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

    • Adoptable Marley letting you know that our Spring Membership drive is back on after a pause to focus all social media efforts on finding Bunny. The thing of it is though, whether we’re looking for Bunny, saving new dogs from shelters or staying committed to the ones we adopt out for their lifetime, we need funds to do so. For the same price as one pizza a month our members help us save lives and not give up on them, ever. Sign up this week during our (continued) drive to win merch — today’s gift is so new we haven’t even sold them at events yet (swipe to see). Pick a logo beanie in any color when we draw your name for becoming a member today and everybody who signs up wins at least the membership gift of socks. Link in bio. You won’t miss that $10 but it’ll make the world of difference to dogs like Marley.
