Meet Gus! Gus was found cold, skinny and alone in a parking lot. He looked like he had been on the run for a quite some time. We are not sure if he was dumped or somehow separated from his owner, but all attempts at finding his owner failed. Now Gus needs a loving home to lie down his weary head.

Gus is just under 8 years old and a lab mix. His foster has lovingly fattened him up and he is now healthy and doing well. Gus is a shy boy and it takes him some time to warm up to people. He likes to watch what is going on from a distance and enjoys sleeping in his warm bed or on a corner of the couch. He likes being petted but is unsure at first. Once he trusts you, he is happy with some nice ear scratches or back rubs. He doesn't seek out affection.

He gets along well with other dogs but not with cats.

We think he will do best in a home without children or lots of coming and going. Gus likes things quiet and predictable.

We'd love to see this lost boy in a home once again.

He is now vaccinated, neutered and ready to be loved. His adoption fee is $195, often matched by employers, so please do check!

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 (http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/WA418.html).

To contact SGA directly, please email info@savinggreatanimals.org.


If you are interested in fostering or volunteering, we want to hear from you! We are finalizing our 501 C-3 status; and do appreciate any and all donations as 100% of our funds, every penny, goes to the animals. We are always extremely tight on funds, frequently dipping into our own pockets. All donations can be paid by paypal by sending to perrin@savinggreatanimals.org
