In 2019, Dog Gone Seattle rescued hundres of unwanted dogs, with many adoptions in that same period. We are a foster volunteer based rescue organization which allows us to give each dog the special care and training needed to find the right fit in a loving forever home. Every dog that comes into our rescue receives a veterinary exam including vaccinations, spay and neuter and microchipping prior to adoption. We rely on adoption fees and donations from the general public to fund our organization. In a calendar year, we host 45-50 adoption events allowing the public to meet our adoptable dogs. Our adoption process includes an application, in person meeting(s) and reference checks to ensure the best possible placement for our dogs. If the dog is not a good fit for the family we take our dog back into our rescue. In addition to adoption events, we host 2-3 small fundraising events a year (raising less than $1,000) and our Winterwoof Silent Auction fundraiser in December, raising over $40,000. Dog Gone Seattle proudly takes on many dogs that other rescues feel they cannot help, including dogs with behavioral issues or special medical needs. We have rehabilitated dogs with aggression issues, reactivity, and separation anxiety; likewise we have rehabilitated dogs with autoimmune disorders, nutritional deficiencies, and dogs requiring orthopedic surgeries. While the majority of the dogs we rescue are adopted within 3 weeks on average, some need extra training or veterinary care. We have partnerships in the greater Seattle area that allow us to take on special causes. We are proud of our less than 0.5% euthanasia rate. (Less)

Our Mission
Dog Gone Seattle is a Washington-based nonprofit organization dedicated to saving homeless dogs in high-kill shelters in Washington and beyond through rescue, foster, and adoption. We are a foster-based organization, and our rescue is 100% funded through adoption fees and donations. We believe every dog deserves a chance at a forever home, and we aim to make a difference in the lives of these deserving animals, one dog at a time!

Our motto is Rescue, Respect, Repeat.

How we RESCUE:
We save dogs from high kill shelters in Washington and beyond. Many of our dogs come from California and Texas, where very adoptable dogs are given just days in overcrowded shelters before being euthanized. We bring them to safety and place them in a loving foster home.

Every animal that comes into our rescue will receive veterinary care including spay/neuter, Rabies, DAPPV, Bordetella, heart worm testing, microchipping and grooming prior to adoption. In addition, we evaluate behavioral temperament and compatibility to find the best match for each animal in our care. We respect that each dog has different needs, and tailor or approach to set every animal up for success.

How we REPEAT:
We rely on the help from our community – including people like you – to continue to help these animals in needs. If you are on this page, you’re on the right track. Think adopt, don’t shop! If you are in a position to foster an animal, opening your home to a rescue dog is so rewarding and not as difficult as you may think. And finally, if you’re not in a position to foster or adopt, consider volunteering or donating — our rescue is funded by contributions from the public and adoption fees.

100% of your donation will go directly to help animals in need!

Support Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why Should You Adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
