In order to better help you find your new friend, we’ve introduced a new icon to show when a pet is : look for the clock symbol on pet profiles near their photos. Don’t let this deter you—we have many more animals available for adoption, as you can see below. The pets shown here have been adopted from the Oregon Humane Society over the past few days.

Thank you for clicking on our Petfinder page. Please make sure to take the time to read the information we have supplied here as it will have all the information we have available, and all the instructions on how to adopt this beautiful dog!
1st, we are a 3 person Non Profit 501C3 Dog Rescue. Our main goal is to save dogs that would otherwise be euthanized due to not enough people population in the area they live in to adopt them - this is important for you to understand because the dogs that come from these areas are either stray or have lived their entire lives in the shelter in a 4X5 concrete dog run. They are going to have issues that you will need to work on. They will not come with a pedigree, we will give you our guess on the dominant breed of the dog but if you want more information regarding heritage you will have to DNA test the dog. DNA kits are $69. We have no cats or children in our rescue or on our premises.
We are seeking homes with children over the age of 8 years that will commit to training even if it means taking the dog to a professional outside the home.
There is a donation for these cuties, this donation is made to the medical part of the rescue - for example the shots, wormings, spay/neuter, etc......we do not sell dogs - you are not buying a dog. There are no fees for the dog. All medical donations to the 501C3 Non Profit Dog Rescue go to help ALL the dogs in the rescue not just the one your adopting. Our donations are the same as all of the other rescues and the Oregon Humane Society -
As you can see from our Petfinder page we have lots and lots of doggies. So we are only available in person at our adoption events. We very much appreciate you respecting our limits and not emailing to ask if you can see a dog sooner. All dogs/puppies posted are available until their picture is removed from the site, so there is no need to email asking if the dog/puppy is available.
All Dogs/puppies have had at least one vet check and are current on age appropriate shots. NOT ALL dogs/puppies are spayed or neutered yet as we take in more dogs than our vet is able to fix in one week. If the pet your interested in is not fixed already you will be able to foster the dog until it is done or if you live to far away you can still adopt the dog but pick it up at the vet the day its altered. The rescue will explain this in more detail when they see you in person. If you want to see the dog your looking at you need to email the picture of the dog so the rescue knows what dog your referring to.
So if your ready to find your new best friend here is where and when to go:
Next adoption event is Thursday 4 to 7 pm. Then Saturday 11 to 5pm at the Petsmart located at 7501 SW Dartmouth Street, Tigard OR 97223 Jane (top) and Elizabeth (bottom) are two distinguished beauties who are about 1 and 1/2 years old. They are sisters who’ve spent their whole lives together, and recently both had their last litters of kittens. Now they’re spayed and all ready to find their new family! They are extremely sweet and social young ladies who’ve become pretty bonded. They like to sleep together and play together — and occasionally attend fancy dinner parties where they can show off their class and court potential suiters! Of course, Elizabeth is a little bit more independent and likes to adventure and play before settling down. Jane is a little more reserved but definitely snuggly — she is waiting for the love of her life to come whisk them away to their happily ever after. Are you looking for a pair of adorable young ladies to complete your love story? Come meet them at Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd & Burnside! They come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a combined adoption fee of $180.
