Rescue Every Dog in Seattle, Washington's goal is to save the lives of exceptional dogs and other companion animals, which are referred to the shelter by staff members, animal control officers, or veterinary staff. They aim to save outstanding animals in good health or in need of correctable medical assistance or treatment.
Many shelters don’t have sufficient adoption capability or funding to provide adequate space and medical care for the number of animals they receive. Saving highly-adoptable companion animals from euthanasia is Rescue Every Dog’s top priority.
