Meet Sasha!

This beautiful Husky girl in search of her FURever home.

Sasha was born in October 2020. She came into the rescue when she turned out to be to much to handle for the lady that bought her from a breeder.

This sweet girl LOVES children. She is energetic and playful. The perfect home for her would be an active family with a fenced in yard and no other dogs. She does like to play with other dogs but does not like to share her humans affection with other animals.

Cats are a big no as she is a Husky and has a high prey drive.

The fur baby that we are currently fundraising for is Foxy Roxy. She is a sweet and loving girl that was recently diagnosed as heartworm positive. Little miss Foxy Roxy has started her treatment. Please help in supporting this beautiful girl by donating to our PayPal.

Cindy Faltemier, Washington, hasn’t met a dog in need that she didn’t think was worth rescuing. She has taken in dogs that many people thought were too old and others that people thought were too sick to bother with saving.


She finds homes for them all, or keeps them until she can.


Five years ago Faltemier set up Dog Saver, a no-kill dog shelter on the 8 acre property she and her husband, Doug, own off Highway AJ. But Faltemier admits she has been rescuing dogs for many more years than that.


The first were neighbor dogs that showed up at her door often hungry, but occasionally hurt. One that she calls Brown Dog started coming around in 2002.


“He would come over, hang out, eat and leave, go back home,” said Faltemier.
