Adoption Information

We rescue mini, standard and giant schnauzers who need homes.
Miniature Schnauzer Rescue We operate our rescue off of a wait list and as dogs come into our rescue program, they are matched with appropriate adopters on our wait list.

As we go through our wait list and cannot make a successful match, we will then place the dog on our website's Home page (in the columns underneath the slideshow of dogs who have been adopted). These dogs are often harder to place due to their age or behavioral/medical issues.

Placing our dogs in their forever homes is truly what rescue is all about and our favorite adopters are those that will open their hearts and homes to these special dogs that need a little extra care.

Looking for a puppy? The average age of our rescues is 3 years and older. For puppies, please contact Portland Miniature Schnauzer Club for a reputable breeder.

Getting on Our Wait List

We are happy that you are considering bringing a pet into your home. A pet can give years of happiness to its family.

After you have carefully considered whether a miniature schnauzer is the right choice for you, please complete our Adoption Application. You will then be placed on our wait list to adopt a mini, standard or giant schnauzer.
