Pet Lodge Adoptions is a non-profit, no-kill rescue organization. Headed by a vet tech who has been doing animal rescue for 16 years, Pet Lodge is on 14 acres with several large fenced yards. Adoptions are screened by phone and then by a home visit. All dogs are spayed/neutered before going out. Contracts state that the animal MUST be brought back to Pet Lodge if, at any time in the future the adopter can no longer keep an animal, regardless of the length of time that has elapsed. Adoption fees are "open." Pet Lodge Adoptions (509)773-6407. E-mail: petlodge@gorge.net
