Veronica was our K103 Pet of the Day for Wet Nose Wednesday! She's an all-American girl - like in the Archie Comics! Her coat is soooo rabbity soft. Plus, she's active, friendly, cuddly, and likes to have her tummy rubbed. Click here to read more about Veronica.
Polly Anna is a darling little Pomeranian mix who was in terrible shape when she first came to MCAS on December 9th of last year. She was almost completely bald with extremely inflamed skin over her whole body. She had a severe case of demodectic mange, which is caused by microscopic mites that infest the hair follicles. Mange is common in neglect cases.
Iris was our K103 Pet of the Week! She's quite the cuddler and thinks she is a lap dog. Her dad lost his job in these hard times and no longer has a place to live so he had to return beautiful Iris. Iris is active and lively and very affectionate. She lived with children and was sweet to newly met children as well.
Zelma was the K103 Pet of the Week! She's a sweet, 6 year old, red and white American Pitbull mix (possibly with a little Bassett Hound in her). Because she has short legs, she'll need a home without many stairs and will need to avoid jumping up and down from couches, beds, etc. If you'd like to give Zelma a forever home, come on out to the shelter to meet her.
Did you catch us on the news? KPTV Channel 12 News ran a story last night about MCAS's ACT (apartment cat TNR) Team program.
We hope you'll join us on the evening of Tuesday, Feb 21st from 6:30-7:30 pm to learn about our community's cat issues and how you can help by joining our ACT Team.
In 2006, MCAS was the first shelter in Oregon to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This is an accomplishment achieved by only 15% of vet clinics in the US and Canada. We're pleased to announce that MCAS has just earned it's AAHA re-accreditation.
We're pleased to announce a brand new service for lost pet owners in Multnomah County. MCAS will now be periodically creating videos of the lost cats and dogs in our intake kennels and posting the videos on our web site. It is our goal to reunite as many lost animals with their owners as possible.
Brady is the K013 Pet of the Week! He's a brilliant and active young man looking for a home who will provide daily exercise, guidance, and training to help him into adulthood.
He's still young and has a lot to learn, like how hard is too hard when taking a treat! The shelter will require that his adopter take classes with him and is not recommending him for a home with young kids.
Porter and Percy were our K103 Pets of the Week today! They're brothers that came in to the shelter together but will adjust and flourish once separated.
