We absolutely love PUP. We wanted to adopt another dog for a while, but nobody was willing to work with us to introduce our psycho dog to a companion. But PUP did; they patiently worked with us. Dixie is a great gift to our lives (and we to hers, judging by her leaps of joy all day long)!

Whether you are here to start the process of adopting a pet or simply want to browse our amazing cast of adorable pups, you have come to the right place! Pet adoption can be intimidating. At PUP we strive to make it easier by helping you find the best match from day one. Our commitment comes from our love for each one of our incredible pups. Due to the open hearts of our volunteers, PUP is able to save countless lovable companions from homelessness and euthanasia. It is through your adoption that we are able to complete this mission. Thank you for choosing PUP as an answer to your adoption needs.

PUP Dog Rescue is a volunteer driven 501(c)(3) registered, non-profit organization located in Washington state and specializing in small and toy breed dogs. We work in collaboration with shelters, other rescue groups, and individuals; both locally and nationally.

We have been in operation since 2005 thanks to the support of our wonderful volunteers, adopters, and donors.

Pet Adoption

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 dogs' 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 purebred or mixed breed dogs, although we do occasionally take in larger dogs. We have no central facility. Our dogs are placed in foster homes around the greater Seattle area where they receive socialization and training while they await adoption.
