Pets in Portland
Portland, OR is always listed somewhere in the top 10 dog cities but we are a great PET city! We are home to Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital who offers community programs for pet loss support, animal assisted therapy, canine and feline blood banks, and a stray and wild-life fund. Most cities are lucky to have one animal shelter-we have a coalition (Oregon Human Society, Multnomah County Animal Shelter, Clackamas County Dog Services, Bonnie L Hays, Humane Society of SW Washington, and the Cat Adoption Team). There are numerous rescue organizations and non-profits that work tirelessly to improve the welfare for animals in our community. The Veterinary Surgical Center of Portland is proud to work with a number of these organizations. We provide discounted surgical services and actively participate in fundraising events for the following rescue groups and shelters.
Golden Bond Rescue
Hi everybody! My name is Annie (#2930) and I’m about 12 years old. I’ve been bounced around lately through no fault of mine, but I’m an easy going girl and it doesn’t bother me too much. Foster mom says I have excellent manners, I never bark, and I love tennis balls. I do great with other dogs and I met some young kids yesterday and did great with them too. I may not be 100% Golden, but I am where it counts. I love people and attention and foster mom says I’m a velcro girl. I had a small lump removed from my back that was suspicious, but the vet said it didn’t look like a bad thing and I’m fine. I get my stitches out in two days and then I’m ready to find my forever family. I really would like a family of my own for Christmas.
From Annie’s foster mom: Annie is just a sweet little doll. She is a very easy dog to live with and just wants attention, lots of it. If you ignore her, she will gently put her front paws in your lap so you can reach her easier for pets. It is unknown if Annie has been spayed and at her age it would be a difficult surgery to find out.
Adoption fee: $200 plus $35 microchip fee
Annie is being fostered in Eugene, OR
Golden Bond Rescue is pleased to introduce Fernando (#2913), a small mixed breed from China. Fernando is settling in well in his foster home where he is working on leash manners, “sit”, “come”, and “off”. Fernando has already mastered the doggie door. He’s food motivated which helps with his training. Fernando hasn’t had any accidents in the house, likes his crate, and has a sweet nature.
‘Nando is just one very special and cool little guy. He would LOVE to be in a home with another dog who wants to play–or can have lots of playdates or lots of dog park time or with someone who will give him lots and lots of exercise. His fur is soooooooo soft–he doesn’t chew up things, loves toys, doesn’t counter crawl. He does try to jump up, but not to push you over…just to say HI…and is easily discouraged from that…he is a total lover, eats his food very nicely and takes treats very nicely…barks only for a real reason…. an all around great dog.
Fernando is being fostered in the Corvallis, OR area
The Pixe Project
Vroom Vroom!! Get your engines started and get ready to go-with me as your co-driver of course. My name is Hemi and I am an adorable 5 year old Chihuahua weighing in at 9lbs. You see, I am from Texas where we just love our NASCAR. After a slight mishap on the racetrack, Pixie took me in and got me all fixed up, and now I am feeling good! I still have just the same amount of horsepower as before, but I do now have some incontinence issues that require me to wear a little doggy diaper. But there is only one requirement- it has to match our driving uniforms of course! I still love to wrestle with my smaller doggy friends like never before! I even don’t mind being around those kitties. Since I can be a little shy with new people, I would need to be in an owned home with no kids. Though I can be a bit slow to warm up, with a few yummy hotdogs and some patience, I quickly become your new lap snuggling partner! And then it’s back to winning the race and your heart! So strap in and fill out an application today and we can get the wheels turning, and set us off on another adventure. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $250.
