Who We Are
Bravepup is a Seattle-based nonprofit on a mission to improve health and well-being through positive, human-animal interaction.
What We Do
We rescue puppies and moms from overcrowded, high kill shelters in the Southern US. Puppies get a second chance at life and hop on a Bravepup Freedom Flight to Seattle, where we find wonderful homes and they become well socialized PNW pups. While in foster care, we deliver puppies to local offices and businesses to raise funds and help rescue more puppies in need.
Puppy deliveries provide positive socialization and exposure for rescue puppies during their first few months, a crucial time in their development. In return, we provide a fun and innovative way to boost morale, relieve stress, and bring smiles to employees during their busy work week.
Why the South
In Seattle, common spay and neuter practices lead to a shortage of rescue puppies in our shelters. Unfortunately, this also means people find it difficult to adopt a rescue puppy and end-up supporting other less humane sources of dogs. In the meantime, overbreeding in the South leads to overcrowded shelters regularly euthanizing entire litters of unwanted and abandoned puppies.
