Our Featured Pet...


My name is Rascal, and I am a chihuahua/Jack Russell mix. I'm a butterball at about 11 pounds and very cuddly. I would love to be with you everywhere and I ride nicely in the car, but if you have to leave, I'm ok by myself for awhile too. I would do best as an only dog, because I think all treats, toys, and food should be mine but supervised, I can play well with other dogs. If you'd like to be my new forever family, Please email Fran@k9homefinders.org for an application, and tell us a little about the home you have for me, where you are located, and a phone number would also be nice....I am waiting. My adoption fee of $150, an approved Application, and a great home is required...Until we have received your completed application, we cannot arrange a meeting.

Adoption Checklist

Before You Adopt Give This List Some Thought:

1. When you adopt, you need to make a real commitment to care for your pet for its entire life, no matter what that entails, just as you would with a child.

2. Be prepared for a pet to affect other parts of your life for as long as you have the pet (can be up to 15 years for a dog and 20 years for cat). Your petís well-being will have to be considered in all kinds of decisions, including travel, social life, relocating to a new home, adopting other pets, having children, etc.

3. Verify in advance that youíre allowed to keep a pet where you live, especially if you rent or belong to a homeownersí association.

4. Make any necessary modifications to your yard and fence, if you have one, to provide for your petís safety and to prevent your pet from escaping.

5. Never give a pet as a gift.

6. Choose a pet appropriate to your living situation and lifestyle. Figure out what size, age, and energy-level pet is most appropriate for you.

7. Never adopt a pet on a whim or because you feel itís love-at-first-sight. Do your research and carefully consider all the aspects and implications of adopting before you make a decision.

8. If youíre adopting a pet for your kids, understand that the responsibility is yours. Kids, by their nature, often tire of things that were once new and exciting, and this includes their pets. You will most likely end up being the one who provides most of the petís care.

9. Plan for a several-week adjustment period during which there will be challenges.

10. Provide sufficient exercise and stimulation. (Walk dogs according to individual need, provide playtime and appropriate toys for both dogs and cats, spend time just petting and talking to your pet, include pet in family activities.

Who We Are

K-9 Homefinders & Rescue, Inc. is a no-kill, 501-C3 non-profit, organization that was started, here in Albany. OR. in 1980, so we have been rescuing dogs for 30 years. For most of that time we were the only dog pound rescue that was saving the dogs out of the Linn County Dog Control. We would run the ad in the newspaper so people would know to check the pound for their dogs before they were killed. There was no Internet, so placement was allot harder. A large number of dogs were being euthanized. We would take a large amount of the dogs that were due to be euthanized that day, and some we saved when they were walking into the room where they put them down. We paid their fees, to get them out, give them their shots, spay/neuters, and any medical care needed. We are still available for kill-shelter rescue, for adoptable dogs, as space and funds allow. At this current time, we are transporting dogs from overcrowed high-kill shelters in other states that are in danger of being euthanized. (We very much need, and do accept donations, see below for some ways to help). We are also on call if needed when a dog is injured after hours with no owner. We help owners that can't keep their pets, find loving homes for them, by advertising, and taking applications to fine the best homes for them. We are an all volunteer group, solely run by your greatly needed donations. All funds go to help the animals. We are an all volunteer organization, with NO paid employees. We do it for the love of animals.
