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.

This is awesome!

Love it. Great idea. Stay amazing Amanda

We are doing this for Easter!

F'n awesome !

So fun!


That was wonderful. So happy you are able to do it 😘💞😘💞😘💞😡💞

How fun!

Awesome stuff

This made me smile! Thank you!!

We did a drive by bday party for my great nieces 4th bday. Stinking virus can’t take away handing off gifts to her! 🎂❤️

that is such a great idea!

This is awesome!!

Awesome stuff

You are such a sweetheart. I had a picnic with my grandkids last weekend. Loved every minute of it even if I couldn't hug them. But it was definitely fun to see them climbing trees again, 22 and 18 years old.

So wonderful ❤️


So very nice!! I’m missing my family. So tempted to drive to AZ to see them, even though I know we’re not supposed to.

Sweet! 😂🙂💕

No but you can give it to your pet.

I hope no one starts that 😔 let's love are furbabies as we do our children they deserve to be in the home of their loved ones not dumped like trash even if it's a shelter. 🙏 keep your furbabies they need love as well.

Will i get cooties from my pet?

No !!!

I hug Zoe all the time no worries

I don't think anyone believes they can get it from their pet. I think this virus just became the excuse some people were looking for to dump a pet they didn't really care for in the first place.😡

I havent seen any evidence about ferrets. We have 3 ourselves. They have been known to catch coronavirus/SARS cov2, not covid-19. The amount of misinformation I've seen about pets is worrying. I imagine in the next few weeks there will be an influx of animals being bought into shelters. Such sad times.

Información ,no al abandono por tener miedo ,aquí en mi país la gente se pasa de desobligada y está abandonando como siempre a sus pobres mascotas ,ellos dependen de su familia ,ellos no nos infectaran de nada

Defiantly don’t have a pet tiger 😂

Today we tried to groom our 15 year old dog! Not an easy job! Still have more cutting to do, but not bad. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣🙏🏻😷

This would be perfect, if it also said "DON'T LICK YOUR PETS!"

So they can't give it to us, but we can give it to them? Another reason for me to stay healthy... no one to watch my Henry if I get it. :'(

How do you even know?? This is something still new and no one knows how will react...it went from animals to humans and it can mutate again from humans to animal and back to humans again....so

Thank you!!!


So I saw on CNN that one of the tigers got it at I think the Brooklyn zoo. Is this possible?

First off love your pets.

Why cant i have a tiger

Great post!

Even if my fur baby could give me the virus I wouldn’t leave her EVER! #dogsforlife My girl has Caudal Occipital Malformation Syndrome & Chiari-Like Malformation so laying on her back is painful so this is how we do belly rubs in our house ❤️ from Australia. Stay Safe.

Thank you! Excellent! 😊💖🐕💖😻💖😊

I had 7 cats with coronavirus last year. We did not get sick. It's an illness that has been around a long time. The tiger had the same symptoms my cats had, dry cough, fever, loss of appetite, weight loss. The media is trying to get us to believe a human have it to a tiger. Totally false!!

Thank you for clearing this up because I was getting confused.

Little Yvie is being fostered by Sayde, Patty and Gerty. Today Gerty took her for a walk and because she’s not fully vaccinated due to age it was a “no paws on the ground” stroll with distancing & masks! Safety and sanity first!! Yvie is a 7 week old Dachshund mix looking for the perfect home! She’s sooooo tiny and sweet, great with everyone and healthy! If you are in Oregon or Washington and are ready for a wee love, please apply online at www.pandapawsrescue.org!

Have you ever tried dandelions... mine absolutely loves them!!

Its very hard. Prayers that this ends soon and life will be back to normal for us humans as well as our pets❤

So cool!

He’s adorable. My kids are adjusting to being home. My hubby and I are both “essential” and working outside the home.

it's so hard to stay on a decent schedule. Everyone is a night owl at our house, so we are having a hard time not staying up too late.

His name is DAD? I love it. But what did her father think of that?

Me and my lil man, Gunny. He is as screwed up as we are.

My beardie's name is Glitch. He has little seizures occasionally. I adopted him from someone who didn't want him. He is super spoiled and a giant mealworm and grapes junkie.

Jessica - more Dragon content ALWAYS

Hes cute! We have one, her name is Rica

Beardies are awesome!

Very hard! I have two guinea pigs that wake me up in the middle of the night because I swear they parkour!!

Where's my crickets Grammy ??? Lol

It's so hard. Next week homeschooling. Yikes!

He's pretty cute!

So cool

We baby sat our friend’s beardy last summer and at dusk, we’d go out and collect all the June bugs we could find and put them in his house and he’d go nutso!!! So much fun! ♥️

I'm working from home and forget to eat lunch and get off work at 5. But hey I get to work in my underwear so bonus I guess.

To me it's amazing how much energy you have with all the things you do. Your love of animals is undeniable!!! God bless and be safe. This too shall pass.

