Saturday, October 18th

Some of our dogs posted online may be available for you to meet. If you are interested in a specific dog, the first step toward adoption from PUP is to email a completed adoption application (Download Word Doc version OR Download RTF version) to Adopt@pupdogrescue.org now for pre-approval and contact us to ensure the dog will be there.

An approved application will be required prior to taking your new dog home. Please email a completed adoption form to Adopt@pupdogrescue.org today and we will process it as soon as possible. Although you will also have the opportunity to fill out an application at the event, you will need pre-approval to complete an adoption. Our adoption application is available in two forms for download: Download Word Doc version OR Download RTF version.
If you already have an approved application on file with PUP, please email our adoption coordinator, trish@pupdogrescue.org, to let her know which dog you are interested in meeting. We’ll want to have your application on hand. We look forward to seeing you there!

Vote for PUP as the Best Pet Rescue in Western WA!

Why vote for People United for Pets (PUP) as the best? We keep our focus on the animals in our rescue program, providing the best care possible while learning about them and their needs. In so doing, we are able to match their needs with their adopters. Here are a few examples:

Karma was found in a trap by an Animal Control Officer. She was in great need of medical care when she came to us. We are happy to announce she is now ready to find her very own home and family. We suspect Karma would vote for PUP as the best. (Check out her before and after photos, below):

When Rodney came to PUP, we wondered how anyone could look at him every day and not do anything to stop his suffering. After months of care, he met a star and became the star of his very own home! We have to think Rodney would vote for PUP, too. (Before and after photos below):

“Enough is enough,” video stands up to dogfighting

Love this video by Paw Justice! This video demonstrates the lifestyle of dogfighting and how it affects everyone involved, even responsible dog owners. Dogfighting is a felony in all 50 states because it causes immeasurable suffering to animals, and promotes insensitivity to that suffering and enthusiasm for violence. Dogs used in these events often die of blood loss, shock, dehydration, exhaustion, or infection hours or even days after the fight. Other animals are often sacrificed as well. Please share this video with your social networks and raise awareness about the harsh reality of dogfighting and what YOU can do to prevent it.

“Loved the fact that the bikers came in to save the day! It helps to illustrate one thing that pits and humans have in common. Don’t judge a book by its cover! He/she may look intimidating, but under that hard shell beats a heart of pure gold!!”

What can I do to help stop dogfighting?

  • Learn how to spot the signs of dogfighting. If you suspect dogfighting activity, alert your local law enforcement agency and urge officials to contact The HSUS for practical tools, advice and assistance.
  • Post our dogfighting reward posters [PDF] in your community. For free posters, send us an email (include your name, address and the number of posters you’d like). Learn about our Pets for Life program and how to get involved in your community.
  • If you live in one of the states where being a spectator or other aspects of dogfighting is still a misdemeanor, please write to your state legislators and urge them to make it a felony.
  • Share videos like the above with your social networks and friends!
