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?2019-09-16T14:12:22-07:00

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

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.

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

Comment on Facebook

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...😂


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.

Sweet dreams! Today Jade and I made it through a little over 400 emails. We are working so hard to get back to everybody. Thank you for your patience and also your understanding. Obviously, our priority are animals in need before anything else. But let it be known right here, right now that we genuinely appreciate all of your support because without that we couldn’t help all of these ultimate underdogs. Without your love and support we wouldn’t be able to educate the masses across the globe. So, thank you so much!

S.O.S!! Our incredible partners at Valley Oak SPCA Need your help! If you have one of these crates, in any size, they could put it to great use! I know a lot of people buy them and don’t ever use them or as their animal outgrows them they buy a different size… But we need these for transports. When we send animals up north from California, the animals coming to our care & the crates get stuck here. Last week we did a transport from Washington to California and the car was filled with crates. No animals just returning crates. But we could always use more so that we can save more! If you have one of these lying around, please consider donating it to Valley Oak Spca! Because they’re a nonprofit you can get a tax donation for the value of your crate too!! Thank you!

Here’s their Amazon wish list with lots of these crates on it: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1SYLOZQ82RMEA/ref=hz_ls_biz_ex

Or here’s their mailing address:

How do we get it to you?

do they have an amazon wish list?

We have one, but we live in Wisconsin!!! Where can we send it or donate to ?

Can we donate it to them but deliver it to you to get to them?

I'll ask my husband to check our garage, but I believe we still have the 2 we used when we moved to WA from CA nearly 3 years ago! (They'd be a smaller size, since both of our dogs are right around 15 lbs).

I have a small one and large one you can have. My dogs have both passed on.

If you can post an address or link I'm sure many of us would be happy to send it through Amazon!!

I have a medium sized and a small sized crate you can have. How should I get them to you? I can deliver this coming weekend if that’s helpful

Valley Oak SPCA amazon wish list is at a.co/1gQ9Zfr

with us rather than sending them back we sell them locally and instead forward the $$ to whoever needs more crates. Have found it saves us way more money than the cost to send them back.

Dang, have a beautiful one... live in San Antonio TX.


Sorry don't have any.

Just bought one on their Amazon wish list!!!

I just sent 5 over to a Valley Oak from Amazon. They should receive them by Wednesday. Good luck!

I have 2 of the bigger ones but I’m up here in Tacoma

These come apart, probably cheaper for shipping if you take them apart, put the small pcs in a baggie, tape them to the bigger part so they don’t get lost, and then mail it all out.

Facebook marketplace is where i found plenty of carriers & cages for some local rescues

How does the tax donation work I have lot that im selling

I do a free crate program in Vernonia . I may have a few to spare. You guys take them down for them to have or Panda Paws need them ...

I have a small one I'll send!

I am in Albany and have a e tra large one. Used once to ship a pitbull rescue from Puna to Albany after the volcano eruptions. If anyone is driving from our area of Oregon to Cali let me know. I do not have a box large enough to ship it.

Will drop off at least one on Thursday I live in Fresno so I have to do it when I am heading that way

I may also have a small create

Hey Amanda I live here in washougal and we have a cage like this and we have never used it. Wanted to know if you guys could use it?

Groot loves his puppies

Absolutely breath taking to see how much your fur babies love each and every rescue that comes to be helped. So beautiful... <3


Awwww 🥰

Gotta love watching them at play time!!! "Stand Your Ground"😂😂😂😂😂

Ya gotta love play time, happy little sweeties.

They are so cute Amanda.

Que hermosuras. 😍

So much snorting

What are your pups wearing for Halloween? I don’t dress my dogs but I do dress my goats. Happy Halloween from 2CrazyGoatLadies.

Frenchies make everything awkwardly adorable!

Cuteness overload ❤

Totally adorable!❤️❤️

I love when puppies are super awkward!

It is always so heart warming to you see a strong big dog play gently as to not hurt the other.

I think you spelled adorable wrong!😜😜😂😂😂😍😍😍

So sweetM

I love your dogs

I'm in love ❤

I love Bullfrog! What an amazing dog he is!

Love what she does you rock

The puppy is so cute

I LOVE how Bullfrog takes in the babies as his own. What a sweet baby. ❤

Too cute. Thank you.

Lots and lots of Boompleberry raised pups

A beautiful pack playing together 😘💝😘💝😘💝

Boompy just loves all his babies.

I watched that last night. I so want a small dog.

So many! He loves all his babies!

What a wild, crazy, chaotic, loving life you live 🥰❤️

He's the best "momma" dog ever!

Such a great episode ❤

Wa that Lapue or another kitty?

Love your sweatshirt!

What a love bug ❤❤❤❤

Love come on cat

You named him! CB for Crazy Boy!

Bullfrog is the best "mom" to all the babies.

Awesome. So sweet

Adorable! I'm sorry, but I have to ask this. Why all the makeup on your tattoos? Your tats are gorgeous and I don't understand why they are covered in makeup and faded out in these videos.

I LOVED watching GROOT with him❤️

Amanda, you are such a beautiful person and I really love what you are doing for the fur babies. I think that the little "Prince" should do well. I also think his name should be Prince, as he looks like my son's puppy that he had which was named Princess; She was a Papillon black and white and the smartest little girl to guard my son at the age of 6. She saved his life too and most likely all of us due to a fire and her barking behind the bedroom door at 2 a.m. (Thank you for asking for names for these rescued babies)

Alright! I’m going to overload you guys with posts over the next couple days. These two babies are coming to Panda Paws Rescue Tuesday! First we have a blind husky mix female puppy. Clearly no personality in that girl at all (sarcasm)! She is eight weeks old and will soon be looking for a home that can keep her safe and get to work on her puppy training! Next, we have a ruby male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel! He came in as a stray in really bad condition, covered in mats, his toenails had completely grown in a full circle and he’s very skinny & scared. We will let him “thaw out” here and get used to our pack, let us get to know his personality and eventually he too will be accepting applications. We don’t know his exact age but we’re guessing somewhere between 4 - 7 years old. Once he’s here we can dig a little bit deeper and try to narrow that down based off of his teeth. 

Now, the fun part, name suggestions! And go:

Miss Daisy and Copper

Carmel for the husky!

Chorizo for the red guy.

Mr. Snuffleupagus for the spaniel. Honeydew for the husky

You're going to kill me with this husky...(swoon) 😍

Claws for the Spaniel

He looks more cocker spaniel to me but Bless both their hearts!! They couldn’t be in better hands!

Birdie for the girl and Red Velvet for the boy.

Finn, Reggie

A blind baby and a Cavalier... Amanda's dream duo! Such cute babies. I say Pumpkin Spice for the girl and Cooper for the boy.

Sienna and Cooper

The husky should be butterscotch and the spaniel could be honeybear. They are adorable.

Dawn Lynn a cavalier

Carmel for husky and copper or Leo for spaniel

Siku for the husky dash for the spaniel

Yuki and Wiley!

Jennifer Butte Carol Butte Sammy T Tom Butte

Husky girl - Marshmallow CK boy - CK 💕

Poor sweet angels

Julianne Hough needs the spaniel. Thats her favorite type of dog!

Echo and comet 🙂

While I am here. Can I ask for some advise from anyone?! I took in a very skinny 2lb male chihuahua. Sweet boy, but very territorial over me. How do I break him from aggressive behaviors when another one in my pack gets close to me?
