Adoption Information

Adoption Information

For all potential adopters, we require:
  • a completed application
  • a phone interview
  • a meet-and-greet
  • a home visit, plus
  • a contract, plus
  • post-adoption follow-ups

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 adoption@theheartofrescue.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.
