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

Newton #2984

I am Newton (#2984), a fun-loving, exuberant 2-year-old  who loves life.  I may be a meat-trade survivor, but I positively refuse to dwell on the past.  I love people, both men and women, and get along extremely well with other dogs. I have not been around cats yet, but when I was introduced to chickens I showed only mild interest so cats would probably be okay with me.

I have allergies, common to Goldens, and am on an allergy medicine to quell my itchiness. I get VERY excited when I meet new people, but only because I am so happy to see them.  I am eager-to-learn and have been described as “delightful” and a “smart cookie.”  I am 99% house-broken in my foster home and am quickly learning basic commands.

I am eager to meet my forever person or family.  A loving home, active lifestyle and plenty of affection will make me the happiest pup in the world!  In return, I will do my best to make you happy, too.  Think we can negotiate a deal?

Adoption fee:  $650 plus $35 microchip fee

Maverick #2949

Hi.  My name is Maverick (#2949). I came all the way to Oregon from South Korea. My foster mom says I’m not a Golden. What?!!!  I guess I must be a Shepherd mix and look and act a lot like my English Shepherd foster siblings.

Well, let me tell you . . . I like it here!  I love back scratches and give soft, not-wet kisses. My foster mom calls me her “cutie patutie.” I’m just a baby she says. I do know the words in English come and sit.  (Surprise! I’m bilingual.)  I don’t potty inside and I let someone know when I have to go outside.

I have a BIG DOG bark when I hear something in the woods, but I sound kind of like a baby when I want to play. I am kennel-trained and don’t have a problem spending time alone even though I would prefer to have your company. I walk well on a leash and am trying out the concept of heel.  I am a puppy still so sometimes I get excited and can pull. I will probably knock little people over like children.

I’m small at 46 pounds right now but foster mom says I will be around 50 pounds when I grow up.  She says I always smell so good and my hair is easy to comb.

I get a little too excited sometimes and want to jump on my foster siblings. Some of them move away from my playing when I do this. I’ve only lived here about three weeks now so I will need some basic training time with my new family.

I would love to show you how I like to please and want to be your companion. Thank you for taking time to look at me.

The Pixe Project

Hello everyone! My name is Tris and I am a gorgeous 4 year old German Shepherd. I am a very smart gal with all the basics under my belt. From potty and crate training, to basic obedience classes, I love learning more and am very food motivated. I am currently in the city and there is a lot going on here, and would much prefer a quieter suburb or more rural environment with lots of space to run around and stretch my legs. And also playing my favorite game-fetch! The red ball pictured is my favorite. After a day of activity, I am ready to settle in and cuddle the night away with my favorite human friends over 15. I do enjoy romping around with my doggy pals occasionally and wouldn’t mind another confident dog pal to hang with. Or being your center of attention would be just fine too! I am a sweet intelligent city girl yearning for that country life. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

The Team at VSCP is proud to work with many of our local shelters in the greater Metro community.
