PET RESCUE AND ADOPTION
We are proud to partner with and support several pet rescue and adoption organizations in the Olympic Peninsula. It is important to us that we educate our clients on ethical and safe pet adoption avenues as well as provide resources for reporting or rehabilitating abused pets.
The purpose of the Welfare for Animals Guild is to protect animals from neglect, abuse and exploitation, to advocate for their interest and welfare; and to inspire awareness and compassion for the animals whose world we share.
The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society (OPHS) is an open admission shelter. It is dedicated to maintaining and improving the health and well being of all surrendered, lost, abandoned, neglected and abused companion animals of Clallam County. OPHS serves as a conduit for helping lost animals reunite with their owners, as well as helping adoptable animals find new owners.
Peninsula Friends of Animals is a no-kill rescue group. They prevent the birth of unwanted cats and dogs through progressive spay/neuter and educational programs. And to place as many homeless, neglected or abused animals as possible in safe, loving, permanent homes.
Precious Life Animal Sanctuary, founded in September 1999 by Ralph & Caryl Turner, have been actively involved in local, state and national animal protection issues for many years. They have rescue dogs, cats and farm animals.
Linda Allen and several members of her staff at Pacific Northwest Veterinary Hospital in Sequim donated their time to spay and neuter 10 of the Aussie-Border Collie WAG rescues from the May 19 rescue in Agnew.
“It is fortunate we were able to get them all done in one day; Dr. Allen and her staff were amazing,” WAG president Barb Brabant said.
Once the dogs were under anesthesia, Dr. Allen was able to evaluate each dog and help with their skin conditions, microchip, cut nails, as well as the surgery, Brabant said. One dog had an infection that if not contained would have probably resulted in death in less than a week, she said.
“We have an amazing community that is willing to do this for us,” Brabant said. “Since we are mostly a volunteer organization, we have to pay these expenses out of our budget. This was truly a generous gift of both time and money and shows the spirit of the community coming together.”
