Dog Rescue

Links below are rescue organizations and shelters with dogs available in Washington state. The reputability of these sources has not been verified; do your own investigation before purchasing a pet. And, be cautious if you are not making the transaction in person. Let me know if you know of any issues with any of organizations listed below. Also, let me know if any of the links quit working. Thanks!

Locations listed are based on contact information for each organization; however, many of the dogs waiting for adoption are placed in foster homes throughout the state. Some of the organizations have physical shelters, but most rescue organizations rely on a network of volunteers and purely exist online and in individuals’ foster homes.

Humane Society locations and links are listed at the bottom.
