Northwest Wag Rescue

EIN: 92-0497727


NorthWest Wag Rescue is a local nonprofit dog rescue that focuses on assisting dogs in finding their second chance at life, love and happiness. There are too many dogs that are abandoned, mistreated and malnourished and our goal is to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome these beautiful creatures. With the help of other rescue groups, primarily in Mexico, California, and New Mexico we will partner with them to assist in finding the dogs their forever home in Washington or surrounding areas. These dogs will be rehabilitated, vaccinated, altered and cared for until they can successfully make their way to Washington. With the help of local fosters or adoptive families, these animals will be able to find their new, deserved lives.
