Multnomah County Animal Services Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

The Multnomah County Animal Services Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is a community advisory body set up to advise the Animal Services Director on service improvements from the public’s perspective, elevate diverse community voices, and act as a liaison between MCAS and the public to help raise awareness of MCAS, its roles, and responsibilities. The Mission of the Animal Services CAC is to build and maintain a trusting and collaborative relationship with Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS), learn and understand what MCAS does and why, and provide equity-focused feedback to the MCAS Director on how MCAS can best serve the people and pets of Multnomah County. The committee is made up of 9-12 members of the public. We are seeking folks with lived experience with pet ownership or who have received MCAS services, and who live or work in Multnomah County. We are excited to work with people who are focused on impact and will commit to trust-building and collaboration.
