Our Featured Pet...
Are you looking for a very sweet and cuddly chihuahua? Lyza and Milly were surrendered by their family to the rescue, because they were working too much and the dogs were not getting enough attention. Lyza is a very sweet, quiet and gentle natured dog, who is great with all sizes, ages and breeds of dogs. She is also great with children and cats. She loves going bye bye and will hop in the car, when you are not looking! Lyza had a set back when she had an injury to her eye while playing. Unfortunately the injury was irreparable and it had to be removed. Lyza is house, crate and leash trained. Lyza is approximately 2 years old and looking for a forever family. Please email or call 509-832-3060 for an application. Her adoption donation is $175
We are open Tuesday, Thursday,Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m during the school year and Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10am - 2:30pm for adoption appointments.
Since our rescue started in August of 2005 , we have adopted out over 3,700 dogs to new and happy homes. We are averaging around 500 adoptions a year. WOW!! Our biggest hurdle is the lack of education regarding spaying or neutering pets, and the effect it has on the communities. We have a huge problem with families that get a puppy and then when they are about 1 year of age they want to get rid of it. Both of the humane societies in our area are too full, so, now they are sending animals to us. We are extremely pleased to see that people are opening there hearts to our wonderful rescue. If you are interested in seeing our adopted pets, please visit our happy tails site to see how these dogs have been given a second chance. We are always looking for families who would like to help us foster these kids until they find their life-long homes. Our extended family members are regularly providing updates and pictures which is happily shared with their previous foster homes.
Other news: Since our rescue has started in August of 2005, we have had a huge response from the surrounding areas about abandoned pets. Unfortunately we are becoming overwhelmed with this response. WE ARE IN EXTREME NEED OF LOVING FOSTER HOMES. It is easy to pick up a stray dog/puppy, but the real rescue is when you will take it a step further and foster it. A foster family is a family willing to take on a dog and nurture it, whether that may be house train, leash train, and/or socialize the animal. This takes time out of the foster family's schedule, but in return they get the opportunity to work with many types of dogs and watch them go to wonderful, loving families where they will be valued family members. Every foster family is updated with pictures, emails, and cards telling them about the dog's progress with its new family, as it comes available. Being a foster family can be an extremely fulfilling experience. NONE OF OUR RESCUED ANIMALS ARE KEPT IN KENNELS/CAGES! They are all in foster homes where they learn their manners and become one of the family members. For this reason we must schedule appointments for any potential adopters to meet the pets. If you are interested in becoming a foster family, please contact Out West Pet Rescue at 509-832-3060 or email us.
If fostering a rescue animal is not within your capabilities, please consider donating food. We are constantly in need of puppy and adult food. On average, the rescue uses about 300 pounds of food a month. Your support is greatly appreciated, and helps encourage us to keep going, even when times are tough.
Foster homes are desperately needed throughout our community and the nation. Fostering a homeless animal brings such joy to ones life. Rescued animals definitely show their gratitude and it really warms the heart having a foster animal in your home. If you would like to learn more about what fostering entails, please contact us either by phone or e-mail. We would love to share some of our heart warming experiences.
WE ARE A 501C3 TAX EXEMPT ORGANIZATION!
WE CAN PROVIDE A RECEIPT FOR YOUR TAXES FOR
ANY TYPE OF DONATION.
Please email or call us for an adoption application. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers that saw a need for an animal rescue in the lower valley. We believe that the right to own a pet should not cost a fortune. Right now, we have 5 foster homes that take care of all of our pets. Our adoption fee's range from $150.00 to $300.00. The cost depends upon on the amount of time the dog has been with a foster family and the amount of money put into the dog, ie medical expenses. These fee's barely cover the cost of each pets vet bills, food, and shots. SO, we are happy to accept donations to help support our rescue. We are a 501 (C3) tax exempt rescue!!!! It took a while but it is well worth it. So, if you know of anyone or any business that would like to donate food, beds, toys or monetary support, please contact us. It is a great way to get a tax deduction and help some of our "kids" get a forever home! Our contact number is 509-832-3060 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for any kind of donations. All are very much appreciated!
