"LATTE" high energy boost!


Are you ready to adopt an active puppy into your life, and  able to provide the time, love, commitment and training needed?  If so, Latte might be the one for you!  She is adorable, only 6 months old, and full of life!





"BRADLEY" cute little guy!


Hello, my name is Bradley! I am cute as a button and have a friendly fun personality too! I've landed myself homeless and am hoping that someone will fall in love with me quick! A laid back, gentle and patient family with children over 6 is what I'm looking for! You see, I have some knee trouble so no jogging for me. You might think its cute when I roll over when reached for but really I'm trying to ask you for space. Positive training techniques will help built our relationship and build my confidence! The shelter will require we attend a class together to get us started. Ask about me today! I am around 2 years and 16 lbs

Here's my MCAS weblink to find out more!

"TORI" fluffy and sweet


I am just as sweet as can be and I hope you are looking for a dog like me!  I  will need regular grooming, good quality food, and regular fleas control to get and keep my skin and coat in shape. 

I'm used to living with people of all ages and I am a sensitive girl. I am looking for someone who will keep me as a well loved family member.  Hope you'll come see me today!

"JAY' a Basset Hound!

Hello, my name is Jay! I am a jolly old basset hound that came to the shelter in really sad condition.

Although I have a few medical issues, that doesn't stop me from being happy to meet anyone and everyone!

Now I am looking for a new family that can give me some TLC, a comfy bed to lay on and of course long walks to use my nose! Are you interested in me? Come down to the shelter and say hello! I am 10 years old and weigh 60lbs.

Looking forward to meeting you!  Here is my MCAS weblink:

"BANDIT" soft and adorable! Pitbull/Basset Hound mix!


Hello, I'm Bandit! I am quite the adorable little Low Rider boy! 

I came to the shelter easily overwhelmed by strangers and noises but with lots of food from different people I have started to become more confident! Once I feel safe, I am a silly, social and affectionate friend!

Hope to see you soon!  Here's my MCAS weblink:

"MONA" cuddly well mannered Cocker Spaniel!


Mona is a great girl! She’s a soft natured, well mannered, sweet and cuddly Cocker Spaniel seeking her perfect family. Mona is house trained, crate trained, enjoys the company of nice dogs and adores her foster family. They rave about what a good girl she is and that she’ll make someone a wonderful companion. Mona is about 5 years old, prefers a quieter lifestyle and may be overwhelmed with youngsters in the home so she’s requesting children 10+ apply. She’s diligently working on her those pesky extra pounds and would love a walking partner to help her slim down to a healthier weight. Mona loves car rides and is quick to call shotgun for road trips. She’s looking for a family that will keep her golden locks in order with grooming appointments and frequent brushing. Beauty does come with a price but she’s worth it! To learn more about this sweet girl contact Angela, the foster coordinator @ 503-807-9134.

"PATOOTIE" a cutie Golden Retriever mix pup!


I’m an adorable pup with tons of potential but I need the right family committed to helping me get there! When I came to the shelter I was pretty scared. I scored a foster home and my family has really helped me learn about the big, sometimes scary world. I get to go to work with my foster mom and I love meeting all the new people. I’m happy and friendly but if something startles me my response may be to bark at it. I need an owner committed to classes (required with my adoption) and of course lots and lots of field trips and positive experiences. With a proper introduction I enjoy other dogs but until we meet they too may get a woof of uncertainly. I’m living with a kitty and tend to think chase is more fun than him so a cat free home is likely best. Oh ya, no chickens in my new home. I really can’t help my bird dog instinct here! If you like sweet, athletic, smart sorts and enjoy working with/training your dogs I may be the boy for you! Tucker is approximately 5 months old. To learn more about this cutie contact Angela, the foster coordinator @ 503-807-9134.

"PINKY" calm and mellow


Hi there! Pinky is my name, but I am not as sassy as that moniker might imply. I have lived a pretty much solitary life, often kept alone in the yard and not paid attention to. But I am looking forward to finding that special person who will open up their heart and home to a dog in need of a second chance. Because the shelter does not have much information about me, I am looking for a home as the only pet or with a social adult male dog and kids over the age of 12 years. I have been mellow and calm in all of my interactions with people here. I am about 7 years old and I weigh a thin 52.2 lbs


I hoping to meet you soon!   Here's my MCAS weblink:

"FINNAGAN & DOTTY" the perfect little older Couple

ADOPTED Together!!!

When their owner passed away, Dotty and Finnagan came into the MCAS shelter to find a new home (hopefully together!)  These 2 are both gentle spirited, slow and easy little senior dogs and love people! They are so fun to be around, and they love their easygoing morning and afternoon walks!

I'm Dotty!

I'm Finnagan!


 Together, we  make an adorable older couple! 


We hope to meet you soon!  Here are our MCAS weblink files for more info:


" PETER" fun little Lhasa mix


Hello, my name is Peter! I have landed myself horribly matted and without a family but I can say that none of that has gotten my spirits down!

I have been an enthusiastic little guy with a fun personality! A family found me wondering the streets and took me in for a couple of days. They report that I am housetrained, social with other dogs and lived with young children!

Now who doesn't want these traits in a new companion? Please come down to the shelter and meet me! I am around 6 years old and weigh 15 lbs.

Here's my MCAS weblink for more info. Would love to meet you!

"CARL" fun loving Cocker Spaniel!


I'm Carl, a rambunctious, fun-loving cocker spaniel who loves toys, people, other dogs, rolling around in the grass, and carrying toys around everywhere I go. Life is fun and wonderful and every moment should be lived to the fullest, don't you agree? I am both crate trained and potty trained. I do pull a bit on leash, but hey, no one is perfect! I am wonderfully food motivated, so we will have lots of fun taking training classes together! Because I am so full-of-life, the shelter thinks I will do best in a home with children who are 10 or older. Also, I will require routine visits to the groomer to keep my coat free from matting. I promise you that with me, life will be anything but boring. If you want to share your home with a lively, vivacious muppet such as myself, please contact Angela, the foster coordinator, at: 503-807-9134.

I'm adorable!  Here's my "shaggy look"

Here's my Groomed look! 

I'm a happy boy!  Check out my MUSIC VIDEO!
