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.

Do I always cry when an animal gets adopted, not always.... did I cry when Tuffy drove off?? Absolutely! I love this short stuff so much but I’m so so happy seeing him get two human boys & a big brother dog to give him his second happily ever after. Even though Tuffy didn’t live a lavish life before, it’s clear he was very loved! Now he gets to be loved on for the rest of his years by an amazing family who doesn’t see his scars, but sees his happy demeanor and heart! What an amazing ambassador for the pitbull breed Tuffy is! He’s the best boy! 💙 (and yes, he got to keep his one and only favorite toy - his drumstick from barkbox! Ps- if you got one this month in your Bark box and your dog doesn’t love it, I know a squatter body piblet that would love to have a back up Drummy)

Awe sweet Tuffy. Happy life in your furever home

Congrats Tiffy. Happy Ever After.

Awwwwh so happy for him!!!!


Congratulations 👏 👏 👏

Awww Crying happy tears! You can't keep them all but I'd be the same way! Congrats to Tuffy and his new family.

Love this ❤️

Aww. He has his toy with him for his picture. I know his former owner would be so happy to see Tuffy being loved and cared for.

If you contact barkbox, they might just send him a couple back ups (and maybe even a few others for the rescue)

Happy for him

What an adorable guy! Happy furever home Tuffy!

Yay Tuffy!

So precious

We have a back he could have!

Carrie Raven Res Qu ❤️❤️❤️

God bless them


Awwwwww I'm so happy for him!!! I'm crying!!!

Wishing you and your family every blessing at Thanksgiving with wishes for staying safe and healthy!


I walked in to the shelter last Sat and was so ready to see my Ronan love, but he wasn't there. I was shocked to see my adorable bonded gal pals and I said "hi Zion, hi Ziggy, I'll get you girls in a bit! But where's Ronan?!" I found out he had been adopted the day prior FINALLY!! I cried happy tears! So I understand and this makes me so happy! Here's my Ronan boo!

So happy for Tuffy with his new family a happy ever after

Pawsome! This warms my heart <3

I’m crying tooo🥲 Such a beautiful spirit he has. Wishing lots to love to this pup🥰❤️❤️❤️

This handsome fella is officially neutered and ready for adoption! Coconut is 3 months old, deaf and gets along great with everyone! He can hold a full conversation and as much as he loves playing, he equally loves snuggling. If you think he’s a great addition as an indoor only kitten to your home, please apply at www.pandapawsrescue.org. With WA & OR both back on lockdown due to covid, we are seeking an OR/WA home for him. As travel and flying here would be higher risk and we’re setting an example by doing our part. I hope all of you understand.

Beautiful Baby ❤️

I had a deaf Maltese..didnt slow him down one bit.i taught him sign language.he knew sit. Shake. Come..and roll over

Omg 😳 i want

Olivia Aviles a friend for puck!

Prayers for Coconut to get a forever home soon 🙏🙏🙏

I am in Canada 🇨🇦. I wish ... what a love ❤️

This cutie will have no problem finding his furever (pun intended) home. Those eyes say “I want to snuggle and play and give/get all the loves.”

I love him soooooo!! But husband won't allow another cat (he does the litter box because of my asthma, so I can't complain too much! Lol)

I wish I wasn't in California as I would adopt him in a heartbeat

Gee coconut is not a good name for him now since he's nut-less.😆

Beautiful baby!!

He is so very handsome!!

Love him! Sending snuggles from NY.

😫 I would have loved to adopt him into my family!

No residual hearing? Our cat (Who looked like this but with one blue eye) had some hearing on the gold side, her sibling (2 blue eyes) had very slight residual hearing to hear louder sounds.

Wishing a great home for this beaty.

Coconut is so handsome. I will keep him in prayer that a loving and fun family will adopt him soon.

He's absolutely beautiful!

What a cutie! <3 Elizabeth Peterson LaSalle

I had a deaf, white manx cat. He was the coolest, most human cat ever. He rode the vacuum, loved car rides, slept in the bathroom sink. Got out once, we lived in a mobile home park. Looked all over, couldn't call for him as he was deaf. 2 weeks later, I turn into the park, he's sitting in the middle of the road, I stop, he climbs in and home we went like nothing happened.

I think he should be a package deal with Tuffy.

🤗 I've had a deaf cat before, they're wonderful 🥰

He’s beautiful

Good morning! Little Thumper has been on this new eye medication and so far we are seeing positive results! He will have a recheck soon & we’re hoping this means he can keep both of his eyes! Can you even handle how cute he is?! He has a silly sweet personality that matches too!

Friends forever

That's adorable.

Maybe they will get adopted together

How sweet!!😍

I want to come live with you and all Those babies lol

The adorable meter is off the chart. Tuffy is so sweet and sprinkling on the coconut is too much. ❤️❤️❤️

Coconut reminds me of my big furry purry boy (who also loves dogs)

She is so sweet

How cute!

I hope they can get a home together.

That is just the sweetest video!!


Aw, a love connection. Adopting pet pairs is a great idea for bonded animals--- I hope they get a home together.

Who wouldn't be obsessed with a low rider mix??? 😂🥰

Coconut reminds me of my BooBoo. He was rescued from a feral colony and is the biggest love ever

The love meter broke when these two met. 💜How sweet are they ? 🥰

To clarify: they aren’t a bonded pair.... Coconut just loved the pibble. Tuffy ignores him. lol

Robin Lotz Harrison

Oh my goodness ♥️🐾♥️‼️ this is the exact kind of kitty I need in me and my dogs life!

Old souls find each other, no matter what form they are in.

What a long long day! But seeing underdogs like Tuffy living the dream makes it all worth it!!!!

