Adopting A Friend

Our adoption process:

THURSDAYS 4-7PM The dogs/puppies are located at the Petsmart :  8825 SW Cascade Ave, Beaverton OR 97007 

SATURDAYS 11-5pm The dogs/puppies are located at the Petsmart in Beaverton AND Tigard:  8825 SW Cascade Ave, Beaverton OR 97007 - Tigard: 7501 SW Dartmouth Street, Tigard OR 97223 - 12 noon to 5 pm.

Email the rescue with a picture of the dog/puppy you want to see then come in person to have a meet and greet.  

Dogs/puppies are not viewable any other time or day.  This also applies if you are returning a dog that is not working out.

We do not place dogs/puppies in homes that intend to keep them outdoors, in a garage or shed - or any other place than the actual house - we place house dogs only.  No exceptions.

We do not children or cat test.  The rescue places dogs with families that have children over the age of 8 yrs at their discretion.

The adoption process takes several hours so make sure you have have a full day to dedicate to finding your new best friend.

Who We Are

All Terrier Rescue was founded and incorporated in 1991.  Jeri and Samantha Miller the owners of the rescue started out by having a wonderful Scottish Terrier named Tessa.  Tessa helped them join the Terrier Association, National Scottie Rescue and several other breed related clubs.  In 1990 the Miller's started fostering for the Oregon Humane Society and shortly there after All Terrier Rescue was born. 

Jeri and Samantha run the show at All Terrier Rescue.  7 days a week they are taking care of the dogs you don't see at the Petsmart, running dogs to grooming, vet, specialists, etc.  The kennel for the rescue houses anywhere from 50 to 100 dogs at any given time - the dogs come in different stages of health from really, really critical to ok.  So its a very very stressful job and a tremendous amount of responsibility to keep everything in tip top shape.  Then there is their own pack of lovelies to take care of at home.  

Over the many years we have participated in hundreds of property seizures, hoarding situations, hurricanes and feral dog population round ups.  We have participated for many years in aiding the country of Mexico in its ongoing Distemper/Influenza problem, feral dog problem and starving street dog population.  Our knowledge of the shelter world and horrible pet overpopulation problems is extensive.  

We believe in helping the underdog shelter so all the dogs in our rescue have come from shelters where the people population does not support the dog population - Thousands of dogs are destroyed in small towns because there are simply just no homes for them there.  So we work with animal transport companies and high kill shelters to bring the dogs here for placement.  You will see that we usually have a great selection of puppies as well as adult dogs - this is becuase if there are simply no homes for these animals where they live now then the fact is the fact it does not matter if its a puppy or adult they are euthanizing - it does not matter if its a purebred or mix, or even a very rare purebred - plain and simple; no homes means, no homes.  

Many of these dogs have been running loose on the streets for months or years, have been starving on the end of a chain, or been in the Animal Control Facilities for months - some even born their and lived their for months or years.  We are working with these shelters to get those dogs here and ready for forever loving homes.  So when you come to our adoption event hoping the see "previously owned" dogs - you will not.  You will see the eyes of a clean slate that is ready to work and bond with you.  Some of the dogs have had horrible living conditions or been on the street so long that they are in a bit of "work in progress" state - meaning maybe they are not 100% yet.  They will be with some time and good love.

We successfully place approximately 1,000 dogs a year. We finished 2015 with 1,083 dog adoptions.  

2016 we placed 1,123 and have already made a fantastic start of 2017 with as of May 857.

Since we started in 1191 we have saved a total of 32,120 dogs to date!

That's pretty spectacular for just three gals who set out to help some dogs!

We have a 2% return rate.  Giving us a 96% successful placement rating.

We have an excellent team of employees who are dedicated to our cause, and excellent Veterinary Care available to all our Adopters.
