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.
A local family's chihuahua was recently lost when she got loose after the family's car was involved in a head-on collision. She was lost for six days before another family found her and brought her to our shelter in Troutdale.
She was reunited with her family through the help of a microchip. You can view the whole KOIN Local 6 story here.
The first phone call came in at 10:18 a.m. on Monday. It was quickly followed by dozens of frantic phone calls about a dog running loose on the eastbound lanes of Hwy 84. Police and four Multnomah County Animal Control units quickly responded.
Multnomah County Animal Services is thrilled to announce that we recently received a $71,500 donation from The Friends of the Shelter, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for us. In the past, The Friends have donated funds to us for the construction of our cattery and hospital area. The most current donation will be used for four purposes:
Chaka was our K103 Pet of the Week today! She's loyal, mature, housetrained and well behaved. She's also playful and gets along well with children.
She needs to be the only pet in her new forever home. As a bonus, she will provide free squirrel patrol for your yard! Chaka is available for adoption right now.
Emily was the K103 Pet of the Week and she is quite a little gem! She is a plushy soft girl with big, black spots on her white fur and big, gold eyes set in a cute, round little face. She is as sweet as she is pretty, and loves to cuddle and purr.
Are you looking for some bunny to love? Meet Carla and Donnie- our K103 Pets of the Week! Donnie is very social, litterbox-trained, and just 7 months old. Carla is a little shy, but she's improving with all the attention she's getting.
Multnomah County Animal Services is fortunate to have an amazing network of volunteers and foster families for our shelter animals. In 2011, more than 115 dogs received extra TLC from foster families.
Longfellow was our K103 Pet of the Week. Are you looking for a big, goofy dog who will shower you with loyalty and devotion? Look no further! Longfellow is a big, sweet boy who thinks he's a lap dog.
We're pleased to announce that the 2012 Masters in Behavior Conference is coming on Feb 4-6, 2012. Multnomah County Animal Services is a proud sponsor of this annual event which provides specialty training for professionals working in animal shelters and in animal behavior related professions.
