Caper here, at around 7 months old I am a perfect boy to join your family. I am a California Dwarf and have some mad good social skills. The shelter will neuter and micro chip me before I go home, my adoption cost is $30.00. What a deal for a lovely young man!

Mocha  Mcas weblink
animal # 595207
Greetings Mocha here, at around 2 years old I am a curious and charming young lady looking for a rabbit savvy family or a family willing to learn about rabbits. You may have noticed I came to the shelter with some trauma to my nose but recovering well. Indoor house rabbits make the best pets!

CAP'N TURBO  Mcas weblink 
animal # 592958

They call me Cap'n Turbo, because I am full of energy. I am a lop mix rabbit looking for a new home. I spent some time with the people who found me and they told the shelter that I am almost litter box trained and have an independent nature. I made friends with their cat, but avoided their dogs. Can you blame me? Well seriously rabbits are social animals and we enjoy the company of other rabbits, after proper introductions of course. I am about two years old and will be neutered before I go home. I was found near SW Battaglia and Willow parkway, Gresham and am available 5/10/17

"LITTLE BEAR" and "VIOLET" bonded Poodle mixes


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!



Little Bear mcas weblink (June 27 -Little Bear and Violet have an adopter)
animal # 570331
   
Violet mcas weblink (June 27 -Little Bear and Violet have an adopter)
animal # 563629

Just like birds of a feather, we want to go home together. My name is Violet and I'm about 4 years old and weigh about lbs. Little Bear and I are very close so we need to be adopted as a pair. We lived in a quiet adult home with no kids and would do best going to the same type of situation. I love Little Bear, but not enough to let him eat my food, so we should be fed separately. My person said I am housetrained and like to play ball. We don't really care for all the noise and commotion here at the shelter, so please go slow with us because we need some time and space to show our true personalities.

"MCAS FOSTERS, Donations,Volunteers, Positive SUPPORT Helps the local Animals!

 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.
Your help directly working with the animals and showing positive support for the MCAS shelter is what makes a real difference for these Multnomah County  animals!
There are lots of things you can do to help the MCAS pets: Donate, Help the animals in the Kennels and the cattery, Be a MCAS Foster Home 

- Be a POSITIVE VOICE for the MCAS shelter.
- Advise your friends to get ID tags/microchips with current contact info for their pets! - and keep the contact info current.
- Contact the local animal shelters if you have lost or found an animal (and if you've lost one - check regularly even months after pet is lost the animal can show up in a shelter)
- Feeling proactive?  Check local media sites for posting of lost pets and then check the Lost/Found sites of local shelters. It feels great to find a match for an owner who didn't think to look in the local shelters for their lost pet!
 
Interested in learning about volunteering and fostering at the shelter? Attend one of our volunteer orientations! The next volunteer orientation will be June 28th  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. https://multcopets.org/events

These are the positions we're trying to fill:
Dog Kennel
Morning Potty Walkers
Shelter/Info Desk Greeters
Fosters

Here's the MCAS shelter Volunteer page to find out more

If you want to work with the animals, but you don't want to volunteer in the actual shelter then please consider becoming a MCAS Volunteer Foster Home!

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!

Pretty little Adelaide (recently adopted) came into the shelter extremely underweight. She went into a foster home to get healthy.

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. A big part of the primary mission of Multnomah County Animal Shelter is to reunite lost animals with their people. Here is the link to Multnomah County Animal Services Lost & Found website, which is updated a number of times daily with animal photos and descriptions at intake at MCAS. http://multcopets.org/search-lost-found-reports Please help get the word out in your neighborhood and community to use this site to report a lost or found animal or search for missing animals.  
When a lost animal isn't reunited with it's owner, then the focus is on animal adoption/rescue. No, not are all animals saved. Some are humanely euthanized, due to their more dire medical issues (although these animals often go into a Volunteer Hospice Foster, which is a fabulous program) Some of the animals that come into the shelter are ultimately humanely euthanized due to various aggression issues that make them poor candidates to be placed into a new home, or safely back into the public. You can be proud that the Portland  area has a very high "save rate" - one of the highest in the nation,  thanks to caring staff and volunteers, the local community, and the ASAP coalition.

Unfortunately, some people may dislike the way a shelter is operated, and  publicly/chronically seek to disparage it often using false accusations and a slanted portrayal of the actual facts, which is sad, because this hurts the shelter animalsas potential donators, volunteers, and good adopters might go elsewhere.

 Please do what you can to show your support for the Multnomah County Animal Shelter!

"PRECIOUS" a mini Ridgeback mix?

Precious is a sensitive Velcro dog, and a very beautiful little mix. These photos don't do her justice, her eyes are stunning. She is also very soft to the touch.  Initially, she'll need a somewhat patient owner, but one that won't make her feel more worried (ie, "happy talk" helps) But once she is feeling secure, Precious is outgoing, full of kisses, friendly to strangers and peppy on walks!!

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

animal # 598523

My name is Precious. I am 3 years old and weigh 20 pounds. I am very shy at first before showing you just how lovely I am, so it is very important that my new home take it slow with me and allow me to acclimate in my own time. I have found it stressful here, so my transition could take some time into my new home. I would like a home that is quiet and will show me lots of love. The shelter is recommending that any potential kids in the home be 8 years old and up. Please come down to the shelter to see me today!


