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.

She loves going for walks with her foster family and all the attention she receives. She gets along with dogs and cats alike. Sugar has elevated liver enzymes and therefore has to be fed special food from the vet to give her liver support. She is very lively and certainly doesn't know she is 'special'! She acts perfectly healthy, lively and very playful with her foster brothers and sisters.
Bailey

Lab mix

Bailey

1-2 years

Lab mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Bailey is a 1-2 yr old black Labrador mix. His foster mom has had a lot of fun watching him discover a whole new world. He's no longer afraid of his new surroundings. When he joined us a little over 2 weeks ago, he was terrified by the creek and anything that blew in the wind. Now he's ready for any adventure that's throw his way. He's house trained, gets along well with other dogs, is a good passenger in the van and has free reign of the house. Look into those eyes of his and you'll know sweetness. Bailey is a very special boy. And Bailey needs a fenced yard (not invisible fence).
Topol
1 year
Chihuahua

Topol

1 year

Chihuahua

Adoption Fee: 300

Topol is a one year old bundle of joy who loves to play with toys as much as he loves to snuggle with his people. He prefers to sleep in his crate at night and has been very good about potty training. Topol shares his foster family with another dog and seems fine around other dogs. Because of his size, he needs a home with either no children or older children.
Baxter
Young - about 1 year
German Shepherd/Husky Mix

Baxter

Young - about 1 year

German Shepherd/Husky Mix

Adoption Fee: $250

This beautiful boy is Baxter, a white German Shepherd/Husky mix. He is an energetic puppy at just over a year old, in an adult body. He is currently working on basic commands which include walking on a leash and socialization. He has proven to be a quick learner and really has a desire to please. He has decided treats are wonderful! Baxter loves car rides and plays well with big and small dogs... though he likes to chase cats if they run from him. Baxter would do best with a tall, fenced yard and a companion dog to play with. An owner that is firm but kind and includes him in their daily lives would be desired, as well as a household with children (if any) above the age of 12. He would be good at herding, agility or scent work as Shepherds always need a 'job'.
