Who We Are


"3 Dog Rescue" is a registered non-profit, all volunteer organization established in Cody, WY to help you find a new companion or working dog to suit your lifestyle. Many responsible owners are faced with having to give up their much loved pets for various reasons. Networking with veterinarians, shelters, and other rescue organizations enables us to find appropriate new homes to suit each dog's specific needs. Our goal is to transition each dog into a new environment with as little stress as possible. Most owners want to be assured that their dogs find a great new home and "3 Dog Rescue" was established to assist with this effort. The dogs we place must be spayed/neutered and current on their vaccinations. Our adoption fees vary from $150-$500 for each dog depending upon breed, necessary medical expenses, age, and/or other circumstances. We also provide collars, leashes, food, medications, toys, bedding and crates if needed. "3 Dog Rescue" operates through donations and adoption fees to cover these expenses. All our rescues receive full veterinary examinations and some require dental work, blood work, and additional vet services. We are a registered non-profit organization in the State of Wyoming and our EIN# is 80-0789361.

Some breeds are more difficult to rehome than others, but we strive to place within several weeks of our postings. We initially post pictures and a bio of each dog and have a distribution list of over 300 recipients from Montana, through all of Wyoming and down into Colorado. We network with other rescue organizations and do transport and home checks for other groups, so if you are seeking a specific breed, we may be able to help. We are also on Facebook, which you know reaches an even wider range of people, but we refer every to our Petfinder page as we are able to provide information in greater detail.

Not all dogs that come into rescue are house pets, therefore our criteria for adoption and our Adoption Agreements may vary. Some are house trained and crate trained, while others may be farm/ranch, hunting, guarding, herding or working breeds that prefer the outdoors. The majority of our dogs however are companion dogs and all applicants must be able to provide indoor shelter year-round. We do NOT allow chaining and all dogs must have access to a safe (inside) shelter at night. Please be aware of your expectations of each dog before applying for adoption. We want to place the appropriate dog with your needs and strive to find the best possible homes for all our rescues. "Adoption Applications, Adoption Agreements," and "Relinquishment Forms" can be sent to you via email or picked up at local vet clinics in Cody, Powell, Worland, Thermopolis, and Greybull, WY. For more details email Kathy McDonald at kathy@3dogrescue.com or call (307) 587-4794 for more information. Any donations, no matter how small are always greatly appreciated. We have a PayPal account or donations can be mailed to "3 Dog Rescue" c/o Kathy McDonald, 228 Spirit Mountain Dr., Cody, WY 82414-9466
