Do you accept problem cases?
We specialize in fearful, traumatized, and feral dogs. Please feel free to email if you have questions.
There are so many reasons to adopt an older dog. They tend to be lower-maintenance than puppies. They tend to appreciate you deeply as you are a welcome improvement over their previous circumstances. Their personalities are more developed, so you have a better idea of what you are getting. And you know exactly the size and weight of your adult dog! But most importantly, older dogs NEED great homes. They, like black dogs, unfortunately, are harder to home than younger ones, so if you truly want to adopt because you want to support rescue and to help needy dogs, then the best way to do that is to adopt a dog that is likely to be overlooked by the average person, such as an older dog.
Generally, adopters must be within 3 to 4 hours driving distance of the sanctuary or an established volunteer. Currently, locations include some of the west coast from Washington state to Northern California (with a few exceptions).
We are always in need of donations to keep the sanctuary running safe and cozy for the dogs, and to keep our public programs running to help other dogs and their people. Donations large or small may be sent via the Send Money option of PayPal, or via mail to Hound Sanctuary, Box 670, Warrenton, Oregon 97146, USA. Please consider making Sighthound Sanctuary & Animal Services your Amazon Smile beneficiary as well as Hound Sanctuary your eBay Giving beneficiary. You can even include Sighthound Sanctuary & Animal Services in your will; if you choose to do this, is best to have your attorney assist you in arranging it to ensure that it is done legally in case anyone contests it. Please email us at HoundSanctuary@gmail.com to obtain the necessary identifying information on our charity. We also have a NEEDS wish list at Amazon.com: Amazon.com Needs-Wish list
