PUP Dog Rescue is a volunteer driven, 501(c)(3) registered, non-profit organization located in Washington state and specializing in shelter animals from high-kill areas. We work in collaboration with shelters, other rescue groups, and individuals; both locally and nationally, to save countless dogs and cats from homelessness and euthanasia.
PUP does not purchase dogs or cats nor do we charge a fee for surrendering one.
Our fosters begin the work of house training, crate training, and leash training to facilitate a smooth transition for our pets as they move into their new homes. We work cooperatively with potential adopters to make the best possible match. PUP serves as an ongoing resource post adoption, providing guidance to our adopters should issues arise.
We value the vital relationships we have established with quality vets and trainers.
Our dogs and cats receive the following essential care prior to adoption:
- Quarantine. This helps to ensure your new dog or cat is the healthiest he or she can be prior to adoption.
- Examination by a veterinarian. We are a full-disclosure rescue and tell our applicants all we know about the dogs and cats they are interested in prior to adoption.
- Spay or neuter. We ensure our dogs and cats don‘t add to the overpopulation issue by spaying or neutering all prior to adoption.
- Vaccination. This including Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella for our dogs and FVRCP and Rabies for our cats. PUP places up-to-date animals in the adopter‘s care.
- Flea and Tick Treatment, Deworming. We don‘t like those bugs either!
- Microchip. For the safety of all of our dogs and cats, each is microchipped and we register to our adopters.
PUP has been in operation since 2005 and rescued over 3300 animals thanks to the support of our incredible team of fosters, volunteers, vets, trainers, and generous donors.
