On June 10, 2014, MCAS animal control officers rescued eight Great Danes living in deplorable conditions in a barn in Corbett. The dogs were severely malnourished and suffering from worms. All of the Great Danes were placed into foster care while the investigation was active.
We're excited to announce that MCAS recently began a new partnership with Found Animals. Found Animals is a non-profit organization that was created in response to the lost animals of Hurricane Katrina. They provide microchips, microchip registration, and educational information about microchips.

The Fourth of July holiday is always a busy time here at the shelter because a lot of pets get spooked and run off when they hear fireworks. We want to help those lost pets get home as quickly as possible. So, between June 27 and July 6, 2014, any licensed pet that ends up in our care will be reunited with its owner at no cost!
We are full of cats, with only a few empty kennels remaining. Multnomah County Animal Services has just issued a press release. We need the public to adopt and foster cats as soon as possible.
Alex the whippet was left with his petsitter in Portland when his owner, Eva, went on vacation to Italy. Not long after Eva arrived, she received a call that Alex bolted out the front door and was missing. What did Eva do? She immediately hopped on a plane and came home. She tirelessly searched for Alex and enlisted the help of everyone possible.
