    • It’s been quiet… TOO quiet. And y’all know what that means. No, the Enchirito isn't back at Taco Bell — we wish. But we have been busy saving dogs, including 6 sea creatures we plan to welcome this weekend in Eugene with the help of @nwdogproject (more on that later). Right now we wanna welcome to the good life the 3 new handsome fellows who arrive in just a couple hours from @kauaihumanesociety; we’ll go live as soon as they land. Macbeth, Hamlet, Oberon? Hopeth you boys like nacho fries.

Our Mission

One Tail at a Time | PDX is an 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 2015. All OTAT PDX dogs live in approved, loving and committed volunteer foster homes.​
