Multnomah County Animal Services wants to help Portland Public Schools get the word out about their new public service message, "Keep PPS Schoolyards Safe & Healthy."

After performing a legal investigation and a veterinary examination, Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) reunited Lux the cat with his owners this morning. Lux achieved international fame last week when owners Lee Palmer and Teresa Barker called 911 to report the cat was being aggressive and had trapped them in their bedroom.