 

"CHLOE" chubby freckled Border Collie


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

Mcas weblink  
animal # 596346

Hi, I 'm Chloe a black and white Border Collie mix. I have the cutest freckles on my nose. I'm about 9 years old and weigh 60lbs, so I'm looking for a home that will help me shed a pound or two. I need to be the only dog in the household and am not a dog park candidate as I prefer the company of humans rather than other dogs. I did live peacefully with a cat and livestock, so chickens, pigs, llamas and goats have nothing to fear from me.

 

 
 

"ROSIE" FAVORITE brown eyed lovebug tan/white Pitbull

I can't believe that Rosie hasn't been adopted yet!!! 

Rosie's former foster home enthusiastically mentioned on SDOP Facebook:
"Oh my gosh! She is so loving and smart!!! She had learned to wait before eating and going out the door. She responds to her name came when called. She loves the car. She calms down for lovies with you on the couch. She is a snuggle bug."

animal # 583222
Hello, friends! My name is Rosie. I am quite the big love bug once you get to know me! Although I have come to love my friends here at the shelter, it can be a bit overwhelming here for me, so it is important that my new family take it slow introducing me to new people and places. With some patience and time, I will be able to show you my wonderful personality. I have done well with same-sized dogs, but should not live with any animals smaller than myself. I have spent the last couple months in a foster home, recovering from a bad case of kennel cough and have been medically cleared for adoption! Any children in the home should be over the age of 6 years and sturdy, due to my strength and energy level. I sure can't wait to meet you! I am 6 years old and weigh 54 pounds.
 

 

"LEONARDO" (somewhat special needs) sweet Pitbull


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

mcas weblink
animal # 592305

Hi there! My name is Leonardo and I'm looking for a new home. I am a sensitive guy that can get easily frightened by new things and people. It appears that I haven't had a whole lot of work on the leash and with general handling, so my new adopters will need to help show me that the world isn't so scary. I will need lots of positive interactions in my newly adopted life. Once I feel comfortable though, I am quite the clown. If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 10 years old. I came to the shelter with a pretty severe skin condition that I have been recovering from. It was pretty uncomfortable, but I am on the road to recovery. I was also born with deformed front legs and although they are not causing me any pain now, I may develop arthritis as I age. Please speak with your adoption counselor about my medical needs. If you think we could make a great match, please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 50 pounds.

 Leonardo loved his  massage today - thank you ResQ Animal Massage!

thanks Quimby, love this pic :)

 Leonardo has severely bowed legs and he
 would love to be adopted by someone who will provide him extra TLC as he ages
Maybe you know someone, and can "share" Leonardo?

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 581795

My name is Charlie. Ever heard of a big dog who thinks they are a lap dog? Well, that's me! I just can't get enough of my people. I love to hang out with them and get lots of attention. I would love a home who will keep me active and happy. I've made lots of friends here at the shelter and love nothing more than getting fawned over! I need to go to a home with no other dogs as I have not always gotten along with them, but I have been successful with cats in the past. Come on down to the shelter to get some love! I am 8 years old and weigh 80 pounds

animal # 598821
My name is Scarlet and I’ve never met an activity I didn’t like! If you love exercise and keeping active, then we will be fast friends. I will go for a run in the morning, a hike in the afternoon, play fetch in the evening, and unwind with some play at home before bed – and I would love nothing more than to have someone who can keep up with me. It’s important that I have an outlet for my boundless energy, so let’s get together and explore the outdoors! I am about 1 year old and weigh 48 pounds.

"BILBO" sensitive little Chi boy


Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

mcas weblink  (6/27 has an adopter)
animal # 598497
My name is Bilbo and I'm a sensitive guy that's looking for a quiet, relaxed home. I was very scared when I first arrived here, but am slowly learning to trust and come out of my shell. The shelter is recommending that kids in the home be over the age of 10 years, as I can get nippy when I'm really scared. I have a condition called "cherry eye" that the shelter will fix as part of my adoption. Please ask your adoption counselor about my medical needs. I am about 3 years old and weigh 10 pounds.




"SAWYER" teenage pitmix


Sawyer is receiving training at the shelter, and he had a good lesson in "impulse control" when we were doing his photos today.  Instead of lunging/jumping up, he is learning to sit or lie down to get a reward.

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

mcas weblink  (6/24 potential adopter - check back)
animal # 596340

Hi there! My name is Sawyer and I'm looking for a special home. My new family will need to be willing to invest their time into lots of training with me. I am young, full of energy, and need to get my manners under control. I am great with people I know, but can be quite fearful of unfamiliar people. When I get over excited, I will also grab ahold of my leash. Some people think it's cute, but I haven't learned how to properly use my mouth, which can make walking me quite frustrating. I am a sweet pup that just needs someone to step in and give me the training I need. If you have another canine in the home, we will need to meet before I can go home. I am still learning how to play with other dogs and can be somewhat uncomfortable around dogs that I don't know. If you think you can give me the time and energy that I need, please come and meet me today! If you have kids in the home they will need to be over the age of 15 years old. As part of my adoption you will need to meet with our Canine Specialist to talk about my behavioral needs. Can't wait to meet you! I am about 7 months old and weigh 45 pounds.
