We rescued a pup through Dog Gone Seattle and thought the process was organized and thorough. Expect to apply for a few dogs but when you get a meet and greet with the foster parent it can be a quick turnaround!
My kids are begging for a second dog. I'm trying to resist.
Dog Gone Seattle partners with overwhelmed, bursting-at-the-seams, high-kill shelters in other states to transport “adoptable” dogs to Washington. Here they have a better chance of finding homes. (apparently we have more dogs than kids in King County!) They are a great transparent organization.
