The Oregon Humane Society’s Dog of the Day is Stephen. He is a seven month old Chihuahua mix that has traveled a long way to find his new home here in the Pacific NW. He's wary of new people and situations and would prefer a quiet household where he can take things at his pace. Young or rambunctious kids are too much for Stephen and he would do best in an adult only home. He loves a comfy lap to lie in, and promises to keep you toasty warm on these cold days. Stephen would love to have another dog to play with. He shares toys and dishes happily and loves to run around and play with other dogs. If you are interested in learning more about Stephen, please contact the OHS foster care team at 503-285-7722.
Stephen’s adoption fee includes neuter, microchip ID, collar and OHS ID tag, initial vaccines, courtesy veterinarian exam, and plenty of post adoption support! Availability is subject to prior adoption.
Dogs are also available at the Oregon Humane Society’s Westside Adoption Center located inside at Lexi Dog Boutique and Social Club, 6100 SW Macadam Ave., Portland. If you want know if your potential new best friend gets along with other dogs, this is the place to visit. OHS dogs spend their days in a large group area alongside other dogs in a doggie day care facility. Kittens are also available for adoption here and they all live in "colony rooms" with their fellow felines. Visiting and adoption hours for both dogs and kittens are 10-6 Monday-Friday; and 10-4 Saturday-Sunday at the Westside Adoption Center.
Every Tuesday the Oregon Humane Society offers an adoption special for people age 60 and up. A select group of 20 pets will be available for adoption to seniors at no charge every Tuesday. All other pets will have their adoption fees reduced by $50 when they are adopted by individuals over 60 on Tuesday.
