"ROCKY" a delightful GSD

I am a really incredible dog just waiting to be discovered by a fabulous home! I have been a gentle and easy boy here at the shelter.

I am looking for a loving home as an indoor family member. I have some basic manners but reward based classes will be required as part of my adoption to help us get off to a good start together.
I am about 2 years of age and I weigh 55lbs. Ask about me today!

"SHELBY" darling mature German Shepherd mix

ADOPTED to a great home today!

I am a sweet and mature lady looking for a new family. There is still a spring in my step and a jog in my gait, but at the end of the day, I would love nothing more than to curl up at the foot of your bed.

 The best part about adopting a dog my age, no puppy training! I have manners and will adjust well to almost any home! Please ask to meet me today.

I am around 9 years old and weigh just under 50 pounds. Hope you come see me today!

"MARA" sweet senior

Meet Mara- She's jewel of a dog in her golden years (10+ years old) and a healthy 62 lbs. The last few years have been rough after her former owners divorced and she was bounced around. Now she's looking for a laid-back "retirement" home.
Mara is house-broken, crate-trained and very mellow. She has lived with children, cats, and is currently getting along great with 2 dogs in her foster home. She loves napping, snuggling and her daily walk. Mara is hard of hearing, but responds to hand-clapping, whistling and using hand signs and facial gestures. Check her out - she just may be the companion you are looking for!
Please contact the foster coordinator Donna at 503-545-3021 or to meet her!

Not all ladies can wear spinster with as much style and grace as Ethel, which is why she is so special!

This sensitive 7 year old is looking for a loving, forever home that will provide her with some stability, a warm bed, and everlasting love.  You see, humans have let her down before.  Consider Ethel as your new indoor companion, so that she can continue her quest to make spinsterhood look fabulous!

"GARFIELD" hyper funny little brindle mix


Hi my shelter name is Garfield, Gar for short. As you can tell by just looking at me I am what you call a live wire? Translation... full of energy and super smart. We are going to have so much fun going together to classes! I will make you so proud!

I am a young man about a year old looking for some positive role models to help me transform into the star I am destined to become. My greeting with dogs are a little rough and need some polishing up. I will need some special training and patience in that area.

  I can see myself in fly ball, nose work or some other activity that stimulates the mind and body. Up for the challenge? Ask about me today. Here's my MCAS weblink

"PRINCESS" cuddle Pittie


They call me Princess, but I just want to be your loyal friend. I am a sensitive girl with a bit of a sassy side. I can be playful and cuddly and I am downright quick as a whip when it comes to training. 




I have some great basics and I can catch a tossed treat like nobody's business! I am looking for a home with a single person, couple, or family with kids over the age of 10 years and NO cats.

I am about 2 years of age and I weigh a healthy 44 lbs. Here's my MCAS weblink

"HARLEY" BIG, handsome, sensitive Pitbull

I am looking for a home that wants a canine buddy! I will need daily exercise and training and someone who will be patient as I learn the rules of your home. I am willing and will be extra interested if there is a treat involved! 



The shelter suggests that we take some training together to start off on the right paw together. I have made some dog friends here and I love to play but may be too much for smaller dogs or the dog park. It was noted during my evaluation here that someone may have used objects, like a rolled up newspaper for example, to 'train' me. This has resulted in me being fearful of things held in people's hands. 

Please talk to your counselor about reward based methods and how to help me trust again. I am about 4 years of age and I weigh a chubby 73 lbs. Here's my MCAS weblink

"ROSCOE" spicy and cute


I am a spicy little terrier mix looking for an active home. Like some of my terrier type friends, I may sound off on noises and things that I find exciting. Its not much fun to for me or the person holding the leash when I start barking. BUT, I love food and training is something that will improve my response to things and our relationship! Reward based training classes are required as part of my adoption. 



I am looking for a home with a single person, couple, or family with kids over the age of 10 years. I am likely not a match for a home with a cat but a mellow and social adult canine friend may be something that could work. I am about 2 years of age and I weigh 16lbs. Here's my MCAS weblink

"PRINCESS" funny Chihuahua mix

My name is Princess and I am looking for the royal treatment! I am an energetic and active dog who hopes to be your companion and friend.


I get along with everyone I meet and I enjoy the company of people and dogs.  My previous home was unable to potty train me, so please talk to your adoption counselor about housetraining options. No dog is ever too mature to be trained and if you are patient and kind, we can do it together. 

I am about 7 years of age and I weigh 10lbs. Ask about me today!

Hi there! My name is Lucy, I am a smart and active young lady looking for a home dedicated to meeting my needs and of course loving me.


I have some training down, but of course it would be great if my new humans take me to obedience training to help me be the best dog I can be!

I am no couch potato, so be ready to exercise! If I sound like the girl for you, please ask to meet me today! I am about 1 year old and I weigh 43lbs. Here's my MCAS weblink

"MAC" rakishly handsome


Did I catch your eye? Mac is my name, so pleased to meet you. I am one of those terrier types, rakishly handsome and a smart as a whip. I advise you to keep up with me so I don't get myself into any mischief.



The shelter has a great idea, we will go to classes together. This will help channel my active mind and body. We will bond that much faster!

Ask about me today. I am a black and tan male Terrier mix, around a year old and weigh about 30 lbs. Here's my MCAS weblink
