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.
Found as a stray near Johnson Creek Boulevard and 82nd Street in SE Portland, Angel the senior cat was hungry, lost, and covered with fleas. A good samaritan brought the senior cat to Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) on May 28 in hopes that her owner would be found.
Trapped in the garage of an unoccupied home, Domino the cat was saved by vigilant neighbors listening for his cries, Multnomah County Animal Services Officer Cherry, and caring owners Tyrone and René.
The "Pitties in Pink" Float did it again in the Portland Rose Festival's 2017 Starlight Parade, winning first place in the non-commercial division. "Pitties in Pink" is the response of Multnomah County Animal Services to the many pit bulls up for adoption at the shelter.
Doris knew her dog, Paloma, was in distress and needed help, but she didn’t have a ride or money to take the dog to the vet. Doris called Multnomah County Animal Services, and Officer Cherry brought Doris and Paloma to DoveLewis Animal Hospital for treatment.
