  • Happy Tails (408)

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

    • SloSmoMoFo and her brother Challah are the first of our new Foodstuffs crew to not be feeling well. Luckily we learned from last time and went straight to a more aggressive no pneumonia protocol with them both. Fingers crossed it works and we avoid hospitalization. Even still, we know if things get tough the tough get going and y’all the toughest, especially our members who donate one lunch out a month to help us save more dogs in need each and every month. That’s one of the ways we can keep saying yes even when they sometimes get sick. The other membership perks are just gravy. Want to become a member? Link in bio to learn more. Don’t worry, Slo, we got you.
