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." As part of the campaign, we'd like to remind dog owners that Multnomah County Ordinances require that dogs be leashed when in public places.
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.
Lux the cat, who made headlines last week when his owners called 911, is now being cared for here at Multnomah County Animal Services. He was brought in on Monday, March 17 after his owners called us to report an incident and requested he be removed from their home. We are working with the owners to facilitate the best possible outcome for Lux.
