We require you to fill out our adoption application to help us to get to know you, your living situation and what you are looking for in a pet.

It is imperative that you complete the entire application and be 100% open and honest. We do verify information on the application such as residence status, veterinarian reference etc. Only applicants that are best suited for the animal will be considered and will proceed to the next step of the adoption process.

We do adopt to out of state adopters, however, you must travel here to Western WA to pick up your potential new dog or cat.

About R.A.I.N. Rescuing Animals In Need

R.A.I.N./Rescuing animals in need was originally established in 2011. We are located in Western Washington. Most of our dogs and cats come from underfunded shelters in California or Washington, where animals can be euthanized anytime due to lack of space, poor health, or duration of stay.
Many of our pets are rescued at the “eleventh hour” and are considered critical or urgent. They had little chance of being saved. We partner closely with a select group of rescues in California to save and place them
Rescued dogs and cats are vaccinated, spayed/neutered (if old enough), given flea/tick preventive, deworming medication, and microchipped. They are socialized with other pets and worked with regularly in foster care so we can get to know their personalities in depth. This ensures that the pet is well adjusted, happy and healthy before being adopted. It also helps us select the perfect forever home. Many of them have been through severe hardship, mistreatment or neglect, and that makes it even more important that we do our best for them. This means that we have to have guidelines because not every adopter is right for every animal. Our animals do not have a say in where they go; since we speak for those who have no voice, we must do right by them.
