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.

Bubba #3302 *MEETING A FAMILY!*

Howdy!  My name is Bubba (#3302).  I flew in from China on January 12th and have been with my foster family since I arrived.  I have acclimated to home life beautifully.   I love to cuddle, play fetch, and follow my foster parents around the house. I can be in a kennel for a couple of hours, but I would much rather ride in the car with you.  (I am great on car rides and behave very well when left alone in the car.)

I get along wonderfully with my foster brother (a 2-year old Goldendoodle). We like to wrestle until we tire each other out, then we love to snooze for hours. I like to bark at other dogs, but once I meet them and calm down, I am very gentle. I have not been around cats, so I don’t know how I would react to them. I have been around quite a few children and am very friendly with people of all ages. I just want to be petted and loved on; I especially love a good ear scratching!

I could use some lessons on walking on a leash, and since I love food, I can probably be easily trained with some treats.  I am housetrained, do not chew on shoes, know how to sit, and give the BEST snuggles! My foster family says they will be sad to see me go – and I am sure going to miss them — but they are excited for the love and joy I will bring to his forever home.

Benjamin #3303

Hello.  My name is Benjamin (#3303) but my friends just call me Benji.  I came to the United States from China in January. I am a smaller-framed golden who could stand to gain a pound or two. I am very playful, love to take rides in a car, and to play ball. I enjoy being around other dogs even when they are somewhat annoyed with my energy. I need lots of love and have lots of love to give.

I have had little command training, but have many habits that make me “charming” according to my foster family.  I am housebroken, crate-trained, never get on furniture, and seldom bark.  I get quite excited when meeting another dog or person.  I am learning to sit, halt, and stay and walk/heel while on a leash with a front-clip harness. I love running around the yard and taking long walks. I am anxious to please and am beginning to settle down.

While I am currently exhibiting some behaviors that can be attributed to anxiety (you’d understand if you knew about my life in China), my foster mom thinks that once I find a stable home with a canine companion who loves to play as much as I do, these symptoms will subside.

I have many little quirks that I hope you will think make me endearing. For example, in the morning, I love to be vigorously rubbed after coming out of my crate and in the evening, I love to cuddle up in my foster mom’s lap while she reads a book or watches television.

If your home is ready to give and receive lots of love, I think we’d get along great.
