We love what we do! We are Seattle-based but have representatives in all parts of Washington state. SGA is a federal 501(c)3 registered charity and relies solely on donations to do its work. Saving Great Animals has been working tirelessly as a no-kill, foster-based rescue for the last 10 years. In 2007, SGA became an official member of Petfinder and is now working with a wide network of foster homes and numerous shelters around the state to find permanent homes for animals that are deserving of love and a family. Many of the dogs and cats we rescue would otherwise face unnecessary euthanasia. To date we have rescued over 5000 animals .
