Just say you believe in fairies, and I shall appear! Hello everyone. My name is Tinkerbell and I am 6 year old chihuahua mix weighing in at 13lbs. Not only am I sweet and utterly adorable, but I am such a fun gal too! I really enjoy my daily walks with volunteers, though I am not a huge fan of all this rain! Despite my independence, I do enjoy the company of my human friends and love to have a cuddle session or two with you on the couch. After that, it’s off for another walk or some play time in the yard. Speaking of play, I wouldn’t mind having another mellow doggy friend around! No kitties in my home please! Since I can be a bit sensitive, I would need to be in an adult only home owned by my adopters. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! It just takes me, you, faith, trust, and a little Pixie dust, and we can live happily ever after today! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Meet little AERO, a 6 year old, long haired black and tan male Dachshund. Little AERO is a sweet, loving and handsome little special needs doxie who is looking for a loving, forever family of his very own. His current human family finds themselves unable to care for his needs, so they have reached out to Oregon Dachshund Rescue, Inc. to help him. You see, little AERO experienced an injury to his back and now gets around with wheels, which he loves to do. AERO cannot stand on his own. He needs assistance expressing his bladder and bowels. According to his current family, AERO is car trained, leash trained and friendly with everyone (except cats). He doesn’t like cats and barks at other animals (even on TV), but enjoys all people and LOVES going for walks. 

With this in mind, AERO will likely do best in a doxie savvy family with a stay at home parent (retired or work from home) who is able to help care for his special needs and perhaps only older children (over the age of 12), who are sensitive to the special needs of Dachshunds.

Unfortunately, ODR, Inc. is over-full and cannot take this little Doxie in. If you or anyone you know can help, please share this email or contact his current caretaker, Curt at (971) 217-0973 or

Hello! My name is Windsor Charles, but my friends call me Winny or Winny C. or Winny Char Char or Winnypants or sometimes just Windsor. I am a 3 (maybe 4?) year old Chihuahua terrier mix with a quirky personality and a heart of gold. As much as I tried to be an urban jet-setter, I’ve realized life in the big city just isn’t for me. It’s much too busy and cramped for me to plant my roots. I’d really thrive in a more rural environment with room for me to grow and blossom! I’m ready to trade in scary Tri-met busses and loud construction for a nice backyard and maybe some calming crickets.

I’m in search of a nice lady over 40 who loves long walks on the beach and to hike and camp and enjoy nature as much as I do! I need to live in an OWNED home with a fenced yard and space for me to sniff, run and explore. An older sister or brother of the canine variety with the patience to show me the ropes and help me to build my confidence would be a dream come true, but I’m also fine just being an only dog. I really don’t care for puppies though, and kids make me nervous. Those bouncy little things are unpredictable! Men are pretty scary to me due to past trauma, but if they are willing to take the time and get on my level to gain my trust I will be cuddling up in no time.

Because of my rough beginnings I can be a pretty nervous guy. I’ll need to be in a calm environment with a big hearted person who is patient and willing to diligently work with me to overcome my anxiety triggers. I’m thinking this big ol’ world might not be so scary after all! I’ve conquered some of my most major fears already, so I know in the right environment, with the right person(s) I’ll continue to build confidence. Are you my person? If interested, please contact Amy at

My name is Callie and I am a beautiful and mellow 7-year-old tortoiseshell lady with the most lovey-dovey personality! Do you like to lounge around like a couch potato? I think we’d get along purrfectly — all I want is to be held and brushed all day long. I will purr and drool any time people stop by to give me pets and scratches, and I also just love hugs. I could sit in your lap forever! I was in a foster for a couple months where my personality really came out and even though I am pretty easy-going, I still have a lot of play in me and will even play all by myself when there’s no one around! I’m pretty indifferent to other animals and could probably live with another mellow cat or dog, but would be just fine as an only cat as well. Are you in need of a lovely lap-warmer? I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and with a recent dental for an adoption fee of $100.

Hi, everyone! My name is Nelson and I am a cute and fun 1-year-old Chi/Terrier mix weighing around 12lbs.  on the younger side, I am quite spunky and have a puppy like charm that will steal your heart! I am full of bounces and play whether it is with my puppy pals, my kitty friends, or my human friends over 6. Though I can be a tad shy at first, I instantly open up with a few treats or one of my favorite squeaky toys. Still working on that fetch, but I am a quick learner and highly trainable as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! This will also help with me getting used to the hustle and bustle of the big city, which can be a bit scary sometimes. And after a little practice, I will really enjoy walking around the neighborhood with you on our daily walks! After a long day of playing and activity, I am ready to hop in your lap and cuddle the night away while we catch up on some of our favorite TV shows. My favorite is Bones-ha! Get it? I am such a hoot! And there is plenty more hilarious puppy antics that await, so fill out an application today and I can show you! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hola! My name is Rico Suave and I am the most handsome Shih Tzu/Cavalier mix around these parts! I am about 3 years old and weigh around 25lbs.  I am a very affectionate and playful guy who loves to be loved! I have a wonderful energy of being active enough to play with my toys and do long walks around the neighborhood, but also knows when it is time to settle in and cuddle for the night. I do not mind having another chill dog around, but I like to bark at those kitties, so none in my home please. Since I do have the tendency to sing, I would need to be in an owned home with someone who doesn’t have extra long work days. I am just so eager to bond to my human friends over 12. I can’t get enough of the attention! I am Rico Suave, you know. Ha! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Need to add a little sweetness to your day? Then just add a little tablespoon of me-Honey! I am a 7 year old Black Lab/Rhodesian mix with a big heart. I am a mellow gal who can still be active and go on daily walks, but also really wants nothing more than to be by your side and relax the night away! After a little time with me, you can instantly tell I am a pup that is eager to bond with that special someone. I am still getting used to the bigger city, so a quieter home with kids over 10 in a low traffic area would best! I don’t mind being with other calm dogs like myself, but dog parks would be too overwhelming. No cats in my home please! Overall, I am an affectionate lovebug who likes being around my people, and just taking the days as they come. Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Teddy is at 15 year old medium hair cat. She is quiet and affectionate (the only cat I have met who NEVER tires of being petted), purrs readily, has comical quirks, loves to fetch a toy when we hide it for her, and is a wonderful lap kitty/companion. We never had another animal, but understand from Seattle Humane Society (from whom we adopted her in 2010) that she does better in a 1-cat adult home. She is healthy and proper weight for length (10 lb). She takes meds (felimazole) for hyperthyroidism. This is very easy if you crush the pill and mix it with a little Friskies pate and hot water. She thinks it is freshly killed mouse and begs for it. She has had occasional out of litter box incidents, and coughs up a hairball every week or so — mostly she behaves pretty well (if one can speak of behavior with regard to a cat!). We cannot keep her because my wife is finding it increasingly difficult to care for her when I am away, due to my wife’s disabilities.

Please email John at if you are interested in meeting her!
