"LILY" cutie teenage Chi mix -can you help sponsor needed surgery?


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink

Hi there folks, my name is Lily! I am a young chihuahua mix looking for a new home. I came to the shelter after being in a few different homes. Now I am looking for a quiet home with older, respectful children who will allow me to have space when I need it. Currently I have a medical condition called a liver shunt. This is repairable with surgery, but the surgery will cost $2600 and the shelter would be happy to cover half of it. I hope there is an adopter out there who would be able to cover the other half, or maybe some folks who will sponsor my surgery? Please come down and meet me today!

"DAISY" cheerful petite mature Minpin


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink

Hello, my name is Daisy! I am one cute old lady with a cheerful attitude and still a lot of life ahead of me. I'm really looking for that special someone who likes to go for walks on sunny days, is content lounging on the couch for a movie marathon and wants a friend like me! My new family should have no children under 16 in their daily lives because I get a little nervous when someone tries to take my food away. The shelter can give you good tips on how to make me feel more secure in this area. Please come down and meet me. I am around 10 years old and weigh 8 pounds

 


 
 
 

"GUS" SWEETIE fawn colored Pitbull - needs fresh start


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 
I'm in a different area in the kennels, please ask to meet me!

Hey everybody! My name is Gus and I'm looking for an active home that can keep up with my training and give me a good exercise regiment. I am a super sweet guy enjoys playtime and giving sloppy kisses. Unfortunately I have gotten myself into trouble and the shelter is requiring that we attend reward based training classes together and that children in the home are over 12 years old. I could be the best breed ambassador out there with a stable family and some guidance. I would do best in a home with dogs of the same size or no more than 20 pounds less than me. I hope this doesn't deter you because I am a great dog that just hasn't had the best start in life. Please come and meet my handsome mug today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 60 pounds.

"RAMBO" awesome young Great Dane mix

 

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink  (adoption pending 4/25)

Hello World! The shelter named me Rambo because I'm a young rambunctious and enthusiastic kind of guy. I'm about years old and weigh around 70lbs. They say I am part Great Dane because of my structure and when I strike a pose it's regal like a Dane. I'm looking for a home with someone who would exercise me daily by running, playing fetch or doing other fun activities. I also need to learn some manners, so going to an obedience class would be a great way for us to learn together. I'm not the type to laze away on the couch or be in a home with kids under 13 or frail people because I'm strong and still jump like a puppy but for the right home I will be a lot of fun.

 
 
 

 
 
 

"TAFFY" sensitive sweet Chihuahua

ADOPTED!
Apr 25, 2015
Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink
Hello there! My name is Taffy and I'm a sensitive lady looking for a quiet home. It's been overwhelming for me here at the shelter and I am having a hard time adjusting to all of this new stuff. Unfortunately my owner could no longer care for me and I have found myself here waiting for another loving home. The shelter staff has been told that I used to help my owner by alerting him of an on-coming seizure. Isn't that awesome? Anywho, I am looking for a relaxed home where I can relax and enjoy the good life. For that reason the shelter is asking for only families with children 11 years or older ask about me. I find it hard to trust new people, but once I do I am quite the clown and also very sweet and gentle. I hope you find me as endearing as my friends here do. Please come down and meet me today! I am about 6 years old and weigh 12 pounds.

Do you like to Chacha. Well that's my name even if I don't dance. I'm a 8 year old little guy who only weighs 5.4lbs. looking for a special home without kids or big dogs to scare me.

I'm in a different area of the kennels. Please ask to meet me!

Hey there, my name is Alaska but some people call me Ally for short. I am a mature lady who is looking for that special someone who likes to go for walks or cuddle on the couch on those rainy days. My previous family said that I am housetrained, like to play fetch, and already know a bunch of tricks. My adopters should have no small animals, a secure fenced yard, no children under 12, and are interested in using positive training methods to help me become an upstanding citizen. Don't let these stipulations scare you away, I am a sweet and easy going girl who just needs a human friend to trust. Please come and meet me, my shelter friends are happy to tell you how charming I am. I am around 3 1/2 years old and weigh 59 pounds--
 

 



"CHARLOTTE" full of kisses



Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 
ps - I'm in a different area of the kennels, please make sure to ask about me!

