Find a Friend recommended resources by Family Animal Services of Portland

Nothing compares to the loss of a beloved pet. However, should the time come to add a new companion to your family, we recommend the following local organizations.

Trusted Partner of Family Animal Services of Portland

Animal Rescue & Care Fund, Inc. began in 1974, when a few individuals formed a new animal rescue organization. Their mission is to rescue, shelter, and care for homeless animals and place them in permanent responsible homes; to promote and support spay/neuter for all companion animals.

In the past thirty years, they have rescued, fostered, and adopted out thousands of animals and dispensed valuable advice to many people in need of help. They are a small all-volunteer organization working from their homes, never straying from the mission of serving animals in need.

Hopes Haven

Hopes Haven began as a dream for our founder, Marsha Chambers. A televised news story about a case of obscene animal abuse broke her heart. Marsha, called the humane society and asked if the Doberman on the newscast could be held for her to adopt if she survived. Caregivers named the Doberman Hope.

Hope’s life had been one of being chained inside a barn and forced to have litter after litter of puppies, all while rarely seeing the light of day. Although Hope never did fully recover. She did indeed survive and lived with Marsha for almost thirteen months before she died. Hopes Haven is a tribute to her and to all the innocent dogs that have had their trust betrayed by unworthy guardians.
