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

Chickpea Chickpea!!! Aunty Sayde made the little squirt a custom drag bag! This is super slippery and makes moving around much easier for her, especially since she walks on her wrists and not her paw pads due to her front legs being so malformed. She can boogie in it!! Well, Chickpea speed “boogie”. She loves it though! More freedom and she doesn’t have the resistance of her skin on the hardwood. Yay! If you’d like to sponsor her, she could use about 5-6 more of these so we can wash them daily! If so, please email Sayde at Fluffy Shark and Doodlebug Duds!

I am so pleased to announce that our little Spitfire, Pterodactyl, has officially been adopted! Not only adopted… But adopted by a teenager who also was born with Radial Aplasia. We had so many applications on this kitten, so many great ones, but as soon as I read this app I knew this is exactly where she was meant to be! Not only is she going to have a best friend just like her, but she also will have a fellow kitten friend named Supernova & Pterodactyl’s new name is Astroid! While we do all types of species, we don’t commonly have cats in rescues so this was fun and it certainly mixed it up a little bit!

Answer: yes, she won!

She is so stinking cute and feisty!


She feels good ❤️

Oh she is so cute, and all your fur babies are so concerned❤️


Maybe she should be called Chili Pepper. She is adorable and feisty.

I love her so much!

Yes she did..

Oh my stars! 😂🤣😂🤣 You guys are amazing, but Chickpea is stealing the show!!

Chickpea - 1. Humans - 0. LOL!

Omg she is such a little fireball! Love it

So cute and such a sweetie pie!!

That is a demanding little princess. So cute!

She has you wrapped around her pinky. Its adorable

Love ❤️ I do believe she wins... won me over 🤗

Yup, I thin she'd be perfect on a glow-worm shaped doggie chest pouch, just hanging around with whomever gets her! See the world, and always be close. Dunno how to design one: maybe a soft stretchy fabric made sock-like and straps and velcro. Invent, someone!

You know she does lol every time almost lol

yes. I hope so.

Too cute

You need to be her baby mama❤ She needs to stay.

Pick me up NOW 💖🐾💖

Feisty Chickpea is the winner 😁❤️🐾

So awesome!! Gotta pick me up mamma!! Im the baby!!!

I can’t even wait to post this tomorrow… This adoption was so cool! I’m leaving this adoption feeling very accomplished as a humanitarian and rescuer, and advocate for special needs, major medical animals. This home, this couple, they’re amazing dog Harley… I mean honestly, a puzzle could not have come together more perfectly than this! Aiden is an amazing dog. He is a wonderful dog. However, he is definitely a very unique dog to get adopted and the fact that this couple cherishes and loves him as he is and finds his quirkiness endearing, it means the world to me. Harley and Aiden played for hours and could not stop enjoying each other’s company. To see Aiden get the ideal home that he would wish for and to see Harley love his new baby brother… Warms my heart. And, Aiden got carpet… And who knew that Aiden would want carpet as much as he did! He LOVES carpet! Haha  Thank you Holly & Tim for adopting this super sweet baby boy! Welcome to the PPR Family!!

Chickpea is officially accepting applications! I will be crazy strict and careful about where she is placed! I am completely obsessed and over protective of Chickpea! Chickpea is a two-legged 9 month old, 4 pound French Bulldog. Her entire body is malformed and she is special needs. She is practically an infant for life! Chickpea will have a slippery drag bag to help her get around and for outside fun as well as a wheelchair. She isn’t very active but she does like to play and her short adventures. It’s important that she always has a blanket rolled up for her to rest on at a 45° angle. She will require a home where someone is home or with her MOST of the time. She sleeps in a baby playpen and will always need one. This puppy is insanely cute and will always be the size of an 8 week old puppy but she is also work. She is carried most of the time and her lungs/spinal malformations require her to be held in the a position that’s “just right”. If you feel like your home could be the perfect match, please apply online. However, please do NOT apply out of impulse! We truly need someone who can help make her life as great as possible despite all of her physical setbacks/issues.

Ps - you must adopt her glowworm too... they’re a bonded pair of twins!

Apparently somebody is on one of my fan pages saying that Chickpea passed away… This is absolutely NOT TRUE! She is alive, doing very well, healing wonderfully, her bruising is minimal and she is watching a movie cuddled up in my bed! THE END.

Love that face!

I was so sad. Thank goodness

The look on her face. She’s absolutely adorable!!

Whew! So happy to hear this!

She is so cute!! 💗

SO HAPPY to hear this!!! Thank you for the update. 💜💜💜

That face! She's clearly not a fan of the rumor...yup, she's looking at you! Slay all day, Chickpea (and Amanda)!!

Oh thank goodness this post scared me for a second! Bless chickpea

You go girl❤️❤️both of you😘bud says hi!

Go Chickpea! You’re a little fighter

Some folks on those fan pages are a little worrisome. Hope you guys take the proper precautions.

She is so cute!

Oh, I wanna snuggle that baby. She's so lucky to have you in her corner ♥️

Why do people make up stories that are not true? Nasty.

She seriously has the sweetest little face ❤️

And wondering why you are not loving on her

Some people are just so bored. They should go do some laundry or dust.. Or go read a book.. Love her, your the best ❤️
