Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) is an animal rescue shelter and an animal control agency. Responsible for the city of Portland and neighboring communities in Multnomah County, our officers are responsible for performing animal abuse and cruelty investigations. We also offer dog and cat licensing, lost and found pet services, and animal adoptions through our shelter in Troutdale.
News and Announcements
Multnomah County Animal Services is dedicated to providing staff members with opportunities for training and growth. Once each month, all MCAS employees come together for a monthly staff meeting and occasionally, these meetings provide an opportunity for outside experts to share their knowledge with MCAS staff.
Pets on Broadway, one of our neighborhood cat adoption partners, has been collecting Weruva canned food donations for MCAS for several weeks. This food drive was punctuated with a "Caturday" celebration this past Saturday to celebrate their 100th MCAS cat adoption. The event was wildly successful and MCAS received a large donation of Weruva food as a result of their efforts. Thank you so much to Pets on Broadway, Weruva, and all of the people who came out and donated! We appreciate your generosity.
From June 7-11, MCAS will have an "Everything's Coming Up Roses" adoption special. For a limited time, cats and dogs can be adopted for just the cost of a license fee. That's just $12 for cats and $25 for dogs. Trained staff members and volunteers can work with you to find just the right pet for your lifestyle. We hope you'll stop by to add furry friend to your family!
Last week, Multnomah County Animal Services rescued 64 dogs (mostly poodles), 5 cats and 4 birds from filthy conditions in a home in SE Portland. The condition of the dogs varied greatly. Many were in poor condition, matted and caked with feces But aside from being dirty and in need of grooming, some were in fairly good condition.
When police responded to a welfare check on the morning of Thursday, May 9, they had no idea they would discover approximately 65 poodles, 5 cats and 4 birds living in poor conditions at the home at 13223 SE Harold in Portland. They called in Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) and animal control officers responded immediately to assess the animals and plan for their transport and care.
