Our Mission

Red Waggin' Rescue is a Washington-based non-profit organization. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for abandoned dogs and cats in need, ensure healthy pets through pet food education and strive to cultivate the younger generation’s love of animals and build a community where animals are valued and celebrated.

Red Waggin' Rescue is a foster-based rescue with no permanent shelter. We were founded in 2012 as a foster-based 501(c)(3) Non-Profit (EIN 45-5455943) that grew out of a need for the City of Connell located in Eastern Washington State that was without a proper animal shelter and no pet rescue services.

When dogs and cats come into our rescue, we provide routine and emergency veterinary care. While in one of our caring foster homes, they will be provided socialization, training and quality food while our adoption team finds them a loving forever home.

We are 100% funded through adoption fees and donations. We have rescued thousands of animals with he help of our network of volunteers, fosters and adopters throughout Washington State.
