Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue is a nonpolitical charitable organization founded in 1987. SPDR works cooperatively with Puget Sound area shelters, breed clubs, and individuals to place hundreds of unwanted purebred dogs each year into new homes.

SPDR Mission Statement


Roughly 25% of all dogs found in shelters are purebred. SPDR addresses this need in three ways:


SPDR finds homes for unwanted dogs from private individuals and local area shelters.


SPDR refers adopters to available purebred dogs needing new homes.


SPDR promotes responsible dog ownership by educating the public in the selection, care, and training of dogs.
