About Panda Paws Rescue
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.
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.
Yes! Panda Paws Rescue is a registered 501c3 charity and your donations are tax deductible.
Yes, Panda Paws Rescue does occasionally help other species. However, the vast majority of our rescues are dogs!
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.
Donating to Panda Paws Rescue
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 )
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.
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:

Equipment and Surgery
At Panda Paws Rescue we strive to help the animals that are not owned or have someone to advocate for them. We occasionally will help with spay/neuter of owned animals or service animals. However, as a 501c3 Nonprofit Charity, we typically do not pay for medical costs incurred by owned animals.
Panda Paws Rescue uses Eddie’s Wheels For Pets & K9 Carts for the majority of our wheelchair needs. We highly recommend both companies.
Volunteering with Panda Paws Rescue
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.
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.
