Don’t just take your dog for a walk… Take your walk FOR a dog!

Go to, download the app to your device, choose BMHA as the beneficiary, and support BMHA every time you walk your dog! It's fast and easy to do. Then simply activate the app every time you walk your dog(s). Whether you walk for a block or a mile, every step you take will help rescue animals in Union County! What could be easier?

And don't forget...We've launched our 2019-2020 donation campaign on GoFundMe!

Looking to license your dog? Union County Sheriff's Department has now taken over all dog licensing. ARACEO will no longer be issuing licenses. Please be aware that licensing your dog(s) is required by State law and Union County Ordinance. Thank you!

We do Boarding!

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

The address is EXACTLY the same as if you use 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 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 instead of 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.

Why High-Save? Animal lives matter! All animals deserve a second chance at a great, happy life, and 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 absolutely do not euthenize unless it is the only humane solution as judged by a licensed veterinarian. We love animals and want to try our hardest to save as many as we possibly can!

We advocate, educate, provide animal rescue and adoption services and promote positive animal welfare and care in Union County and the surrounding areas, consisting of 105,000+ people. Since 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 so appreciate of all those who help in our mission! Thank you!
