Our Mission

Founded in 2012, Red Waggin' Rescue is a foster-based 501(c)3 (EIN 45-5455943), out of Connell WA, that advocates, rescues, and provides medical treatment for abandoned and homeless dogs/cats, while finding them loving forever homes throughout the Pacific Northwest!
Red Waggin' Rescue first began in Connell, Washington, a small city in Eastern Washington without a proper animal shelter and no pet rescue services.  Red Waggin’ Rescue partners with the City of Connell Police Department to rescue, provide vet care, and find forever homes for homeless dogs and cats from Connell, Mesa, Pasco, and surrounding areas. Our volunteers and foster homes are active throughout Washington State.

We are quite good at matching pets to homes and have a lower-than-average return rate. The national average is about 7% and for RWR it is closer to 3%.

*PLEASE NOTE: While we do our best to keep the site up to date as soon as an adoption is complete, we cannot guarantee that a pet will still be available for adoption if listed on our site.
