Kirby is a cute little guy with a bit of an attitude about strangers. He is getting better every day but it takes time for him to trust a new person. During that time he might snap or try to bite if pushed too far. He does love his foster mom and his groomer so we know there is hope for him to find a new family. He is undergoing some "attitude adjustment" training too. His thing is to ride in the car! He wouldn't care if Jack the Ripper was driving, he would go and love every minute of it. Like Gunther, a big help in the yard. He waits patiently for a weed to be pulled and tossed into a pile. Then he attacks it and takes it somewhere (to his weed stash, of course).

People interested in adopting a dog from SD should send a note which includes information about home, family, yard, fence, other pets, work situation, and a vet reference. Notes like "How much is this dog?," "Is this dog available?," "I'm interested in this dog" will not be answered. We are serious about our placements and hope you are too. Adoption fee is $100, trial period available.

About Salem Dogs

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. This often means that financial considerations are important.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoptable pets can be seen at FaceBook/Adoptable Dogs in Salem, OR. 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 no application form to fill out. Phone interviews will start the process. If the interview is promising for a match, 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 $150 or whatever we have spent on vet bills (always provided).
