Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
I go to pre-schools & day cares as often as possible with a pound pet & explain to kids, animals have feelings, you would be HORRIFIED at how many don't even know that!!! I tell them about fixing their pets, the importance of spaying neutering & about the dogs & cats no one wants that get sent to heaven when they were supposed to be here because their people didn't care for them.
I pull seniors & sick dogs from shelters, the general public, & even off of craigslist on occasion & adopt them out for the cost of vet care if I cant afford it or take the seniors down to retirement communities so the people can have a doggie that they can handle that hopefully won't outlive them & it increases their health by a thousand times over, they take their meds, get out for walks & socialize more & they make new friends who don't have doggies yet, or friends that do.
I foster for people in domestic violence, homeless or military situations so their families can stay together.
I round up dog food & donations & share with other rescues when I can
I do free shot, & dewormer clinics for low income & homeless people, & on occasion provide food donated from Local Pet Pro's or Mud Bays!
I go to the fields & orchards & try to educate the migrant workers about spays & neuters & give them shots & deworm the dogs, I also make myself available in case they are going to just leave the dogs which they usually do when the picking season is over
I provide flea treatments for free for anyone who asks for them.
I take the dogs no one wants which leaves room open at the shelters & in other rescues
I go beg pet stores for adoption fair space & then share it with other rescues so they have a spot to go to as well
I transport dogs from all over to other rescues to get them out of shelters
I help people find dogs that are realistic for their lifestyles & living situations
I help people with training their dogs & behavioral problems so that we can keep more dogs in their homes
I drive dogs & cats to spay & neuter appts & pick them up for low income or housebound people.
I do end of life & respite care, for senior & terminally ill dogs
I am one person but I work with many other rescues around the country, the Humane Societies in this state, Oregon, Idaho & Montana, & with lots of other animal advocates. We are just trying to help do what we can to save lives, we don't expect to get rich or even try to break even but our hearts are always full. We gladly take donations of any kind. Supplies, volunteers, Cash or gift cards are always needed! We previously operated with a business license, & are in good standing with the state, we are now a Non-Profit Corporation in the state of Washington... 501(c)3 to be coming soon!
*** Don't forget if you run a daycare, or are a school teacher we do classes to educate youngsters on the importance of spaying, neutering, & proper dog care, the visits are always age appropriate & if you have kids with allergies we have pictures instead of pets we can bring!
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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
