i just can't say enough how amazing and dedicated Mandy and her family is. I have been volunteering there three years and I have become Mandy's full time little dog person. It is so much more than a rescue. The transformation i have seen in these dogs is something I wish the community can see. Every dog there has suffered through so much hardship and Mandy, her family, and the volunteers really help these dogs heal physically, emotionally, mentally, I really don't think I'm ever going to meet someone with Mandy's dedication, love, passion, and her attitude of never giving up on a dog no matter how horrendous the behavior or the medical issues are. I'm always amazed what I learn from Mandy on a daily basis and the transformation I see in the dogs

Sevadog goes so much further than just being a rescue. They train and socialize all of their dogs before they get adopted out. They live on-site with the dogs and their love and commitment to them is top notch. One of the few rescues that take in pitbulls, they have saved numerous pittys from certain death, as they were able to turn them around so that their true loving, sweet nature came through. Please support them financially so they can continue to do what they do so very, very well.

I have been a volunteer with Mandy and SevaDog Rescue for over three years and I have seen how many dogs Mandy has saved and found good homes for. SevaDog is also a Sanctuary for some dogs who are our Forever Dogs. We care for them, play, train and exercise them to give them the most homelike life possible. At SevaDog, love comes first. Mandy works on a shoestring budget yet helps distribute food, supplies and training advice to other rescues. Mandy has an iron will to rescue, rehabilitate, and train our dogs and her record speaks for itself.

I have been a volunteer for Mandy Cracknell and SevaDog, for over two years and a board member for one year. I have been fortunate to work with such a dedicated, knowledgeable and kind kennel manager and trainer as Mandy. I first came to volunteer for SevaDog when Mandy rescued a dog from Greenhill Humane Society, where I was volunteering. His name was, appropriately, “Chance.” Chance was a willful four year old who had two bite history. Greenhill approved the transfer and Mandy accepted him despite the fact she had a full kennel at the time. She welcomed Chance, trained him, and adopted him to a great home within six months. I can recount the story of many dogs that faced certain euthanasia had not Mandy answered the call and saved them. Sevadog gives its dogs enriching routines and training and Mandy has found homes that have been excellent matches. Mandy and Sevadog ensure that the dogs have play time outside, human affection, training and enrichment. Mandy and Sevadog have also been outstanding community rescue and resource. Sevadog donates food; sponsors spay and neuter procedures, and offers training and medical advice. Sevadog provides lifetime training and support for all adopting families and will always accept a dog if returned. I am proud of Sevadog’s efforts to establish a true local rescue for long term dogs, training, and boarding.

So selfless and caring people run this organization. A great service to our community and the best part is....they love dogs. Everything they do is for the good of the animals. No kill, and often times last chance, they work so hard to make these dogs adoptable. I have volunteered periodically, and I highly recommend this great organization for dog adoption, training and boarding. SEVADOG is the real deal.

I've been a volunteer (off and on when I can) with sevadog for the past 6 months or so. I've worked with other organizations and sevadog has THE MOST caring and qualified staff. No dog goes unnoticed and all are treated so great. I can't thank them enough for their selfless acts and giving their heart and soul to the health and wellbeing to last-chance dogs. Amazing people and amazing program !!

I love Sevadog. I use them for boarding when we go out of town. They get the best care and usually hate to leave. They are an asset to our community.

I can't say enoung about Mandy and her crew at Sevadog. I have used them several times for boarding Jack and Dexter. When I come to pick them up they hate to leave. They get their own furnished room and a big yard to play in. Mandy and her crew work with then while they are there for some added training. She takes the time to give pupdates so you know how they are doing. Her passion and compassion for dogs is neverending.

How does one adequately describe the depth of love, caring, faith and sheer tenaciousness of this organization?

Mandy, family, dedicated volunteers and generous donors work wonders to save scores of abandoned and abused dogs. These dogs simply want what we human beings want - to feel safe and be loved. Sevadog makes this possible.

I adopteded my dog Monty early this summer from Sevadog. My trainer Liz Williams of Oregon Dog Sports spotted him for me. My life has been deeply blessed by this little guy.

Monty’s background - He was found abandoned and tied up to a fence with a broken leg. I’ll never understand how someone could be so heartless.

Monty was nursed back to health - both physically and emotionally. With Team Sevadog’s dedication, hours of care, sweat and tears and patience, his spirit has remained intact.

Monty is a greeter and lover of people and other animals, bright minded beyond belief and a creator of spontaneous smiles and new relationships.

These days, Monty is working his way to be a full fledged service dog for me. He is smart and inquisitive, calm yet highly alert - traits that help me safely navigate a world full of sounds that I can’t hear.

Mandy and all of you who are a part of Team Sevadog - by saving Monty and the other dogs you’ve saved/and will save, the impact you make is greater than you probably realize.

You are valued and appreciated. Thank you for never giving up on these beautiful souls!

I first learned about Sevadog’s incredible rehabilitation and rehoming skills through Hope for Paws. Sevadog was a highly regarded and trusted resource for helping frightened or less mannerly dogs get a new lease on life. Because of this, I reached out to Mandy and her team when our organization rescued a dog dealing with severe kennel stress. Mandy is calm, confident, knowledgeable, and tenacious. I trust Sevadog’s ability to assess a dog’s behavior and create ways to help the dog (and its future adopters) succeed. Sevadog is a gem of a resource and works wonders.

SevaDog is one of the best things that I have had the opportunity to work with. Mandy has taught me so much as a young girl about confidence, hard work, and determination. Even more, she is one of the most caring and hard working women I have ever met. She gives all of her efforts everyday to these dogs to give them a better life and to show them the love that they have never known, but have always deserved. She shows me everyday her selflessness and her love towards others. I feel so welcomed and appreciated everyday I’m at SevaDog and I’m so glad I’ve been able to work with this amazing crew.

Awesome dog rescue. They do wonders with dogs that other rescues and people say that there is no hope for problem dogs but Sevadog has been doing miracles for those dogs and all of their dogs. Kind compassionate and caring. Super rescue.

I actually adopted a wonderful pug with the help of SevaDog. In my case, it was actually rehoming a dog because her previous family had allergy issues, so with the help of SevaDog I met Jazzy, whom I adopted. She's a wonderful addition to our family (I already owned a pug and a Beagle and have learned how to walk three dogs at once.) I've worked closely with SevaDog over the past few years and have seen the dedication, love and training they give to each of the dogs in their care. I think it's a wonderful organization.

Mandie's rescue was near my house at one time time and I would see her walking her dogs nurturing her dogs caring for her dogs every day . She and her children were such an inspiration to me as I witnessed her true devotion and love for animals. One day my own dog my beautiful Shepherd Hope was having a hard time and Mandie came to my rescue and helped me with her I'll never forget her for that she was my angel. I love you Mandie I'll always love you for that day and for what I witnessed on my block every day as you and your family cared for those that no one cared about you're the best you're a true angel.

We adopted our little Maddie Moo from SevaDog and it was one of the best experiences ever. They worked with us to make sure that she would be a good fit for our family and allowed us to come in for training/introduction visits with our other dog before we finalized the adoption. We even utilize them for boarding and it puts my mind at ease knowing that my fur babies are in good hands while we're away.

Seva dog is a special rescue, not all rescues truly promise they will be there forever to a shelter dog but Seva truely does forever and no matter what to the hardest case most emotionally twisted and completely forgotten.
Thank you for caring more about those in your care then your own comforts and time.
