"PIPPA" calm chubby Pitbull


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584678

My name is Pippa. A beautiful, loving girl with a more reserved and sensitive personality. I can be shy with new people at first. If you are patient and calm with me, I can brighten up and enjoy lots of affection. I'd love a home to keep me active and help me shed some of the extra weight. I walk nicely on leash, take treats softly, and I know sit and shake-with both paws!! I would prefer a home that has kids 6 years and older. Come find me at the shelter-I may just be the companion you've been looking for! I am around 8 years old and weigh 75 pounds.

Yogi here! I'm a goofy male Pitbull pup on the search for my new home. As an active fella, I would love to go to a home able to handle my energy and work with me using reward-based training to instill solid manners and help curb my puppy wildness! As you can see by my lip, I have had a bad experience with another dog in the past and I might need lots of training and socialization to help me overcome that fear. Right now, I would do best as the only dog in my home. Think we could be a match? Come say hi! I'm about 6 months old and weigh 34 lbs.




"BRUNO" nice young Doberman

Hi I'm Bruno - a male Doberman Pinscher pup looking for a new home! I'm sweet and goofy and lots of fun. Like most young dogs, I would do best to have some reward-based training done to help instill manners and social skills as I am just learning out to interact with other dogs appropriately. I am very active and looking for a new home able to keep up with me! However, I haven't always done well with kids in the past and would need to go home with kids 8 years or older. I'm about 6 months old and weigh 38 lbs.



 

"KYRAH" pretty sensitive active med sz Akita mix

 
Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
animal # 583778
Mcas weblink

Hi there! My name is Kyrah and I'm looking for a special home. I am a very sensitive girl that can be easily startled of new people and new environments. So, my defense is to alarm bark when I'm scared. Apartment life may not be best suited for me. My previous owner had wonderful things to say about me though. I have lived with both cats and dogs and we got along well. I enjoy playing fetch, love toys, and am a loyal guardian. I am asking for a home that has previous history with the Akita breed or do your research on what breed traits we have to see if I may be a good match. If you think we could make a great match, please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 43 pounds.

"GLORIANA" cool Bulldog mix!

 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584333

Hi there! My name is Gloriana and I'm looking for a new family to love. I have been very shy here, but once I'm out of my kennel, boy do I light up! I am everything you could ask a Bulldog to be. Wiggly, bouncy, playful, sloppy kisser! I am looking for a home that can give me proper exercise and a loving heart. I'm not a fan of sharing my food though, so kids in the home are recommended to be over the age of 10 years. If you think we could make a fantastic team, come and meet me today! I am about 3 years old and weigh 60 pounds.

 



"STEVEN" cutie pitmix

 
Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink
animal id # 584394

Hey there! My name is Steven and I'm a sensitive boy that's looking for an active, yet relaxed home. I am a very sweet, playful boy once I feel comfortable. I probably haven't been exposed to a lot of new things in my life and get easily startled by loud noise, sudden movements, and new places. I need a family that will show me that the world isn't such a scary place. I am very treat and toy motivated, so that should make training fun and easy! I already know how to sit, shake, and down! Isn't that fantastic? It is recommended that children in the home be at least 8 years old due to my fearful nature. I will make a great companion and can't wait to find my new family! Please come and meet me today! I am about 2 years old and weigh pounds.



 



"TINKER" and "TATER" bonded Chi mix pair


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!
Tinker and Tater are in a MCAS Foster home
 
Tinker here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584025

Tinker here! I am a 10 year old sweetie pie. I only weigh about four and a half pounds. I came to the shelter with my friend Tater and we are very bonded. We would love if we could stay together I love to sleep under the covers in your bed and be carried around. I am a wonderful lap companion. I recently had a surgery to have both of my eyes removed as they were causing me a lot of pain when I came to the shelter. I have recovered in a foster home and we are ready now! We are both housetrained and make great house guests. We would love a quieter home where we can feel safe. We think cats are a little too fun and would do best in a home without them. I really like other dogs but Tater does not so we would prefer to be your only canine friends. If you think that we might be a good fit for your home, please ask about us today. We are in a foster home . If you are interested in meeting us, please email the foster coordinator at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us to set up a time.



Tater here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584024

Tater here! I am a 6 year old wonderful guy that only weighs five and a half pounds. I came to the shelter with my friend Tinker and we are very bonded. We would love if we could stay together. I am a frisky guy and loves to play. I take a little while to warm up with new people but if you are patient with me, I promise I will sneak up for some love. We are both housetrained and make great house guests. We would love a quieter home where we can feel safe. We think cats are a little too fun and would do best in a home without them. I am not very fond of dogs other than Tinker. If you think that we might be a good fit for your home, please ask about us today. We are in a foster home while Tinker was recovering from surgery. If you are interested in meeting us, please email the foster coordinator at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us to set up a time.

