MCAS is fortunate to have a network of amazing foster families who regularly open their homes and hearts to pets who need a little time away from the shelter for special care.
It's that time of year again... Kitten season is upon us and Portland area shelters are scrambling to find enough foster homes for cats and kittens. MCAS is no exception.
Throughout the months of May, June and July, MCAS held an adoption special. All pets were available for just the cost of a license fee. As a result, we experienced a significant boost in adoption rates. We're so pleased with the success of the adoption special that we've decided to extend it again for one more month!
Several witnesses called 911 on May 21st after watching in horror as a dog named Rhino desperately attempted to keep up with a moving vehicle that he was tied to. Good samaritans managed to wave down the car and get them to stop. By the time the vehicle finally stopped, the dog's paws has sustained injuries and were bleeding profusely.
KOIN Local 6 recently ran a story about Pepper, a dog found so malnourished that most of his hair fell out. Pepper was found by a good samaritan and later brought to the MCAS shelter. He's currently being given some much-deserved TLC in a foster home.

Chachi the cat went missing from his home in Salem in March of this year. His family searched for him and posted fliers around the neighborhood, but they were unable to find him. Somehow, Chachi found his way to Gresham where a good samaritan found him and brought him to the MCAS shelter.
