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.

Please click on the dog's picture to learn more about them.

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
1-2 years
Lab mix

Bailey

1-2 years

Lab mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Bailey is a 1-2 yr old black Labrador mix. He apparently injured his left hip and that affects how much and what kind of exercise he can have without ending up in pain. But he'll be a great companion and walking partner. Meet him and you will fall in love with him. 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

Italian Greyhound mix

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.

German Shepherd/Husky Mix

Baxter - Adoption Pending

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'.

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 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.
