“Dogs are miracles with paws.”
That quote, attributed to the best-selling author and artist Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy, accurately describes the feelings of the founders and volunteers of and contributors to PURPLE HEART RESCUE. We love all creatures, of course, but dogs hold a special place in our hearts, and our organization was established to make placement of abandoned, abused, neglected, aging and otherwise homeless canines a top priority in Washington state.
We are a 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 2013 by Debbie Harp and Sandy Winberry, who call an expansive farm in Washington State home. That home is shared with dozens of dogs and cats who have been rescued and are in need of foster homes and eventually a fur-ever home.
