If you are able to safely collect the animal, you may bring it to our shelter in Troutdale during normal shelter hours. See additional options for found pets.
If you can not safely collect the animal, please call (503) 988-7387 to report an emergency.
If the animal can be safely confined, call (503) 988-7387 during regular call center hours and arrange to have an animal control officer investigate.

If you want to report an animal abuse or neglect situation for a pet that is not in immediate danger, please call (503) 988-7387 during regular call center hours. If necessary, you may remain anonymous. If you are unsure whether a situation is neglect, it is best to file a report and let the animal control officer make the determination.
If the owner is unwilling to comply or you can’t find the owner and you believe the animal’s life is in jeopardy, call (503) 988-7387 to report an emergency.
