Kona is a beautiful 2-year-old female Black Labrador retriever mix who was picked up as a "stray" in San Bernadino County and no one came for her. She ended up in a high-kill shelter and we pulled her -- now she's on her way to Seattle, and headed to a foster home. She will be available for adoption shortly.

Foster Update: Kona is a sweet girl who seeks affection and craves human attention. She is very smart and playful, equally content to play in the yard or curl up on the couch with you. She does well with other dogs as long as there is a pack leader to manage the interactions, otherwise she can be a bit possessive over resources. She walks well on a leash and is not leash reactive though she can be timid of scary things like loud noises; she's also still learning how to go up and down stairs, in and out of cars -- needs a bit of encouragement with new experiences. She is interested in the cat but with additional training it could probably be managed. She needs a dog savvy owner who can give her the love and attention she needs. Preferably one with a secure yard, as she knows how to open doors, gate latches, etc. Yup, she's a smart cookie! She is house-trained, too!

Adoption Info: Kona's adoption fee is $495. This includes her spay, all vaccinations, health certificate, transport from California to Seattle, and microchipping. Adoption fees fund our rescue and support the rescue of all dogs in our care. Ginger's Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

This dog was just saved from a high-kill shelter in California and is on their way to Seattle to find their forever home.

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!

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.
