Adoption Thursdays are a special day here at NomNomNow. We believe all dogs deserve to live healthier, happier, and longer lives, and there are many ways to achieve every part of that mission. We do so through healthier dog food. Our partner, Saving Great Animals, does so by rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming dogs in need. In fact, through the help of volunteers alone, they’ve re-homed 6,000 dogs to date. Not a small feat!
We’re honored to turn our shelter spotlight on Saving Great Animals, and highlight the meaningful work they do. Read on for more information on their programs, how to support them, and especially– available dogs for adoption!
Saving Great Animals
How to Get Involved
Saving Great Animals is run entirely by volunteers (from fosters to directors, and everything in between), and relies heavily on donations of all kinds. Here are a few ways to lend your hand to their cause!
- Foster a pet awaiting adoption: All of their rescued animals are taken in by fosters while SGA looks for their forever home,so they don’t have to live in a kennel. You could be one of these fosters! Read about their program, and apply here.
- Volunteer your time: From transporting pets to helping at adoption events, to even evaluating future adoptive homes, donations of time are crucial to the operation of SGA. Email [email protected] to get involved!
- Donate the old fashioned way: At the end of the day, the surgeries needed to rehabilitate many of these dogs can get costly quickly. Saving Great Animals spent $220,000 on vet bills last year. If you’d like to make a donate to their cause, keep in mind that even a little bit counts. Visit their donation page, and you can see exactly what your donation will go to.
Dogs Available for Adoption
Pit Bull Terrier / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat)
Female (spayed) : : Adult : : Medium
Meet Ginger! Ginger is an adorable 6 year old pit bull mix. She is an active girl who enjoys being close to her human pack. She is very affectionate and loving. Ginger is good with other dogs after a proper introduction and will do best with dogs that are more calm and submissive. She is good with children of all ages, but because she is a little mouthy sometimes, we prefer to see her with older children (10 and up). Ginger knows basic commands like sit, down, roll over and shake. She just adores people and wants to be near them all the time. She is an excellent companion. Ginger needs a good dose of exercise every day and will enjoy going for long walks with you or playing in the yard. She loves playing with her rope toy. Ginger is spayed, vaccinated and chipped. Her adoption fee is $395.
Learn more about Ginger and arrange to meet her here.
Wire-haired Pointing Griffon / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat)
Male (neutered) : : Adult : : Medium
Meet Ares! Ares is a gorgeous boy!
He is a medium sized dog, about 55 lbs. and a stunning mix of what we believe is wire-haired pointing griffon and terrier. He has a beautiful white and golden wirey coat.
Ares is 5 but acts like a puppy! He has a happy face with a friendly personality to match. He likes other dogs, too.
He loves to go for walks, runs, hikes and cuddle. He does need training and is very smart so will want to please you. Taking him to obedience class will be a great learning and bonding for both of you. He certainly deserves to have the tools to be perfect pooch pal.
Ares is now neutered, vaccinated and chipped. His adoption fee is $395.
Learn more about Ares and plan to meet him here!
Pomeranian (long coat)
Male : : Adult : : Small
Meet Archie! Archie was rescued from a hoarding situation where he lived with 40 other dogs on a property without running water. He has not has much love or kindness in his life. He is in a foster home now and seems to be enjoying all the loving and cuddles he is getting. He is a bit nervous still and needs to learn to walk on a leash. He can be a little handshy, but he is warming up more each day. Once you are petting him, he will thoroughly relax and fall asleep in your arms. Archie is a gentle little boy who will do best in a quiet home without children. He is fine with children but since he is a little nervous still, they may cause a little more chaos in the home than Archie is ready for. We think Archie will love living with a quiet couple, if possible with another dog. He is just a darling boy and with a little more time he will continue to come out of his shell.
Archie will be chipped, vaccinated and neutered prior to adoption. His adoption fee is $395.

Jindo (Korean) / Mixed (medium coat)
Female (not spayed) : : Baby : : Medium
Meet Bonnie! This adorable pup was found abandoned in South Korea, together with her best friend Connor, also listed. Due to the South Korean dog meat trade, they are not able to find homes locally. We are happy to be able to help them find homes in Seattle.
Bonnie is a stunning little girl. We’re not sure what her breed mix is, she is rather small now and will likely only grow to about 20 lbs when fully grown. She will be medium in size.
Bonnie has been fostered in South Korea for a short while and she has done wonderfully. She is great with children and other dogs. She is a little shy and bonded with Connor, so we would prefer to see her in a home with another dog, to help build her confidence. She has not been around cats before but given her young age, she can learn. She is a puppy so cannot be left alone for more than a few hours at a time at this young age. She will do best in a home with a yard or with an active family who will give her the exercise he needs.
Bonnie will be spayed, vaccinated and chipped prior to adoption. Her adoption fee is $495.

Shepherd / Chow Chow / Mixed (medium coat)
Male (neutered) : : Adult : : Large
Bear is a lovely 5 year old Shepherd/Chow mix. He has been living in a cage on a property for some time now, without getting the care and attention that he needs. Bear is a good boy who seeks out attention from any human he meets. He is good with other dogs. Bear has not been tested with cats or kids so for now we prefer a no-cat home with kids over 12 only. He is not suitable for apartment living.
Bear will be joining us soon and will be placed in a foster home upon arrival, where we will learn more about his personality and likes and dislikes. Once we have had some time to assess her, he will be available for adoption. We will have better pictures available at that time as well.
He will be vaccinated, neutered and chipped. His adoption fee is $395.
