FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where is Panda Paws Rescue located?2021-05-17T15:39:04-07:00

Washougal, Washington

Remember we are NOT open to the general public to come and go. We do allow adopters to come into our home but we do not allow people to just stop by to meet us or our animals. We try to make ample opportunities each year for our beloved supporters to meet with us at fundraisers or public events. Additionally, we post daily and allow our supporters to follow the journey of each animal from within our home on our social media pages. Your respect and understanding is greatly appreciated.

Do you spay & neuter your rescues?2019-03-21T21:48:41-07:00

Yes, we require that every animal is spayed or neutered unless medically they are deemed unfit for surgery because it poses a danger to their life. Thankfully, that is very rare.

Do you take cats/pigs/birds/wildlife/etc?2019-03-21T21:50:28-07:00

Yes, Panda Paws Rescue does occasionally help other species. However, the vast majority of our rescues are dogs!

I found a stray, where do I bring it or can I bring it to you?2019-08-26T10:48:55-07:00

Panda Paws Rescue does not accept stray animals and we encourage you to take the animal to your local shelter that holds the contract with your respective county to help the animal reunite with their family. If the stray is a Panda Paws Rescue alumni the local shelter will contact us and we can arrange transferring that animal back into our care with them. There are laws in each county which allow time for a family to reunite with their lost animal companion and it is very important to us that we follow those laws strictly.

I want to visit Panda Paws Rescue. Can I just stop by?2019-03-21T21:50:44-07:00

Unfortunately no. We do our best to make ourselves as available to the public as possible, however, this is our family home and for our personal privacy and safety (as well as the safety of the animals) we are NOT open to the general public to come and go. We do allow adopters to come into our home but we do not allow people to just stop by to meet us or our animals. We try to make ample opportunities each year for our beloved supporters to meet with us at fundraisers or public events. Additionally, we post daily and allow our supporters to follow the journey of each animal from within our home on our social media pages. Your respect and understanding is greatly appreciated.

Are you a nonprofit / 501c3 and is my donation tax deductible?2019-03-21T21:50:51-07:00

Yes! Panda Paws Rescue is a registered 501c3 charity and your donations are tax deductible.

I have pet food, medications, kennels, etc to donate. Where can I do that?2019-03-21T21:49:18-07:00

Panda Paws Rescue runs on a very low volume and therefore our need for these types of donations is much lower than it is for a lot of our rescue partners. I encourage you to make these types of donations to your local shelters or to programs that help feed low income family pets. When Panda Paws Rescue is in need of a specific supply, we add that to our Amazon Wish List & share it on our Facebook page as well. ( www.Facebook.com/PandaPawsRescue501c3 )

How do I donate to your Amazon?2019-03-21T21:49:29-07:00

Panda Paws Rescue has an Amazon Wish List and we do encourage people to donate items on that list. We try to keep it current with each new rescue that comes into our care. If you are an Amazon Smile member, Panda Paws Rescue is a recognized charity on their list to choose from as your beneficiary each time you make a purchase.

I would like to donate, how can I do that?2019-03-21T21:50:59-07:00

Donation is the sole reason we are able to do what we do here at Panda Paws Rescue. Without our public support, the number of more needy animals we would be able to save would be drastically lower. Donations save lives & we are eternally grateful for your support. Donations can be made directly on our website ( www.PandaPawsRescue.org ), directly on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/PandaPawsRescue501c3 ) or via good ole snail mail to:
Panda Paws Rescue
805 NE Perry Road
Washougal, WA 98671

I would like to foster, how can I do that?2019-03-21T21:52:34-07:00

Currently we only have our board members as volunteers, as well as one family that does tube feeding for neonatal puppies. If you are local to the Washington State or Oregon State area and are a savvy tube feeder, please send us an email as we see a major influx of cleft palate puppies that require tube feeding for 6-8 weeks.

I would like to volunteer, how can I do that?2019-12-04T15:54:40-08:00

Volunteering is a major help in the rescue/shelter world and most could not make it happen without their selfless team of helpers. Panda Paws Rescue is operated out of my personal home and I have children. Therefore, we do not allow volunteers here so that I can run as “normal” of a household as possible for my family as well as for obvious safety reasons.

