Just in time for Christmas, the new Woof Gang Rescue greeting center will officially open Thursday with an open house Dec. 4 to show off the new space.

Located at 1535 Layard Avenue, the new WGR meet-and-greet center will host events for folks looking to add a dog to their family.

Founder and President Jodie Hoffman told Racine County Eye the center will open its doors Thursday, and the community is invited to see the space from noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 4.

Visitors should be prepared to potentially add a new furmember to their family, though. Dogs and puppies available for adoption will be on site.

Santa will also be on hand to take photos with kids and/or animals.

In addition to hosting special adoption events, the center will also serve as a connection space where families can get to know their prospective furbabies.

Just because the center is up and running doesn’t mean Hoffman and her network of 150 foster families don’t still need help. Woof Gang Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3), so donations are tax deductible and can be completed through PayPal.
