- Stray animals should be taken to your local county animal control agency, as that is where owners will look first. Find the animal control agency closest to you by either looking in the phone book, checking our on-line list of agencies, or visiting www.nwdogrescue.com. The Oregon Humane Society does not accept incoming stray dogs. If you find a stray dog, it must be taken to your county animal control facility.
- You can bring stray cats to the Oregon Humane Society. Please call
(503) 285-7722 ext. 211
to schedule a time to drop off the stray cat. OHS will hold stray cats for 3 days and post a photo and description on its stray cat Web page before placing the cat up for adoption.
- Here is what you need to know about bringing an animal to OHS: Call (503) 285-7722, ext. 211, to make an appointment. At that time you may also receive information on the other shelters that may be able to assist as well. We will do our best to accommodate your schedule and the urgency in getting the lost/stray pet to a shelter to be reunited with his/her owner.
- OHS requests a donation for leaving an animal with OHS of $45 to $100.
- Occasionally, we will accept animals from shelters across the state, as well as dogs from a county animal control agency, if we have room in our kennels as part of our Second Chance Program. This program makes sure that every adoptable animal finds a good, permanent, loving home. This program helps save lives by finding homes for pets across the state.
