A Better-Quality Thrift & Gift Shop Operated by:
Shelter Animal Resource
Thanks to your support we have rescued 960 dogs and 778 cats from being killed/euthanized at local animal control shelters.
We have also assisted other rescue groups by sponsoring the spay/neuter of 139 cats and 23 dogs for low income families, which we estimate will save the lives of at least 1390 shelter cats and 368 shelter dogs.
Dog Rescue Program
If you are interested in this challenging position, contact Melinda at 541-607-8892 for more info.
We meet and spend time with each dog, to determine how we can best assist him or her to find a new home:
If the dog is
fairly young, friendly and healthy, he or she may be eligible for
transfer to the Oregon Humane Society (OHS) in
2) Rescue Groups
Dogs that are very shy or frightened; are 9 or more years old, are physically challenged; or are a pit bull, rottweiler or mastiff mix; are not usually eligible for Oregon Humane Society’s adoption program. In these cases, we work with a wide variety of other rescue groups and humane societies to try to find a safe place for the dog to go while a new home is sought for him or her.
3) S.A.R.A.’s Foster/Adoption Program
When dogs don’t qualify for the above programs, and a kind person in the community is willing to open his or her home to a foster dog, S.A.R.A. will take the dog into our own foster program, have him or her spayed/neutered, vaccinated and treated for any medical issues. We will then find a new, loving home for the dog through Petfinder.com, newspaper ads, posters and any other means possible.

A loving home was found for him by the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue group in Washington state. Amber & Eric have taught Rusty sign language, and he enjoys playing with his new sister, Sheila, who is also a Cattle Dog mix.
