Art Invitational Is Here!

We are eager to receive paintings & drawings of the beloved dogs and horses whose forever home is Hoagie’s House.  We plan to use the donated artwork to produce calendars, note cards and other items, with 100% of profits going towards the care of the animals.

Browse the site and our Facebook page for pictures of our senior dogs and horses and create your own work of art depicting one of our residents.

When your art is ready, please mail it, the Artwork Release and Waiver, along with information on the artist (name, age, hometown), to:

Hoagie’s House Art Invitational

Coming Soon: Art Contest!

There are a few new pictures on our webpage. Browse through and meet some of our newer residents. We will have more bios coming soon, too.

If you are a budding artist, we will be inviting you to capture the charm and personality of one of our dogs or horses (or caregivers). Some will be chosen for the next Hoagie’s House Calendar. Notecards and other fun items will be available as well. It’s a fun way for you to support our animals, as 100% of any proceeds from items will go directly to caring for the animals.

We’ll be announcing our Art Invitational details in the near future. Follow us so you don’t miss out!



Oscar came to us from Clackamas County Shelter where he’d been for six months after being surrendered by his owners. He’s an almost eight year old boy and he is full of energy! So far he’s decided Finn is his best friend (next to Tracey) and he loves the farm. We’re working on “Don’t chase the chickens”…

It’s Official!


We are officially a 501(c)3 non-profit. The confirmation letter arrived from the IRS. This means any donation made to us is tax deductible. It also means we are eligible to begin applying for the many grants out there that are available to places like ours. Please visit our Support Us page on this site, to find a “make a donation” link. It will take you to the secure PayPal site.
We thank you all in advance for anything you can give. Every little bit helps us provide feed, medication and vet care for these animals and will allow us to take more in. We as individuals are only able to do so much, but all of us together can help provide a quality life for those animals who stand no chance of being adopted out of shelters. Seniors.
