Our Story

We believe EVERYONE Deserves a Forever Home.

Odd Man Inn was started because of our commitment to a dog named Roswell. Fear-based aggression and a tendency to bite made him extremely difficult to manage. When we ran out of training options, the professional recommendation was euthanasia. Instead of giving up on him, we purchased land for Roswell to get out of city life in Portland and created a safe space for him and other animals who are out of options.

Our residents are often called too bitey, too dirty, too plump, too ugly, too inconvenient, too old, too big, too whatever. We make every effort to rehabilitate animals based on their specific needs and help them become ambassadors for their kind.

From 2016-2021 in Washington State, we successfully rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed hundreds of animals including pigs, sheep, goats, dogs, cats, rats, chickens, geese, ducks, peafowl, rabbits, turtles, llamas, donkeys, pigeons, and cows.

In 2021, we purchased a 93-acre property in Jamestown, TN and accepted the surrender of nearly 160 pigs in need of medical care and extensive restoration of their facilities. We moved our entire operation across the country to help vulnerable animals in need!
