Meet Indigo Rescue (short video)
We provide specialized, life-saving intervention for animals with unique characteristics and needs that render them unadoptable by shelter standards. We do this by:
- Working with area shelters, rescue organizations and community members to identify animals in need.
- Recruiting, training and providing on-going support to foster families.
- Providing specialized medical and behavioral intervention where needed.
- Working carefully to ensure ideal permanent placements.
- Providing follow-up support to adopters.
- Promoting spay/neuter programs and responsible pet ownership.
- Assisting and coaching people in search and rescue efforts for lost pets.
Our mantra: “Never, never, never give up.”

Visit Our New Sponsor! Page
We created a page to showcase the dogs and cats in our care with special medical needs. Of course, our hope is to take care of them and go on to find those special, kind-hearted homes to adopt them, but without an adoptive home, they become our “hospice” pets. They will stay with us until they pass away from whatever age-related health complications they may have.
Visit our Sponsor! page to meet these great kiddos and find out how to make a donation to help them. You can help us to support them and make staggering differences in their lives. Take a look at Patchouli before and after the care she received to recover from malnutrition and mange (not to mention having a litter of puppies).

Homestyle Boarding in the Country
To provide continued funding for our rescue work, Indigo Rescue created a beautiful homestyle dog boarding ranch in the country in Vernonia, Oregon, called Oregon Canine University at Indigo Ranch (aka Indigo Ranch). Situated on 16 acres of beautiful countryside on the Nehalem River, Indigo Ranch is a dog’s dream vacation location. 100% of the profits from our homestyle boarding services provided at Indigo Ranch go directly into our non-profit rescue organization to fund and expand on our rescue and spay/neuter efforts.

Imann (aka Nonnie)
We’ve had Imann since she was eight weeks old. This sweet little German Shepherd puppy was starving to death and needed to have emergency heart surgery for a condition called a “Persistent Right Aortic Arch”. Imann barely survived surgery and then developed a unique variety of a mega esophagus. After nearly one year, we finally discovered that feeding her without vomiting requires her eating her meals liquified (we call it a “meat shake”), divided into one cup increments, and fed to her 15-20 minutes apart. In October, 2012, Imann, a pure German Shepherd, was 15 months old and weighed in at 26lbs. Approximately one third of the weight of an average adult female German Shepherd. The good news is that she is still growing, and the longer she goes between vomiting sessions, the bigger she will hopefully get. Maybe she’ll only be 25-30lbs for her entire life, but we can live with that — as long as she’s happy!
