If you are considering rescuing a new kitty or puppy, cat or dog, or other pet friend, here is some information I found on the best animal shelter websites near my local Portland, Oregon area – the four top rated by Google.
Oregon Humane Society
First and foremost, the Oregon Humane Society received 4.5 stars of 5 out of 2.6K votes. Impressive I would say, and definitely rating as one of the best animal shelter websites.
This is what they do: “Oregon Humane Society rescues, heals and adopts more than 11,000 pets each year. We never place a time limit on how long cats, dogs and other pets stay at our shelter. OHS relies on donations to support our adoption, education, and animal rescue programs.”
Their adoption goal for 2022 is 10,000 and they have already reached 903 adoptions for this new year. Their animal rescue site has pictures and tons of information on available pets as well as how you can help through volunteering and donating. This is, indeed, a top animal adoption website.

The Oregon Humane Society was founded back in 1868 and are the largest animal welfare organization in the Northwest and the fourth oldest in the United States. There is no limit for the time an animal is kept and all the animals are provided vet care when needed.

The Pixie Project
This top animal adoption website received 4.3 stars of 5 out of 401 votes.
As stated on their site: “The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue. We offer a variety of services to the public including but not limited to: pet adoption services, pet owner education and support and low cost and free spay and neuter and veterinary services for homeless and low-income pet owners.”
They have been helping rescue cats and dogs for plus ten years. All adoptions are now via appointments and applications with Covid restrictions. You can see pictures and much more information on their site. This animal shelter organization is located near the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon.
Cat Adoption Team
This group is located in Sherwood, Oregon and received 4.7 stars of 5 out of 455 votes.
The Cat Adoption Team has been helping rescue felines since 1998. Their story is: “CAT is a limited-admission, adoption guarantee shelter. That means we only take in cats that we have the space and resources for, and that we commit to giving every cat we take in all the time and care they need to find a loving home. We offer enrichment, behavior modification, excellent veterinary care, and a variety of housing options to meet the individual needs of the cats and kittens in our charge.”

Oregon Dog Rescue
This non-profit animal welfare shelter organization received 4.2 stars of 5 out of 345 votes.
They are located in Tualatin, Oregon and have been helping rescue dogs since 2007.
Here is what they say about Oregon Dog Rescue: ” Oregon Dog Rescue is devoted to placing dogs in the best homes and assuring the long-term success of the adoption.” You can view their cute doggos and see more of their adoption process here: Oregon Dog Rescue.org
There are many other organizations but these are the voted as the best animal shelter websites that I found through Google. If you are looking, I hope this information is of assistance to you.