Currently, we only have one family that does tube feeding for neonatal puppies. We do occasionally need transport help and when that need arises you can find the plea for help on our Facebook page.

If you are local to the Washington State or Oregon State area and are a savvy tube feeder, please send us an email as we see a major influx of cleft palate puppies that require tube feeding for 6-8 weeks.

She’s doing so well, and hydrotherapy will be so beneficial. Good luck, sweet Breslin - we’re all cheering for you!๐Ÿ’•

Wonderful news Breslin.โค๏ธ๐Ÿพ

Wonderful news

Congratulations , Breslin ! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿค๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

What are your recommendations for foods for labs that need to lose weight. I have two male English labs that are 8 and 9 and in the last two years I have had a really hard time keeping the weight down. They don’t get a ton of food and treats but they hover around 90 lbs.

You go girl!!!!

Yay Breslin!!!! ๐Ÿ˜

So sweet ♥๏ธ♥๏ธ♥๏ธ

Ugh, poor thing. Owners that let their dogs get fat should be charged with animal cruelty.

Awww. I hate weighing too

Do we know how he is with other dogs? ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ–ค

I’m with Westman Animal Rescue in Manitoba, Canada. We could take him and I would foster as I am a groomer and trainer.

Is there a reason that these rescued pups from breeders are available to rescues only?

Our daughter’s service dog is a standard poodle. Such smart dogs. He alerts to heart rate changes. โค๏ธ

Hope an admin person will take care of the person pushing shih tzu FB page. I've nothing against the breed or rescues. It just seems as though person is taking advantage of Amanda's post. Poor form Stephanie Assen.

Love โค๏ธ ๐Ÿฉ ๐Ÿฉ I've had 2 standards. Hope he gets a good home. There very smart, ours is a lev 3 service dog.

What the heck is going on in Ohio?!?! A local rescue in my area (San Francisco) have been taking in sooo many doodle breeder surrender dogs. Some old “used up” and some puppy’s! So sad ๐Ÿ’” but glad they are getting a new/better life!

Amanda, Is he not surrendered yet? you are currently looking for a rescue to take him correct?? I can share and see if anyone I know may know of a rescue that could take him. He is absolutely beautiful!! Never seen a Poodle like him before!!

hopefully the breeder is going out of business

Oh this is such great news!!! Is the Rescue in Ohio? Please keep us updated on how he is doing etc

Breeder with neutered male confuses me? Happy he is on his way to a better life!

I would love to adopt him in florida

He's gorgeous. Amanda, you do great work!

Oh, he would be a Grrr-eat addition to someone's 4-Ever family. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿพ

Beautiful pup ๐Ÿถ!

He is adorable!

Looks like a upside down โค on him!

Prayers!

Emily Roberts can Erica take him in?

My fur kids Darcy and Drake as pups.

We rescued Gus from an unhappy life 20 months ago. He was 82lbs, his coat dry and ruined from not being taken care of with dreads between his toes, and he had a huge sore on his nose from rubbing the tree he was tied to (10-15ft tie out) for two years. He had an owner with a large property and invisible fence that Gus went through or over. Gus had just turned three in this picture. He'll be five in June and he's now about 120lbs. This is his third day home with us and he'd just been to the groomer and the vet.

Baby Calli Ann! Love her beyond words. She was born with an intrahepatic liver shunt so I don't know how long I have with her but until that day comes I make the absolute most of it

So stinking cute!

Puppy and now! My baby just turned 6 on March 4th and she is my world โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Beautiful golden retriever pups

Omgoodness they’re all so adorable and look so so happy!! Thank you as always for the work you do!

Look at those eyes๐Ÿ˜ข. They’re telling a sad story. Thank you for saving these precious pups. ๐Ÿ’•

I always wanted a golden retriever.

Thank you for all the work you & others have done, or are doing, to rescue all the poor pups who have been held in puppy mills. Somehow, puppy mills need to be declared illegal & against the law but that would require money to hire people to monitor, investigate & prosecute. So sad, my heart breaks when I see or hear about puppies forced to have litter after litter after litter. Blessing to all of you! ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿพ

Awesome!!! Way to go!! You & all your crew are ANGELS!! Thank you for all you do for all the animals, pets, furbabies in need. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Thank you to all the rescues!!!๐Ÿ’™โค๏ธ

Thank you so much for everything you do. What beautiful, precious puppies.

