 The charm retails for $14.95, with 50% percent of profits will go to rescue organizations. Celebrity dog enthusiasts Betty White, Kristin Chenoweth, Danielle Fishelle and many more have shown support for WagAware and its mission is to raise substantial awareness and funds to help dogs in need and, ultimately, to help reduce the mass euthanasia of healthy, adoptable dogs in the US every year.

The charm is lightweight, noiseless and glows in the dark.  Visit for more information.
