My story

HISTORY: Andy was one of several puppies along with their mother rescued from an Abandoned House in Connell, WA in September 2020. He and his sister were quilled by a porcupine. Andy was found with a broken hind leg that could not be repaired and required amputation soon after he was rescued. He has adapted well to his 3 legs.

FOSTER UPDATE: Andy is shy but is gaining confidence daily. Due to his insecurities and lack of confidence, he would do best in a home with a confident, well-adjusted dog.

He needs to be with a dog-savvy person who is patient with him. At his ideal home, his person will work from home and have a securely fenced yard. He needs and will respond well to a positive training program.

He has excellent house manners. He chews on his toys and leaves the people shoes alone! He likes to sit on the couch and look out the window, quietly watching the squirrel who live outside. He is curious and happy to see other dogs when he's out walking.

Andy had a tough start but is ready for a forever home where he is loved and where all his love for you is appreciated—and he has lots to give!

DOG ADOPTION FEE INCULDES: All basic vaccines including rabies, flea/tick treatment, spay/neuter and microchip!

More about this rescue

Red Waggin' Rescue was founded in 2012 as a foster-based 501(c)(3) Non-Profit. We grew out of a need for the City of Connell, located in Eastern Washington, who were without a proper animal shelter and no pet rescue service.

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for abandoned dogs and cats in need, ensure healthy pets through pet food education, cultivate the younger generation’s love of animals and build a community where animals are valued and celebrated.

Red Waggin' Rescue first began in Connell, Washington, a small city in Eastern Washington without a proper animal shelter and no pet rescue services. Red Waggin’ Rescue partners with the City of Connell Police Department to rescue, provide vet care, and find forever homes for homeless dogs and cats from Connell, Mesa, Pasco, and surrounding areas.

Since 2012, we have rescued thousands of animals with the help of our network of volunteers, fosters and adopters located all across Washington State.
