"EMMA" black Lab HAPPY ADOPTION UPDATE!

EMMA Happy Adoption Update!   Mar 2020

" I was just going through Emma's file and came across your business card. Emma is doing amazing. She is still full of energy, but that's what we love about her. She is also one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. She and Lily, are truly sisters and adore one another. We recently got another corgi. She and Emma have had some boundary issues, but mostly get along. I am so happy that I found her at the shelter. She needed love, patience, room to run and puppy friends."  Melanie S

Hi new potential family! My name is Emma, a 8 month old Black Lab. I am an energetic lady looking for an energetic family that can keep up with me! Do you like to hike? Great! I would make an excellent hiking partner. Do you like to run? Even better! I would make an excellent running buddy! I also REALLY like to fetch, and will fetch anything from squeaky toys to tennis balls. Did I mention I have a lot of energy!? My ideal family will continue my positive rewards based training, and understand that I will NOT be a couch potato. Sure, I'd love to Netflix and chill once I am tired, but I am also a young pup, and will get into mischief when I get bored. You know what they say, a tired dog is a happy dog! I am a bit jumpy, so any smaller children under the age of 5 should come meet me before going home with me to make sure they can handle my energy level, and any canine pals should come in to meet me as well!  8 mths, 50 lbs and growing.

I am Bailey, a nice little gentleman. I like playing tug, but don't be alarmed if I get talky and play growl, it's just my way of telling you I'm having a good time. I also like playing fetch and will drop the toy by you, push it towards you with my nose and bark to let you know I'm ready for you to throw it again. I'm so irresistible, that I will keep you busy playing and make you laugh with my antics. I will need regular grooming and ear care to be my very best.

I am Hank, an active and playful Labrador. You could call me the hands-on type but since I do not have hands I learn with my mouth. To an exuberant dog like me everything is a game, sometimes I just get so excited I will jump up and grab the first thing that looks like a toy. I am up for anything and ready to amaze my new family with my skills. I am looking for a family who does not take life too seriously that will be patient and positive. The shelter is recommending that any kids in the home be over the age of 8 years due to my mouthy behaviors. I am also a big conversationalist and may not be best for apartment life. Please come and meet me today!

Ava, 4 years Face Licking Coordinator at Multnomah County Animal Services Zumba enthusiast, weekend adventurer, and cuddle bug extraordinaire. I prefer organic foods due to my sensitive skin. Kombucha, kale salads, free range grass fed organic beef, you name it. I'll eat it. I love the occasional butt scratch, but only when we really get to know each other. No other animals for this lady, she is too independent to want other animals around besides her humans.

My name is Gigi! I am a zoomie, ready-to-go lady who would love to be your new running partner! My new family should be very active and allow me to the time and space for my physical needs. Sitting on the couch all day just won't cut it for me! My shelter friends have seen seen me play with toys, meet new people, and receive lots of love. Although I can be a bit anxious when in new environments, with owners who will be patient and help me, I can relax and feel safe. I will do best with kids over 5 years old, and should be an only pet.

I am Lexi, an active and playful German Shepherd. Once I get to know you, I like pets and if you're not giving me enough, I will nuzzle your hands for more and sometimes I just get so excited I will jump up. I know how to sit, shake, and down. My favorite thing is a tough squeaky toy or tennis ball. In fact, I like it so much that I might not want to share it with anyone. The shelter recommends teaching me to trade for a really good treat or better yet another toy. I am sensitive about having my collar touched so adopters should avoid grabbing my collar. If there are kids in my new home, the shelter is recommending that they be at least 8 years old due to some handling sensitivity and mild resource guarding.

My name is Artemis and I'm looking for a special home that can provide me with stability and confidence building. I was a very scared boy when I came to the shelter and was scared of even being touched. The great staff here have been working incredibly hard to get me comfortable with handling and now I am blossoming into the goofball they all knew was hiding deep inside me. My new family will need to continue using positive reinforcement training to build my confidence and help me become the greatest boy that I can be. I think working with a professional trainer would help build my bond with you and be super fun as well. The shelter is recommending that any kids in the home be over the age of 12 years and I will need to be the only dog in your home. If you're up for a fun project dog, come and meet me today! I am in a quieter area of the shelter, so please ask to meet

Carson, male mix In Foster Home, 2 yrs 4 mths, 52 lbs

Hello Everyone!
I'm a brown haired, brown eyed 2yr old American Shelter dog named Carson. All I want is to sniff new things and play with new toys, new dogs, be with my people. But I could use some help to get to know the world. It's a big mysterious place for me out there. Once you get to know me I'm a playful snuggler with a curly tail. I'm using positive training methods to learn that new creatures aren't as scary as they seem. All my teachers and friends say that I'm doing GREAT in training! I want to go to a home where I can have an active life and keep up with my training. I could live with another dog but you'll need to talk to my foster family first. I would need a home with kids over the age of 8 years please. I prefer a home that is predictable. It is also unlikely that I would do well with cats. 
 If you are interested in meeting me, please contact the foster department at foster@multco.us to set up a time!

"CARLA" a cruisin hamster

Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Adoption information  
MCAS hours/ Location

Carla, female hamster
 here's my Mcas weblink
205270
Carla is an adult female hamster who's quite set in her ways. She prefers to cruise around in her ball over being handled. Because she is not used to being held, children in Ms. Hamstortelli's home need to be over 12years old. When left to her own devices, Carla will keep herself entertained. We recommend a larger cage set up where you can watch her be cute yet sassy as you make friends with her. Adoption does not include current cage.

Snuggling is my middle name, I enjoy short walks on the beach (or from the couch to the fridge) and would make a great Netflix buddy. What's that you say? You've been meaning to watch the new Netflix release? Well I'm right there with you! I have some medical needs that an adoption counselor can discuss with you further. Swipe Right! I will need to be the only animal in the home and no small children please.

Princess is located in the kennel to your right as you enter the adoption area - a location that tends to get overlooked by shelter visitors, so make sure to ask to see her!

Hi Pippi here! A fun and energetic girl that loves booty rubs, my toys, and walks! I also love to give kisses! It would definitely be beneficial to me to get into some training classes to become a more refined pup, because I do pull on leash a little and jump up when I am excited. If you are an active home that is searching for a buddy, search no further! The shelter is recommending I go home with kids 5 and up due to how jumpy I am, but it is not required! I do need to be the only dog in the home.

Hadley is a shy, adult rabbit who appears to be quite comfortable with people. Being consistently gentle with this big girl has paid off and she is very calm when held securely.
