About Us


Lots of new dogs come see us and have a look.


Adopting A Friend

All rescue business is conducted at the Petsmart located at 8825 SW Cascade Ave,  Beaverton OR 97007 on Thursday 4-7pm and Saturdays 11-5pm.  EMAILING OR COMING in person to the adoption events is the best way to contact us, as we only have 3  people who work full time in the rescue.

We have 3 requirements for adopting a dog from us:

1.  NO OUTSIDE DOGS.  You cannot maintain any dog from us outside, in a garage or a dog run.  We place house dogs only.

2.  RETURN.  If for some reason you cannot keep the dog you adopted from us or in the event that we are not able to get along as adopter and rescue partner - the adopted dog will be returned to the rescue immediately.

3.  TRAINING.  Our goal is not to send you home with a "pre trained" dog.  We do not house train, or work on basic commands of any kind.  Therefore all of our rescue dogs require training - so at the time of adoption you will need to commit to taking training.  You can arrange when you start classes at a later date, but the package must be purchased at the time of adoption.

OPTIONS OF ADOPTION:  Adopt at PetSmart, Adopt via phone:

Adopt at PetSmart is just that, you come to the PetSmart, pick a dog and take it home. 

Adopt via phone - you can adopt any dog/puppy over the phone and pick it up on Thursday or Saturday. Just email us we will provide you with a phone number to call to adopt by credit card over the phone  

Before you leave the Petsmart with your newly adopted friend you will be REQUIRED to have a collar and ID on the dog.

Adoption fee covers spay/neuter, shots, worming, vet check, misc surgeries if needed (hernia repair, broken leg fixed, etc), and any treatment or medication should the dog/puppy become ill once you get him/her home within the first 7 to 10 days.  All dogs/puppies are health guaranteed through the rescue vet only and the rescue will NOT reimburse medical expenses should you choose to use your own vet or fail to contact the rescue for medical help. Our adoption fee is comparable to the other rescues in the area. Adoption fees are non-refundable, however you can pick another dog. We accept cash - no checks or cards for payment of adoption fee.

Who We Are

I am Samantha.  I am an Animal Behaviorist.  I have been licensed since 2001.  All Terrier Rescue is a licensed Oregon 501 C (3) Non Profit business since 1999.   I am here to help you find the perfect pet for your family or particular situation.  I have extensive schooling and knowledge in working with all kinds of dogs in all kinds of situations. There is no one who knows more about rescue dogs and the rescue world than me.  I am here to save dogs and help you in every facet of adoption.

I partner with several different kill shelters and transport entities to help dogs that would otherwise be euthanized due to the dog population in the area being greater than the people population - there are literally no homes available for the dogs we take from these small towns.  All the dogs I work with are thoroughly temperament tested, vet checked, spayed/neutered.  I focus on issues of adoptabilty such as handleability, crate training, pulling on the leash, jumping, barking, socialization, etc. 

The shelters I partner with are in a crises situation - the people population  is not able to support the population of dogs in their shelters. In a shelter environment - not getting walked on leashes, not having adequate socialization and most importantly not being touched.  With a little time and effort these dogs bond with humans quickly and learn that a "home life" is far better than a concrete dog run.

My adoption partner is the PetSmart located at 8825 SW Cascade Ave, Beaverton OR 97008.  I am there every Thursday 4-7pm and Saturday from 11-5 pm with the dogs listed on this site.
