Story
Aberdeen Scottish Terrier Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 Web Site: www.aberdeenstr.com ***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 in WA state, 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, Zelle, or cash. We no longer accept PayPal because of the percentage they take & their fees but if the potential adopter is willing to pay the fees & charges we will accept PayPal. What these sweet souls see, hear & endure is incomprehensible. Catherine was part of a breeder dumping dogs. She actually wanted Catherine & many others gone immediately in Indiana but was willing to work with us. We have to move fast because unfortunately in these situations, when they want them gone, there is no messing around for their health & safety. Being breeding dogs they are money making machines only & their time had come to an end with this breeder. Beautiful Catherine & her other 9 friends were living outside all day & night in cages. Once we knew about them, there was no way we were leaving them there. We organized to rescue all of them & our wonderful team drove & picked up everyone. Of course they were all so filthy & stinking so badly & some were matted to the skin & needing grooming immediately & medical care. She did not care & just wanted them gone. She said she was going to stop breeding dogs because she was pregnant but unfortunately it was not the case. Rescuing the breeding dogs is an extremely expensive situation each time & it involves a lot of expenses in transportation & so much medical. Now the real healing, love & devotion could begin & show Catherine how she is supposed to be loved & adored in a loving forever home & her other friends. Catherine was bought back to WA state where she is now so happy to be here & can’t wait to find her new loving devoted forever family. She is such an amazing soul even though humans have been so bitterly cruel to her. Her world changed within hours of a phone call & a car ride along with her friends. No more living outside for this girl in a cage. Catherine’s current foster family call her Gigi & they love her very much & would love to adopt her unfortunately one of their children has very bad allergies otherwise she would not be leaving this amazing foster family. She does so well around the small children & her foster mum thinks that she would be good with small children as long as they were calm. She definitely needs a home who will be patient with her during the transition as she loves her current foster family. Her foster mum in CO said she was such a wonderful & very sweet girl & also enjoyed running freely on the property with the other dogs & clearly this was her first chance & freedom but it was a little overwhelming & didn’t want to come inside as she believed she would go into a cage. It was the same originally with her current foster home until that trust was built. Since being in the rescue & her loving foster home Catherine has learnt to be a normal dog & what a normal life is supposed to look like. She adores having a comfy bed & big comfy blankets because again the reality is, this is something she did not get to experience ever until she was rescued as you can see from her pictures. She never got to experience toys, love, her own bed. All the things she should have experienced. She would still need work walking on her harness & leash as it’s all completely new to her as she was never taught until we rescued her. Her loving foster family have taught her to walk on a collar. This girl has been good with all different breeds of dogs as they bring her comfort. We have tested Catherine in a daycare environment & is good with men & women. But a daycare environment is absolutely not a good fit at all for this girl. Catherine rides well in the car once she knows you & trusts you. She is good with being bathed. We are looking for a crate free home for this little lady only. Catherine as you can imagine spent the beginning of her life outside in a caged environment. We are also looking for a forever home for Catherine where someone is home during the day or she can go with her people wherever possibly she can go with them. Catherine is looking for a forever home who will cherish her & love her as she should be loved & be patient with her & never give up on her. Catherine has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes in the rescue & in her foster home & she is currently with another dog & enjoys their company. It’s mandatory for her to go to a forever home with another dog present for her to thrive. Catherine’s forever home must have a fully fenced backyard, this is mandatory for free standing home. Catherine is roughly 17 lbs, she is 5 years old & a mini Australian shepherd, but what she is mixed with we are not sure. She is female, she is spayed by laser by our wonderful vets, she had a dental/scale & polish & dental x-rays. She had 6 molars, 1 premolar removed & gum surgery as her mouth was a neglected mess. She is microchipped, she is up to date on her shots, including DHLPP, Bordatella, rabies & dewormed several times. We have spent far more on Catherine with paying for her to get away from a breeder in Indiana to get her out with bringing her to WA with her boarding costs, transport costs, her medical care in WA, getting her spayed by laser, now boarding her in WA etc than her adoption fee even comes close to covering. Rescuing these dogs in these situations is financially draining then getting them all their medical added on too. Catherine 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 had her around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats. We were not there when Catherine was conceived so we do not know who her parents were & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think her breed is. As with all of our rescues & Catherine’s friends she 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 Catherine 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 Catherine & going through our process and have read her 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. Or you waste this rescues time, will 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 via WebEx or zoom due to covid & followed by a meet & greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Catherine who understands her needs & that meet all the requirements for this special sweet little lady. 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. Catherine has an adoption fee of $1350 & is ready for her truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what he has been through.

Story
About Frances Frances is an Australian shepherd mix and is believed to be 5-6 years of age. She’s a very sweet, friendly, happy, and playful pup who can catch a ball in midair if you bounce it on the floor for her. Her black, tan, and white coat is of medium length and will need routine brushing to keep it nice. She seems more laid back than most Australian shepherds and those who have worked with her at the shelter call her “an all-around good girl”. She would love a home where she will be around her people most of the time. Frances weighs 62 lb.

Bindi is a lovely perfect sized dog. She loves attention and being with her people. She's not too interested in fetch but would love games for mental stimulation. She does pull a bit on leash so could use a bit of training but overall a pleasant good girl.The dog adoption fee is $90. They come spayed/neutered, microchipped, first set of vaccines including DHPP (parvo combo), Bordatella (kennel cough), and Strongid (wormer).Our website updates every hour, but some animals may be adopted faster than we can get them updated online.If you'd like to check on the status of an animal, please call us at 360-352-2510. This is especially important if you are viewing this animal on any site other than Animal Services' website.

Story
Ollie is a 2 year old aussie mix adopted from TN. He is an amazing, curious and adventurous boy but also can be reactive around certain men (resource guarding/protective at times). He has not shown any hesitation around women, children or other dogs. Ollie is eager to please, enjoys catch, frisbee, and often will hike up to 10 miles with me at a time. He is fully potty trained, knows various commands, and has lived with other dogs and people. I no longer feel that Ollie could be living his best life, as I work 10 hr shifts and have limited space. Ollie would do well on a farm or a large property, with mostly female owners as an only dog or part of the pack!
