MCAS reports record adoptions in December

An “Operation Silent Night” promotion conducted by Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) in December was anything but quiet: nearly 300 dogs and cats found forever homes for the holidays. While just short of MCAS’s goal of having a completely empty shelter by New Year’s Eve, December 2014 was the most successful month for adoptions the shelter has seen in years.

MCAS Director Mike Oswald praised the community for stepping up, and encouraged ongoing involvement with the shelter. “We hope to keep up the momentum in 2015, with folks continuing to visit the shelter in Troutdale and adopting, fostering, and using the many services we have to offer.” Learn more at
