Dog Rescue

CHEW sets out to rescue abandoned dogs, dogs slated for euthanasia due to shelter space limitations, and other dogs in need. We are currently working to find additional foster homes and acquire funding for veterinary care and other essential dog services. We host adoption outreach events at Sophie's Touch from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month, at Mud Bay from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on the second Friday and Saturday of each month and Petco from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. on the fourth Friday of each month. All adoption events are located in Gig Harbor at this time.

Reva (on hold until completion of allergy treatment)

Golden Retriever mix (we think)

Adoption Fee: $250

Reva is a Golden Retriever mix girl (we think), weighing about 50lbs. She goes to work with her foster mom at a doggy daycare and does great with the dogs there. She’s good with cats and puppies too as long as they give her space. And she’s good with older respectful kids. She’s potty trained and is safe being left alone loose in the house. Reva loves to cuddle and is happy doing whatever you are doing; she likes car rides, hiking, going the beach, etc. She needs a person or family that, in a firm but kind manner, makes sure she learns what behavior they want. She is a very sweet girl with a huge heart; she will make someone very happy. Reva does have some skin allergies that are likely food-related. We are working to learn what she is allergic to so her new family will know what foods she can have and what to avoid. Reva needs a home with a fenced yard (not an invisible fence).

Chihuahua/minpin mix

Adoption Fee: 300

Meet Penny. She's a sweet cuddler, active player, and just a delightful little girl. She is a 10 pound, 3-year-old chihuahua with lots of love to give. She is affectionate, and wants to be nearby. As an added bonus, she doesn't shed a bit. In her free time, she enjoys shaking her toys silly, gnawing on bully sticks, protecting her home from the mailman, and showering her humans with love. She is medium-energy, so enjoys both snoozing AND hopping around town. Penny would do best in a home without very young children and would love to have a fenced yard to freely run around in. Meet her soon!

Dapple Dachshund

Adoption Fee: $400

Boo is a very sweet 5 year old uniquely colored Dachshund boy. He is a very gentle soul and listens attentively to your every word you say. He loves to follow his human around the house or yard and has a wonderful time going for walks and riding in the car. He’s happy that his foster mom has a car seat designed for the doggies so he can see out the window. Boo seldom barks. He would like nothing better than to cuddle with you all day. His favorite part of his day is when his his foster mom gets ready to go to bed…he jumps up on her bed and often is found under the blankies.. Boo absolutely LOVES his toys!! When he gets up in the morning he finds a toy to accompany him when he goes outside to go potty. He will take a toy and run through the house, ears flying and tail wagging! You can't help but smile at his wonderful antics. Boo waits for permission to get on the couch but if you don't ask him soon he will gently give you a little bark until you finally tell him it is ok. Unlike many doxies he doesn’t have their typical stubborn characteristics…he is nothing like that. He is a sweet, sweet boy. We think Boo will do best in a home without very young children…older respectful children would be just fine.

Beagle (maybe mix)

Adoption Fee: $250

Latte is a 9 year old female Beagle. She is an absolute sweetheart and gets along with everyone (adults, children, dogs and cats). Latte is not a high energy dog, but enjoys a nice walk or romp in the yard. She loves to follow her person around the house or yard and sleeps in a dog bed near your bed. She is reliable when left free in the house and working on learning how to ride in the car safely (getting her "car legs"). She would do best in a home with a fenced yard and where she doesn't have to be left alone for a 40 hour work week; and we think she would like the company of another dog.

Charlie

6 years

Yorkie/silky terrier mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Charlie is a very affectionate, funny little 6 year old guy who really enjoys playing tug, and snuggling up in your lap , he wants nothing more than to have a companion to spend his days and nights with. He will alert you to any guest arrival at your home and has plenty of excitement to go around when meeting new people and dogs. He’s much better with new people if they allow him to come to them rather than being chased down to be held. And he enjoys respectful children since that means extra pets and loves. Charlie is crate trained, but is not at all destructive when left alone in the house. He needs regular potty breaks as he is a small guy and can’t hold it forever. He likes to cuddle up on the bed with his family and will sleep through the night. He’s good with cats, likes to be brushed and doesn't even mind baths and haircuts—which is so helpful since he requires regular grooming. He needs a fenced yard and to be held when guests arrive as his excitement gets the best of him and he may run out the door. Charlie will make a wonderful best friend to someone….is that you?