Comment on Facebook

So. Much. Yes! 💜💜💜

Teasing me with his short stubby legs <3

I hope his forever home is with you. He seems to fit in perfect with your pack. 😊😊

Amanda, how do I message you personally? Don't really care to put all my business on here for the world, Lol. ☺️🤗 It is kinda important, if you have a moment. I would be so grateful! 🤗

Yay Tuffy.

Tuffy needs a good life. He's a good, good boy! ❤️

My little Rocket, looks like Tuffy... hello from Acapulco

So cute Tuffy

Him so cute!

Praying Tuffy gets a wonderful forever home soon! 🙏🙏 He’s been through so much 😪

Yes my girl Judy is a underdog. I have had her for 3 1/2 yrs(I got her at. almost 8 months old and she came for horrible abuse and a drug house) and for the 1st time she started sniffing other big dogs and letting other big dogs sniff her without freezing and jumping when they would sniff her back side, she still don’t like it though. So here is to the Underdogs like Tuffy and Judy...Judy has medical issues and she is my Princess

You are an amazing dedicated person😇. The animals are so lucky to have you

He is so cute !

Yay for Tuffy...he is so cute!

Looks like a very happy dog!!

Those eye's. Who wouldn't fall in love.

You are doing a terrific job!😘🐾🥰

Such a precious face

Looks like Tuffy

He will soon have a great home of his own.


He is adorable

I love him!!! Such a cutie!!

Good evening! I am excited to announce that Tuffy & Bolt are NO LONGER accepting applications. I feel very confident that we have "the one" amongst these incredible applications.

We are still accepting applications for our 3 month old kitten, Coconut, with the most amazing different colored eyes. He is deaf! He is also a talker! Coconut is a very easy going kitten and such a lover!

We are NOT accepting applications quite yet on our pug, Thumper, with eye issues until we know what we need to do or what we are looking at with his eyes moving forward after this new medication.

We are NOT accepting applications on ANY of Hazel's puppies from her "nutty litter". We will open the apps for pups once we know their personalities closer to mid December. They WILL NOT be ready for homes in time for Christmas and we actually don't advocate for that either. They will be ready for homes in early January.

Hazel, momma to said above pups, is accepting applications!

What happened to your knee?? Why are you wearing a brace? are you OK?

What about Pumpkin ?? (I know it’s spelled differently .. But my phone will not let me spell it right . I despise spell check sometimes. ) . Are you guys adopting her out ?? Or is Jade keeping her ?? Since she’s probably bonded to Jade .

I am heart broken I emailed about bolt and no one answered me

If we already filled out an application for Thumper, will we need to do another one once that lil cutie becomes available?

I love you guys even more for not doing the whole "Christmas puppy" thing! Xoxox

what breed are the nut pups?

I am in love with Thumper 🥰🥰🥰

If I didn't already have so many dogs I would absolutely fill out an application for the sweet pug baby. My little girl is partially blind in both eyes and I bet they would make great siblings. Plus our puggle lost his sight from cataracts and we cared for him until we were able to get his surgery. Unfortunately one eye didn't heal properly so my home is very comfortable with pugs with sight issues.

What happened to your Show

This is so hard not applying for Coconut, I’m wanting him! I already have 3 cats in a tiny house though so better quit while I’m ahead.

Prayers for all of you! Thank you for all that you do.

Thank you for speaking out against “puppies for Christmas”. That’s exactly how my sweet Ruby landed in rescue before I adopted her 8 years ago...

How far out/away would you consider an application for the puppies?

You always do the best for the babies!

Yay 👏

Continuous prayers for you, your family, and the ministry of Panda Paws Rescue❣️

I'm sad that i can't adopt because I live a few states away 😧

When are yall coming back on tv

Blessings to you and your wonderful family and people that help you 🙏 ❤

Happy Thanksgiving and Hollydays to all from Bayamon,Puerto Rico USA 🇺🇸

Is your show going to have another season??

I just wanted to say.. Amanda is the best person ever. So careful and conscientious about finding the perfect home for each animal. If only ALL breeders, shelters, etc. were this careful. Amanda and her family are The Best!!!

You and your family and friends are amazing. I know you will find the perfect homes.

So today Thumper was going to have both eyes removed BUT Dr. Ward spoke with an ophthalmologist who agreed there’s one more medication to try to try to save his eyes. We will know if it’s successful in 7-10 days. If not, then surgery. However, if it is successful then even though he may always have some scarring and blindness, his cornea will grow be healthy tissue over time and he’ll get to keep his eyes and the vision he has. They also agree that he is NOT painful! So all in all great news & now we give his eyes TLC and east & see!

Great news!

Love following all of your posts. Keep up the great work Amanda!

Sending prayers that things go well for Thumper!🙏🙏🐾🙏🙏❤


I'm praying for him!

that sounds encouraging, would be nice to save his eyes if at all possible


Loving that belly 🥰


Awe praying all goes well sweetheart! ❤️

Hope it all goes well. Kiss the beautiful baby belly!

Yayyyyy such great news!!!!! Postive thoughts little thumper!

Need to find him some cute sunglasses if they can save them. ❤️


Prayers for complete healing.

Definitely worth the effort of attempt, if it may help him. Adorable little pup. My elderly Border Collie, had pretty bad vision at the end of his life- but he didn't mind- and it was good enough for him to be useful. Hopefully this goes well-- but even if it doesn't work, at least you tried. Your work is certainly rewarding 🙂

Keeping my fingers crossed for great outcome 🤞


Great news keeping my fingers crossed ❤

That's great prayers for him

That is great news!! We are cheering Thumper on either way 🙂 no eyes, or eyes ❤️

Prayers for you Thumper.So cute.

Sending positive thoughts, prayers and good vibes for his eyes to heal. <3

Love that there is still one more thing to try!!