Those happy faces ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Whoop whoop! So kool!

Yay!!!! That’s amazing!!!!

Rescue angels!!

So why are these puppy mills not charged with abuse and made to shut down and prosecuted.They are no different than the labs torturing animals for research.I have signed thousands of petitions for last 30 years to do something about this when is it going to stop.I never will ever buy a puppy or dog from any breeder when there are over million dogs being killed per year in shelters.

Thank you all for what you do!

Any coming in direction of MD? Our rescue would love to work with you.

All of you together are a force to be reckoned with. Keep making the impossible, possible!

How amazing is it to watch this side of rescue (the backside) unfold right before your eyes here on our Facebook page? What you don't see is Lee and I texting at all hours, all day, all night, wee hours coordinating. Then the emails I am feverishly responding to as they fly in and then the connecting the dots from A-Z. But, you do get to see how some of it is done when we partner up on animals in need.

Thank you so much for helping us out and helping out all the beautiful animals! You are such an amazing person and just know we appreciate you so much

Between contenecting rescues, arranging the priority of who all needs pulled first, planning their release, transports, there is a LOT that goes unseen. Rescue truely never sleeps. What people do not see is the long list of dogs waiting in line for pick up. There is a ton of planning that has to go into each dog that gets pulled. We are incredibly grateful to have you partnering with us so we can help get as many dogs as possible into rescue and out of the breeding facilities.

All of us rescues are the same both sides of the pond

I have followed you since your first episode aired. Have always been happy and excited to see all the help animals get. Heck I started transporting and now fostering bc of what I have seen you do. I have handled special needs for other rescues along the way to their forever homes. I’m excited to say I officially helped with another rescue to take one here locally. Love of littles. They are great and I love what they do. I will forever keep helping even though I am not in vet med anymore I still love to see all the people come together for a pet in need. Truly a village

You are truly impressive in the reach and depth of your devotion towards all animals. I loved watching your show and enjoy these posts, also. Kudos to all you “savers”. ๐Ÿ˜ป

I think many professionals in logistics could learn a thing or two from many animal rescues. Truly amazing work in all aspects โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

I'm fed up of helping rescues, giving them car loads of stuff to sell, fostering, then they sht on me, then plead for fosterers. That's the other side people don't see

Your cape is made of gold, glitter and all thing’s beautiful! Just the little bit of calls made today just confirms the fact that my family and I and sooo many others respect you and your endless hard exhausting work you do on a daily to rescue so many precious lives. Thank you doesn’t even come close to how grateful we all are, for you, for Kelly, and all of your village. You are extraordinary! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’œ

It warms my heart,I live in NZ and can't wait for all your up dates each day. Keep up the great work

Well done to everyone involved! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Don't know how much stamina it takes to be wonder woman.... Just glad you are. Thank you for all you do for the babies that have no voice. I am in awe of you. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Thank you so much! โค๏ธ its amazing what you can accomplish with partnering with other rescues

I hope to be able to help with transporting one day!

You are ALL amazing people

You are amazing!!! Even if it isnt you personally rescuing these lives you are saving lives!!! Being the facilitator is sometimes more rewarding than actually being the one to rescue! The world needs more Amanda's!!! Thank you so much for all you do!

You do so much for rescue. Thank you

I saw your show on Animal Planet and think you folks do an amazing job

You are AMAZING!!

Yall are angels

I don't know how all of you get so much done. You are such amazing people.

I think it is great!

Your a ๐Ÿพ angel ๐Ÿ˜‡

It's amazing how fast rescues can happen. Watching this is like watching an orchestra play! Thank you for all that you do. I wish you guys were here in Florida. We need rescues like you.

People have no idea the work involved! Not to mention the odd hours, travel, vet bills and the list goes on. Thanks for all you do! Thanks for loving these precious babies!!!!!!!

Love from Bella a rescue dog that live in the Nederlands for take care of my little friends. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ
