***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 Pay via Zelle, PayPal, or cash.
We cannot even begin to imagine what PiDan witnessed & heard when he was at the slaughterhouse, how PiDan ended up in a slaughterhouse for human consumption & yes you did read that correctly, we will never know? What we do know is, he was pulled out of there by our outstanding Chinese rescuer just in time. It’s absolutely soul destroying to think about the horrific situation he ended up in. Working with one of our truly devoted, dedicated & absolutely outstanding Chinese rescuers she rescued PiDan & many others for us. Without this beloved rescuer going in & getting PiDan out, his fate was a torturous death. She transferred PiDan to her own rescue & covid had hit & the waiting began. Along with PiDan & many other sweet souls she got well & they waited to come to the US. This became a very extremely expensive situation with covid. We were finally able to bring everyone back through cargo which is an astronomical expense per dog, but we believe every sweet soul such as PiDan & his friends deserves to be loved & cherished & given the chance to have a wonderful life. Now PiDan is looking for a special family to cherish him & be patient with him & remember what this beautiful soul has been through & a family that meets all his needs.
PiDan was rescued by our truly amazing Chinese rescue friends & just as always we are beyond grateful to the Chinese rescue who we are so extremely thankful for what they do day in & day out for these babies, we cannot thank them enough.
PiDan was bought back to the USA where he is now a US citizen & is so happy to be here & can’t wait to find his new loving devoted forever home.
Fun, fun fun & enthusiasm then a whole lot of sweetness is a good way when describing Mr PiDan. It’s beyond brutal to think what came so close to happening to him as he is the sweetest, little man & loves attention but enjoys a good nap to. He has enjoyed eating since he has been here in the US with all the new tasty food he gets but let’s face it, being fed the way we are feeding him is all new to him & just being fed all the time is new to him. He also enjoys a good treat. He has put on weight instantly since being in the rescue.
PiDan is one very bouncy & very happy & fun little chap. He knows now what love & happiness is. It’s as if she is always smiling now.
PiDan does really well on her harness & leash considering we believe we are the first people to teach him how to go on walks but would still need to be taught. PiDan is a rescue & will need patience, time & understanding. PiDan adores being pampered & doesn’t want you to stop when brushing him, cleaning his eyes, grooming him, he loves it all. He also does extremely well being touched in general & adores receiving love. PiDan is so good with being bathed. With PiDan we had him with many breeds of dogs & he has done well with different size dogs.
Having toys & a warm bed is all new to PiDan & we have been excited to change his world with the introduction of toys & lots of love & affection & a loving environment. He is making up for lost time & who could blame him. In his new forever home he must be able to sleep with his family in the bed with them.
PiDan has learnt to ride in the car & does well in the car & enjoys a good car ride. He is such an amazing, loving little lad. He just sits back & enjoys the journey. With PiDan we are only looking for a crate free home for this lovely little lad only because of his horrendous past. We are also looking for a forever home for PiDan where someone is home during the day or he can go with his people wherever possibly he can go with them.
PiDan is looking for a forever home who will cherish him & love him as he should be loved & be very patient with him & understanding.
PiDan has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes & he is currently with other dogs & enjoys their company so we are looking for a home where he can be with another dog or dogs as he adores them. We currently have him with other dogs do in his new home it’s mandatory to have another dog for him. A fully fenced backyard is mandatory for PiDan’s new forever home.
PiDan is now roughly 7.8 lbs & has put on quite a bit of weight since coming to the US with us, he is 2 years old & perhaps a miniture poodle & what he is mixed with we are not sure? He is neutered & male, he had a dental/scale & polish along with dental x-rays & had 3 teeth removed, 3 premolars & gum surgery. He is heart worm negative, he is microchipped, up to date on his shots, had his shots including DHLPP, Bordatella, CIV, rabies & dewormed.
We have spent far more on PiDan with bringing him to the US with his travel airfare costs, alone bringing him through cargo, without anything else then on top of that paying for his medical care & boarding fees, including a dental/ scale & polish & x-rays, 3 teeth removed, along with gum surgery, neuter, shots, microchip etc, than his adoption fee comes close to covering.
PiDan 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. We have not had him around small children so we do not recommend children nor cats, but it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats.
We were not there when PiDan was conceived so we do not know who his parents were & 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 & PiDan’s 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 PiDan 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 PiDan & going through our process and have read his 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. We will only be accepting applications for PiDan who understands his needs & that meet all the requirements for this lovely sweet little man.
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.
PiDan has an adoption fee of $1250 & is ready for his truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what he has been through.
