FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.

Congratulations to our big squishy noggin hammerhead, Rita Rootbeer and her forever family! Her new momma, Ryan, grew up with Sharpeis but she hasn’t had one in many years. When she saw Rita Rootbeer she instantly knew she was the one to fill in the missing puzzle piece to their family. Mai tai and Mojito welcomed her instantly with open paws!  
Ryan is a 2 time cancer survivor and has recently retired from being a vet tech & she’s looking forward to being a full time dog mom! We will all miss her so much but we are thrilled she landed in the perfect home for her!

Daily poop-ups in this house with 2 rescues down under.

Little "Stinker"...

Nasty

She’s getting so much bigger!

Same thing!

She looks as if she is saying what the heck woman? Why are you filming me pooping? LOL

My puppers would get embarrassed if you saw her pooping. She’d look away and her ears would turn down. So I’d leave and peek, she’d go back to her normal pooping self. I can’t imagine what she’d think if I brought out my camera…😅

This is a common every day sight for me! 🤣

What a nice poopy😂

what a little cutie

Ahh, that feels so much better!! Lol

There is an Instagram page called pooping pooches. You need to submit this to them. Lol.

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.

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.

Congratulations to our big squishy noggin hammerhead, Rita Rootbeer and her forever family! Her new momma, Ryan, grew up with Sharpeis but she hasn’t had one in many years. When she saw Rita Rootbeer she instantly knew she was the one to fill in the missing puzzle piece to their family. Mai tai and Mojito welcomed her instantly with open paws!  
Ryan is a 2 time cancer survivor and has recently retired from being a vet tech & she’s looking forward to being a full time dog mom! We will all miss her so much but we are thrilled she landed in the perfect home for her!

We may have a liver shunt kitten if he makes it through the night.

Happy Monday!!! Phew! What a whirlwind weekend in Michigan fundraising at a three day event to benefit Panda Paws Rescue & Cherryland Humane Society! There was endless laughter, prizes, pups, great food and great wine but most of all great animal lovers with hearts of gold! I want to give a gigantic, heartfelt thank you to my life partner, Kelly Neumann, & Neumann Law Group for co-hosting this event and not only matching the first $10,000 raised but for also encouraging other incredible attorneys and firms to pitch in to help the animals!

I would love to thank Carter Oosterhouse, Amy Smart, Todd Oosterhouse, Jill Terralavoro and the whole staff at Bonobo Winery for allowing us to throw this event at their stunning, delicious winery with the most breathtaking views! I want to thank Tawny Hammond, owner of Wind Dancer Traverse City Charters, for donating the sailing adventures on Saturday and for ALL that you do with Best Friends Animal Society & animal welfare!!

To my team here at Camp PPR, for rolling with the punches, grinding away even with different timezones and travel, for making the event run seamlessly and for turning around less than 24 hours later to head out to Colorado & Montana for animal rescue work because it's never ended! Thank you to our teen daughters, Gerty & Jade, for holding down the fort so us power moms can do boss things!

Last and certainly not least, thank you to those who donated to the cause with prizes or food!

Daily poop-ups in this house with 2 rescues down under.

Little "Stinker"...

Nasty

She’s getting so much bigger!

Same thing!

She looks as if she is saying what the heck woman? Why are you filming me pooping? LOL

My puppers would get embarrassed if you saw her pooping. She’d look away and her ears would turn down. So I’d leave and peek, she’d go back to her normal pooping self. I can’t imagine what she’d think if I brought out my camera…😅

This is a common every day sight for me! 🤣

What a nice poopy😂

what a little cutie

Ahh, that feels so much better!! Lol

There is an Instagram page called pooping pooches. You need to submit this to them. Lol.
