About Our Rescue Group:

Our Mission: Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue is a non-profit referral organization dedicated to placing unwanted purebred dogs into suitable homes, and preventing unwanted purebreds from overloading the shelter system. Towards attaining those goals, we promote responsible dog ownership by educating the public in the selection, care and training of dogs. Founded as a non-political organization in 1987, SPDR works cooperatively with breeders, animal shelters, breed clubs, and individuals to accomplish SPDR's purpose.

Our Adoption Process:

A person who wants to adopt through SPDR fills out an Adoption Application and carefully reviews SPDRs Terms of Adoption. The application and a $5.00, nonrefundable processing fee are then mailed to SPDRs post office box. The paperwork will be sent from the post office box to the appropriate breed rep(s). The processing fee helps to cover the immediate costs of handling your paperwork. However, if we are successful in helping find a dog for you, we ask that you make a further, tax-deductible donation. The usual adoption donation is in the $50-$200 range. Your breed rep may discuss a specific amount with you, based on the dog you adopt. SPDR is a registered Washington State charity and a 501 3 organization, and depends on such donations to continue operating. Our Board members and breed reps are volunteers, and receive no compensation for the time they spend helping you find a dog.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