"BRADY" knows sit, down, shake - Blue/white Pitbull


Available for adoption at Multnomah County Animal Services!

 here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584404

My name is Brady. If you are looking for a real winner, then I am your man! I know sit, down, and shake. I love to play fetch and tug, but will "drop it" when asked. I am a big guy who looks to my friends to give me attention all the time. I have been great meeting new people, but I can get a bit too excited and jump up, so my new family should help me work on my manners with kids older than 12 years old recommended. I would also prefer a home where I am the only animal resident, so I can enjoy all of the attention to myself. Taking me home would be a real touchdown for your team, so come say hello! I am 3 years old and weigh 77 pounds.



"MAX" (aka Ox) cool big lug - Mastiff

animal # 582154
Mcas weblink

My name is Ox (aka Max)! True to the definition, I am one large guy. Even though I am a big guy, I am very sweet and cuddly, and love following my shelter friends around when I get the chance to get out and hang. I know sit, down, stay, and shake. I have a very special human friend here at the shelter, and he wants you to know that you would be getting one heck of a new friend if you adopt me-so come on down the the shelter and stay hello! I have had trouble living with another dog in the past so I would need to be the only dog in my new home and only live with children 15 years and up. I am 108 pounds and I am around 7-8 years old.

 
 
 
 I can look somewhat intimidating, I know, but I'm a big softie

"DIESEL" (and sibling "MOTOR" ) sweet young (basically calm) Weimaraners (Oregon Weim Rescue)


Available for Adoption with Oregon Weimaraner Rescue!
Diesel and his sibling Motor are currently in OWR Foster homes. They get along well, but will be better placed in individual homes
with a female dog companion. 
Please check the OWR site for more info
OWR Facebook link
No cats
No birds
No small furries
Female dogs encouraged
Here's Diesel's OWR weblink
UPDATE 2/19:
Diesel's OWR Foster home notes: "Diesel is a sweet guy who is allowing his personality to show through while becoming more a member of the pack each day (I have 3 of my own weims). Similar to his brother, Diesel came into our home being a bit aloof, but he is now warming up to us and seeking our attention. Diesel is a really calm dog, which is surprising given his young age, who is becoming just a total sweetheart. He is even becoming fond of going into his wire crate. Command responsiveness is also improving every day."

Hey everybody! My name is Cindy Lou and I'm looking for a nice retirement home! I am just the sweetest lady who enjoys giving kisses, going for walks, and spending time with my humans. As you can see, I am in need of some good TLC. Though I'm quite lumpy and bumpy, I still have a lot of pep in my step and can't wait to settle in somewhere for my golden years. My new home will need to be an adult only home without any other dogs. I am around 12 years old and weigh 68 pounds. I am currently taking a break from the shelter in a foster home. If you are interested in meeting me, please email the foster coordinator at jennifer.sparkman@multco.us to set up a time. You will love me!

Looking for a new super friend for your home? Thor here, I'm a sweet pitbull mix fella who enjoys leaning into pets, going for walks, and staring deep into your eyes for some extra attention. You may have noticed that my ear looks a little odd, and I am currently dealing with some medical issues that may require even more future veterinary intervention. I have had some bad history with other dogs and should be the only dog in my new home and only with children 10 and up.  I'm about 4 years old and weigh 66 lbs




"MCAS FOSTERS and Volunteers are always appreciated!!"


Interested in learning about volunteering and fostering at the shelter? Attend one of our volunteer orientations! 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

Laundry   
=============================
Want to make a big difference in an animal's life?
Please consider Volunteering at the MCAS Shelter. You know... you really CAN volunteer at more than one local shelter, and even though the MCAS shelter is old, a bit further out, and can be noisy - all the more reason that the animals there will benefit from your volunteer help ;)
Here's the MCAS shelter Volunteer page to find out more

And , if you don't want to volunteer in the actual shelter but still want to help the Multnomah County shelter animals, then please consider becoming a Volunteer Foster Home?
Foster Homes are amazing! and much appreciated, and it's so 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!

If you're not ready to volunteer with the shelter, but want to help the animals, there are lots of other things that you can do to help the MCAS pets (donate, be an advocate).
Another very simple, effective thing to do is advise your friends to:
- Get ID tags for their pets, and if possible - micro chip them and keep contact info current and
- Contact the local animal shelters if you have lost or found a dog (and if lost one - check regularly even months after pet is lost, the animal can show up in a shelter)

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal id # 584006

Hey everybody! My name is Linus and I'm looking for a special home! The shelter is a very stressful place for a high energy guy like me. My perfect home would be one that is very active and has the time to give me the exercise and mental stimulation that I need. I love toys, especially the tennis ball! It is certainly my favorite. I love chasing it and bringing it back for you to throw again. I have some great skills already down which include a super sit, shake and down. I am very motivated by treats as well and am eager to learn more! I will need an adult only home that is also dog free! I need and demand to be your center of attention. If you think we could make a great match, come down and meet me today! I am about 3 years old and weigh 74 pounds.
