Our Mission

VALHALLA CANINE RESCUE is an animal rescue organization located in the shadow of Mt Saint Helen.  The majority of our volunteers work in the veterinary field and we specialize in giant breeds, bully breeds and medically fragile dogs of all breeds.  We are comprised of a network of local foster homes where rescues live in home-style environments with people knowledgeable in breed specific traits, general animal  behavior, health and nutrition.

We vaccinate, spay/neuter and micro-chip all our rescues as well as provide basic health exams including de-worming and flea treatments.  We also assess our rescues for general temperament and behavior and start basic training when applicable, including leash experience and familiarity with crating to ensure your new family companion gets a head start to becoming a Canine Good Citizen.

For Humans, we provide education, advice, puppy classes and "Meet a Breed" events to help educate those considering adopting a pet.

Adoption Policy


Adoption fees vary per rescue and should be listed in the pets description area.   Fees include an overall health exam, all vaccines, spaying/neutering, flea treatment and microchip registration.


We require an application prior to meeting any pet. You can find that application on our website.
Our rescues are in home environments, and all visits are by appointment only.
Applicants must be willing to provide references and agree to a home check prior to adoption.
 A fenced yard is generally required for all our rescues, but occasionally a pet will be allowed to be adopted to homes with alternate means of control and safety. 
Please read ALL pet information carefully for the animal in particular and its adoption requirements.
