Come Meet Multnomah County Animal Services's Pets

MCAS is implementing new tools to facilitate a virtual adoption process, enabling community members to view adoptable pets online, submit adoption applications online, meet virtually with an adoption counselor, and arrange a contactless pickup process at the Troutdale shelter.

At this time, community members aren’t able to visit the shelter to browse adoption kennels, and adoptions are limited to the virtual process.
