"TRISTA" elderly terrier mix

UPDATE  Feb 13, 2016  "Trista is now living in a loving forever Volunteer MCAS Hospice Foster Home  - where she will continue to enjoy life and not worry about finding any new home again! 
YAY! for MCAS Volunteers and the MCAS shelter
for caring about these old dogs who come into the shelter:)

Sometimes, old age isn't "pretty" but I am glad that I am still around to meet people, smell the fresh air, and get some gentle exercise, and good quality care.  I'm a cool little dog.

Hello there! My name is Trista! Are you one of those special humans who wants to help a mature dog? Well here I am seeking an empty lap to spend my final days in. I am at least 14 years old and have a full voice to sing my song. My joints are not as strong as they once were, I have some lumps, bumps, and some skin irritation. My shelter friends have let me spend some quality time in an office and they report that I mostly keep to myself but also get anxious when no one is in the room with me. The shelter is not quite sure how this will transfer over into a real home but it would likely be best for me to have a new family who is home often to keep me company. Any children or other animals will need to be respectful of my space and frail body. If you are interested in meeting me please stop by the shelter or email

Hey everybody! My name is Stout and I'm aptly named for my short physique. I am a very personable little dude, but I do ask that you take me on a couple dates before we get too personal. When I'm comfortable I enjoy giving kisses and getting a nice belly rub. I also like to stay active, so I hope you like going for walks. Oh, and my very favorite thing in the world is my tennis ball. If you have one of those for me, we will make fast friends. I am asking that I be the only animal in your home though. I find everybody a little uncomfortable for my presence and let's face it…I want to be the only spoiled child in your life. If I sound like a great match for your lifestyle, please come and meet me today! I am about 3 years old and weigh 58 pounds.

animal # 575147

Hello, my name is Moe! Are you looking for a goofy dog as your new companion? I won't require much exercise however some regular walks around the block, game of fetch and a diet to shed a few pounds is recommended! I am housetrained, ride well in cars, walk nicely on leash and love adult humans! A home without children under the age of 16 is required as sadly my previous family had to give me up because I was not good with their children. Please ask about me. I am around 5 years old and I weigh 11 pounds

check out my playful video! 


"CHIEF" the best dog!

I know, you keep hoping to meet me, but then you put it off, figuring the time isn't right for a dog?  but maybe the timing really is right?  I don't know why I'm still here, but no worries, everyone loves me, and is happy to see me while I wait for a good home again

My name is Chief. I am a handsome, calm older guy who is looking for a patient home with low traffic. Although I like to take life easy, I love to go on walks and I am a gentleman on my leash. Frequent walks will help me to lose some of the winter weight I have put on! The shelter is requiring that I go to a home with children 13 or older due to previous inability to cope with young children in my home. I have history of being intolerant of some other dogs, so any introductions would have to be done slowly and safely ;)  I love belly rubs, and once I warm up to people I am their buddy for life. Hope to see you here! I am 10 years old and weigh 79 pounds.


BUNNIES! all around town

"MOON" Boxer boy

Moon doggie :)
 An amazing dog waiting for an amazing new home!
Available for Adoption with Oregon Humane Society!

animal #180324

I have a video! Meet Moon, an athletic, active dog looking to be your next work out buddy. While he has been loving his runs during his stay at OHS, he also loves to play with toys, so a game of fetch in his very own fenced backyard would be perfect for him too! Don’t get us wrong, he loves to cuddle up with his people too, and his goofy, slobbery Boxer antics will keep you laughing for years to come. We think he would do best with someone who has owned Boxers before, and in an adult-only home (no apartments please!) without other dogs or cats (he wants to be your one and only). Come meet Moon and learn why so many of us here have fallen in love with him. Moon will receive a training consultation prior to adoption to discuss the training that will help him be successful.

"LUCKY" great companion dog

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

animal # 574246
Hello, my name is Lucky! I know, real original right? Well, we can't all pick our names. I am one of those goofy guys who is looking for something stable. A home without children under 12 that can provide me with some exercise and then cuddle time on the couch! Due to my life on the road I'm used to walking around all day and sleeping outside so its time for the luxurious things in life. My new family should know that I was adopted recently but sadly it wasn't the right fit because I was getting very anxious when being left alone. The perfect match is someone who works from home and can help me feel safe by myself. I frankly need my new owner to have the resources to help me with my anxiety. Are you up for my challenges? Please ask about me! I am around a year and a half and weigh 58 pounds.

"YAHOO" zippy Rat Terrier mix

sorry, no zippy action pics of me that day, maybe next time! 
I'm told that I  was "lucky to get any non blurred pics" ...

Wooooooosh! Did you see that? That was me! My name is Yahoo. It is the word you will think I am saying in my head as I zip around and play! I am an active guy who is looking for a home to help me stay active and healthy, but also help me explore life and gain a better understanding of novel things and environments. It may take me a second to get comfortable, but when I do, look out-I can't stop having fun! I would much rather be on the ground and playing than being picked up, but occasionally I will cuddle up on your lap for a second as I take a break. My new owners should be ready to grab the leash more than once a day to keep me happy. I hope you will come have fun with me soon! I am 1.5 years old and weigh 14 pounds.

