Willamette Humane Society has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in Salem, Oregon.
"Pet adoption today looks a lot different than it did when I was a kid," Sen. Courtney said before the Oregon Senate Committee on Environment and Natural Resources. "In the Salem area, adopting a dog from the Willamette Humane Society starts at $100 and can go up to $350. Kittens, which used to be given away free in front of grocery stores, are now available for adoption for $100."
Do I have to live in the Salem area to adopt? Do I need money to spay/neuter before we leave that day, or is that included? Are there going to be more adoptable dogs than what you currently have listed on your website? Thanks in advance!

Ore. -- A bill introduced in the Oregon Senate would allow a tax credit of up to $100 for someone who adopts a dog or cat from an animal rescue facility.Second Chance Salem has many wonderful volunteers but here is a little bit about my skill set and background. I have been working in and around shelter/rescue work for about 25 years (some time off for child rearing). I have worked in Humane Societies in California and Oregon. I have been employed by them as everything from Spay and Neuter Receptionist to Adoptions Counselor to Euthanasia Technician. I have fostered for multiple rescues and worked with countless dog trainers. In my current volunteer position with Second Chance Salem, I wear many hats and work closely with many people. I am a very hands on person and I take this work seriously. I am especially fond of giant breeds, pitties, and terriers. My son has a special skill with Dachshunds and my daughter prefers to work with the bigger dogs. I walk my dogs on lead and practice basic obedience and finer house manners on all my dogs every day. I have a number of my own dogs in a very balanced pack. All of my dogs are crate trained house dogs with supervised access to a large securely fenced backyard. Our rescue dogs live in homes with families, dogs, cats and kids."We would pick up dogs sentenced to death and bring them back to rehabilitate them and try to find them loving homes," said Kidd, who lives in the Salem area. He said the dogs were given both dry and wet dog food. "They weren't all starving," he said. Kidd said of Inglish, "She didn't want the dogs to die. That's all she cared about."Cathleen Schaff, who saw Inglish's mug shot Monday, said she recognized her as the woman from whom she adopted an 8-week-old puppy in 2009. Inglish ran the Northwest Animal Rescue Alliance in Salem at the time, Schaff said.
Schaff said she tried to reach Inglish after the dog was diagnosed with Parvo because about 10 more dogs were in the car with her when Schaff's was dropped off. Inglish stopped returning her messages, Schaff said. "That's when radio silence occurred," she said. "We love our dog and we weren't threatening her or anything, but it seemed like information that a responsible shelter person would want." Inglish's dogs remain at area shelter. In Portland, the cost to shelter and care for the 110 dogs is more than $3,000 daily, Harmon said, with higher costs accessed for the sickest animals.-- -- --
