"ISABELE" lovely Beagle mix

Hi there. I hope you are looking to take me home! I am a very sweet and super sensitive girl looking for a gentle home to take me home and keep me safe. I will happily cuddle into your lap or squeeze against your feet, but I can be fearful and will need your patience as I learn to trust. 

 A busy household may not be the best fit for me. I am not extreme and will probably greet you with a happy tail and soft brown eyes if you come to meet me. I am about 6 years of age and I weigh a thick 29lbs. Here's my MCAS weblink


"FREDDY" cool Jack Russell mix!

Hello, my name is Freddy! I arrived at the shelter as a stray dog however my friends here think its pretty obvious that I have been a loved member of someone's family. Sadly they haven't come looking for me and now I'm searching for a new home with no children under 8. I have been social with people, calm and kenneled with another small dog.



Please come down to the shelter and meet me! I am around 7 years old and weigh 15 pounds. Here's my MCAS weblink

"LILY" lovable happy sensitive Pitbull teenager!

Hi the shelter named me Lily, after the young daughter in Modern Family. I have to say I am not as saucy as that young lady. I am really a congenial youngster looking for some support and guidance since I am frankly on the shy side. 



 The shelter is asking that we take reward based classes together to help me gain confidence and poise. I like this idea so much, it will get us working together and I will gain so much confidence! I am around 7 months old and weigh 36 lbs. Here's my MCAS weblink

"GWENDOLYN" chubby lovable Min PIN

Are you looking for a little bit of love to add to your home? Well I have MORE than enough to offer and then some! 




 I have been a calm and well behaved resident here at the shelter but I am a miniature pinscher and our breed is known for their feisty nature at times. I am looking for a home with kids over the age of 8 years and likely a feline free home is best. I have gotten along with other same sized canine roommates. I am about 7 years of age and I weigh 23lbs. Ask about me today! Here's my MCAS weblink

MCAS Cats for Adoption!



All the Multnomah County Animal Shelter Cats and Dogs on "Adoption" are spay/neutered, microchipped, licensed, and vaccinated, and more before they go to their new homes.
PLEASE  spay/neuter and license/microchip your pets, so that more of the lovely cats and dogs that come into open-intake shelters like MCAS (or any shelter) as "Lost/Found animals" can find their way back  to their homes again.

"WILLIAM" the boy is back...(guess William didn't like the horses...)

Hello, my name is William! As you can tell by my photo I am handsome guy! I am beloved by the shelter staff and volunteers, but I've been here way too long and need a home of my own. The ideal home would not have cats or small animals, no dogs under 40 pounds or children under 12. The great news is that if I am provided with proper guidance, lots of food and some much needed TLC then you will be rewarded with a loyal, affectionate and well behaved companion! My heart is HUGE! Please come down to the shelter and meet me, so you can see for yourself! If you can't adopt, but are willing to foster me, please call Ann for more info: 503-789-4561. I am around 7 years old and weigh a skinny 62 pounds.

"GRACIE" Big TALL lovely Lab mix!

I am one of those once in a lifetime dogs. The kind that steps into your home and heart and never leaves. I am looking for a home that will keep me til the end of my time on earth. I am well behaved, friendly with all I have met, calm, and extremely loving to people.

I am looking for a home as the only dog. I am in the best years of my life and hoping to find a home who will support me with vet care, daily walks, and lots of good times.

I am just under 10 years of age and I weigh a substantial 101lbs. Ask about me today! Here's my MCAS weblink

"BRUNO" - loving Pitbull

Bruno is house-trained, neutered, and micro chipped.  He loves children and wants to watch TV right next to them.  
Bruno is affectionate, high energy, strong, and loves to play fetch.  His perfect home would include a well matched canine companion or with someone who works from home or is home a lot.  He would love to accompany his owner anywhere he goes.  Riding in the car is one of his favorite activities.  He truly is happiest being right by his people. 

Since he has lived on a farm for the past year, he would need some work on the leash.  However, Bruno is up for whatever you decide to do. 

Bruno is approximately 7 years old and weighs a nicely sized 65lbs.   He came to us as a foster after being hit by a car and has spent the last year as a part of our family.  Bruno’s injuries have healed but he appreciates the benefits of joint supplements and pain management if he has had a physically active day.

Bruno has been living with three dog siblings and has played with children and dogs of family members.  Cats are not recommended. 

Please call 503-558-8088 for more information or email

"CHAKITA" & "EVA" lots of Chihuahua bonded love!

Chakita and Eva are a bonded pair of chihuahua's that ended up in the shelter after their owner passed away. They were very scared and took a long time to warm up to a few people. They will need a quiet, adult only home that will allow them to settle in and take things easy.




They both required a lot of dental work, and have only a few teeth left between them! The shelter would like to see them stay together, so they are a 2 for 1 adoption fee! Chakita is 14 yrs old and Eva is 7 yrs old. They both weight around 7lbs. Here is the weblink

"JACK" bouncy, fun Min Pin mix

Hey everybody! I am a feisty little fellow looking for a fine forever home! I may seem like the perfect size for grandma or grandpa's lap, but I am not ready for the slower pace just yet! I am athletic and energetic and full of bouncy fun!

I know I look "big" in this photo...that's a little dog "ego thing"!



I will need continued education and socialization and the shelter will require that we take reward based classes as part of my adoption. I am about 1 year of age and I weigh just over 9lbs. Ask about ME today! Here's my MCAS weblink

"LACEY" fabulous Beagle/Bassett mix!

Hellooooooooooooooooo! Have you ever owned a hound? If you are looking to adopt me, loving hounds and their vocal ways is a must. I may be compact, but I am a big and active dog in a little squatty body. I would do best in a home that keeps me physically active and wants to invest in reward based training together. 



 My experience with cats is unknown but a dog savvy cat who will stand up for themselves may be a good match. I am friendly but need a little time to adjust and get to know you for things like bathing and wiping off my feet. Your patience and my sweet nature will be a good match! I am just over a year of age and I weigh a thick 35lbs. Ask about me toooooooooooooooooodayy!  Here's my MCASweblink
