"FELICIA" lovable Lhasa

here's my MCAS weblink

Hello my name is Felicia and I am around 1 year old. I was recently spayed and had my right cherry eye fixed. I am a little overwhelmed right now but a sweet girl and will need lots of time and patience until I feel comfortable



Due to my shyness, older children would be the best for me. If you are interested in me, come on by the shelter today and visit me.

"REEFE" UPDATE darling Pitmix

here's my MCAS weblink

Reefe is a sweet older gal looking for a loving home. We know she has had multiple homes in her life, and would like just one more! She was quite shy when she came in, but warmed up after learning the routine. 


All the other dogs are a bit much for her, she enjoys the quiet for sure. Please come down and meet her! She is about 9 years old and she weights 58lbs

"TURBO" sweet Lhasa deserves routine grooming

here's my MCAS weblink  ( 8/19 Turbo has an pending adopter!)

Looking for a big furball to add to your life? Then ask about ME! I shouldn't always look this dreadful and will need a trip to the groomer about every 8 weeks or so. 


 I am a little pushy with other dogs and I would prefer a home with kids over the age of 6 years. I am about 2 years of age and I weigh 18lbs. Ask about me today!

The problem with "non- shedders" is that their hair keeps growing longer, and can get horribly matted.
It's sad to see the horrible condition of many of these dogs when they enter the shelter. If you can't afford the "routine spa visit " to groom your non shedding dog,  or can't do the grooming yourself, please don't consider a "non shedding type?  Poodles, Shih Tzus, Lhasas, Bichons, Schnauzers, and more fall into this category.

ps - but many other longhaired dogs like Malamutes, Australian Shepherds, Shelties etc can become painfully matted without routine brushing

"RICHIE" charming, affectionate and sensitive

here's my MCAS weblink

Hello, my name is Richie! I am cute as a button and ready for a new family! I arrived at the shelter as a stray dog so my friends can't tell you what I've gone through but they can say that I am charming, affectionate, and sensitive about certain things.


A patient family with no children under 10 who can respect my boundaries of not appreciating being picked up, or having my feet touched until I can trust my owner. Do you have room in your heart for a guy like me? I am around years old and weigh pounds

'SPARK" happy, cute and lively Yellow Lab mix

 TRANSFERRED to Indigo Rescue!   thank you!!!

here's my MCAS weblink

Boom! Pow! Crash! Just past the 4th of July, you need a little SPARK in your life! Sadly, my family could not have me where they lived anymore and I am now in the market for a new home! I am the ultimate package!



thanks Sarah for my pics!

 I am about 4 years old and have been around young kids, ages 6-11, I am very active and I LOVE LOVE LOVE a game of fetch! My previous life was rather sheltered so I may need some help adjusting to new situations like new people and meeting dogs or even things you think are commonplace like stairs! The shelter is asking that we work with a trainer to help in this process and go to a home with children at least 10 years old. Please come take a look at me today!

"CAROLINA - unique and very pretty tan (Chi? Jack Russell? Doxie?) mix

here's my MCAS weblink

Hi there, my name is Carolina, but I am no southern belle! I am a spitfire of a little gal looking for a home with children over the age of 8, preferably another dog who can handle my energy, and maybe a dog savy cat! When I get excited and play, I can be a bit mouthy. I like to chase the cat, but my foster mom is working on training me to stop before I catch it! When I came to the shelter I had mange and a bad skin infection, I am almost all healed now! The shelter will help with follow up on skin care as part of my adoption.

"OREO" nice little Chihuahua mix

here's my MCAS weblink

Oreo is a 5 year old Chihuahua mix in need of a new home that will provide him with structure and set him up for success. The shelter is highly recommending a home with children over the age of 8

 Obedience classes and work with a certified trainer is recommended to help Oreo become the best dog that he can be! Please ask to meet him today, he is quite the charmer!

"THOR" has lived with cats

Here's my MCAS weblink
Hello, my name is Thor! Sadly I have landed myself here at the shelter because my previous family is unable to take care of me. Here are a few things about me! I am deaf, I have lived with cats and dogs, am housetrained, am good with children and have always been an inside sleep on the bed loved companion! I think that I deserve the best and am seeking a family that can help keep me safe because of my hearing impairment!


My owners also said that I can sometimes be annoying to my feline friends because I like to smell them, and that I would be best matched with a friendly female dog after a very slow introduction or even better no other pets in the home. Please come down to the shelter and meet me! I am 7 years old and weigh 64 pounds

"BLUEBERRY" and "Pancake - Peke" reunited with owner today!!

