We adopted 3 dogs from Senior Dog Rescue and they have been absolutely wonderful! They got back to me when they said they would and made the adoption process as easy as possible. They also did everything they could, including all shots and dentals, to make sure that the dog was ready to be adopted.

I can't say enough about this great organization! I love my dogs!

Very surprised to read the previous review. I've adopted and fostered several dogs for Senior Dog Rescue of Oregon. I've also adopted dogs from other organizations in Oregon. None were as helpful, careful or thorough as SDRO. I received complete health & history info on all my dogs. One even received luxating patella surgery (both knees) at no cost to me. Dogs in foster homes are provided w/ food, vet care, grooming - there is even a FREE certified trainer to answer questions or help w/ any problems. Their adoption fees are very reasonable considering the dog is completely gone over by a vet- all shots, spay/neuter, dental, etc. I will adopt my next dog from SDRO! The dogs are fabulous: so loving for all they've been through. I like that all dogs are in foster homes so
a very complete report is available for the adopter.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it much bigger so more older dogs are saved

This charity is dear to my heart - rescuing and finding homes for senior dogs who are just asking for a second chance. My last two dogs have been seniors, and they couldn't make better companions. My current shih tzu is 19-20 years old. I help with the sdroregon.com website and also with their petfinder page. I find the staff and board members of this charity to be very responsive and hard-working people, who all volunteer their time and energies and open their own homes to fostering and adopting. I've worked closely with three staff members and all are dedicated to the goals of this nonprofit.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get it better known so that more donations and grants would be given to further their work with finding homes for senior dogs.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

I signed up to foster, but I was pressured into keeping the dog. I have had the dog for 22 months now and have been begging for background information on her to deal with her many health problems. My requests have been ignored. I have asked them to take the dog back. They say they have no place for her, although, their Facebook page has offered new dogs since. I told them I needed them to take the dog back before I had a complete collapse as I am also dealing with a mother in the advanced stage of Alzheimer's. I was told my message would be forwarded to the board. That was over a week ago. It has been a nightmare. These are the worst kind of pet lovers, the kind that are heartless towards people. I can not say enough against them.
