Connecting pups in need with their furever families


NorthWest Wag Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit pet rescue organization based in Gig Harbor dedicated to representing the rights of animals everywhere. We work tirelessly to get animals out of shelters and find them loving forever homes in the Pacific NorthWest. To do so, we partner with Roswell Shelter in New Mexico, Stanislaus Shelter in Modesto, CA, and Flying Dog Rescue Ranch in Mexico. Two of these shelters, Roswell and Stanislaus, are "kill shelters" which eventually carry out euthanasia on those animals they cannot find homes for. Unfortunately, this happens too often, and in our mission of saving and rehoming pets, time is often of the essence. Currently, we do not have a facility of our own, so we rely on the help of volunteers and foster families in the Pacific Northwest to reduce the euthanasia of homeless dogs and cats at these shelters through rescue and quality adoptions.
