About Us

Our Mission

Red Waggin' Rescue is a foster-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that rescues and advocates for homeless and abandoned animals in eastern Washington. We exist to save the lives of innocent dogs and cats whose only crime is being uncared for, unwanted, and alone.

Our Rescue

Red Waggin' Rescue was founded in 2012 as a foster-based 501(c)(3) Non-Profit (EIN 45-5455943) that grew out of a need for the City of Connell, located in Eastern Washington, which was without a proper animal shelter and no pet rescue services. Our mission is to rescue abandoned and injured animals and provide routine and emergency veterinary care. Training and socialization, shelter, quality food, loving foster homes, and then on to perfect adoptive homes are all a part of the care that we strive for every animal we rescue. Since 2012, we have rescued thousands of animals. We have volunteers, fosters, and adopters located all across Washington State. We are proud of what we have accomplished together with the help of our community and supporters. Red Waggin' is 100% funded through adoption fees and donations. Every animal deserves to be loved and find a forever home!