"SAMMY" my favorite local shelter CAT :)

I hope someone fabulous adopts Sammy...he is more like a big gentle dog who just wants to hide behind you when the going gets tough
Available for Adoption with Oregon Humane Society!

here is my OHS  weblink 
animal #183489

I have a video! Sammy is a whole bundle of love! This big guy is looking for a new place to call his own. Sammy is a bit on the heavy side and needs some help to lose weight through some TLC, dieting, and exercise. He also has some special needs that will require him to be indoors only. Sammy has a whole lot to love and even more to offer! He’s quiet but sweet and enjoys gentle affection. Sammy has been around other cats before and may do alright with another mellow feline. He doesn’t seem to enjoy the company of dogs or young children as he’s a pretty laid back fellow. Any new introductions should be done slowly and thoughtfully. Sammy has been diagnosed with diabetes and will require long-term medical care. A medical consult is included prior to adoption

"ELVIS" cuddley chubby insecure - pitbull needs a good friend

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
Elvis is  in a MCAS foster home

animal # 573912

Hi there! My name is Elvis and I'm the king of rump rubs! Gosh I enjoy having mine rubbed. I hope you like giving rubs because if you don't I will rub my booty on you until you do! HAHA! I can be a little shy at first, but that's the key to my heart. I love sticks and tennis balls but can chew them up so hard rubber balls are much better. Snuggles are awesome too! I can't wait to curl up next to my people by the warm fireplace. I am a pretty calm boy for the most part, but will need to still get some good daily exercise and playtime, cause I could lose a few pounds. I am working on some fear issues I have with my kennel and I am a little nervous around strange men. However, I do warm up to the men in my life with slow and possitive introductions. I came to the shelter with some missing hair and am currently being treated for infections in my ears. This could be caused by an allergy to fleas, food, or something in the environment. You will need to speak with your Veterinarian about the best treatment for me. I think I would do best in a home with kids 10 and older. If you're ready for a bubbly, cuddlebug then come and meet me today! I am about 5 years old and weigh 62 pounds. I am currently in foster care. To set up a time to meet me, email at




"DEAN" lab/boxer mix

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 
animal # 574588

Hello, my name is Dean! I am a goofy boy who already knows some good tricks! My new family should be able to provide me with plenty of exercise, have plenty of time to spend with me, and don't mind a vocal dog. I've been a little insecure of strangers so my shelter friends are asking that any children in my home be 16 or older, and that my family use positive training methods to boost my confidence. As you can see, my hair coat is a little sparse. With good quality monthly flea control and a good diet, it should return to its former glory. Pretty please ask about me! I am around 5 years old and weigh a slender 70 pounds

"ALBERT UPDATE - video! - easy going Lhasa

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
Albert is now in a MCAS foster home

animal # 573897

Hello, my name is Albert! I am currently in foster care taking a rest from the shelter! I am around 7 years old and weigh 19.6 pounds. I am a sweet, mostly healthy guy who will need continued vet care since I will need stuff like dental care and regular checkups :) I can't see as well as I used to - so a home that doesn't do a lot of re-decorating and no stairs is ideal! Despite my health concerns I have a heart of gold, and I'm searching for a companion with a heart of gold. Are you looking for a super laid back kind of guy as a new companion? Well please look no further! To meet me, email my foster mom at or call at 503-528-4683.

"MISO" let's start over! nice Lhasa mix

Miso is a sweet boy looking for a fresh start

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my MCAS weblink 
animal # 574841

Hello, my shelter name is Miso. I came into the shelter as one hot mess. The veterinarian has me on medicine for my skin and ears and they bathed me and shaved me because I was so matted it was just better to start over. I am seeking a quiet home, and the shelter recommends adults only because I am very uncertain about who to trust and a noisy home with kids would probably be too much for me. I would like someone who will give me the time and space I need to settle in and not push me too fast. The shelter feels that I am not really showing my true personality here. I am a 4 year old Lhasa Apso mix and weigh a solid 19lbs. By the way, I like treats.

"MEIKA" quirky, charming, smart - ( mega sized Jack Russel Terrier mix?)

Available for Adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!
Meika is in a MCAS Foster home!

here's my MCAS weblink 
animal # 514101

Are you an active guy who loves Duck Dynasty, going off-roading and spending time with his dog? Then Meika is the perfect dog for you! Meika is a 5 year old, 45lb white and brown spayed female mixed breed dog who is currently in foster care. If you are interested in her, contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at or 503-988-6247 to find out more about her :) Meika is a very loyal and stubborn lady who would be ideal for someone who's single, active, wants to take their dog everywhere, and likes dogs that sleep on the bed :) She is a quirky dog, who is not normal by any means, which just adds to her charm :) She growls a lot, but it's just her way of talking - either because she's playing or being stubborn :) She would like to go on daily runs and then end the day watching football on the couch. She needs an experienced owner who is firm, but gentle and patient. She is very nervous in new situations and with new people, and having an owner that's calm and in charge, helps her relax :) She would do best in a home with kids 12 and older, or no kids. She does well with other, respectful dogs after slow, proper introductions. She is leash reactive to other dogs on walks, especially if she hasn't had her daily exercise yet. Please ask about Meika today :)
