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.

About Our Rescue Group:

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).

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
