I looked at the Oregon Humane Society website and it seems like they have a great success rate there

"How many pets do you place into new homes?

In 2011 OHS found homes for 11,521 pets. Our "save rate" (adoptions, plus transfers to other humane groups and reunions with owners) for dogs in 2011 was 99 percent; for cats it was 96 percent. Our adoption rates are quite impressive when compared to the national average (25 percent for dogs and 20 percent for cats). We are proud of our efforts and the Board, staff, and volunteers of OHS are committed to placing 100 percent of the animals brought to OHS for adoption into new, loving homes."


"How long do you keep animals?

Pets stay up for adoption as long as they remain physically and emotionally healthy. For some dogs this can mean living at the shelter for six months or more until the right home is available.

When looking for a new home, dogs generally wait an average of 8 days or less and cats wait an average of 9 days or less (kittens average 1 day while puppies are 3 days). OHS has found homes for dogs in less then 4 days and waited over 120 days to find the perfect home for some of our feline guests.

OHS has 249 volunteer foster families who care for newborns, pregnant cats, and recuperating dogs until they are ready to be placed up for adoption. In addition, foster families will shelter and care for animals when the kennels are full or if an individual animal needs a break from the stress of staying in the kennels. Our foster families directly saved the lives of 1,359 animals in 2011 alone."


"Is OHS a "no kill" facility?

There are no time limits placed on how long an animal is available for adoption at the Oregon Humane Society. Animals available for adoption are never euthanized because of space limitations. OHS euthanizes only for significant health or behavior issues and does not take lightly the decision to end a life.

Many "no kill" shelters are more accurately defined as limited admission facilities. The term "no kill" has, unfortunately, become a marketing tool rather than an honest description of the enormous undertaking of providing care for homeless pets. Some "no kill" shelters pick and choose which animals are acceptable for adoption, turning away many others who have a medical or behavioral condition or are deemed, according to that shelter's criteria, as unadoptable. Use of such vague, hard to define terms and ideals makes it confusing for pet owners trying to obtain services.

"No kill" does not mean no euthanasia, a key point often lost in this discussion. In the case of true "sanctuaries," where no euthanasia is practiced, there are painfully few instances where companion animals are maintained in a manner that preserves their physical and mental health.

Through effective use of our resources (including foster care volunteers, the Second Chance Program, and volunteer trainers) and medical care, OHS can provide rehabilitation (both behavioral and medical) treatment for many animals, increasing their chances of finding a home. Success is seen every day - for example, when an untrained 9 month old Labrador Retriever mix pup is transformed into a well mannered dog who can now sit, stay, and heel on command. Even a cat with a severe disability receives a new lease on life thanks to a foster volunteer and veterinarian who did not give up on the sightless cat. OHS is a place for second chances."

There are many of us on DT involved in Doberman rescue. In some places, I can vouch for Texas, we can't keep the dobermans out of the shelters! There are 4 Doberman rescues in TX that I know of and we still can't keep up with the stray and dumped purebred dobermans.

Yes our humane society is pretty awesome, and is apart of the second chance program. I just wanted a true dobe lover to adopt him, not someone who just likes the look or rep, you know? I will find an email for the organization you provided to let them know

Oh, looks like he is down from the site. I hope he found a good home. Unfortunately, in specific parts of portland, we still have idiots who get bully breeds and intimidating looking dogs for the wrong reasons...

As far as I know they have a pretty good screening process. So his chances of finding a good home is just as good there as it is in a dobe rescue.

He wasn't listed for long... I was on the site either yesterday or the day before and he wasn't listed. Glad he wasn't in there for very long!
