Operation Dog

Operation Dog Rescue (ODR), led by Vivian Dahlin,  specializes in the capture of “at-large,” lost, missing, abandoned dogs – dogs who are living on their own and going out of their way to avoid human contact.  This may be a lost dog with an owner, or a dog with no owner that is loose in a specific area.  ODR has a track record of successful dog captures that allows us to offer informed suggestions to owners [or a designated contact person], and implement well tested trapping methods that frequently result in the capture of even the most elusive dogs.  For more information contact Vivian at or 360. 580. 9927.  Or visit

Save Washington Pets

During the next legislative session, a bill will be introduced that will help pay for spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats owned by low-income individuals, and spay/neuter surgeries for feral and free roaming cats. We need affordable and accessible spay/neuter surgery throughout Washington to help end the euthanasia of tens of thousands of dogs and cats in our shelters each year – animals that are healthy or treatable and just don’t have a home. Please visit Save Washington Pets to learn more about the bill and ways to get involved.
