FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.

Read More FAQs
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?2019-09-16T14:12:22-07:00

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

Some of you may recognize two of my favorite men, Tony & Daniel! These two are our only foster home and they are known for taking on our neonatal tube fed cleft palate puppies. Together they work around the clock for weeks to save lives. They’re beyond selfless and have the biggest hearts you could ever imagine. Well, two years ago they adopted a French Bulldog named Cayde-6 bounty hunter and stealer of hearts. He was blind but that never slowed him down. He had a type of love that overcame anyone who snuggled him. He was their baby & even though we thought he’d only have a few months to a year due to his medical issues, their love and incredible care gave him much longer than anyone would have ever guessed. Sadly, he recently passed away leaving a massive void in their home and hearts. This all happening just months after they had to say goodbye to their senior Bernese Mountain Dog.

A week before Cayde passed away, Stormy & Colonel Crumb came into our care. Daniel’s text was the first text I received when their photo hit this Facebook page. They deeply wanted to meet them in hopes that one would be a great match for Cayde & Pippa (their Ckcs). Despite their loss, they still wanted to meet Stormy and they fell madly in love the second they scooped her up. She laid flat on her back like a baby in Daniel’s lap. She wanted these two incredible humans to be her forever daddy’s, you could see it!

So.... CONGRATULATIONS Tony, Daniel & Stormy! While she cannot replace Cayde, she surely will fill a lot of the cracks and make a whole new place in your hearts fit just for her! Thank you for all you’ve done for Panda Paws Rescue & for your friendship!

They will be caring for Stormy while we wait for her to be a bit bigger for her heart surgery at OSU. Stormy has a big sister Bernese, Ellie, and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel sister who is OBSESSED with her already, Pippa.

Fun fact: Pippa is our cavy, Garnet’s, littermate!

Holy Moly! Applications for Abe Lincoln are officially CLOSED! WE have received nearly 100 apps in less than 24 hours. I only have one Abe Lincoln but thankfully his home is amongst the apps; I know it. I would encourage everyone who was not chosen for this specific boy to consider giving a home to another amazing Cavalier rescue in need of love:  

The Cavalier Rescue
Cavalier Rescue USA
Cavalier Rescue
Cavalier Rescue of Florida
Cavalier Rescue Foundation

& check on Petfinder.com to see if there are any Cavys available for adoption in your area through another rescue or shelter organization. Thank you! 

If you are chosen as one of the preliminary best matches, I will be in contact ASAP!

Formally meet Abe Lincoln! I named him that because he’s the color of a copper penny, but copper was too obvious. And… That epic beard he has! Yes, that is a 4 inch beard! Abe is a five-year-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel that was a very skinny stray, Completely matted head to tail and covered in flees. He was pulled from the shelter by our lovely rescue partners at Valley Oak SPCA & sent up our way! Thanks to Rozo Dog Spa He is officially clean, all of his mats have been diligently combed out or cut out and with a great diet his coat will come in beautifully over the coming months. This little guy came to us this week under the impression that he’s a little timid. Well, he is not! He is like a puppy all over again! He loves other dogs, cats, kids and he is constantly our little shadow following us everywhere we go! He’s got the most endearing quirks like hearing his babies, toys, around in his mouth and rolling around on his back while talking to the other dogs. He loves grooming the cat just like Garnet does. He’s absolutely perfection! 

We will open up applications on him now… You can apply at www.pandapawsrescue.org. We will shut applications off tomorrow as we expect a very large amount of interest. Abe Lincoln will not be able to go to his forever home until he has been neutered.

Too cute! Cynthia Dove Hollingsworth

So precious!!

Oh be still my heart!!! He is a cutie! Those eyes, ugh. I am a SUCKER for a cavalier. I had to say goodbye to my best friend 2 years ago this week. And I still cry for him. Whoever gets to take him home is lucky!! I’d apply but I have a 2 year old lab mix (insane) a 1 year old human (dogs sidekick) and another baby human due in December.

I want to kiss that face!❤

The plushiest Serta dog bed.... but stiff hardwood is preferred. 😂🤣 #puppiesareweird

The dog version of cats preferring the box.

This is the CUTEST thing I’ve seen ALL DAY!🥰❤️

So cute 🥰

Our Rottie pup has two beds and prefers the laminate flooring or carpet. Although he does like a sofa too 🙈

Awwww her lil back feet are crossed in the back. Kinda looks cute.

Sweet babies

My Rocko prefers the pillows

Well at least they haven't eaten the bed yet. LOL

Awww so very cute.

Frenchies can sleep everywhere 😂

Aww the crossed legs ❤️❤️☺️

My little Ollie dog only uses his bed to hide his chews 😂

Beautiful pups. I just love them. 🐾🐕❤

Good to stretch out the back 😉😁

Sweetie pies. Play hard, sleep hard.

Oh how I relate! My Beagle Chesterfield would never sleep in his custom made Serta Bed! He only would sleep on the floor...go figure...😂

Hehehehe

Zoe Vantieghem das lik Fiji die daar ligt !

Appears to be a "stretching out next to you" matter

How precious are they. Goodnight little ones. 😴

As the weather has gotten colder, my guy will curl up more often now in his bed during the day time, but at night he sleeps just fine stretched out on the floor by my bed. He has always slept between me and the door, even when we travel.
