Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals has been working tirelessly for many years to save homeless pets from high-kill shelters.

OFOSA has grown from a small kitchen table operation with a handful of passionate animal lovers to become a respected leader in this cause, helping to support several local shelters, rescues and hundreds of foster homes. We transport thousands of animals every year out of overcrowded kill shelters from as far away as California. We have skilled and trained medical staff with a fully functioning spay and neuter clinic, providing thousands of surgeries per year. Also allowing us to be one of the few shelters in the Northwest that will tackle hard to treat medical illnesses and infections such as ringworm and the parvo virus.

Multiple times per month volunteers jump in our custom configured transport vehicle and make their way to over populated kill shelters and gather as many animals as we can safely take back to our campus in Oregon. We also receive air transportations through the good people at Wings of Rescue who bring in animals from other kill shelters, that would otherwise be beyond our reach.

With the help of our adoption partners, PetSmart and Petco, and our dedicated volunteers, we are proud that we have been able to provide homes for over 90% of our rescued animals.

Every animal that we get at OFOSA is unique in personality and circumstance, however, we follow the same specific processes to provide the best possible outcome for a healthy, happy animal and a successful adoption. Some of our processes are listed below:

      Medical Evaluation & Treatment
      Spay or Neuter, without exception
      Microchip
      Vaccinations, Worm & Flea/Tick Treatment
      FIV/FLeuk Test on all Cats

      Placing in Foster Home when available
