We do Boarding!
Bet you didn't know that! The cost for boarding your animal is $19.00 per day. We have kennel runs for the dogs and they are kept separate from the other animals for adoption. We think our
boarding service is very competitive, and we're hoping you agree. So next time you will be out of town and need to board your dog, why not board him or her with us?
Have you heard of smile.amazon.com?
The smile.amazon.com address is EXACTLY the same as amazon.com---but if you use smile.amazon.com instead, then a portion of your purchase cost is donated to the charity of your choice, whichever
one you choose. And if you choose BMHA as the beneficiary, you can use this to donate to BMHA without doing anything other than shopping on amazon.com just as you always would. Same prices, same
functionality---but BMHA benefits. What a great way to donate to BMHA! Just be sure to use smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com as the web address.
ARACEO: Animal Rescue and Adoption Center of Eastern Oregon
"...Because animal lives matter"
Our Mission: We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit facility committed to providing a safe, humane, HIGH-SAVE environment to allow all animals to find their forever home.
We are a HIGH-SAVE facility, meaning that no animal is euthanized except if behaviorally or medically unrecoverable. Because animal lives matter.
Why High-Save? Two reasons. First, because Oregon state law now requires euthanization to be performed by a licensed veterinarian, and since the veterinary oath forbids veterinarians from euthanizing
otherwise healthy animals, gone are the days where an animal would come into a shelter in the morning and be euthanized by that afternoon. Second, and more important, because animal lives matter,
because all animals deserve a second chance at a great, happy life, because animals also deserve to live free of pain, discomfort, and despair.
We do NOT euthanize except in the most dire of circumstances. That HIGH-SAVE mantra includes breeds that have traditionally been viewed as "difficult" or "violent." WE DO NOT EUTHANIZE unless it is
the only humane solution, as judged by a licensed veterinarian. PERIOD. Despite some rumors you may have heard to the contrary.
We advocate, educate, provide animal rescue and adoption services, rabies clinics, dog licensing services, and promote positive animal welfare and care in Union County and the surrounding areas,
consisting of 105,000+ people. Because we are a HIGH-SAVE facility, we are able to partner with numerous organizations such as the Oregon Humane
Society, SpokAnimal, The Pixie Project, and others in Oregon, Washington, and
Idaho. It's a huge undertaking, and we can't do it alone. Needless to say, we are HUGELY appreciative of all those who help in our mission.
