Forgotten Dogs Rescue is dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned dogs that are at risk of euthanasia in shelters, given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, or in danger of abuse or neglect.
Who We Rescue
Over and over, dogs are abandoned at shelters only to live out their lives in a kennel, being passed by time and time again until their time finally runs out. Through no fault of their own, these dogs aren’t adopted because they have something “wrong” with them: the “wrong” color, the “wrong” look, the “wrong” age, and most commonly, the “wrong” breed. These are the dogs we save.
Even worse is when a dog isn’t even taken to the shelter. Some are abandoned outside of town. Some exist on the end of a chain or are otherwise neglected or abused. These are the dogs we save.
Sometimes it’s the dog’s owner who is down on their luck and can no longer afford to care for their dog, but want to ensure he or she goes to a loving, forever home. These are the dogs we save.
These dogs can be any breed, but we primarily focus on Pit Bulls and other bully breeds. They are the ones most likely to die in shelters, and the ones who need an advocate to ensure they don’t end up in the wrong hands.
We save the dogs that need help the most, the dogs whose time has run out, the dogs who have lost all hope—the forgotten dogs.
Once a dog enters the Forgotten Dogs Rescue program, we’re committed to it for life. Our dogs live in private foster homes where they receive love and attention and learn to be wonderful members of the family. They receive all necessary medical care, no matter the cost. If they come to us with behavioral issues, we invest in training. No matter what, we are committed to do whatever is necessary to make them adoptable and find them amazing forever homes. And if at any point an adoption doesn’t work out, we will always welcome the dog back into our program.
We make a promise to all of our dogs that they will never again be forgotten.
Sad Beginnings, Happy Endings
Although most of our dogs have sad beginnings, they all have happy endings!
We strive to place our dogs in the best possible homes for them, taking into account the needs and requirements of both the dog and the adopter.
Adopting a friend
If you are interested in adopting a dog please email us for an adoption application. Once your application is approved we will arrange a time for you to meet the dogs you are interested in.
All dogs in our care are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and flea treated, as well as receiving any other medical care they might need.
While most of our dogs are rescued from eastern Washington, we have foster homes all over the state and can arrange transport to an approved adopter.
