Hazel's House started in October 2017, when a family member asked us to help with a litter of kittens found in a barn. After socializing and adopting them out to our friends, we absolutely fell in love with rescuing. We began fostering and mentoring with Newberg Animal Shelter in the spring of 2018. We learned how to run a foster/outreach program, as well as a shelter/rescue; we also learned all about shelter/rescue medicine. In the spring of 2020, we decided we were finally ready to expand and dedicate our time fully to Hazel's House Rescue. We spent the next 6 months filing for our non-profit, starting our foster program and expanding our supporters. As of September of 2020, we became a 501(c)(3) non-profit and have helped over 1500 cats and kittens to date. We continue to grow and expect 2023 to be our best year yet. As of September of 2021, Hazel's House Rescue was happy to announce we have expanded to rescuing/helping with dogs in addition to cats.Since then we have rescued cats, dogs, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles and even a bird! We remain primarily a cat rescue but if we have the capacity to help we will!


I (Brittany) run our foster-based rescue while working a full-time job, in the recycling industry for the last 8 years. I have a passion for animals, helping people and our community. Hazel's House Rescue has a 5 team board! We are comprised of myself, an animal control officers, an volunteer, an veterinarian, and a past adopter. We are all passionate about animal welfare! As a team, we believe in our motto (#Whatsonemore) and our mission is to help animals within our community by sheltering, adoptions, spay/neuter, education and community outreach!



Our rescue is foster, volunteer and donation based. We hold both a Oregon non profit as well as a federal non profit. We have a small office in Newberg, Oregon that is used for intakes and adoptions!
