Dog Adoption

Dogs Available for Adoption

The Shelter has expanded their OPEN HOUSE to hours!  Now, you don’t need an appointment on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from noon-4pm.

Appointments are not required during these hours, but to help control the number of people in the kennels, visitors are asked to check-in at the Front Office upon arrival. 

Appointments are only needed for cats and dogs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. 

View the many adoptable animals using the links below.  Then stop in Friday – Sunday from noon to 4pm.  Or if you can’t make it on one of the Open House days we offer appointments Tuesday – Thursday.  An adoption counselor can help you find just the right pet while at the Shelter! 

View the DOGS here.

If you’ll be coming to the Shelter Tuesday – Thursday please call (541) 774-6654 and select Option 7 to be connected with a Shelter staff person to set up your appointment.
