When a mother cat was trapped to be spayed, but her kittens scattered, Vivian went kitten fishing to humanely trap the kittens to stay with their mother.
We are so appreciative of the many offers to help animals impacted by the fires and evacuations in the Columbia Gorge. The desire to help with this local disaster is clearly very strong.
Multnomah County Commissioner, Jessica Vega Pederson, adopted a new family member in July! "Marie Curie is an energetic, loving, eight-week-old kitten who has made fast friends everywhere she’s gone." Congratulations to Commissioner Vega Pederson and Marie Curie! #MCAShappyadoptions
Thank you to Solid Gold Pet Nutrition for their recent donation of 13 pallets of premium dog and cat dry food, wet food, dog treats, and health supplements to benefit the animals at Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS). Our warehouse and hearts are full thanks to this generous gift.
When Baller went missing in March 2016, Arturo searched everywhere. He put up posters, talked to neighbors, and posted on websites and groups. He had almost given up hope when his family moved. Thanks to pet licensing and microchipping, Baller the pittie was reunited with Arturo on July 5 after being lost for sixteen months. We live for these sweet reunions. Congratulations Baller and Arturo

Joshua H. has teamed up with Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) to build insulated cat shelters as his Eagle Scout Project. Learn why these shelters can save the lives of outdoor-living cats and how they will support MCAS’s progressive Action Cat Team (ACT).
With humane traps, a water jug, string, wet food, and patience, the Action Cat Team (ACT) is enlisting the help of residents to go “kitten fishing” to humanely capture kittens!
Many adopted cats and dogs have a period of adjustment to become comfortable with their new space and the other people and animals in it. Adopters Kathie and Jason were patient with Frannie, and even built a "Catio" for her and their other felines.
