Daria 1

Aloha!  My name is Daria and I’m a darling 3 year old Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix fresh off the island of Maui. I know, I know, people think it’s a tropical paradise and why would I ever want to leave the warm wind and sandy beaches?  Well it’s simple, my perfect family isn’t on that island!  I know I’m going to find them right here in Portland. So far it’s a beautiful place, I didn’t know leaves had so many colors! I’m really looking forward to spending time with my new folks going on walks and visiting all the different coffee shops. I’m hoping to have a canine buddy to pal around with too, you know, to show me the ropes from a doggy perspective. I can get a little nervous on my own, so a canine sibling would be the best!  I am great with all people and with my spunky personality all people think I’m great too!  So what do you say?  Want to show this Hawaiian what it’s like to be a Pacific North Westerner?  Fill out an application at so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.

Hi Everyone!

Due to the icy road conditions we are hunkering down and closing our doors for the day. Don’t worry, the animals are in the  fabulous hands of our Animal Care Supervisor and will be toasty and warm all day.  We will be back tomorrow from 11-6. Thank you for your understanding!

Clementine and Aimee 1

See that pretty girl in the picture? No, silly, the one with the floppy ears! It’s me! Clementine, 3 years old, 75 lbs, Pit Bull. Most people call me a lover. Lover of everything and everyone really! I love to play with toys, love to eat snacks and I love a good friend by my side.  This time of year is one of my favorites because it’s perfect for snuggling by the fire and sharing a blankie. Us pitties have real short fur and need extra cuddles to stay warm!   I’d do great in a family environment or a single home, with other animals or as an only pooch, as long as it’s my forever home I’ll be happy! Does your fireplace have room for one more in front? Fill out an application at so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I’m spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped. adoption fee $250. XOXO

Hi! I’m Max! I am a 7.5 year old darling Puggle. I am crate trained, 100% house-broken, good with other dogs and I get along with adults and kids alike! I sit and shake upon command, and also love playing tug-o-war and fetch. My foster folks say I am a most excellent lap dog and I love leash walks where I can frolic in the leaves and fresh air. I’d love to meet you!  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250. Please fill out an application at or contact us for more information!
