Misunderstood Mutts is a Washington State dog rescue. We only rescue in Washington State, as we do not import dogs from other states or countries, believing that the need for services are much needed in Central and Eastern Washington. We primarily rescue out in the Yakima County area and not from shelter pulls. We also run a low cost community spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats in Yakima County.

Tri-Cities TNR (Trap Neuter Return) is an organization that is establishing a TNR program in the Tri-Cities that allows free roaming cats to live out their lives without adding to the homeless cat population. Feral cats are: (1) humanely trapped; (2) evaluated to ensure they are healthy enough to live a free roaming lifestyle; (3) vaccinated; (4) spayed/neutered; (5) ear tipped to identify them as having been altered and (6) released back to their familiar environment. Kittens and tamable cats are placed with rescue organizations for adoption. Caretakers/volunteers monitor colonies to ensure any new cats that appear in the colony are trapped. Caretaker/volunteers provide food and water for the cats daily, making their lives a little easier. Our group has been informally in existence for ~20 years, and a formal 501(c)(3) organization for just over a year. We currently work with the Kennewick and Richland Parks, a couple of mobil parks and a retirement community. Our goal is to expand our volunteer base so we can address new/more areas where feral cat groups have been identified.
WFA is a no-kill, pro-TNR foster care system based “virtual” shelter with the primary mission of saving and improving the lives of Whatcom County’s feline population. We are a shelter built with heart, not walls!
Our main mission at Hands ‘N Paws Animal Assistance is to work with the community, partner organizations, veterinarians and volunteers on behalf of animals and their guardians to enable each to stay together in order to reduce animal homelessness. We will also accept displaced and homeless animals as needed.
Hands ‘N Paws Animal Assistance strives to promote public awareness and provide education to the community concerning the importance of all aspects of animal care and the human/animal bond. We will be readily accessible in a crisis and be an informational resource. We will promote key animal issues by increasing our visibility in the community, participating in and supporting local events and causes.
Hands ‘N Paws Animal Assistance will fulfill these commitments by fostering a professional and compassionate volunteer base through training and continuing education, maintaining a strong and supportive Board of Directors and building partnerships with other organizations.
We are an all volunteer pit bull rescue. We will help any dog in need if we have the ability but our focus is the pit bull and bully breeds.
We are currently working on a permanent facility where we will house a small number of dogs until they can be introduced to a foster home environment. Our goal is to place as many pit type dogs into the best possible homes, educate the public about the breed, destroy the stereotype of viciousness and reduce the unwanted dog population.
Our facility will be at 22206 E Kennedy Rd in Benton City, nestled among the many wineries in our area. We have a 50×50 foot building where we will have indoor kennels, intake area, training/meet and greet room and everything we need to care for our dogs. There are outdoor yards where they can play, meet other dogs and just hang out and enjoy the nice weather. We are currently under construction and plan to be complete later this summer. At that time we will be able to house up to 20 dogs and unlimited number of puppies.
We also provide food for individuals in need, assist with training to help keep a dog in their home as well as limited vet care, vaccinations and other medical necessities including spay/neuter if it is needed.
We spay/neuter, micro chip, vaccinate, worm, vet every dog that crosses our path. Follow up checks are made and we will take our dogs back at any time during their lifetime if living conditions are less than satisfactory.

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.

Little Lives Small Animal Rescue started out as an idea a few years ago when we started noticing how many small animals in our community were ending up homeless, abandoned or neglected. In June of 2016 we decided to pursue the idea of a small animal rescue. With the support of our community we raised funds necessary to apply to become an official 501c3 non-profit. Our dream came true on July 10th and on October 19, we became exempt from federal taxes (501c3).
Since our inception, we have served close to 250 animals ranging from birds to rodents, rodent like, reptiles, fish and even wildlife, several having significant health care needs, resulting in expensive veterinary care and medications/treatments. The majority of our funding has been out of our own pockets or through support of our friends, family members and community members who our mission resonates with. Our passion for animals is what drives everything we do and we want to be able to continue to do that for many years to come.
With a goal to reduce neglect, abandonment and homelessness one of our key focus areas includes providing community education on proper animal care, the importance of spay and neuter (in appropriate animals) as well as understanding other key factors to consider before purchasing an animal i.e. average lifespan, special equipment, cost of food, supplies and vet care as well as opportunities to adopt.

Sedro-Woolley Police Department is a municipal police agency which supports one Code Enforcement/Animal Control Officer serving a population of 10,000+ residents. We require licensing for dogs only, but have a large feral and at-risk cat population in need of a trap/neuter/release program to control overpopulation and promote disease control. We utilize the animal sheltering services of The Humane Society of Skagit Valley and The NOAH Center. We currently have an annual operating budget for sheltering and veterinary services of $6000, and we typically impound over 100 animals per year. The shelter intake fee for each impound is $66, so our annual operating budget does not even cover these fees.
