Welcome to The Heart Of Rescue.
We are a foster-based, 501(c)3 non-profit rescue located in Eugene and Portland, Oregon, plus Los Angeles, California. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home at-risk animals, primarily from the West Coast. We specialize in Rottweiler’s, but also welcome dogs of every breed and size. Plus the occasional cat.
Our dogs are mainly rescued from high-kill shelters in California, Oregon, and Washington. We are often their last hope. We also accept some owner-surrenders. The Heart of Rescue relies on adopters in Oregon, Washington, and California to provide our babies with loving, “furever” homes.

To expedite the process, please complete the application instead of calling. If all required fields on the application are not answered, we will not receive the application. We recommend e-mailing after completing the application to confirm it has been received. We will call you for an interview 24 to 72 hours after receiving your application. If that does not occur, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (541) 782-THOR (8467).
Please note: we only adopt to families in Oregon, Washington, and California. We do not “ship” our animals. Animals up for adoption must be met near the location they are being fostered.
