Cat Adoption Team (CAT) is one of MCAS's adoption placement partners, so when a pipe recently burst in their building and caused significant damage, we sent over our portable Spay Station.

Dori is our K103 Pet of the Week for Wet Nose Wednesday today! She is an American Shelter Dog, which is a fancy way to say we really do not know what breeds comprise this pretty girl. To learn more about Dori, come down to the shelter to meet her in person.
Taylor was our K103 Pet of the Week for Wet Nose Wednesday today! She's a cute, spunky, holstein-marked girl with big, all-seeing eyes. She originally came into the shelter when she was about 3 months old and now finds herself in need of a new home. Her previous owners had to give her up because they had a new baby and it was just too much for her.
You might have caught the big news story to hit Portland in the past 24 hours. A lost Jack Russell Terrier found her way onto a TriMet bus. Through the help of a caring passenger and a TriMet supervisor, the dog was taken to a local vet where it was determined that she had neither identification nor a microchip. We are currently caring for her here at the shelter.
Scooter made the local Portland news last summer when her owner used her to intimidate and rob a father and son. When her owner was arrested, Scooter came to the MCAS shelter for care.
MCAS began its doggie play groups program in 2011. This program offers shelter dogs a break from being in the adoption kennels, which can be somewhat stressful. It also offers shelter staff an opportunity to observe dogs interacting with other dogs so that information can be passed on to adopters. This information provides adopters with a better idea of a particular dog's level of sociability
Zeuterin is FDA approved for use in male dogs 3-10 months old as a sterilization agent. In May, it's expected to be approved for all male dogs 3 months and older. It is a solution of zinc that is simply injected into each testicle while the dog is sedated and is 96.6% effective in causing sterility. This procedure is a fraction of the cost of a traditional neuter surgery.
KPTV recently ran a story about a dog named Gris who was removed from his home after a neighbor reported his owner punched him and hit him with baseball bat. Gris survived the attack and is now being cared for at the MCAS shelter in Troutdale.
