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
Pet food maker Weruva is teaming up with one of our neighborhood cat adoption partners, Pets on Broadway, to provide MCAS with canned cat food for shelter cats. Weruva will match canned cat food donations, can for can, made by the public. The goal is to provide MCAS with enough canned cat food for three months (934 cans).
In celebration of the sunny days, warm air and explosion of blossoms, MCAS is having a Spring Fling Adoption Special on May 9th - 12th. All cats and dogs can be adopted to loving homes for just the cost of a license fee. That's $12 for cats and $25 for dogs. This price includes not only your pet license, but also shots, a microchip and spay/neuter. We hope you'll stop by the shelter to find your new best friend!
Pets on Broadway is a local pet shop that has served the residents of NE Portland since 1990. They are committed to offering customers a large variety of food choices, including food by local manufacturers and hard-to-find foods for more exotic pets, such as hedgehogs and chinchillas. They came aboard as an MCAS Neighborhood Cat Adoption Partner in July of 2012. We're thrilled to report that since that time, they've adopted out 89 homeless cats from the MCAS shelter!
In honor of Earth Day, MCAS is holding an adoption special on April 19 - 23. Our "recycled" shelter pets can be adopted into new forever homes for just the cost of a license fee. (That's $25 for dogs and $12 for cats.) This is a great time to add a furry friend to your family!
We see a lot of happy endings here at the MCAS shelter. Here are two stories that really stood out over the past week.
Max, a darling little Shi Tzu, came to MCAS as part of a cruelty/neglect investigation. He spent 249 days in the care of MCAS. The shelter environment can be stressful for animals, especially the more fragile animals. Fortunately for Max, he spent much of that time in one of our caring foster homes. We're thrilled to report that Max was just adopted into a loving new home.
