They were kinda, I'm trying to be nice... Snooty. I was looking to adopt a dog. They acted like they were doing you a favor. The smaller lady was just not friendly. Their adoption process apparently has to be approved by her. If you don't follow her instructions. You are not entitled enough to rescue.

AMAZING group of people working to find homes for these sweet dogs. We found a timid scared little pup who has just flourished once she settled in. It took a few days, but by day 3, I was able to pick her up! Something that Lindsey said they hadn't been able to do. We did rename her from Caty to Maisie. Our other dog took a couple of days to get over her jealousy of the new pup, but they get along great now and I often find them cuddled together. I would definitely recommend this dog rescue and will return when we look to rescue another dog in the future.

We love ODR. They rescued handsome Drake from California where he had a very rough life as a stray. They providdd medical care for him and we hit the jackpot when we adopted him almost 3 years ago. He is a senior with needs and I’m sure many places wouldn’t consider rescuing him. I am forever grateful for Oregon Dog Rescue and their amazing staff for gifting us this angel fur baby. He has been spoiled since the day he came home! And we will spoil him for the rest of his life!!! THANK YOU!!!!

There are wonderful people in this world, and most of them work here! Such a smooth process, and the dogs are well loved until you arrive to take them home and love them yourself. Thank you, friends at ODR for loving on our Pebbles until she joined our family.

We got our dog Hazel from ODR. I follow their Instagram account and love seeing the daily adoptions. Their photographer or photographers are fantastic and take the best photos it's hard not to adopt another dog but we have to and that is our limit. I was able to get a discount from my vet for my dog's first exam because I adopted from a rescue. They also offer free spay or neuter from select vet offices which is part of your adoption fee.

We adopted a young chihuahua named hail, who we now call Loki. The staff was amazing. They ask plenty of questions to make sure the dog is a good fit for your family. Some may think the prices are a little high, but they do so much for the dog including making sure they are up to date on their shots and being fixed.

Great people we found a great dog , just wish he didn’t have kennel cough, would have been a better bonding experience, at least we found him

My family and I adopted little Onix from here. They called within the same day and we met her/took her home the next. Very sweet staff and you can tell they care a lot for those animals. My husband and I plan on adopting from here again soon :)

We're going to the pound in Troutdale for a pup. This location is close, however it has been an experience of slot gambling. Pick a pet, put in an app, and be ready to go in next day - if you're called. Thing is. SO many pups need home. I don't know what exactly is going on with this place. But if you can provide a good home, we're thinking the pound. Not the local highly difficult adoption agency.

One of the women who works here is incredibly gruff and terse. My husband and I are both almost 30, and she treated us both like little children and was very condescending and cold. She talked down to us even though I’m an experienced dog owner. The facility also seems to rush visitors which is not acceptable when you’re looking for a forever companion! Does not seem to truly care about the dogs (at least the woman we always encounter!) This was over two years ago, but the experience stuck with me. The dogs are also very very smelly and do not seem like they’re kept adequately clean.

You can tell that people here love their jobs. Make sure to visit the website and pick 2 dogs that you are most interested in... then make an appointment. I love that my puppy had everything he needed already taken care of (shots, neuter, chip). Such a lovely experience.

Was a little worried reading some of the reviews, but after actually going there and going through with everything myself, I have to say nothing but amazing things about them. Super friendly and not pushy, cared about the animals and are definitely trying to make sure they go to FOREVER homes. So their screening process is thorough. (Complain all you want about "everyone having to be there". I'm positive it's to prevent people bringing back a dog saying "my wife didn't want her once I got home" which I can guarantee happens) But anyways, I went, had an amazing experience from start to end, and got an amazing and healthy dog into my forever home.

Absolutely atrocious agency. The worst customer service & presentation i have ever received from the owner Debbie, treatment and facility cleanliness. I will NEVER be returning here or recommending this facility to family or friends.

