Our Mission

Dog Gone Seattle is a Washington-based nonprofit organization dedicated to saving homeless dogs in high-kill shelters in Washington and beyond through rescue, foster, and adoption. We are a foster-based organization, and our rescue is 100% funded through adoption fees and donations. We believe every dog deserves a chance at a forever home, and we aim to make a difference in the lives of these deserving animals, one dog at a time!


Our motto is Rescue, Respect, Repeat.

How we RESCUE:

We save dogs from high kill shelters in Washington and beyond. Many of our dogs come from California and Texas, where very adoptable dogs are given just days in overcrowded shelters before being euthanized. We bring them to safety and place them in a loving foster home.


Every animal that comes into our rescue will receive veterinary care including spay/neuter, Rabies, DAPPV, Bordetella, heart worm testing, microchipping and grooming prior to adoption. In addition, we evaluate behavioral temperament and compatibility to find the best match for each animal in our care. We respect that each dog has different needs, and tailor or approach to set every animal up for success.

How we REPEAT:

We rely on the help from our community – including people like you – to continue to help these animals in needs. If you are on this page, you’re on the right track. Think adopt, don’t shop! If you are in a position to foster an animal, opening your home to a rescue dog is so rewarding and not as difficult as you may think. And finally, if you’re not in a position to foster or adopt, consider volunteering or donating — our rescue is funded by contributions from the public and adoption fees.

100% of your donation will go directly to help animals in need!
