About Our Rescue Group:

Dog Rescue Around Washington was formed in 2004 by four women involved in rescue who have likeminded values and passion for the dogs in crisis in the world. We do not have a shelter but rely on volunteer foster homes. Almost all of our dogs are hand picked from surrounding shelters, dogs at risk of euthanasia. Our goal is to put as many temperamentally sound dogs into responsible homes as possible. To achieve that goal, we take our time getting to know each adoptable dog, socializing and training them as needed. We see to any medical need from the basics to the extreme.

We specialize in dogs that are particularly at risk due to age, breed, or overpopulation. Many of our dogs are in our rescue simply because no one else wanted them.

We consider those who have adopted from us, family. We are here to help for life. Adopting from us gives you someone to call in crisis, someone to offer advice and assistance. Even though your new dog now belongs to you, we feel it is our responsibility to stand by you to make your dogs life with you a success.

Come Meet our Pets:

By Appointment only. We are a group of private foster homes throughout western Washington.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption application to be filled out completely and verified before any of our pets are met. Then we proceed with arranging a meet and greet and home check. We require fenced yards and agreement of all family members as a pet is the responsibility of the whole family.

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.
