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.

**Volunteers** Do we have anyone planning to fly from Ontario, CA airport into Portland, OR anytime very soon that would be willing to bring this little guy up with you as your carryon passenger? He is an 18 week old cutie with a cherry eye that we will be surgically correcting. Please email me at Amanda@PandaPawsRescue.org - THANK YOU!

((He is a happy little guy, dont let his permanent expression and playtime pause for a photo fool you!))

Do you need a foster until he has a flight

Aww what a cutie pie

Poor baby

Danielle Leslie ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Aprile Hammond Caldwell u need to go get him

No plans on going that way but I'm in San Diego and could probably figure out a transport if no one else is happening to go that way.

Ontario California or Canada?

Aw man. We literally were just through both areas last week. Hopefully you find someone soon.

Flying from Santa Ana airport to Eugene, OR on Monday the 4th.

Very sweet and handsome I’ll be close to the area Sunday but not California in Utah

I’m going from PDX to Palm Springs tomorrow and back on Sunday 12/3. If someone can get him to Palm Springs my return flight is Sunday night at 5pm. I would probably need to know just so I could deal with Alaska Airlines

Every pet deserves a spa day, even at home! Bullfrog has grown quite fond of being pampered. He gets daily massages, enjoys what we call waiter water aka fresh ice cold water in a class cup hand delivered, home cooked meals, the works. If he could have laid here for hours with cucumber eye patches and his cheek and head massage, he would have. As he gets older with more glitter on his face, the more spoiled he becomes. One more favorites I do is the skin rolling massage technique. What are your pets FAVORITE things that make them feel like the couch Kings & Queens that they are?

Bee had a spa day today too! But his favorite time is in the evening he loves to curl up on my legs with a blanket underneath him that cradles him like a hammock. In fact if I'm "late" in sitting down he comes and pulls on my pants.

We , me, give our 3 massages every night before bed.

Oh boompy, you deserve all the pampering โค๏ธ

All of the above. We have Miss Frankie-Jane! Lol xxx Greetings from Australia. ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿฆ˜๐Ÿฆ˜๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ„

Hello from costa rica!! I like your mission!!! โค๏ธ

My baby has his own clothing closet and blanket for sleepy time.

Mine loves deep-ish tissue back massages.

One dog loves a daily massage and the other dog loves her tummy rubs.

My cat Chester likes his time outside in the sun. But living in the dessert means I have to keep him company. He also loves his belly rubbed.

๐Ÿ˜

Bum rubs for the win! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’•

Are you letting your hair grow? It looks too cute!

Happy thanksgiving to each and every one of you! The holidays are always a special time & a moment to look forward to, to connect, unwind and also, reminisce. It can be a more challenging time for so many for a variety of reasons. Today I hope we can wrap around one another near and far, give genuine true thanks and love to one another. For nostalgia and inspiration, please share your earliest photo(s) with your first animal friend in the comments if you feel inclined! 

Iโ€™m extremely grateful for every aspect that has allowed me to save thousands of lives, educate on so many levels, help to shift animal welfare in a more positive direction as well as grow personally. Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ thank you to all who have supported and encouraged Panda Paws Rescue & this mission Iโ€™ve been dedicated to! 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Woop Woop!! WOOPER ๐Ÿ• ๐ŸŽ‰

People donate to this when ask for help then you two rescues turn around and adopt them out to people who's already adopted from you before why not give other people a chance instead of letting people have them that is your friends or your family or coworkers with. That's just wrong in my book

PUG ๐Ÿฅณ
