CHEW Dog Rescue

CHEW is now able to start meet & greets for our adoptable dogs that have been sheltering in place with their foster families through the COVID-19 outbreak. Animal transports from other states are still halted due to travel restrictions. Do continue to follow us on Facebook, as we will be posting photos and updates on our dogs.

Our hope for you, your families, friends and pets is to stay healthy and safe. Thank you for your support and understanding.

MojoIn memory of their beloved dog Mojo and the happiness he tried so hard to spread to everyone he met, Mojo’s owners have offered to match, dollar for dollar, all donations made to CHEW for a 60-day period ending November 15th (up to a maximum of $10,000). We are so thankful for this offer…please help us honor it by donating today.

CHEW Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned dogs, dogs scheduled for euthanasia due to shelter space limitations, and other dogs who need us. We are always looking to find additional foster homes and acquire funding for veterinary care and other essential elements of dog rescue to allow us to help more dogs in need. CHEW (Canine Health Education and Welfare) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.

Organized in 2006 to advocate for a fenced off-leash dog park in the Gig Harbor area, we now dedicate our time to rescuing dogs in need. We also promote responsible dog ownership including canine health and behavioral topics. Feel free to download CPR for Dogs and a Pet Disaster Checklist.

Since the start of CHEW as a rescue organization, we have rescued and saved 957 dogs in 7 years. Check our Adoption page to see all of our available dogs and for an application to adopt.
