"SASSY" and cute too!


Are you looking for some great entertainment? I love to watch tv and yes actually watch it, I will bark at animals that come on... what can I say they are in my house. I am potty trained as long as I can get out for timely potty breaks. I love to go on little walks. I play great with my foster dogs in the house, but can be protective of my food (not with people) and toys. My under bite keeps my foster mom smiling and I am very fun to watch. I am very attached to my people, I do not like being in my crate but am a very considerate bed guest, I do snore however. Small children can be a little overwhelming for me, so I ask that kids in the home be over the age of 12 years old. The shelter will require that we have some sessions with a shelter approved trainer as part of my adoption. I am approximately 9 years old and weigh 19 pounds.



"SHADOW" such a Nice boy!


I am an older gentleman looking for the quieter side of life. I lived previously with three other dogs but mostly as an outdoor pet. I should adjust easily to life as a pampered house pet with just a little bit of patience on your part. I am looking for a cat-free home but a well matched dog my size would keep me company. I need a securely fenced yard and would prefer a home with adults only or kids over the age of 10 years. I am about 10 years of age and I weigh a healthy 57lbs. Please ask about me today! I am currently in a foster home where they are learning so much about me. If you are interested in me please contact Angela at

  The shelter will require classes as part of my adoption. Please ask about ME today! I am just about 1 year of age (or a little younger) and I weigh a growing 56lbs.

Hope to meet you soon at MCAS!

 I'm now searching for a new family with no children under 10 that I can build a trustful relationship with! It may take a little time but don't worry, your dedication and patience will be rewarded with an affectionate, playful and fun companion!

"JOHNSON" tiny lovable Chihuahua boy


Hello, my name is Johnson! I am a cute petite chihuahua that is looking for a new family! My shelter friends don't have any history of my behavior in a home but they can tell you that I get a little insecure with all the noises and strangers but if you sit on the ground I will climb in your lap and maybe give you a couple of kisses!

A quiet home with no children under 12 is what I’m searching for! We can also tell you that I had a silly episode here that may have been a seizure, please ask the information desk for more information about me!

"JARED" sweet Dachshund


Hello my shelter name is Jared. My dad was unable to care for me so I find myself in a scary state. I have to admit I am just kind of shut down right now numb to this situation.

I am asking for a patient family with children at least 10 years if not older. I need time to recover and then you will learn all about me. Breed knowledge is always a help so Dachshund Lovers are encouraged to ask about me. I am a brown and white dapple neutered male Dachshund, approximately 7 years old and weighs about 19 lbs.  Hope to see you soon! Here's my MCAS webink

"HUEY" goofy young American Shelter Dog!


In person, I look very much like a Border Collie type, maybe mixed with Lab and a little Pitbull?  I sure am a cutie pie!

If you are looking for a stellar companion, then look no further! I am an outstanding young man with a good start to my basic training and a friendly personality. 

I haven't met anyone here that I didn't like and I think all dogs are my friends BUT, cats and me are not a good fit. Training classes are required as part of my adoption.  I am about 2 years of age and I weigh 54lbs. Ask about me today!  Here's my MCAS weblink

"RJ" - update!!

RJ fabulous UPDATE!!!

Against all odds, RJ the wonder dog, is on his way to a career as a drug detector dog!  Maddy of Wet Dog Wellness, hooked RJ up with a trainer friend who trains dogs for police!  Oh happy day!!  Thank you Maddy.  Thank you MCAS, and Stephanie, for not giving up on this dog!!  Thank you to all who networked RJ!!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!!

RJ is a dog that has been at Multnomah County Shelter since March 1st. Four months of kennel life is much too hard for an active dog like RJ, but MCAS has not given up on finding him his forever home. In an effort to release some of his frustration and energy, RJ got to take a special field trip today.....check it out!!!
