To provide continued funding for our rescue work, Indigo Rescue created a beautiful homestyle dog boarding ranch in the country in Vernonia, Oregon, called OCU (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.

GIFT CARDS (scrip)
Help raise money for Indigo Rescue while shopping at your favorite stores or dining at your favorite restaurants!
Ordering gift cards through Indigo Rescue is a great way to help us raise money without spending any extra money!
What is our gift card program? Scrip is regular gift cards, but when you buy them from us, the vendors donate a percentage of the gift card value to Indigo Rescue. It does not cost you extra because you purchase your scrip gift cards dollar for dollar and spend them just like cash!
Some of our rescues take a long, long time to rehabilitate and eventually find a home.
The ongoing costs of taking care of these long term dogs and cats can be a real hardship for us, but we will never, never, never give up our commitment to their success.
If you can help us by sponsoring one of these rescues, you can make a big difference.It’s easy, and so important. Just go to our Paypal link under Donate and indicate which animal you’d like to sponsor when you set up your monthly contribution.
Here are some examples of our long term rescues you could sponsor.
Zero and Uno
Zero and Uno are blind Catahoula brothers who were found running stray together in Rainier, in 2008. They were about one year old. Zero doesn’t have any eyes and Uno has one eye that doesn’t work very well (hence their names). Zero and Uno depend on each other and even when other dogs are around, will still play together as if they are the only two dogs! When they play, you can hardly tell they have any disability at all. They stand up and wrestle with one another and sometimes Zero will grab a hold of Uno’s tail and run along behind him while gently holding on to his tail. Something like how elephants hold on to each other’s tails with their trunks!
They’re very happy boys.
Watch them playing together. (YouTube video)
Imann (aka Nonnie)
We’ve had Imann since she was eight weeks old. She needed to have emergency open 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”), and divided into one cup increments, then 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, and we’ll live with that — as long as she’s happy!
Will you consider a $10 monthly donation to help us continue our work?
Hello everyone, I am writing today to ask for your support. As we all know, our economy is hurting. It seems there is no one who has not been affected adversely somehow by our country’s financial woes. Indigo Rescue is no exception. Donations are way down. Adoptions are slow. Foster homes are harder and harder to find, but the county shelters continue to call and ask us for our help in taking dogs. We have partnerships with three county shelters and we really want to help them save lives! Remember, our commitment is to take dogs when they are injured (because the counties don’t have funding to pay for their vet care), sick, terrified, or just over capacity. In short, while we continue to grow our business at the ranch and save as many shelter animals as possible, we are worrying about running out of funds to continue to do our work.
Now comes the hard part. I wish, more than any of you could possibly imagine, that we could do our work without asking for money, but that just isn’t possible so I’d like you to consider whether you might be able to make a $10 monthly contribution to Indigo Rescue via Paypal. Once per month, you would be charged just $10 to your account. Over an entire year, that would be a fully tax deductible $120. Please think about it. If even 50 people could make this commitment, it would bring us $6000 of annual income we desperately need. Ask your animal loving friends if they can help us by making the same donation. Please feel free to post on Facebook or Twitter, or anywhere else you think it might get us the support we need. If you think you can spare $10 per month to help us continue doing our much needed rescue work, please sign up for a monthly contribution today. It would mean the world to us, and will definitely mean the difference in how much we can do to help animals.

Did you know that cats are still euthanized everywhere in the country at a rate much higher than dogs? There are still too many intact cats and too many people who don’t have their cats spayed or neutered. So, in honor of the annual Spay Day USA event, Indigo Rescue, in collaboration with several local animal welfare organizations participates in the annual Tom and Mom Cat Special. From Valentine’s Day through St Patrick’s Day every year, participating veterinarians spay or neuter cats of low income households at a super low rate of only $10! Our animal welfare organizations coordinate the entire event and fundraise to subsidize the cost of the spays. This is a HUGE opportunity to reduce the tragic cat overpopulation problem.
Please consider a tax deductible donation to the Tom and Mom Cat Special and earn more about this much needed event at: www.spayoregon.org
