About Our Rescue Group...
R.E.D. (Rescue Every Dog) is a support group for public animal shelters. The public animal shelters we support do not have the necessary staff or funding to provide adequate space, medical care and adoption capability for the number of animals they receive. Saving highly-adoptable companion animals that are to be euthanized in such shelters is R.E.D.'s top priority. We also assist ownerless adoptable companion animals when possible, who are in high-risk situations due to no fault of their own, and medically needy adoptable companion animals.
For the animals we rescue, we provide the safe haven of home foster care, medical care, and spay/neutering while our volunteers seek loving lifetime homes for them. Some of the animals in high-risk euthanasia situations that we are unable to foster can receive assistance from R.E.D. Alert, which publicizes their plight and searches for alternate rescue solutions via the Internet.
R.E.D. is staffed by volunteers who provide transportation, medical care, home foster care, and training for the animals R.E.D. assists. All R.E.D. foster dogs, puppies, cats, kittens are spayed and neutered before they go to adoptive homes. R.E.D. volunteers also provide education and community support on such topics as the benefits of spay/neuter, re-homing advice and assistance, and prevention of animal abuse and neglect.
Donations to R.E.D. are used to pay the direct costs of R.E.D.'s animal care, promotion and placement. When ever possible, some donations are used to assist animals and low income owners with low cost and no cost spay and neuter. R.E.D. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and donations to R.E.D. are tax-deductible.

R.E.D. companion animals are located in home foster care all over Washington State. Most Animals are in the King, Pierce and Kitsap areas. However, they can be in any county in Washington State and sometimes Oregon. All Animals are seen by appointment only by applicants that have complete the online application and been phone interviewed with a positive outcome. Home visits are done either before or after a meet and greet with the animal and the animal's caseworker or foster parent. If you wish to apply to adopt , please go to www.rescueeverydog.org, look under adoption for the online application. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question or want to check status of an animal, (keep in mind with this delay in submitting an application, you may miss the opportunity to apply while waiting for our email status response. Generally, the animals seen on the adoption page are available for application.) R.E.D. will adopt to states near Washington and to parts of Canada. However, R.E.D. does not adopt animals out of state/country with out a one on one meeting and we do not ever air ship animals . Out of state adoptions are possible but the adopter must be willing to travel to the companion animal's location for an in person meet and greet. The home visit requirement must also be met.
