When you adopt a dog you save a life! There are so many wonderful adoptable dogs that are needlessly euthanized every year in overcrowded shelters due to pet overpopulation – by adopting a dog, instead of purchasing from a backyard breeder or an online pet store, you are saving a life! At Dog Gone Seattle, we pride ourselves on matchmaking potential adopters with a dog suited to a family’s environment, activity level, household, and more. We want to ensure that every dog in our rescue goes to a well-matched home and for that reason, we offer a full refund of adoption fees if the dog is not a good match. Our dogs undergo behavioral evaluations in foster homes, which allow us to learn about the dog’s personality and compatibility, and ensure a good match for the dog and the adopter. Fosters are vested in a good placement for the dog and they are a great resource for finding your forever companion!
