Support Dog Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder or pet store to buy a dog when you can adopt?
Our Featured Salem, OR Partner:
Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life!
Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
All cities and towns in Marion, Polk, Linn Counties in Oregon. Also, we have adopted out dogs to people much further way (Canada, etc.) using a local group for home visit.
Salem Dogs has a focus on "special needs" dogs. These can be seniors, overweight dogs, or dogs recovering from medical issues.
Come Meet our Pets:
Adoptable pets can be seen at the Adopt a dog page on our web site, www.salemdogs.org. Also, we have pictures and bios of them on other adoption web sites and often in the local newspaper. We make flyers and send them to the local vets and groomers. We seldom do an outreach with our pets.
Our Adoption Process:
There is an application form to fill out. If the application form is acceptable, we arrange for a meet/greet in neutral territory. If all is well, we have an adoption contract to be completed at that time. Adoption fees are either $100 or whatever we have spent on vet bills (always provided).
