Where do you deliver puppies to?
Offices, workplaces and organizations in Seattle.
What happens at puppy visits?
Puppy visits are fun and positive events. Puppies play, socialize, snuggle and show off for a chance to be adopted.
How many puppies do you bring?
The number of puppies depends on availability, but you can expect around 5 pups.
Do you drop puppies off at our office?
Nope! Bravepup volunteers stay to supervise and make sure both puppies and people have a fun and positive experience.
Do you have a floor cover to protect our carpet?
Yes! We bring a floor cover and a puppy playpen to help contain the pups, if needed. We take care of all setup and cleanup if there are any accidents.
Where do the puppies come from?
We rescue and transport puppies from overcrowded kill shelters in the Southern U.S. Most puppies are rescued from Clayton County Animal Control and Monroe County Animal Control, both located in rural Georgia.
What happens when the puppies grow up?
They all get adopted and find loving forever homes before they grow up, usually within weeks of being rescued.
How do I adopt?
Check out our available puppies and fill out an adoption application at bravepup.org/adopt. Please note that adoptions don't happen on-site and are not first-come, first-serve.
What is the socialization window?
The first 16 weeks of a puppy's life, a critical time in his or her development. During this time, puppies are open to new experiences and become comfortable with the world around them. Frequent outings and positive exposure to new environments, people, dogs, surfaces, car rides, loud coffee shops, office environments, elevators, children, bicycles, etc. help puppies enjoy these experiences later in life. After the first 16 weeks, this window closes and a puppy's developing brain is less open to new exposures. Saturation of positive experiences every day is critical and puppies who don't receive positive socialization and exposure during the socialization window may become fearful later in life. Lack of socialization is the number one reason for shelter/rescue returns and the euthanasia of unwanted and abandoned dogs.
