Pets Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3)
corporation dedicated to rescuing Pomeranians and other petite
breeds located in NW Oregon and Washington. Our mission is to
help Little Dogs, that are under 10 pounds, whether they come
from the shelter or from an owner surrender. Loss of income,
home, illness, relocation, divorce, re-zoning are all things
that happen in people's lives and we provide a safety net to
keep these little guys from being turned into a shelter.
We work to find these dogs

We work to educate current owners and to decide the
best solution for their situation. Sometimes a frustrating
situation can be solved with some caring training and
assistance. Where necessary we will take in rescue dogs
