Can I adopt a dog from PUP if I am not a local resident?
Currently we adopt anywhere within the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and internationally, Canada, as long as all household members can drive to the Seattle area to meet with us.
Is the dog or cat Iím interested in still available?
We update the availability status of our dogs and cats quickly. A dog or cat is available unless "Adopted" is listed beside their name in the profile.
Will you hold a dog or cat for me?
Our goal is to place dogs and cats in suitable homes as quickly as possible to create room for pulling other homeless pets into our program. Therefore we do not put holds on adoptable animals.
Where are your dogs and cats?
We have no central shelter. Our dogs and cats are in various foster homes in Western Washington and Bend, Oregon.
What are your adoption fees?
Our adoption fees range from $75-$700.
How are adoption fees determined?
Here is a general overview of how our adoption fees are determined. They are based on a dog's or cat's age, breed, temperament, training, and health. We don't have a central facility, so all of our animals receive individualized care and training in our foster homes prior to adoption. We have numerous ongoing expenses for veterinary and general care. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, microchipped, and receive a dental if needed. Some also require other types of surgeries, medications, and special medical care. In addition, we have expenses for transportation, food, crates, and other supplies. If we're lucky, we break even and are able to sustain ourselves as a rescue group. We're glad you asked and hope this helps to answer your question.
Will my money be returned to me if I adopt a dog or cat and it doesn't work out?
Adoption fees are nonrefundable.
What if I still have a question that isn't answered here or on the adoption application?
