Mission Statement

NorthWest Wag Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit pet rescue organization based in Gig Harbor dedicated to representing the rights of animals everywhere. We work tirelessly to get animals out of shelters and dangerous situations and find them loving forever homes in the Pacific NorthWest.

Description

In order to help as many pets as possible, we partner with Roswell Shelter in New Mexico, Caddo Parish in Louisiana, Misiones Caninas and Flying Dog Rescue Ranch in Guadalajara, Mexico. Two of these shelters, Roswell, and Caddo, are "kill shelters" which eventually carry out euthanasia on those animals they cannot find homes for. Unfortunately, this happens too often, and in our mission of saving and rehoming pets, time is often of the essence. Our Mexico partners rescue dogs from the streets and unsafe situations, nurse them back to health, complete their protocol and place them into safe living situations until they have their chance to come to WA. We are able to help local animals in need as well, as long as space permits. Currently, we do not have a facility of our own, so we rely on the help of volunteers and foster families in the Pacific Northwest area to reduce the euthanasia and abuse of homeless dogs and cats through rescue and quality adoptions.
