We have been rescuing dogs since early 2019. Our main goal is to help our out of state rescue partners who are having a harder time finding homes. With our second goal being a second alternative to surrendering your pet to the shelter.
Since we do not have a physical shelter, we partner with Wet Noses Dry Paws doggie daycare where we are able to showcase them in a playful, happy, loving environment with other loving dogs in our community giving them the chance to shine while also providing mental and physical stimulation where some over crowded shelters do not have the resources to do so.
We have a 7 day trial with no strings attached to ensure the dog is a good fit in your home before fully committing.
Most of our dogs come from Texas. We also take a few flights a month to help our street dogs in Mexico. Locally we do take in surrenders and try to pull dogs from Yakima Humane Society monthly.

Our Adoptable Pups
What dogs are in our program? Most of our dogs come to us with limited information from their rescuers. (although some come with lots). We get all sorts of breeds and ages. Our biggest goal when pulling from partnering rescues is that they are dog friendly. That way they can fully part-take in all the daycare activities. All dogs are up to date with vaccinations and microchipped.
Who are their rescuers?
One of our main rescue partners is a rescue in Dallas which is all foster based. These puppers come with lots of information and are coming straight from someone else home. Their medical and how they are in a home is very well rounded.
In the summer months we partner with Dog is my Co-pilot where they fly us dogs directly from a huge shelter in El Paso, Tx. They all see a vet before flying but typically come to us with limited information on how they will do in a home environment. They are wonderful dogs who typically excel with crate training, self-soothing, and leash skills.
Our Mexico partner is Adoptando who we have worked with for years. They are based out of Guadalajara. They are doing all the hands on rescuing either surrendered, abandoned, or found. They get them vetted and then foster them until they are ready to fly north!They all see a vet 10 days before flying and typically come with some good information on how they will do in a home setting.
What vaccines do they come with?
All our dogs will have the required rabies, DHPP, and bordetella. We dewormer dogs in our facility once a month and they receive a topical flea and tick/monthly. We do not do any of their vetting here unless something is presenting itself as a health concern as they have already been vetted prior to arriving.
*Puppies sometimes will not have rabies if they are not of age.
