Senior Dog Rescue of Oregon

An all-volunteer non-profit dedicated to saving wonderful older dogs.

  • all colors, shapes and sizes – just the dog you’re looking for.
  • ages 6 and up – old enough not to chew your shoes, young enough to be great companions.
  • experienced in life’s lessons – dogs that know how to be part of a family.
  • homeless – all dogs in SDRO rescue were displaced from their homes due to a traumatic event: an owner’s illness, death, a move, a foreclosure, etc
  • all dogs live in foster homes with families who mentor them. At adoption time, you receive a full report on your dog.  No surprises.
  • All dogs go through a 2 week trial adoption in your home. Not the right dog after all?  We’ll come get it – no harm, no foul.  A perfect match means that much to us!
