What We Do

Uniting People to Help Animals

Please note, we are not a shelter or a placement service.  If you need help adopting, placing or finding a pet, please consult your local shelter or rescue.  Or, to find a pet look at Petfinder.com a listing service that many rescues use.  

Dugan Foundation works with existing shelters, rescues, and non-profit animal welfare organizations to improve the conditions for homeless pets, as well as to build no-kill communities. 

We believe with groups and individuals working together, we have the horsepower in Washington State, to create a no-kill future. 

We are currently focusing on learning more about who is doing what in our state, to help the plight of animals.  We are building a database of organizations and services, with the goal to build collaborative projects, uniting folks of like mind and vision to work together to achieve goals for reducing the killing of animals for population control.   

Dugan Foundation believes there is no reason to kill a companion animal for population control. We do, therefore, everything in our power to assist existing non-profit organizations to shelter, adopt and care for the homeless companion animals.  We also work to ensure all of our programs have an educational component to allow people to learn what it takes to make a no-kill community. 

We also work in three popular programs that many know us for: 

Woofstock – Animal Adoption & Music Festival – a large scale adoption event through the cooperative efforts of dozens of rescues and shelters in the state

Fur Ball Speakeasy – a bi-annual speakeasy themed fundraising event generating grant funds to fuel our work Washington.

Happy Howlidays – a food and supplies collection drive for selected animal welfare groups in Washington State. 

We also attend many animal related events, educating the public about our mission and efforts.  See our event calendar to find out where we will be next.
