Mission and Work

Mission

DOG GONE Seattle is a Washington-based nonprofit organization dedicated to saving homeless dogs in high-kill shelters in Washington and beyond through rescue, foster, and adoption. We are a foster-based organization, and our rescue is 100% funded through adoption fees and donations. We believe every dog deserves a chance at a forever home, and we aim to make a difference in the lives of these deserving animals, one dog at a time.

Description

In 2018, DOG GONE Seattle rescued 525 unwanted dogs, with 475 adoptions in that same period. We are a foster volunteer based rescue organization which allows us to give each dog the special care and training needed to find the right fit in a loving forever home. Every dog that comes into our rescue receives a veterinary exam including vaccinations, spay and neuter and microchipping prior to adoption. We rely on adoption fees and donations from the general public to fund our organization. In a calendar year, we host 45-50 adoption events allowing the public to meet our adoptable dogs. Our adoption process includes an application, in person meeting(s) and reference checks to ensure the best possible placement for our dogs. If the dog is not a good fit for the family we take our dog back into our rescue. In addition to adoption events, we host 2-3 small fundraising events a year (raising less than $1,000) and our Winterwoof Silent Auction fundraiser in December, raising over $10,000. DOG GONE Seattle proudly takes on many dogs that other rescues feel they cannot help, including dogs with behavioral issues or special medical needs. We have rehabilitated dogs with aggression issues, reactivity, and separation anxiety; likewise we have rehabilitated dogs with autoimmune disorders, nutritional deficiencies, and dogs requiring orthopedic surgeries. While the majority of the dogs we rescue are adopted within 3 weeks on average, some need extra training or veterinary care. We have partnerships in the greater Seattle area that allow us to take on special causes. Of all of the dogs we rescued in 2018, only 1 was deemed unadoptable and euthanized for human aggression, and 1 was euthanized for medical reasons when quality of life was deemed poor -- a less than 0.5% euthanasia rate.
