Saving Great Animals is a matchmaking rescue organization focused mainly on dogs in the Greater Seattle area. We work tirelessly to match the best pet to your family based on breed, lifestyle and other factors. With more than 8500 lovingly homed since 2007, we are proud of our dedicated all-volunteer team and foster homes for bringing new life to pets with loving homes to last their lifetime. We adopt out only after a dog has been spayed/neutered, updated on shots, has received proper medical care and chipped.  We are dedicated to lowering the dog reproduction population, which leads to millions of lost lives.

We use a trial adoption program, which includes training and counsel, and dogs are only adopted after that period.  As a result, our return rates are very low. We love every single animal we rescue and we are cradle to grave, staying in touch with adopting families for years, often adding new furry loves to their homes. Adopters must sign a contract, and this is to ensure that if for some unforeseen reason, the dog needs to be rehomed, he/she is returned to Saving Great Animals for rehoming. Our dogs are never to see a high-kill shelter again in their lifetime.

We are solely non-profit, relying on adopt donations, fundraising and grants.  As you can imagine, with mounting vet and kennel costs, we are always in need of financial gifts. Join our active Facebook community at Saving Great Animals, and our growing Instagram and Twitter groups.

SGA is an entirely volunteer based team. We have an amazing group of people helping each and every day to bring animals to safety and to help them find loving homes. The team is supported by a large community of fosters, transporters, dog-walkers, donors and cheerleaders.
