  • Spay/neuter

  • Any current medications or continuing care for certain pre-existing illnesses
  • Close support post-adoption, including some training and medical care if needed
  • Training, medical, and educational support throughout the life of your dog

Below are additional benefits we have created with local businesses in an effort to keep families happy and healthy for the entire life of your adopted dog.

Adopter Support

It is our goal to support each of our adopters so that they can keep their adoptive home happy and healthy. To do this, we have developed a veterinary care grant (Theo’s Fund) to help with unexpected but necessary costs. All donations made to our Adopter Support program will be used to keep dogs in their adoptive homes.

One Tail at a Time | PDX Programs

Theo’s Fund was created as a way for OTAT PDX to care for dogs suffering from medical problems or needing on-going treatment to remain healthy and happy. Funds from Theo’s Fund also help dogs that have already been adopted. Theo’s Fund allows OTAT PDX adopters to apply for up to $500 in assistance in paying for unexpectedly large veterinary bills.
