    • #otatpdxalum Magpie went to the vet today for a minor procedure and was surprised to see herself! Thank you to Companion Pet Clinic of NE for offering opportunities to donate to rescue dogs in need this holiday season. We can’t do this work without the help of our community, and all the Magpies we still have yet to save sure do appreciate the support.

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.​
