    These dogs found their perfect forever home through One Tail at a Time PDX.

    • AND! Look who ELSE got adopted! Weeks ago, actually, we just suck at this. Fabio (now Yoshi) joins big bro Bowser (doesn't get better than this, folks) and some dang adorable parents to be the absolute perfect little family who couldn't be better for this dude if we hand picked em ourselves. Which we kinda did because, you know, we review the applications n stuff. And believe us when we say, these four were meant to be. Good boy, Yoshi. #foster #rescue #adoptdontshop #foreverdog #pdx

Our Mission

One Tail at a Time PDX is a no-kill, 501(c)3 all-breed dog rescue committed to lowering euthanasia rates through the rescue and adoption of dogs in need; comprehensive support of adopters; and community outreach through humane education programs and assistance for disadvantaged and low-income families. The rescue began in Chicago, IL in 2008 and expanded to Portland, OR in 2014. All OTAT PDX dogs live in approved, loving and committed volunteer foster homes.​
