We are a small, all volunteer 501c3 private foster home based organization in southwestern Washington State. Harbor Rescue handles about 250 dogs yearly, concentrating on lost, stray, abandoned, neglect and cruelty cases. We complete all vetting on the animals we take in or help to include necessary health vetting, vaccinations including rabies, spay/neuter, micro-chipping, de-worming and flea treatment. Harbor Rescue spent $65k in vetting in 2018, a large part of that on low income and homeless spay/neuter, vaccinations, and necessary vetting.
**We filed for 501c3 status via a professional company after failing to do it ourselves. 501c3 status was approved and only back dated to June 2013.
