Notice About Donated Pet Food

Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) now uses Hill’s Food, Shelter, Love program to feed a consistent, stable diet to shelter residents throughout their stay.

MCAS still accepts donations of dry and canned food for pets. However, these generous donations are provided as emergency pet food assistance to community members in need and are distributed at the shelter, and also by Animal Services Officers on calls where immediate food-support is needed. Pet food donations will not be used to feed shelter animals.

Some pet food donations may be redistributed to regional animal welfare organizations and food banks.

We can always use the following items:

  • High-value treats for animal enrichment: Appropriate treats for dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and rabbits are always welcome, and help with enrichment.
  • Toys: We always need durable chew toys for dogs, and other toys for cats and rabbits. Please limit types of toys and chews to items on our Amazon wishlist or similar.
  • Blankets and towels: Clean warm, durable fleece blankets, and clean towels are always needed.
  • Dog Collars: Xtra-Small, small and large Petsafe Martingale Collars

We're unable to accept these items:

  • Bed sheets, bed pillows, or pet beds- these cannot be easily cleaned regularly in an industrial washing machine and dryer.
  • Choke chains, studded collars, or prong collars for dogs.
  • Toys or chews dissimilar to items on our Amazon wishlist. Many rawhide chews and other toys may be a choking or ingestion hazard when dogs are unmonitored.
