Rihanna, a pitbull mix

We care about all the animals in our shelter and here’s a story of one dog that has really captured our hearts.

At the March 29 Multnomah County Board of Commissioners meeting, Animal Services advocated for Shelter Dreams, a project to build a new shelter in the city of Portland. Animal Services’ current facility in Troutdale is too small and inconveniently located to properly serve the needs of its residents and the visiting public.

(The following story is told to us by Animal Control Officer Nicole Cherry.)

A local business recently called Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) to report a small, fluffy, white dog running loose near their business on SE 34th and Powell. Their attempts to catch the dog were unsuccessful, so they called us at Animal Services for assistance.
