CHEW Dog Rescue

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 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. 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 1,032 dogs in 8 years. Check our Adoption page to see all of our available dogs and for an application to adopt.


CHEW has several puppies that we would like to save if we can find fosters soon. Below are two of them, so cute. Could you foster either one?

CHEW Dog Rescue will pay all necessary veterinary fees such as health assessment exams, spay or neuter, microchipping, vaccinations and medications. If needed, CHEW will help with food costs. You must be within one hour of Gig Harbor to be able to access our veterinary partners. Please consider fostering if you possibly can. The need is urgent. Complete a Foster Application or contact us today for more information at 253-265-6235.
