Feb 13 2020, 2:49 pm

Are your weekends a little lonely? Could you be in the position to change the life of a furry creature forever? Or, are you looking to add another member of your family during the time of year where love is being widely celebrated?

It takes a lot to love and care for a canine companion, but it can be one of the most rewarding relationships for any human.

Within the city of Portland, many shelters and organizations have devoted their days (and nights) to the recovery and re-homing of the cities animals. We truly owe a lot to the Oregon Humane Society, The Pixie Project, Oregon Dog Rescue, and so many more.

Here are some sweet, lovable pups that are seeking a new home.
