Meet Sarge! An adorable 12-month old male Pitbull German Shepherd mix who ended up on the euthanasia list in a California shelter for having kemnel cough. Watch his video to see him play with a male and female dog... he's so friendly with dogs! When he went to the vet though, he was very scared. He had to be brought out on a catch pole and the people weren't very compassionate with him. Once he got to his foster home in Seattle, he started to come out of his shell... Foster Update: Sarge was very scared when he got off of transport but he has adjusted quite well in his foster home. He is currently bunking with two large male dogs and gets along well with them as well as all dogs he meets. He greets dogs with a loose relaxed wag. He is a young energetic dog - 1 year old - and his DNA test revealed he is 1/2 Pitbull and also has some German Shepherd and Husky in him. His coat is lab like, and he will need brushing. He really enjoyed his bath in his foster home. He likes to run around and play with toys and chew on bones. He does very well in the crate (quiet: no barking) and is house-trained now! Sarge is nervous about meeting strangers -- he will growl a little bit and needs new people to let him come to then. We are working on this with confidence-building and desensitization. He is an absolute love bug in our home and very affectionate to us! He will do well with a confident owner who can give him a lot of love, exercise, training, and affection. Young and healthy - 1-year old or younger - neutered male Well-mannered and appropriate with other dogs Ignores cats Beautiful coat will require regular brushing Healthy energetic lab like personality Lacking confidence, cautious and fearful meeting new people Crate trained and house-trained -- quiet in the crate Walks well on a leash - not leash reactive Adoption Info: Sarge is neutered, up to date on all his vaccinations, microchipped and in good health. His adoption fee is $450 and that includes all of his veterinary care, transport costs from California and Seattle, and goes to support the rescue of other animals that need to be saved. Please email email@example.com if you would like to meet Sarge.
Ginger’s Pet Rescue is one of the largest non-profit pet rescue organizations in Washington state, and we specialize in saving Death Row Dogs. Our mission is to give homeless animals with no hope the life they deserve through rescue, foster and adoption. We rely on a large network of fosters in the Seattle area, who provide our dogs with love and care during transition from rescue to adoption. We do not have a physical shelter location; to meet the dogs in our rescue, contact us to connect with a foster or join us at an adoption event!
Ginger’s Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We rely solely on the support from adoption fees and donations to help us provide for the ~100+ dogs in our rescue at any given time.
How We Rescue
We take in dogs from local families in need, in state and out of state shelters, and we also work with overseas rescue groups on occasion. We do not discriminate – we rescue dogs small and big, old and young, healthy and sick, purebred and Heinz 57! Our belief is that every dog deserves a forever home. Our History
Ginger’s Pet Rescue was founded in 2006 by Ginger Luke after saving one Dachshund’s life turned into a life-long endeavor. The organization is dedicated to providing great care for our dogs and adoption efforts!
Come Meet Our Pets...
Ginger's Pet Rescue has all our dogs in foster care.
You must complete an application and then you can meet the dogs by appointment with the foster dog parents.
You may also come to one of our adoption events to meet our adoptable dogs and fill out an application in person: www.gingerspetrescue.org/events
Our Adoption Process...
The first step to adopting a pet from Ginger’s Pet Rescue is completing our Adoption Application and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit via our Contact Form on our website. This application will allow us to know more about your family, what kind of pet will fit best and your home, and whether you will be a good match for one of our dogs. Please include the dog(s) you are interested in on the application. We review applications upon receipt and will reply as soon as possible, usually within 1-2 days.
Adoption fees range from $300-$700 depending on a number of the factors, and adoption fees are what allow us to continue our rescue, as our primary source of funding.
If for any reason the dog does not work out, we are willing to take the dog back and refund your adoption fee less a $100 rehoming fee.