I came with my 3 year old in hopes to visit some dogs and consider having one join our family. I was told it was by appointment only- totally fine… but you can’t even make your own appointment. You have to wait for them to call you with an appointment. Then I was told that because I had a child under 5, we couldn’t even adopt a dog that was not a puppy… what?! So because I have a 3 year old child I can’t adopt a 1 year old dog? I was also told every single member of the household must come to an appointment. The person at the front desk was not very welcoming. I realize this is an animal rescue- but making it difficult for a family to adopt a dog seems to do the opposite of what a rescue is intended for.

My experience was a saddening one. If you submit your paperwork for a dog submittal, they will not contact you if they don't want your dog. I was told your paperwork goes to a third party that isnt on site... However they will take time to say over the phone your dog sounds like a perfect fit for us and string you along. After asking others in the community there are people who have had some ridiculous encounters with these people. They also make you agree to a pretty ridiculous contract if you adopt. You arent able to seek medical care where you want.... Adopter or dog surrenders beware

We ended up getting a puppy from these guys and we had an amazing experience. You can tell they really love their rescues.

Very polite and helpful. The entire process from filling out the adoption request to bringing home our new puppy was less than a day. Gave us time for the entire family to meet our newest addition and was forthcoming with all the information needed.

Although we did not adopt today, we felt like this place is doing things right. My boyfriend and I came in to see Curtis (a very good but very scared boy). Susan was helpful in providing some info and background on Curtis and also allowing us time alone to see how he would do with us. We determined it probably wasn’t the right fit because we live in an apartment community which might be a little too much for him. Susan made us feel good in our decision. We will be coming back when we see another potentially good fit! Thanks ODR :)

THIS IS DILL. I adopted this sweet baby knowing he had a reputation for being reactive. I was ready for that but not his separation anxiety. I returned him after multiple calls with the rescue. Medications, crating, vigorous exercise. They reposted him with no mention of such. Please don’t adopt this boy if you’re not home essentially 24/7. He self destruct alone. I’m upset the shelter isn’t including this in his needs.

My spouse & I went to this shelter to do a meet & greet to possibly adopt a companion for our generally well behaved, albeit a bit timid 2yr old Texas rescue, who had a bad time in her previous home. When we arrived, the staff were not very welcoming and proceeded to immediately lecture us on our leash choice, which is an adjustable length leash with a lock to prevent too much slack (first red flag). The leash is perfectly good and allows the dog a bit more freedom when possible, but you DO need to know how to use it. Also, combined, we have had over a dozen dogs in our lifetimes, so we might know one or two things about handling dogs. They then told us we would walk around a bit with the two dogs to gauge their chemistry. The area they had us do this is in a driveway/parking lot where cars are around and busy trying to get from place to place (second red flag). After they determined that it might be all right to have the dogs actually interact, we assumed we would have some time in a safe open area to allow the dogs to interact normally and you know.... be dogs. No! What they call a meet and greet is 4 people & 2 dogs standing around crammed into a small 8x8 cubicle with all of us constantly holding the dogs apart (3rd red flag). This caused our dog to be nervous and both dogs to act completely unnatural, which immediately worried and made us think this might have been a wasted trip. When our dog finally tried to play a bit (moved suddenly trying to initiate a chase), their dog made some noise (completely natural for a dog you know), This caused one of the handlers to react like our dog had done something wrong. My spouse tried to comfort our dog who again is a bit timid around too many people in a completely too small a space, a staff member (the one who lectured us on our leash choice) told us not do that because it's rewarding our dog for bad behavior.... WHAT?!? Our dog did nothing wrong (fourth & final red flag). At that point my spouse was done and wanted to go. We had gone there to look at multiple dogs and really try to find a good fit, but their apparent lack basic dog behavior and customer service left us disappointed and vowing never to adopt from this shelter. Which is a shame because we would have given one of their dogs a forever home on a large piece of land in the country. We will of course find one, just not one of theirs.....

These people running the dog rescue are incredible. We got to spend as much time as we wanted with a dog before we decided to adopt. There was no pressure from the staff. They were willing and able to answer questions and offered useful advice. Please use them when considering getting a dog. You will not be disappointed.
