"SCRUFFY" a Benji dog


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink
125681
Hi, I am Scruffy, an active and playful 3 year old Terrier mix. 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, positive and lift me to my potential of being a perfect pup! If there are kids in my new home they should be at least 6 years old.  3 yrs 20 lbs

Scruffy didn't feel like getting photos today. 
 He's way cuter than this!

My name is Muffin and I am really happiest being where my people are. I would love nothing more than the curl up on your lap or trot along with you on walks. If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company through your life, then I am the dog for you! Through thick and thin, I will be by your side. *I am about 5 years old and weigh 5 pounds.

"MOCHA" shy, cute and hopeful - bobbed tail Chi mix

well, it takes time for Mocha to like a new person...
Once he trusts you, he's quite endearing.  If you visit the shelter a number of times, and spend time outside of his kennel and gently engage, he will start to trust you and you'll see what a charming fellow he is :) Not a dog for everyone, but he loves his friends

Mocha here! I'm an independent Chihuahua mix fella searching for a new home. I am very reserved and don't appreciate lots of handling. I'm looking for a home that will let me have my own space and give me time to relax and open up. This home would also need to be adult only as I don't get along well with children. Because I am such an aloof dog, I will likely need to meet with my potential family multiple times before going home. If you've got the space and patience to give me a chance to warm up, come meet me today! 3 yrs, 9 moths,  18 lbs

"JASPER" adorable Long Haired Doxie mix


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
Jasper is in a MCAS Foster Home

Hi, I'm Jasper and I'm in search of a great home! I love to snuggle, go for walks and hang out with my human and doggie pals on the couch. Let's just say I love cats too much so am best suited for a feline free home. I also promise to do my best to keep squirrels out of our
yard! I'm a very good boy but like most of us I prefer to be talked into something versus told what to do. I'm working hard on my potty training and go every time I'm taken outside. I bet someone could bell train me in a snap! My foster mom thinks I'd make an amazing nosework candidate but also says I'll likely never be an off-leash candidate because the world is full of so many amazing scents to track down! If my new family has children, they need to be 12+. Jasper is approx. 2 years old, 14 lbs. To learn more about the sweet boy contact his foster mom at adlindb@hotmail.com

Overly Enthusiastic Dog
I am Anderson, a fun loving and energetic German Shepherd. Dogs like me love to get out and play but are not always sure what to do with our mouths. I can tend to get so excited I jump for the first thing I see, and the game is on! My ideal family will be active, patient and use positive training methods to help me become a more refined pup. I think working with a trainer would be a fun way for us to bond and learn together. I am eager to learn and can't wait to show you how smart I am! Any potential kids in my home will need to be over the age of 10 years old. I am ready to go home, so come down to the shelter and meet me today!  2 yrs, 83 lbs

"MCAS" - WED NOV 22 - orientation Volunteer, Foster, Donate, YOU can Help the Shelter Animals!


Interested in learning about volunteering and fostering at the shelter? Attend one of our volunteer orientations! The next volunteer orientation will be Nov 22, 2017, 7-8pm (the 4th Wed of each month) ( there is no December Vol Orientation) There's no need to register - simply show up at the appointed time. You'll learn about all the different jobs available and what is required. In the meantime, you can visit our Volunteer web page for more info!!

If you can't Volunteer, please consider helping in other ways? Donating - towards a New Shelter facility as it is old and  crowded, and is by far the Underdog of our local Portland Shelter facilities. There is quite a disparity, and this certainly doesn't help the Mcas animals.
You can also donate towards Medical Care - to help provide added support for the more difficult medical cases. Any and all positive support for MCAS helps your Portland homeless Shelter Animals enormously! Thank you for caring.
 
The MCAS shelter is the only open intake animal shelter in Multnomah County, and it does more than most other shelters in this country to save as many of the unclaimed stray animals that come into the shelter as they can.
Want to help your local county homeless animals? You can fulfill that need, AND make a real difference for our animals at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 ================================================================

Fostering is one of the many ways you can help the MCAS animals - Foster homes are so appreciated, and it is rewarding knowing that you are making a real difference in the life of a homeless pet.
Please Check this link for more information if interested in becoming an Mcas Foster home!

"STEWIE" the cutest little Staffie Bull terrier mix

I wish this little guy would find a good home soon....!!!
Stewie has been in the shelter for over 10 months.

Please make a point to visit Stewie when you're there? He has some adoption restrictions  in Multnomah County, (long story) but he's a great dog and will be a fun companion. He's been there so long, and it's really hard on him to not be in a home.

MCAS Volunteers love Stewie!

"Volunteer here- I have walked Stewie many different times. He is so sweet, and not the least bit intimidating. He's so eager to please and LOVES going on walks. He's great on leash. He sits quietly while waiting to be let out of his kennel. He's so young and deserves the perfect home that will keep him safe and pile him with love".

"STEWIE!!!! On of the best things about volunteering at the shelter is getting to see these dogs grow and blossom. Stewie is a GEM! I would argue, the smartest dog there. We regularly use him in playgroups to help assess other pups play style. He's non-reactive and and super funny. He has a bit of a rough play style, but still appropriate. When the evacuation was looming at the shelter, we immediately offered to take him. He would do GREAT with our dog and I had no worries about him. He will live a full and amazingly great life, especially with continued positive/reward based training. I'll miss him SO much when he finds his forever home"

"Volunteer here - I walk Stewie two to three times a week and he is so fun to walk! He walks really good on a leash and is always ready for an adventure! He is such a sweet and friendly dog. I love this guy!!

My name is Ocho and my favorite hobby is exploring! I am a curious, smart dog and I love to learn new things about the world around me. I would love to have a job to do or learn some new tricks to give my mind something to work on. I do not shy away from novel situations and if you can keep me mentally and physically stimulated, I will be your loving friend forever. If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 15 years, as I do not like to share food. I am about 9 years old and weigh a thin 55 pounds.
