"LINCOLN" big goofy Golden Retriever/chow mix

Lincoln looks and acts very much like a (sometimes a little mouthy) lovable happy Golden Retriever mix. His fur is soft and silky, and will need regular brushing.

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

Hi! My name is Lincoln. A big boy with a lot of love to give! I am in need of some help to get these extra pounds off, but with some very long walks and a proper diet, I am sure to get back into the best shape of my life! I enjoy the company of my owners, and would love to lay down next to you for some wonderful back rubs. I would do best in a home without small animals or cats. Due to some of my handling sensitivities, it is best that I go to a home with kids over 10. I am 6 years old and weigh 96 pounds.
thanks Quimby for my happy pic!

animal id # 579098

My foster family calls me Jumping Jaxx and I am shy with strangers, but warm up quickly when I feel safe. I am happy to be with kids who like to play and other dogs are fine with me too. I have lots of energy despite my age. I love laps and warm places to curl up. I do tricks too, like sit, sit pretty and bow! I do have a heart murmur so I'll need a good relationship with my vet. I'd love to be your forever pet. I'm a 10 lb chihuahua, around 8 years old. Please ask my foster parent about me today at:  <>

"MR T." Boxer/pitbull mix with the silly underbite

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 579387

Hi! My name is Mr. T. And I will definitely pity the fool who misses out on adopting me! I am a Boxer/Pit mix who is 10 years old and weighs 48 pounds. Even though I am a bit older, I still have tons of life and energy left, and could really benefit from lots of time to play fetch or go on long walks and hikes. I can be a bit shy with people at first, but once I get settled and feel safe, I am a really big goofball. Sometimes I even think I am a lap dog and will try to sit on your lap-so fair warning! Due to recent history we have required that Mr. T go to a home with kids over 10

"Fosters always needed " MCAS Volunteer Foster Homes

PS _  DOG fosters are always much needed too. Fostering provides many needs - from medical recovery, hospice care, and especially needed -  as a calming place for the dogs who are frightened or overly stressed by the shelter environment

Aug 24, 2016  Wildcard, a fun, and sociable Foster kitten now available for adoption. Wildcard had a broken leg, when she came in as a stray kitten because of the Mcas foster program, and vet care she had a chance to heal.

Hey There! My name is Wildcard. Let me tell you a little about myself so you might know why. I came in with a broken leg, and the Doc said it could heal on it's own with proper rest and limited activity. Well, that didn't happen as I'm not too familiar with limited activity, so they put a pin in my leg to help the break heal, and I went into a foster home. It's great here! I have lots of other cats and a couple of dogs to party with. When someone works in the sink or is taking a shower, I'm right there. I like to climb the shower curtain, or sit between the plastic liner and the curtain while the water runs. My picture makes me look a little mischievious, doesn't it? Well it's true I'm a very busy girl, what with chasing after anything and doing the smackdown with my roommates. But when it's quiet time, you can find me wrapped across your neck and making muffins on your shoulder. I love people and sometimes try to jump onto your shoulder as you walk by. I will need a home with another cat or dog to keep me busy while you are at work, or sometimes while you're home because I am a cat of action. If I sound like the busy friend you are looking for, please contact my foster at and let's make arrangements to get together, okay?

June 28 - excerpt from the MCAS Facebook page:
"Kitten Tamers wanted!! We currently have multiple litters and single kittens who are just a little TLC away from being adoptable. Can you open your heart and home to a scared, or even feral, kitten for a few weeks in order to help him/her grow into a loving companion pet? If so, please contact our Foster Coordinator to find out how you can help: These babies need to be socialized early, so every minute counts. Please share!"
 (7/16) here's Button (ADOPTED!), a young kitten in foster with an Mcas staff member ,
This little cutie came into the shelter very sick. Button was given a chance,
 because there was a foster home available to care for her.

There are lots of ways to help out animals who need fostering, and one of the needs especially this time of year is for Fostering Bottle Babies!  Here is an excerpt from the MCAS website

"Bottle babies - We receive a lot of kittens (and very rarely puppies) who are too little to eat on their own and need to be bottle-fed.  This is time consuming, but very rewarding work!"
  To learn more about the foster program, please read the info given on the MCAS Foster Website!
Sadie May 27 - just over 4 weeks old now's lunchtime and Sadie is Hungry!!!
Sadie needs love, stimulation and lots of time during the day.
 She was found in a dumpster. Fortunately for Sadie, she is now thriving in foster care, thanks to the  kind people who found her, and the MCAS Bottle Baby Program
May 16 about 3 weeks old -  Here's little Sadie, now adopted! She was one of the kittens saved by the MCAS Bottle Baby Foster Program

"BELLA" awesome and athletic pitbull LOVES fetch

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink (8/25 Please Note - her Mcas weblink isn't working, but Bella should be available!) 
animal id # 580312

Hi there, my name is Bella. I'm a fun 3 year old spayed Pitbull mix. I'll be easy to exercise because I absolutely adore fetching tennis balls. If there was a olympic competition for fetching them, I'd be a shoe in for the gold medal. I'm just sorry that I can only fit one in my mouth at a time. If you want a fun atheletic dog come check me out. The shelter says there should be no cats in my new home because I am too focused on them.

Thanks Quimby for Bella's cute composite pic!

"HEIDI" - UPDATE - cool talkative German Shepherd mix

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 580212

Hi! I'm Heidi. I am a 4-year old Shepherd mix and I weigh 87 pounds. I can tell you right now, I LOVE TOYS! I can't say this enough, and my new family should be ready to use toys as a great reinforcer of good behavior. I can be a bit mouthy and physical when I play, so it is important to know if any kids are around. I have been tolerant of other dogs, but I can be a bit bossy and like things to go the way I want them, so introductions should be done slow. I really enjoy a good butt rub, and hey, did I mention I really like toys?!? Come on down and take a look at me. I promise you will love me! Heidi is in a quieter area of the kennel - please ask to see this sweetie!

Hi, my name is Evy - that's short for Evelyn. I am calm and very loving when I get to know you. I would love to go on walks with a new owner and to play fetch and have my rear end scratched. I am housetrained, crate trained and know sit & down. Kids weren't part of my life either so I snap to tell them to stay away because they are scaring me. The shelter is requiring an adult only home without any other pets. If you want to meet, please call (503) 936-8571 to make an appointment with Lora G
