My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.


Mia came to us from a rescue friend in California who took her in to foster with her sister after their human left them at the groomer and refused to pick them up.                                                                                                              
Mia is a 2-year-old Corgi-Dachshund female.  Mia is incredibly intelligent, protective, loving, and independent. She can take a couple of days to trust new people and treats help with that. Once she settles in and knows you are not going to hurt her, she is all about belly rubs, running after her toys, Chewing on her split Elk antler, and chasing around the backyard. This dog has a personality plus!! Mia is incredibly loyal once she loves you and will want to be wherever you are. But she is not clingy, just give her a split antler and she is happy to sit and chew it while you work. She just likes to be in the same room as her person. But when you are ready to give her love, she will drop the antler to share quality time with her favorite human.

MIA is the quintessential "Dorgi" Queen Elizabeth's favorite combination-Corgi and Dachshund. She truly needs a home with no cats or dogs. She is the queen of the home and will protect it fiercely. She makes an awesome watchdog and would be excellent for a single woman who wants a dog that will bond strongly. She will warn you when a stranger is at the door.

What Mia Needs:
Mia requires a child-free, small animal-free home. Mia
 loves to be the center of attention and should be an only fur child. Mia seems to prefer women and needs a loving person or persons with a fenced yard for potty, a willingness to walk her, give belly rubs, and let her sleep with you. (she typically sleeps near the foot of her bed with her split Elk antler or under the covers close on cold nites) and someone who will Keep Mia on the very nutritious canine-specific foods she needs to stay healthy for her entire life (we provide in-depth education). Mia needs a woman who is committed to loving her forever so she will never again be abandoned!

Adopting a Dog requires a lot of work and is a commitment!
Adoption: If you think you have room in your home and heart for a new rescue dog, please go to our website:

Healthy dogs: As a rescue saving dogs from starvation, Neglect, and Emaciation, RPR focuses on feeding each rescued animal the healthiest dog food made of Human Grade ingredients to help them recover from their stress and starvation. We share this with our adopters and encourage them to keep their new pets on the same foods for optimal health and long life.


1) These dogs are not livestock dogs. They must be family pets that are allowed inside the home.

2) We give preference to applicants with prior small breed knowledge/ experiences.

3) Secure visible fencing required.

4) You must have a plan in place to socialize your dog properly.

5) The FASTEST way to be considered for a dog is to fill out an application. If you write, it will delay your application and put you at the back of the line. The folks processing applications are volunteers that have their own dogs, families, and job responsibilities. We do our best to get applications done quickly.

We bring dogs from up from California. There are transportation costs for each dog. Then the dogs need to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, groomed, and some are placed with fosters, or set up at the adoption facility in Arlington. We do not receive any grants so we rely solely on adoption fees and donations to fund all of our rescue efforts. Finally, we take on "Special Needs" dogs with high vet costs and pay for their procedures with 'leftover' funds from adoption fees for healthier dogs.

Our passion is to bring people and pets together. Countless dogs are without homes and in need of assistance. These are dogs who would make wonderful and faithful companions if only they could connect with the right person or family. We have made it our mission to help them do this. At the same time, we hope to enrich the lives of those who adopt them.

We strive to match our dog's needs and personality to the preferences and requirements of each potential adopter. We believe this is a crucial component of the process and will help ensure a life-long relationship.

Our primary focus is on small mixed breeds, moms, and puppies of small and large breeds, although we do occasionally take in larger dogs. We work collaboratively with shelters, other rescue groups, and individuals, both locally and in California..

RPR was established in April 2015. We placed 400 dogs in our first year of operation in a small facility on acreage in Arlington, Washington.

We have a few local fosters and seek to increase our foster base in order to save more lives

Come Meet Our Pets...
We have a home-based operation on Acreage in Arlington and Our dogs are placed in foster homes around the greater Seattle/I-5 Corridor North to Arlington area where they receive socialization and training while they await adoption.
Our Adoption Process...
Since we have a small facility on gated acreage, we are unable to stay open to anyone who wishes to come visit. To facilitate successful adoptions we ask interested people and families to fill out an application for the dog or dogs they may be interested in. We screen the applications and then speak with the interested party by phone. If it looks like a good match can be made, we pre-approve the applicant and set an appointment for a meet and greet with the dogs at our facility or with the fosters who have the dogs in their care. We continue the interview in person and make sure the dog and family are a good fit.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

Since many of our rescues reside with fosters, applicants will meet their potential new family members by appointment either at the Arlington facility or with the foster at an approved site that works for all participants. We look forward to meeting you.

More about this rescue

I began pet rescue at the young age of 11 when I attended Junior High school across the street from a high kill shelter that employed a decompression chamber to kill animals. I never stopped. I have worked with many other rescues and rescued on a small basis. Because of the awareness in Wa. state and the huge base of volunteers and animal lovers in this state, I have endeavored to do this full time in order to save many more lives
