Have you considered transitioning your cat indoors but haven’t been able to get started? According to the Humane Society, about two-thirds of cats live indoors either all or almost all of the time. As your vet will support, these indoor felines enjoy freedom from a laundry list of perils - diseases, parasites, automobile traffic, poisoning, our healthy population of urban coyotes, and simply getting lost.

We are the primary agency responsible for lost pet care, animal abuse investigations and animal rescue in Multnomah County.
