Hood River Adopt A Dog is the non-profit organization that cares for all shelter dogs at the county-owned Hukari Shelter in Odell, OR. We provide veterinary treatment and adoption services for unclaimed, lost or abandoned dogs.

Our program is successful, is well run and continues to grow. Our small staff and a roster of volunteers work hard to make this happen – providing over 5,000 hours of care each year. Our volunteers provide twice daily care at-shelter – 365 days a year – and we have foster families who take dogs into their homes while they await permanent placement. Each dog leaves our program in better shape than when they arrived at the shelter.

With funds raised by Hood River Adopt A Dog, all adopted dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and, all too often, are provided urgent medical care made necessary from previous neglect or injury. We rely on donations, small grants, fundraisers and minimal adoption fees to do this work. In return for their care, our dogs “pay it forward” by bringing fun and love to their new families!
