Central Oregon Animal Friends is the leading animal rescue organization in northern Central Oregon, serving an area of more than 11,000 square miles and a population of more than 275,000 people, many of whom live in rural communities with among the highest poverty rates in our state. In this role we receive animals into our care that have experienced extreme neglect and in many cases have never received medical or dental attention.
At our two sister shelters–Three Rivers Humane Society in Madras and Home at Last Humane Society in The Dalles–we make it our mission to fight for abused and abandoned animals and foster a community where no companion animal will be killed because it is homeless.
From the Columbia Gorge to south of Madras, from Warm Springs to Hood River, we care for and adopt out more than 1,500 dogs and cats per year in service to this mission. Whether their names are Mr. Pickles, Sir Buckwheat, Porsche or Peanut Butter Falcon–we take them all!
Our services include community spay and neuter programs, partnership with residents and law enforcement on the Warm Springs reservation to support healthy pets, caring for lost animals, taking law enforcement holds, and adopting out stray animals or animals needing to be re-homed. For every animal that comes into our care, we also dig deep into our budget to afford whatever medical care these animals require before adoption.
