NW Snowdog Rescue (NWSR) was formed, in July 2014 for several reasons: Over the last 2-3 years practically all the Siberian Husky rescues in the NW either closed down or scaled back (due to age) or went on hiatus (due to family situations). So some longtime volunteers felt that something needed to be done to fill the gap. NWSR is 100% volunteer operated.
The non-profit registration with the State of Washington has been done and we have also received the federal Determination Letter approving the organizations 501(c)(3) status. Consequently, all donations to our rescue are tax deductible.
NWSR does not have a shelter location, we are entirely dependent on foster homes, hence our fosters are spread all over the NW – WA/OR/ID. This unfortunately limits us in the number of dogs we have in rescue at a given time.
All of our rescues are fully vetted: spayed/neutered, vaccinated (incl. rabies) and microchipped. It is not unusual that dogs will need additional medical care.
HOW WE OPERATE
All dogs are microchipped and spayed/neutered while in the care of our rescue. All immediate medical needs are addressed before a dog goes to its forever home.
All adoptive homes must undergo a yard check. This ensures that all of our little escape artists are safely contained in their new homes.
All parts of our organization are volunteers - from our foster homes, to those that help with transporting pups, and even our Board of Directors – every single person involved with our organization does it for the love of the dogs. Without our community, we would not exist.
