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?2019-03-21T21:50:34-07:00

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?2019-03-21T21:52:28-07:00

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 an in-home based rescue where we also have active teens and much else going on. Because of this, we do not have regular volunteer opportunities. Currently we only have our board members as current volunteers, as well as 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. www.Facebook.com/PandaPawsRescue501c3

Again, the best broken record, thank you Valley Oak SPCA for your partnership and saving this girl! Thank you for reaching out right away!

Mighty little Brussels Sprout got his splint changed on Wednesday and we retook xrays. Great news is he only needs a splint for 2-4 more weeks! We will change it in two weeks and reevaluate his leg then. Until it’s off - STRICT - kennel rest! Meaning all day, every day unless he’s being held. Period. He is at high risk of breaking his leg at the femur or worse if he’s let loose because he’s a wild thang with no breaks. So while he’s on bedrest I like to give him mini excursions to the trough room so he can hang out on the dog beds and watch the puppies outside. And yes.... he does have chickens all over his new splint wrap. Haha

Did it get crazy at your house about 2:50 this morning?? Did you feel the earthquake and did the animals react to it??

No AC! Oh I couldn't

You do such good work. God bless you and your family and everyone who helps you.

Is it cold up there that no air condition is needed? We cannot live in South Texas without ac.

Bless each of their little hearts!❤️❤️❤️❤️

Bless each of their little hearts!❤️❤️❤️❤️

I'm sure they would love it if you moved out there with them! <3

So cute

I'm sure they wouldn't mind a visit from mamma panda

Aww what cuties! I love the little 3 legged one

So cute laying and eating

Bless your heart...I would die without my ac here in South Carolina 🌴

They're all so cute

Is your show coming back??

Sweet babies I would sleep with all of them

They are so precious

I couldn't do without ac.

Brussels Sprout wants out of his kennel!! I hope the splint is helping his leg to heal. Or did he have surgery? Such a handsome fella! 💙🐕🙏🏻🐾😘

I would love anyone of them or all of them


Is this Otter's last meal at Panda Paws Camp before his new family arrives? We will miss you Otter and Cupid will too!! Enjoy your loving family Otter and Cupid on Monday! ❤️🐕😘🐾

I would sleep right in the floor in there with them. I hate heat.

Oh my gosh Amanda we need to get you an AC unit girl!!!!! All the babies doing fabulous under your wing of course 😍
