Agave Dogs Rescue was founded in 2017 after seeing constant pleas on social media from shelters and rescuers in Texas and other Southern states for help with their dog overpopulation crisis. Dogs dumped on the side of the road, dogs minutes from euthanasia unless a rescue tagged them, dogs enduring years of hardship and neglect with owners who didn't or couldn't care for them. We knew the Pacific Northwest had an extensive demographic of amazing dog lovers willing to offer homes and their hearts to dogs in need. So we jumped into action and haven't stopped since.
Agave Dogs rescues adoptable, homeless dogs from areas overwhelmed with pet overpopulation and finds them loving, permanent homes in Oregon and Washington. We assist dogs at risk for euthanasia in high kill shelters and strays found on the street by out of state rescuers. If you'd like to meet one of our dogs the first step is to fill out an adoption application so we can get to know you better.
We will close out 2021, our fourth year of rescuing dogs, by saving over 800 dogs total. It takes a dedicated team of volunteers to keep these wheels of rescue rolling! Without foster homes and other volunteers we would not be able to save dogs. We are so grateful to everyone we come across willing to help our mission.
