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

Such a cute pup

Weโ€™ve waited a long, long time to finally pick the happily ever after family for Professor Clovis & Iโ€™m beyond excited to say he landed in Miniature Schnauzer heaven! Laurie and John have had many Shmoopits over the years and they are ecstatic to welcome this chocolate morsel into their pack. Heโ€™ll get to go to work with mom, glamping in sunny weather and most importantly - he has a family that thoroughly understands and is prepared for the medical issues that can arise in his breed. Congratulations everyone!! After having this guy for four months it seems weird that heโ€™s moved on but I honestly couldnโ€™t be happier about his future & fam!

Sweet dreams everyone!! Aggie makes me smile and Iโ€™m grateful to have the smallest part of her happily ever after. Her moms are wildly dedicated to her, her deafness and her blindness.

Beautiful dog and I’m sure she doesn’t care about having moms. Dear God, let people live and love. It is my belief that people nor animals should be pigeonholed. God Bless.

Beautiful dog

They are all adorable!

Very cool with her blue eyes and very pink ears.

That explains why Beast has a little sun burn on his face ๐Ÿคฃ She is so adorable. The pink and black nose remind me of Oink and Cumi (delicious), those ice blue eyes are to die for and that dear in the headlights expression just sent me over the edge, haha. <3 Your offspring are not bad either :p xo

Sweet! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™‚โค

This week we *hopefully* have Mai Tai, Professor Clovis & Lily Rose going to their forever homes! I am going to miss ALL of them. I deeply love each one.... Mai Tai is my lady! She is pure magic in a dog body. There's something about her and I already know it'll feel like "the one that got away" but I can't add a dog to my pack right now. Lily Rose has my heart too! She brings me so much joy every single day. When she lights up with excitement you cannot help but get giddy with her. Her pure happiness for life is intoxicating. Professor Clovis has been with me for over 3 months! He has given me grey hairs through his health care, surgery and recovery. He came here a wild heathen and he's leaving a dignified young man! He has taught me a TON and for that I am eternally grateful. The knowledge gained will save another life in the future because of him. So neat! This is the best part of rescue.... watching the happily ever afters come together! <3 ... See MoreSee Less

So excited these nuggets get their fur-ever homes!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ


Schnauzers are unique and wonderful babies

To infinity and beyond!!! That’s how much you love all the fur babies !! ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’—

It’s always so hard letting go but we can help many more to finding a forever home!

I will miss the posts on Lily Rose. She is so much like our ET, Katie. I wish I had room for another....but we have a full house. Wishing Lily Rose much happiness and love. She is a precious little girl.

You are a great transition MOMMYโฃ๏ธ Luv all fur babies... Being a mom of a rescue, I can’t thank people enough for the work that is done to save these sweet being’s... ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿถ Keep Keeping Onโ€ผ๏ธ โœŒ๏ธ & โค๏ธ PEOPLE...

Your just amazing the love you give each and everyone of them babies! They are lucky to have had their time with you to love on them! They are all so ready for their families because of all you do!! Thank you so much for being you!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜˜

U constantly amaze me!

You are so strong! I'd want to keep all of them!

Is Lily rose the Catahoula

You are amazing!!! I love seeing the love you give the “ underdogs “, being the voice that they need. Mad love & appreciation ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก

You are amazing at what you do ..each of these babies has a piece of you that they will always have...good job Mama Panda ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

You rock you are just so fricking awesome

Will Prof. Clovis need more surgery in the future or is he ok now? He is so adorable. Also, is he a puppy or will he always be that size because of his illness? I'm sure you will miss all of them so much. I think people who can foster are heroes. I couldn't foster because I couldn't give them back. I get very attached quickly.

I'm happy and sad for all involved as I know those furbabies will miss Amanda and her crew as well.

You have been such a blessing to all of these babies that they have a piece of your heart!

Good luck and best wishes to all the babies. The two hardest things in rescue are letting them go: to their new home and heaven๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

You have made such an incredible difference for these pups. Well done! ๐Ÿ’–

Amanda you are so special to all those precious pups and the families who gets your rescues are very lucky!!! Sending love from Canada♥๏ธ

Amazing, but bittersweet. You have gone above and beyond to help these sweet puppers.

Wish you could keep Lilly Rose, she so st peace with you. It must be so hard when your world changes and you can't see ๐Ÿ’•

Pure inspiration and love..Thank you for all that you do for the fur babies ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ž

Miss Sweet Roll is the only little lady still accepting applications! She is a 14 week old Catahoula Leopard Dog and she is 100% deaf. This little lady is a perfect mix of puppy play energy and cuddles. She enjoys the outdoors and greenies! Sweet Roll is a baby still so she is socialized with everything under the sun meaning she is good with kids, cats, dogs, the works. She may be a bit much for an infant in the home because shes just a baby but she would love to have kids or another dog to play with. Sweet Roll is doing well with her basic training but will require an owner to continue working with her so she can be the best adult dog she can be. Sweet Roll is too large to fly now in cabin as a carry on so we are looking for an adopter in the Pacific Northwest -or- a family that will drive to WA State to adopt her and safely bring her back home. Sweet Roll is UTD on all vaccines, HW Negative, spayed and ready to go. If you think your home is the perfect fit, please apply at www.PandaPawsRescue.org
