Our Mission

We are a nonprofit rescue group dedicated to finding permanent homes for homeless dogs and cats in Pierce County, Washington. We do not operate out of a shelter, instead we rely on a network of foster homes to care for our animals until they are adopted.

Adoption Policy


- The first step, if you are interested in adopting one of our dogs or cats, is to fill out and submit an adoption application. You can request an application by emailing us or by sending an inquiry through Petfinder. A volunteer will contact you after it has been submitted to speak with you about your application and about the pet you are applying to adopt.
- If you rent, we require your landlord's permission to adopt a dog or a cat. We require a completely fenced yard to adopt a dog.
- After approval, all adopters must agree to and sign an adoption agreement. We do not adopt out pets as gifts unless the recipient is there to meet the pet themselves.
- All pets are spayed or neutered before adoption.


Kittens & Cats are $175.00

Cats and kittens are spayed/neutered, microchipped, treated for parasites, tested for FIV & Felv, and are given the vaccinations for Feline Rhinotracheitis, Calici Virus, Panleukopenia, and Rabies (If 4 months of age or older).

Dogs & puppies are $300.00 with an additional $50.00 obedience training refundable deposit.
When you complete an accredited obedience class with your new dog or puppy, then we will send you back the $50.00 deposit.

Dogs and puppies are spayed or neutered, microchipped, treated for parasites, and are given the vaccinations for Distemper, Parvo, and Rabies (If 4 months of age or older).

We accept cash or check. Card payments are an additional fee of $5.


Our rescue partners with the PetSmart in Sunrise Village located at:
10309 156th Street East
Puyallup, WA 98373

Our adoptable cats and kittens are at the Sunrise PetSmart every day for potential adopters to view them in the cat adoption center. Some of our adoptable cats stay in foster homes and so they are not available for viewing at PetSmart.
Please check our Petfinder Pet List to see all of our cats that are available for adoption.

Our adoptable dogs are in foster homes and they are brought to adoption events which are normally on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month at the Sunrise PetSmart.
Dogs are also brought to PetSmart's special adoption events.

Please contact Puyallup Animal Rescue and not PetSmart to verify adoption status if you are interested in a specific pet.


We are a foster home-based adoption agency for our dogs and cats. We rely on our network of volunteers to care for the animals until they find permanent homes. If you would like to foster for us, please email us and request a foster application!

If you are unable to foster, there are other opportunities, such as attending and helping out at our bi-monthly adoption events. Please send us an email if you are interested!
