Meet Thelma!

Thelma is about 11 months old, rescued from Iran of all places. She was in a horrific situation and we are so glad she has been rescued. She is a Persian beauty. 

She is medium in size, and loves other dogs. She is extremely playful and has a ton of energy so will need a very active family as her breed denotes daily exercise so if you walk, run or hike, she will love it. 

Thelma likes people but can be timid at first  She is more careful with men than with women. She will relax when she gets into a great home to love her. She loves cuddle time. Thelma does have some separation anxiety and needs someone who is home more than not or that wants to take her places. Kids are OK for Thelma but we recommend kids over 14 because of Thelma's high energy nature. 

She is not suitable for apartment living and has very high exercise needs. She can easily go for a 3-4 mile run and still come back for more. This is typical for Border Collies and they need to kept active and stimulated in order to not feel frustrated. 

A precious border mix with a full life ahead of her. Anyone will be lucky to have her!

She has now been spayed, updated on all shots and vet checked.  Her adopt fee is $395.

About Saving Great Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving Great Animals is a match-making rescuer. We have no public facility. We work individually to do our best in matching your desires and lifestyle to the best animal pal. We love what we do! We are Seattle-based but have representatives in all parts of Washington state and the Pacific Northwest.

We are volunteer-based and everyone in our rescue works full time at paying careers,

Saving Great Animals has been working tirelessly as a no-kill, foster-based rescue for the last 9 years. We also are connected to a wide network of foster homes and numerous shelters around the state to find permanent homes for animals that are deserving of love and a family. Many of the dogs and cats we rescue would otherwise face unecessary euthanization.

We also work hard to bring dogs and cats into SGA directly from their former home so they animals will never enter the shelter system which has environments that can be very stressful for them, even though we know so many shelter workers who are tireless too in helping the animals.

A very small percentage of our dogs come to us from our sister-shelter in Taiwan, where these dogs are typically rescued from deplorable circumstances.

All of our pets available for foster or adoption also are listed on PetFinder at (
