Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Welcome to Rain City Rescue!
We are a small group of volunteers who primarily exist to rescue and dogs from high-kill shelters and place them with families that match with the animals’ personalities to provide the best possible home for the animals! We occasionally can assist with owner surrenders on a case by case basis. We are advocates for spay and neuter in our communities and can provide resources to owners who need assistance with their pets in various ways. We treat all the rescued animals in our care as our pets. We are a network of foster homes. Medical care, high-end food, toys, training, exercise, socialization and warm beds are provided. All animals we adopt out will be spayed or neutered, up to date with vaccines and micro chipped.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small group of animal lovers who couldn’t “click off” email pleas any longer . We just started saying YES to dogs in need. Followed by amazing cats in need. We are not breed specific, but do love our Pits and Pit mixes who are always the last in the shelters and first in our hearts. We have connected with great trainers, super adopters and people within the rescue community to build a strong network to help these animals. But we are “DOING IT” and “LOVING IT”. Unlike others, we just jumped in and later decided to talk about it!!

Come Meet our Pets:

Our dogs and cats are in foster care and boarding mainly in Federal Way and Redmond as well as several foster homes around the Puget Sound area. Please contact us to arrange a meeting! We also have cats available at Simply Paws, a local Natural Pet Supply, Boarding, Grooming, and Daycare. www.simplypaws.com.

Our Adoption Process:

For our dogs, our process starts first with an adoption application. Our dog adoption application includes references, vet info, home photos and proof of home ownership or landlord contact. Our requirements vary per dog, but look closely at fenced yard, time away, previous pets, current pets etc.. During that time they may also have a visit or long conversation (depending upon the situation of the dog, if warranted) with one of our professional trainers. We deliver the dogs with their quality food, treats, all vet records, training material, resources,etc. We encourage and often require additional training. We keep in communication with our fosters and adopters. We try to do the most to set everyone up to succeed. We are upfront about their commitment, training & responsibilities Adoption fees for our dogs and puppies range from $200 - $500. Great people are certainly out there for our dogs because we are having very good success. The cat adoption process is similar but not as involved. We have a shortened application process. Adoption fees for cats range from $50 - $120. At any time the animal can be returned to us if it doesn't work out. The adoption fees cover a portion of the expenses in spay/neuter, vet care, foster care and boarding for some dogs.

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, 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.
