What an amazing community we live in! Last week, we were overcapacity for cats in our shelter. On August 26, we had a total of 226 animals in our shelter. We put out a plea to the public and with the help of local news stations and supporters on social media, the word got out.
Did your kids head back to school? Are you sad because your "nest" is feeling empty? Now's a great time to adopt a fur baby! The adoption fee is waived for all pets that have been in the shelter for more than two weeks if you make a donation to Dolly's Fund. Come on down- we'll help you find just the right pet for your family!
When Jasmine came into our shelter on May 13, 2014, neither of her front legs worked properly. Our veterinary team diagnosed her with a neurological deficit, due to a probable spinal injury. She also had some lacerations and broken teeth, so it's possible that she was hit by a car.
We'd like to send out a huge thank you to 94/7 for selecting Multnomah County Animal Services to be the beneficiary of Pet Aid 2014. And thank you to the bands and concert goers who came out to support this wonderful event!
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.
Throughout the month of August, we're celebrating with an 80's "Pretty in Pink" themed adoption special! All shelter pets specially designated with the color pink, can be adopted for just the cost of a license fee. That's $25 for dogs and $12 for cats.
So get a little *footloose*, and *like totally* adopt a new furry friend today!
Local radio favorite, 94/7 Alternative Portland, has selected Multnomah County Animal Services to be the recipient of Pet Aid 2014, a special fundraising concert on August 10 from 12:30 pm - 7 pm. Tickets are just $12 and will feature NONONO, The Colourist, Skaters, Wild Cub and Bear Hands.
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!
