Other Ways to Help

There are lots of ways to stay in touch with Multnomah County Animal Services and help us spread our message. You can help pets find new homes by following us on social media and sharing our messages and adoptable pets with your friends.

Every time you share our content, it makes the community more aware of our services and animals. With your help, we can get more animals adopted and more pets returned to their owners.

Not a social media user? Want to help out even more?

If you visit any of of our adoptable animal profile pages, you'll see a "printable poster" button. You can print out small posters of adoptable pets and post them at work, at school, or at community bulletin boards at cafes, grocery stores and libraries around town. This helps our pets get a great deal of exposure! Lots of people like to make this part of their weekly routine.


You can donate to your choice of four different donation funds, depending on where you'd like your donation to go. You can also donate items on our donation wish list or order items from our Amazon wish list and have them sent directly to our shelter.