We are in the hardware business so things are going along as normal for me in SC....

Finn is a bit of a poser

Best pets ever Morticia and Gomez

So cute

We used to have a bearded dragon but being military we got orders, moved him with us, but he went downhill. I nurtured him back but we decided moving again would be too hard on him so we found him a new home. I miss him but I know he's still doing well!

I am a LMSW working on an inpatient unit with the chronically mentally ill population. No words to describe the torment people have with paranoia and delusions with this pandemic. Love you are watching over dogs and cats out there and taking care of them.

Love those precious fur babies 😘💞😘💞😘💞

That is wonderful!

Wish you guys were in ohio

Bless you

I took my 10 yr old cat to the vet today and found out she has a tumor in her tummy. They offered to put her down. She still will eat bites of chicken and water so I did not. Took her home for some last loves. If I need to put her down I cant be with her because it's a no contact. I'm so sad!!


Are they newcomers to your rescue?

I absolutely adore those feisty little pups! Thanks for sharing! 🐾🐾💜

Monica would this benefit you or anyone you know there?

They are having such a great time! Sunshine makes everyone happy!

This put a much needed smile on my face. Thanks for sharing.

I’ve forgotten what dogs you are caring for currently.

Is Yvie new?!? I love her she is a firecracker of fundus and joy and sparkles and glitter and unicorn and everything that's good in the world I think I need more of her in my life

They look like they're having a blast!! Nothing wrong with getting some stored up energy out 🤣 You & your family are awesome!!❤

Some puppy tussle going on! We need more cuteness in our lives these days 😂🐶🦮🐕🐕‍🦺❤️

Awww, so darling!!

So many cute puppies!!!

She's got alot to say.

You are amazing Amanda

Great job Panda Paws Rescue!

You are awesome Amanda.

I love you because you a true humanitarian! You are always thinking of others

Please repeat amazon address to order food for you..

You all stay safe up there 😘💞😘💞😘💞

That's awesome Amanda!!! ❤❤❤

You have such a loving & giving heart. <3

I'm not necessarily having a problem paying for my cat's food, my biggest problem is the place that I normally get it from is walmart.com. So we have not been able to get our food there for them or toilet paper or paper towels, or pretty much anything else. people are like what there's paper towels everywhere? Not in my town there isn't and without a vehicle what do you do? Either order from online or get from a place within walking distance

God bless

She is soooooo cute! She looks like she could be related to Mason and Murphy. They’re bigger now though.

Looks a little damp N of the Columbia. Ditto out here in your Tanasbourne vets’ neighborhood. Keep on keepin on, and we’ll keep on loving/supporting you!

Such a cutie! She looks so happy!

My dog always has to hold her own leash

She's absolutely adorable.


I needed a little BlackBerry today. Thanks!

She's precious

I love to see how happy she is. 🐾❤️🐾

She is so happy!!

She is so cute. It's great to see how happy she is and how she doesn't let her heart condition slow her down. I have a 13 year old doing Chemo that also has a grade 4 murmur. They still have as much love,joy, and happiness as any other dog.

Why did she come back from her foster family?

She's adorable

looks like it will be bathtime when you get back home lol

What a stinker! So cute 😃

She's adorable

She looks like she's loving it ❤️💕

She looks so happy. I'm surprised she didn't have fun in the puddles..

She's beautiful!!

She's just too cute!❤


What kind of dog is she?😍

She is adorable !!! Have a wonderful day!!💖

Ohhhhhhhhh myyyyyy gosh... I love her...

Love this girl!

Good afternoon!! Baby Phoenix is officially with his new momma and headed home! This is our last long distance journey until covid is under control and even still we were able to do it usual distance and sanitary protocols. The airports are empty and eerie but that’s a good thing! This baby patiently waited 6 months to find his happily ever after and we weren’t even sure if we would be able to get him into the loving arms of his momma.... but we did and I couldn’t be more excited for him! Thank you Dr. Nina!! Congrats to both of you!!!

So happy for you ...xoxoxoxo

So happy for you...I recognize the Portland Airport carpet

God bless you all and keep you safe.


Safe travels and congratulations 💕

Wonderful uplifting news! Need this

Prayers Healing Love and Peace. Thank you 💜🐾🌏🐾💜

CONGRATULATIONS! He's beautiful!

What a bright light amongst the storm! Have a great life Baby Phoenix.

Awww that’s awesome!!!! I hope we will get updates on how Phoenix is doing 🙂 and glad it was a safe trip

Cute kitty! Happy trails!

I love all that you do. R.E.S.P.E.C.T! Be safe!

Love that baby kitty 😍

You should have taken a pic of his little paws standing on the PDX carpet.

Thank you, thank you for getting Phoenix a new mommy.

Excellent. The next chapter of his life looks bright. Happy purring, head bonks, belly rubs.💕🐈

Grey cats are the best
