Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Lifesavers Rescue, a WASHINGTON STATE NON-PROFIT, has adopted to people from 5 states and Canada. All foster dogs are kept in homes and not in crates or kennels. When old enough, all dogs are spayed or neutered before adoption and are also vaccinated, wormed and micro-chipped. If the pups are too small or too young, a pre-paid spay/neuter receipt is required from your local veterinarian.
We do not adopt dogs out to people who are only wanting an outside dog.
Fenced yards are usually mandatory for the safety of the dog.

About Our Rescue Group:

Lifesavers Rescue is a very small rescue with just a couple of foster homes. We have most of the dogs in our home so we can assess their behavior and personality and to continue socializing and training them.
The dogs live, play, eat and drink with many other dogs and we try to help them become well balanced dogs.
We, as rescue, cannot do everything for and with a dog, so know that continued training and socialization and of course LOVING is the responsibility of the adopting people.

Come Meet our Pets:

To see any of our foster dogs, an adoption application must be completed and approved prior to the visit.

Our Adoption Process:

Each dog has their own adoption fee so fees can differ. This is based on breed and age of dog and also any medical expenses that might have gone into the dog that was out of the normal expenses. Lifesavers Rescue adoption donations are quite fair as our goal is to find a safe and loving home for each foster dog.
There is a adoption contract that must be signed and this is part of the beginning adoption process. Requirements are listed and must be agreed to.
All dogs are guaranteed and if the adopting family is not happy with their dog, and have worked with the dog for at least a month, Lifesavers will take the dog back and refund the adoption donation in most cases.

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.
