Patience is a gorgeous 3-year-old Husky Border Collie mix who ended up in the yard of our rescue partner in California. We think she was dumped by her owners as she had no microchip and no one came for her. Our rescue partner couldn't bear to bring her to the shelter and reached out to us for help in placing her. She is arriving on Saturday, October 15th and will go into a foster home. She is potentially available for adoption off transport to the right home, pending an approved adoption application, since we already know quite a bit about her personality.

Patience is an energetic, enthusiastic fun-loving dog who would love to join an active family. She is very high energy so she would do best without small kids in the home. She is only 37 lbs and is a healthy girl. She loves to go-go-go. She wants to be with her people all the time. She may do okay with other dogs, but would probably prefer to be the only dog in the home. She has not been tested around cats. Patience would like a big secure yard to play in as well. This girl is quite loyal, affectionate and incredibly intelligent. She is a border collie Husky mix, so a lot of activity will be important for her.

We are looking for a foster home to care for this dog with a minimum 10-day commitment to help us asses the dog's personality and best fit in a forever home. We cover all veterinary expenses and can also reimburse for food for provide supplies, if necessary. Fosters have the first option to adopt with an approved application!

If you can help, please email ASAP!

Medical Info: Patience is up to date on all vaccinations and has a health certificate. She will need to be spayed/microchipped within 10 days of arrival. 

Adoption Info: Patience's adoption fee is $495. This includes her spay, transport from California, and all vaccinations, health certificate, and microchipping. Adoption fees help cover rescue expenses for all dogs in our care. Ginger's Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

About Ginger's Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

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:

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to adopting a pet from Ginger’s Pet Rescue is completing our Adoption Application and email to 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.
