Find some quick answers about The Asher House and our mission, organization and our four-legged friends.

We are currently at capacity until we complete the expansion to our larger property. But the following website is a wonderful resource to find a rescue that may be able to help:

https://www.petfinder.com/animal-shelters-and-rescues/search/ This listing is rather comprehensive, and includes great foster-based rescue organizations, many of which offer transportation to pick up your pet if they are not in your immediate area. 

As an alternative to surrendering to a rescue, we recommend the "home to home" option where you accept applications from that site. If you do this, then you are the one screening applicants to find the perfect home. This is safer than FB and Craigslist, where this is a risk of dog fighting rings. 


As a sanctuary, many of the dogs we rescue will live out their lives with Lee and the pack. But we do make available the highly adoptable dogs that would thrive with kids and a family, or if it is determined that the pup would do better in a different environment; for example, as the only pet in the home. 

We currently have some pups available through our partner rescue: https://www.familydogsnewlife.org 

You may also want to check out these sites to find his next pet. You can put in your preferred size, breed, gender and zip code and a list of available pups will be displayed. You can also sign up for “alerts” so that you are immediately notified when a dog that fits your description becomes available on that site.  The last “home to home” site is for private adoptions from individuals looking to rehome their dogs without necessarily using a rescue organization.  

We do get asked this quite frequently, and we don't have an official "business plan" to share. Our organization came to be rather organically, but we can share the backstory of how we got here.  Lee does a few videos on Facebook that illustrate the history of The Asher House. They are categorizes together, and one is called "I want your life:" https://fb.watch/83AXD7e9px/, and another is called “How we started the Sanctuary:" https://www.facebook.com/TheAsherHouse/videos/3289423571293100  

 Basically, after traveling the country to promote dog adoption and meeting with various shelters and rescues, Lee applied for his 501c3 nonprofit, which was approved in late 2020. Because of his large social media platform, the nonprofit received a lot of exposure, and for this Lee is very grateful. After his pit bull Stella passed away, he needed a break from being on the road and wanted to fulfill his lifelong dream of planting roots and founding a sanctuary. He was able to find a large parcel of property in Oregon and it was a perfect place to make his vision a reality.  

 Once in Oregon, Lee continued to focus on saving animals and partnering with other shelters and rescues. We have now expanded to other animals like llamas, horses, pigs, goats, alpacas and even cows. He works hard to physically care for the animals and to manage the non-profit, he but does have a small team to assist. The nonprofit relies on donations, all of which go toward the care of the animals, but Lee purchased the land with his own personal income. People often wonder how he sustains himself financially, and it is primarily through paid sponsorships and his CBD oil. Here is a video that explains that in a little more depth: https://youtu.be/F_a-TsLabbA 

 Best Friends Animal Society has a wonderful article that we have shared with many people: https://resources.bestfriends.org/article/how-start-animal-sanctuary  Pet Finder also has some great resources on how to start a rescue, shelter or other similar nonprofit: https://www.petfinder.com/animal-shelters-and-rescues/starting-a-pet-adoption-organization/  And if you can, we suggest that you contact a sanctuary or rescue organization near your home and ask if you can volunteer.  This will give you a behind the scenes look at what happens daily, the costs involved, the workforce you may need, how fostering works, etc.
