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.

Brandy #3051

Here’s precious Brandy (#3051), a retriever mix who came from a rescue in Texas at the end of 2017 and has been happily living on the coast since then but sadly his owner, due to health conditions, had to give up Brandy and Kiki (#2532).

Brandy is a happy, friendly boy who loves people, has wonderful house manners, walks quite well on a leash, gets along fine with dogs and has lived with cats without a problem. When he sees another dog while on leash, he pulls and barks a bit but mostly because he is eager to go meet the other dog, then he’s fine. He likes to run and play with other dogs and chase a ball when outside, but is calm and quiet inside.  Though he would enjoy living with another pet, it’s okay if it’s not Kiki.

Nora #2991

Hi everybody… I’m Miss Nora (#2991).  Nobody is quite sure what breed I am…but my foster mom says I am just one very happy girl.  And don’t I have the sweetest face ever?
I originally came from South Korea where I was rescued from the meat trade.  But I’ve been living in the US now for awhile and am now living the good life!
I did have heartworm when I first got here, but I’ve been treated for it and am ready for a long and happy life now.
I absolutely love playing with other dogs.  Sometimes I like to just play chase, but sometimes I like to do the rough and tumble play-  it really depends on the dog.  I have been to doggie daycare and I love it! I haven’t been around cats, but I have barked at them if I see them in the front yard and most likely I would chase them given the chance. So best if I’m in a cat free house. And speaking of barking, I rarely bark at all, well except for those pesky cats!
I am totally house trained and I’ve never had an accident in the house–EVER.   Gold star for me!!   I love toys of all kinds, especially nyla bones and antlers.  I like stuffed toys, but if they are fat and fluffy, I will destroy them in no time.  If I have a stuffed toy with minimal stuffing in it, I may eventually chew it up..but I will love playing with it for a long time first!
And I LOVE riding in the car!
I love going for walks, but I’m really awful at being good at it.  I pull big time, especially if I see a cat or squirrel. Because I am such a strong girl, foster mom says it is really important that my new family take me to training classes to help me become a perfect walking or jogging partner.
I haven’t been around kids, but I would probably do  best around older ones, as I sometimes jump up when I’m excited.   Also I can be a little mouthy at times.  But I’ve been working really hard to remember to not do either and foster mom says I’m making great progress.
I don’t mind sharing toys at all. I eat very nicely and never try to steal my foster sister’s food. I also take treats very nicely. I know sit, stay, wait, come and am learning more things all the time.
Foster mom says I am just about the most perfect dog- well except for those walking and jumping things, but I’m getting better all the time.
I would love to be with a family who will give me lots of love and plenty of exercise to keep me happy and tired.And having a canine companion to pal around with would be wonderful. Could it be with you?

The Pixe Project

Miss Ginger Grant at your service! This gorgeous movie star is finally back on land after some time on Gilligan’s Island and am looking for a family of my very own! I am tiny 9 week old Chihuahua mix who right now only weighs about 5lbs. I am still growing, but imagine I won’t get too much more than 12 lbs. Though I have been big in the movies my whole life! Ha! I am a very sweet gal who loves all my adoring fans humans, cats, and dogs alike. In fact, I am in foster with a big 55 lb lab brother who is helping me learn all about dog stuff. Since I will be a full time job while working on my training, I am looking for a family who isn’t gone long work days. And just until I learn some of the basics, an adult only home or kids over 13 who are interested in my training is what I need! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! My foster mom says I am a fast learner and very bright. When she’s not teaching me all about the world, I love running around the backyard, playing with my friends, and of course, getting my summer tanning in! I even enjoying cooling off in the kiddie pool after catching some rays. Overall, I am a cute, social, and friendly gal ready to take over Hollywood! I mean Portland! So fill out an application today and we can be stars together! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $450.
