Pets with a Promise


When it seems like nothing else is going right, our pets provide us with a listening ear, unconditional love, and a fuzzy belly to rub. Kids learn important life lessons and gain best friends when there is a pet in their home. So imagine having to make the heart-wrenching decision to give up your four-legged family member in order to secure shelter for your kids.

Luckily for our families, they no longer have to choose. Whether it is a dog, cat, tarantula, or guinea pig, their pet also has a safe, warm place where their family can maintain that special bond. With its cheerful yellow walls and specially painted dog run, the pet shelter is a unique benefit not offered by any other family shelter in Oregon. Dogs love having their own personal fire hydrant in the fenced run, and our guests can breathe easy knowing their best friend is right there, whenever they need a furry hug.

Pets are not just a compassionate afterthought. We strive to ensure families have what they need by networking with veterinarians and pet supply stores for discounts and donations. We have helped to supply everything from food to vet visits, flea treatment to leashes, litter to a little extra love. This helps families stay on track to their ultimate goal - getting back into their own home.
