***MUST SUBMIT APPLICATION before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thank You for your cooperation***

Please read listings fully to the end before applying for one of our beloved rescues.



WE ARE NOT A SHELTER; WE ARE AN ALL-VOLUNTEER RESCUE WITH FULL-TIME JOBS.

Please do not contact us to look at a dog. We will contact you once we have reviewed your completed application if we think your home might be a good fit. A reference check, phone interview, and home visit will be completed before meeting an adoptable dog.



We work quickly. Please do not submit an application until you are ready to bring a new furry family member home. Expect your references to be contacted shortly after submitting your application. We adopt out to homes around the US and Canada, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA.



Our adoption fee is non-negotiable. The adoption fee is due on the day of adoption in the form of a check, Chase Quick via Zelle, Pay, PayPal, or cash.



Sweet & very innocent Winston & his best friend Gian Gian were surrendered to our beloved rescue together but were listed by their family on social media etc to be given away for free to separate homes. But we knew this pair were a bonded pair & loved each other ever so deeply & there was no way we would ever separate them & are dedicated to finding them an amazing forever home together only. Their family was moving to another country so Winston & Gian Gian needed help.

Unfortunately both boys needed medically the works. They both tested positive for giardia which we treated, they both needed all their shots & a dental scale & polish each but now this beautiful pair are ready for their new family to cherish them both.



Yet again one of the most amazing softest, kindest souls & that’s who Winston is. This boy for what humans have done to him is so loving & forgiving & just wants you to love & adore him. He is such a gentle soul even around other dogs all different sizes & he is probably not going to be a pack leader but will fit beautifully into a pack. This boy lets you hug him, kiss him & wants to shower you with love, joy & happiness. Did we mention he loves to play, well he does & especially with his best bud Gian Gian. But for a lab, this boy is one of the calmest labs we have ever seen.

Winston is also being treated for a skin infection & by the time we find his & Gian Gian their forever home together he should be finished with his medication. Poor guy has been through it but his beautiful personality still shines through. We are extremely excited to get this beautiful soul & his friend their true forever homes as he is one of the most amazing souls we have had the pleasure of meeting.

Winston is a beautiful walker on his harness & leash & enjoys going for walks & taking in the scenery.

Winston’s new forever home must have a fully fenced backyard.

This boy does well being groomed & bathed, he is such a love & so very easy.

Winston is a beautiful car rider, he is such a gentleman & likes putting his head out the window on car rides. He also adores snuggling into blankets & beds. We are only looking for a crate free home only for Winston & his best friend Gian Gian. We are also looking for a forever home for Winston where someone is home during the day or he can go with his people wherever possibly he can go with them.



Winston has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes & he loves every dog he meets & he is currently with other dogs & his best friend Gian Gian. We are looking for a home for Winston with his best friend Gian Gian & they must be adopted together. They can go to a forever home with another dog or dogs in the home as they enjoy other dogs company. A fully fenced backyard is also mandatory.



Winston is a male & possibly a Labrador retriever what he is mixed with we do not know. He is 4 years old now roughly 87.6 lbs & has put on quite a bit of weight with us. He is neutered, treated for a skin infection with antibiotics, received apoquel, had a dental, scale & polish, along with dental x-rays. He was tested for giardia & it came back positive so he was treated for it. He is microchipped, treated with credelio, now up to date on his shots, including DHLPP, Bordatella, CIV, rabies & dewormed.



We have spent far more on Winston with paying for boarding him, all his medical, his dental scale & polish, dental x-rays, treating him for giardia, his shots which he needed all of them, medications for a skin infection, credelio etc than his adoption fee comes close to covering.



Winston has not been around cats since being in the rescue, but it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals together. We have not had him around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats or small animals so we are only looking for a home without small children & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats.



We were not there when Winston was conceived so we do not know who his parents were & we were not there when he was born so we do not know his exact birth date & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think his breed is.



As with all of our rescues & Winston friends he will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Winston potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond.



We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying.



Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Winston & Gian Gian together & going through our process and have read their listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on & remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit using Webex due to covid & followed by a meet and greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion.



Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately.



Winston has a adoption fee of $995 & is ready for his truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what he has been through.