Please tell people to check at their local county animal shelters if they have lost a dog.  And make sure to get your pets microchipped and tagged for easy id (and keep the contact info current)

Today at MCAS Pancake the Peke and Blueberry the Pitbull  were 2 Very HAPPY dogs when their owner found them at the shelter. (They had been on the adoption floor for a day, and could have been adopted to someone else.....) The lost dogs (no tags, no microchips) had been in the shelter for almost a week. Although the owner was diligently searching for them, he wasn't checking at one of the most important places to look for a lost pet - the animal shelter!

here are some pics of Blueberry taken about an hour before her owner appeared at the shelter looking for her. Blueberry was frantically looking towards the parking lot - for her owner to come get her..... and her wish came true!!

"SUNNY" adorable Sheltie mix!

here's my MCAS weblink  (8/19 Sunny has a potential adopter!)

Hello there, my name is Sunny! I am a handsome gent that is ready for a fresh start. I arrived at the shelter after being bounced around a little bit so I'm hoping this one is my place to retire. There will be loads of entertainment to whoever adopts me! My personality is charming, I enjoy dancing with my back feet when you pet me and my ears flap when I walk as if I'm about ready to fly away.


If you think you have room in your heart for me, come down and say hello!  You would never know it, I look so much younger, but I am around 13 years old and weigh 25 pounds

"ABE" can you Foster Abe?

Abe would LOVE (and Needs)  a good Foster Home hangout! please contact the  shelter at 503-988-7387 or email

We love Abe!!! and don't get why he is still living in a kennel after 18 months? 
  Abe is a Sweetheart!!!! He looks a bit like a Dalmation - white with black spots with a Lab/Pitbull face. Abe acts like a goofy Lab/ Pit mix. Like a Lab, Abe needs to carry something in his mouth - after 18 months living in a kennel, carrying a toy in his mouth....just makes him feel that everything is ok. 

Mar 2013, Abe  was transferred from MCAS to the Lincoln Cty Animal Shelter for a change of venue to get adopted (happy tails soon to come, right?) ...but Older dogs  like Abe often don't get adopted quickly, regardless of their big brown eyes, cute freckles, sweetness or talents!
So now ....July 2014, Abe  transferred back to MCAS....
Here's a quick video!

here's my MCAS weblink

Hello, my name is Abe! My shelter friends are all wondering why I have landed at the shelter! It appears that my previous owners loved me very much since I arrived neutered and with good skills! I might not be true to my breed in regards to giving my heart away and crawling into strangers lap for kisses and pets but if you have food or toys you will have my undivided attention! I know how to sit, shake, down, drop it, and I love to play fetch or tug!

What I'm really looking for now is a patient family with children 10 and older that can give me a second chance at love! Do we sound like a match? Please come down to the shelter and meet me! I am 10 years old and I weigh 67lbs.

"CINDA" a sweet softie has had a rough ride

here's my MCAS weblink

I am a sweet, sweet girl who has had a bit of a rough ride so far. Despite that, I still love being petted and am a big softy once I get over my shyness. I am 62 lbs and have already been spayed.. Come visit me and you'll fall in love.


"BEAR" handsome Yellow Lab

here's my MCAS weblink

Bear is a handsome gentleman who has had a rough transition of late. Both his humans passed recently, and then he ended up in the shelter. We found out he had a broken tooth, and it is likely that some of his not so friendly behavior was associated with his tooth. The tooth is now fixed, and we have found out he is a big goofy boy. He is best suited for a home with no other dogs, or a older mellow female may work as well. He is very food motivated, and likes to chase the ball. Imagine that! He is 7 years old and weights 80lbs. Bear is currently in a foster home, please contact He is currently enjoying life in a foster home, please contact the shelter at 503-988-7387 or email more information or to schedule a meeting!

"GOOSE" a silly Pitbull boy

You might say that I can be a Silly Goose at times but I will always be sure to put a smile on your face. Yes, I may look like a tough guy but I am definitely the soft and sweet type. I am looking for an active home and prefer women to men. I am best suited to a household with children at least 10 years and a family who will dedicate to helping me brush up on the basics.

  I am looking for a home as the only pet. I have good house manners and love my Kong and chew toys. I am about 4 years of age and I weigh 70 lbs. Ask about me today!
