"HARLEY" voted best head tilt

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Harley is a white and black female Pitbull mix. She is approximately 4 years old is a about 49lbs. Harley's previous owner had a lot of good things to say about her. A few of those things are that she is housetrained, crate trained, knows some good manners, is cuddly, playful and loves to take walks. They also reported that she is easily startled by noises, and needs a slow introduction to other dogs, and shouldn't have any cats in her new home. The shelter is recommending that if she has children in her new family that they be over the age of 10 because of her sensitive personality. Harley is not settling well in the shelter environment, is shutdown in her kennel and not eating very much. *****She is currently in a different area and is looking for that special someone to ADOPT or FOSTER her. Please come down and meet her!



"NORMAN" voted best underbite

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Hi there! My name is Norman and I'm looking for a loving home. Unfortunately my owner dropped me off here and I'm not sure why. I didn't think I did anything wrong, but I guess I was just too scared of the kids. If I could tell you about my dream home, it would have no kids under 6 years old. They are just a little too rambunctious for me and sometimes I find them just too overwhelming. My owner did have wonderful things to say about me otherwise though. I am a wonderful lap dog and am completely happy just taking a little snooze there. I am housetrained and am working on my crate training. I know how to sit and come too! I'm a very relaxed little guy that enjoys the occasional playtime with my squeaky toys, but can be shy with strangers. I am about years old and weigh pounds. Please come down and visit me today!


"ABBY" gentle lovable pitmix

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Hey everybody! My name is Abby and I'm the sweetest girl around. I ended up at the shelter as a stray and family hasn't come to find me yet. Not sure why, I mean they took the time to paint my pretty nails. I guess I'm now looking for a new, loving family. The shelter staff thinks that I am the sweetest girl. I love to give kisses and I even know how to sit and shake already. I am also very gentle and polite. Please come down to the shelter and take me home today! I am about 2 years old and weigh 50 pounds.




"GRANGER" sweetheart Walker hound boy

I'm a mellow sweetie hound boy who needs someone like Angela L to adopt me ;)
Seriously, I am a very nice guy!

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Are you looking for a good ole' boy? My name is Granger and though I'm not old, I am a good boy! A city boy I am not. I would love to be a part of any family that has property where I can be a true hound. I enjoy adventures and going for long walks where my nose can just take over. Good fencing is a must with a hound, as we are known to be curious wanderers. If you are looking for a quiet boy, than please pass me by, as I am a great conversationalist. I am truly a great dog that has a very sweet and loving demeanor with good manners. I know how to sit and shake already! I am about years old and weigh pounds. Please come and meet me today!

hi there, were you looking for me?


? who is that strange looking plastic guy in the window?

oh, I am so handsome!

"MCAS Dogs really need your help

 Somehow.... the blogpost detailing this was  eliminated on the photoblog site, but here's a shorter version of the same.

The MCAS dogs REALLY NEED your help these days!
Multnomah County Animal Services is an open intake shelter and takes in all the stray animals - regardless of size, age, history, breed, or appearance, and they also take dogs from the public who have no other place to bring their pets when they cannot keep them.
There are many ways that you can help them!

- Donate $$$
- whatever you can, small or large amounts or an endowment could really rock their world and bring them into a better space!
- Dolly's Fund for medical needs for the dogs and cats
Shelter staff needs  MCAS shelter is supported by county funds - and it only supports the bare bones -
 - a new Staff position is needed to help with Training and Enhancement - so the longterm dogs esp are
not going nuts being contained.
Building fund!  or adding some air- conditioning to the dogs kennels please! 

- Volunteer  (and if you are a past volunteer who loves the dogs and can help them, please come visit)  Dogs aren't political - and need your love and help
-  Be a Volunteer Foster Home -  so many medium and large dogs especially linger forever and it's not fair to is such a rewarding experience to foster a shelter dog
- many dogs just need a foster for a medical need or a just respite from the noisy kennels.

"GOMER" LOVE this Dog! BIG chubby shepherd/hound mix

Please give me a bit of time to sniff around and just chill out when I first meet you?   please don't expect my immediate interest in you?  (ps - this is polite behavior for the dog, so give me a chance)
Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 

Hello there! My name is Gomer and I'm looking for a new home. I am a sweet, but very sensitive boy that needs a quiet, yet active family. I'm quite laid back, but really enjoy going for walks. As you can see I'm in a little need of a diet and exercise plan, so walks should be lots of fun! The nice people that found me said I like to play tug and I ride well in the car. I am also independent and will need a home with kids over the age of 12 years, due to my sensitivities. Please come down and meet your soulmate today! I am about 4 years old and weigh a hefty 127 pounds.


yes, my butt is about 20 times wider than this, but I'm trying!

"ROCKY" yes! I can reach the top of the stairs! smart and athletic young Pitbull

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

I may be in a quieter area - so please make sure to ask about me!
Hello, my name is Rocky! I would like to start off by saying that I am one handsome dude! My shelter friends have some good things to say about me. I am athletic, have learned some great obedience skills, and will melt your heart with my eye contact. Sadly I have been waiting for a new venue since April. My perfect adopter would have no children under 10, loves the outdoors and can provide me with plenty of phyiscal and mental outlets. Once I have been exercised I don't mind cuddling on the couch and have so much potential to be someone's rock star dog. I am food motivated and have been friendly with other dogs too. If you are interested in meeting me, please email to arrange a meeting. I am a year old and weigh 49 pounds

"CARLITO" I am a cool little guy. I need a wellness check 2x a year please

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
In an MCAS Foster Home!

here's my Mcas weblink

Hi there! My name is Carlito. I was previously named Hewitt, but my foster parents thought I needed a name that better suits my energetic, cute personality. I may be nine years old, but age is just a number. I wake up every morning and do a happy dance. I love walks and hanging out in the yard sunbathing. I also enjoy the company of the dogs and dog savvy cat in my foster home. We get along great! I know basic commands and answer better to my new name than my old one. I do have a noticeable heart murmur that developed sometime in the last three years, but it isn't slowing me down. Taking me to the vet every six months for a senior wellness check will be especially important for me, so you can enjoy me for as long as possible! I just had a dental and only have my molars left, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying high quality kibble. I'm not a big fan of wet food. My favorite thing in the world is a cozy blanket to nuzzle in and you by my side. If you are interested in an all-around great chihuahua boy, Please contact the foster coordinator at to set up a time to meet me. I can't wait to meeting you!

"BIG GUS" aka " CHUBBY" I got beat up in a bar fight - but I am NOT a mean guy

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services

here's my Mcas weblink 

Hi there. My shelter name is Big Gus. I got into a scuffle with another dog at the pub and took the worst of it but I'm a pretty nice guy who is very people friendly. As you can see, I love my food a little to much so I need a health conscious owner who will help me lose some weight through diet and by building up my tolerance for exercise. I'll be happier, healthier and live longer

"JED" jolly young American Shelter Dog mix

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink

Hey everybody! Are you looking for a super fun friend? That's me! My name is Jed and I am a jolly ole' lug. I really love people and can't wait to show you my affections. Sometimes I get a little too excited and actually slap myself in the face with my own tail. It's a little embarrassing, let's not talk about it. The nice people that found me said that I have lived with children and I did wonderful with them. I am also very active and will need my new family to understand the exercise I will need to keep me happy. I should not be in a home with cats though. They are just a little too tempting for me. My best match would be a same size respectful female dog or I would also love to be the center of your attention. Shelter life is really overwhelming for me, so please take me out of my kennel so I can show you my true colors. I am about 2 years old and weigh 71 pounds.
