or someone you know is interested in adopting a special pet, call us to ask about our current Wags to Riches adoptee!

"We are so excited to be able to continue the Wags to Riches program in Eagle Pass. It holds such a special place in our hearts and is central to the culture of the Veterinary Diagnostic Hospitals of Texas."


—  Leslee Hurwitz, Wags to Riches founder
