We only pick up stray animals and wild animals, not owned animals. Animals must be in Multnomah County and on public property, or moved from private property to be picked-up. However, if you find a domestic animal, please let us come pick it up so we can document them.
Officers are unable to pick up deceased animals on private property, and finders are advised to move them to a discreet area in the public right-of-way, in a bag and/or box if found in an inaccessible location.
Due to ongoing social distancing recommendations from public health authorities, we encourage finders of deceased wildlife to be as specific as possible in their reports to describe the location and nature of each find, position relative to the curb, and any bags or containers used, as face-to-face clarifications with officers are to be avoided as much as possible.