My name is Charlotte and although I'm not like the spider in Charlotte's web, I feel a little entagled. I have a microchip but the shelter couldn't find my owner so I need to get a new one quick because shelter life is not for me. I'm sensative and don't like my neighbors barking. Best for situation for me is to have a slow and careful introduction with only male same sized or larger canine family members. Otherwise I'd rather be the solo canine in the house. The shelter also recommends if kids are in my new home they are 12 years or older because I don't like to be hugged or have my mouth looked at. The funny part though is I'm sure full of kisses. I'm a sweet girl about 3 years old and weigh about 47lbs.

here's my Mcas weblink 

Hello, my name is Toby! I am a handsome gentleman who is looking for a new family. My shelter friends want you to know that I have a history of having seizures and that my adopters should have a good relationship with their vet to ensure I remain healthy. I was known as the mascot at the apartment complex I lived in because I loved to greet everybody who visited. Another dog would be a fun companion however I have been reported to chase cats. I am housetrained, like to play fetch, enjoy going for walks and also can be found curled up on the couch or bed for a nice nap. Please come down and meet me. I am around 7 1/2 years old and weigh 90 pounds.

"TIMONE" big Boston Terrier



Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 

Hello from Timone! That's me. I'm a six year old, 36lb. Boston Terrier. I'm looking for a special home with a securely fenced yard where there are no cats or other dogs. I love adult humans but I am looking for a home with kids over the age of 10 years and no cats or other small animals. Because I'm a Boston, I'll need to wear a harness and go for shorter walks in the summertime so I don't overheat. If you think I could be the center of your world, come meet me!
 

 
  

 
 

"FIGARO - lovable insecure doxie/chi mix

 
Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
In an MCAS Foster home
 
here's my Mcas weblink  
id # 566183

Figaro is currently in foster care. If you are interested in him, contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at alix.womack@multco.us or 503-988-6247 to set up a time to meet him :) He is a 3 year old, 7lb Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who loves to be held and sleep in bed with his person. He is house trained and crate trained and walks well on a leash. He is fine with other respectful dogs and would like a home with kids 12 and older, or no kids. We don't know how he is with cats. He loves to play fetch with soft toys and hardly ever barks. He is scared of men, so he would do best in a home with no men. He is very fearful of strangers in his home or car, but does fine when he meets them on walks or at their homes. Ask about Figaro today!

"SKIPPY" a bouncy Jack Russell mix

I'd love someone nice who appreciates my silly bouncing energy. I'm a really good dog, and just need a chance to relax without someone demanding that I do so, ya know? (ps, people can be quite demanding with us nervous dog types and your behavior just drives us crazy....chill out, please)

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 

Yippee I'm Skippy, I'm a 7 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix. I'm 17.5lbs of energy and I'd like some sort of a job to do, like maybe keeping thieving squirrels out of the yard. The shelter isn't quite my cup of tea so I'm a little anxious and need some time to settle, but I'm a really nice guy. Come meet me and let's see if we click.


 
 
 


 

"LAKOTA SIOUX" pretty Lab/pitmix


Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
 
here's my Mcas weblink 

Are you looking for the perfect companion to add to your life? My name is Lakota Sioux and I hope you pick me for that honor. I am the sweetest, most gentle lady here at the shelter. I have no idea how I have ended up here. This is no place for a princess like me. The shelter staff doesn't know too much about me, but they can say that I enjoy playing a good game of tug, enjoy walks, and have the sweetest disposition. My new home should not have any small animals, cats, or other dogs though. They are a little too interesting for my liking. Personally, I think all other animals stink. Good thing I love people! Please come down and meet me today! I am years 7 old and weigh 60 pounds
