Bangtail Dog Rescue

Bangtaillogo15Bangtail Dog Rescue, named for the mountain range in Montana where we first incorporated, has been finding great homes for great dogs since 2000.

After moving in 2014, we have now incorporated our 501(c)(3) non-profit in Washington State.  The rescue will be run out of the Country Inn Pet Resort in McCleary.

Bangtail Dog Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping find good homes for dogs in need.  We work with all breeds of dogs but our specialty is deaf dogs – especially herding breeds.  Deaf dogs make excellent pets in the right homes.  They’re not too different from hearing dogs, you just use hand signals in training.  There are many deaf dogs that compete in agility and obedience trials…some even do search and rescue work! Bangtail Dog Rescue strives to find the right dog for the right family.  Jackie Loeser, founder of Bangtail Dog Rescue, is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and is available to answer any questions and help new owners with any training issues that may arise with a new pet.  Our goal is to keep the dog in the new home for life!


pepperPepper/Joey came to us from Idaho where his owner was forced to give him up after needing to move.  He’s a 5 year old Border Collie cross. He is not happy here at the kennel and really needs a home of his own. He is housebroken and likes other dogs. Pepper is still wondering where his owner is and really needs a person to love. Fostering to adopt is an option for him, too. We would like to get him out of the kennel where he can relax a little.  If you are interested in Pepper/Joey start by filling out this form. (Adoption pending 11/23/15)




This is Happy, or Ears, or Cyclone.  cyclone

He recently found a new home with a family in Bend, Oregon!



The week of 5/3 was fantastic as Tux, Kyra and Hank all found great new homes!


 Here’s just a small sample of some other dogs that Bangtail has placed in permanent homes in the past few years:
