Emergency adoption special

Multnomah County Animal Services is asking for the public’s help adopting or fostering cats and kittens. The shelter is hosting an emergency adoption special. Cats ages six months or older will cost just $12. As a bonus, Multnomah County Animal Services will offer free cat food to anyone who adopts a cat that's been waiting for a home for 30 days or more. This offer will be available Thursday, May 28 through Sunday, May 31. 

Currently, the shelter is at 94 percent capacity with more cats expected as kitten season (between late spring and early autumn) gets underway. With sunny skies anticipated this week and into the weekend, Multnomah County Animal Services is urging the public to visit the shelter in Troutdale to take advantage of this special.

Multnomah County Animal Services cares for approximately 7,000 animals each year, 100 percent of which are from the local community. As the only open door shelter in Portland, Multnomah County Animal Services is a national leader with record-high save rates. In order to sustain our success in saving the lives of local animals, Animal Services relies on the Portland community to adopt, foster, volunteer license, and donate.
