We are sorry to announce that WAGS has currently suspended adding any new facilities from our greater Louisville area simply because we need more teams to sign up their certified pets.  There are over 53 facilities that have not been filled by any WAGS TEAMS.  The Board is committed to matching as many of these facilities as possible.  When we find additional sign ups to be on the increase we will again open up Facility requests from new facilities.

Computer training for Web & Neon



We just finished 2 training sessions at the Membership meeting.  We helped members to use the Web and enter  their Personal WAGS  Neon Account.  Look for Anita Kotheimer and Linda Carden next month to do this again.  We are giving advice and offering help with Log in difficulties. We will repeat this TECH HELP DESK at the next meeting in July.

We encourage you to learn on our computer module then practice at home if your device of choice is your phone.  Phones are more difficult to navigate. Computers can view the entire Web site much better.  Internet Explorer is the worst browser! Safari is so so, but Google Chrome is the best browser.  If you are confused seek out Linda Carden for a lesson!

Be READY to have this information:

  1. e-mail address

  2. preferred password with at least one number

  3. understand or be ready to learn “CHROME” as your internet browser (Google Chrome is the best internet browser to see our WEB site)

We want your experience to be positive since every effort that you put into WAGS makes us a better Organization!

If you cannot make the meeting e-mail Linda Carden and she  will send documents that address the difficulty that you have encountered.

What is Neon?

Neon is our Volunteer management data base.  Everyone is being asked learn to use the system in order to enter and keep your profile current  so that you may be contacted.   Listed in your account is your name, current e-mail address, phone contact information, and more. You will be able to find the date to renew your membership, pay your dues and the re-certification date for your pet. Also listed will be your volunteer facilities (these may need some updating if you do not see yours contact Larry Curtis)

Another important function of NEON is to record all of the Volunteer hours that you as a member give to the community. These hours are necessary to receive larger donations, grants, and contributions. We want this data to be available for our 20th year Celebration event.

  2. or our neon link
  3. You can find the instruction in your past newsletters at the bottom of the right hand corner. Once you have logged into For Member’s Only you will be able to see the special section dedicated to NEON in bright yellow:
