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

Clark #2767

Hi there Golden Bond fans! My name is Clark (#2767) and I am one of Candy’s 7-month old puppies.  Like the others, I am named after a sweet food, though in my case it’s even better:  I am named after the Clark Bar (chocolate and peanut butter) while my litter mates are Coconut, Cotton Candy, Cocoa, Cinnamon and so on…you get the picture?    I have only been in America for ten days and I am having so much fun!  My foster family has a big box of squeaky toys that I can squeak over and over again.   They also have lots and lots of balls.  Boy, do I love running after balls and bringing them back!  I also like to chew on Nylabones, antlers and anything else.  These people are a bit fussy — they don’t let me chew Legos or other kids’ toys.  Picky, picky, I say!  What’s the difference?  They all taste the same.

I like the dogs in my foster home, especially that young one who likes to play chase and wrestle.  It’s been kind of rainy but rolling in the mud and grass is a pretty fun activity.  I am a very good boy about getting dried and cleaned before I am allowed back inside.

I like to eat my dog food and treats like bananas, apples and dog cookies. I know how to SIT and am learning DOWN, OFF, STAY, and COME.  I like to be near my people and dog friends.  I  like the people to be outside when I’m out there with the other dogs.  When the people are not home, I am happy in my crate with something good to chew like a Kong or a bully stick.

From foster family:   Clark is a healthy 40 pound 7-month old pup. Clark will likely be around 60 pounds when he’s full-grown. He was born in China on August 7, 2016 to a Golden Retriever named Candy who came to Golden Bond along with Clark and her five other pups.   Clark is very much a velcro pup, staying near his foster mom most of the time.

Clark has met children and is comfortable with calm children ages ten and up. He seems anxious around young, unpredictable kids.  He meets dogs comfortably and is active and curious about everything outdoors.  He has not been exposed to cats but would likely adjust to them in his new home.  Clark sleeps happily in his crate all night.  He also stays in his crate (with a chewey) if his people are away for a while.

Clark is a very sweet boy who is adapting quickly to life in a family home. He would like his “forever” family to be home more than they are away.  He will enjoy another playful dog and lots of time doing outside activities with his people.

If Clark sounds like a good fit for you, please contact Golden Bond and ask about him. He is a sweet boy!

Adoption fee:  $750 plus $35 microchip fee

Fortune #2794

Introducing Fortune (#2894) from China.  Fortune is a precious bundle of mischievous energy.  He’s smart and should learn quickly but will need an active family who can keep him busy. Counter-surfing is a favorite activity of Fortune’s and he can grab and shred things quickly!

Fortune is very sweet and affectionate and gets along with other dogs. With lots of regular exercise and some training, this little cookie will make a wonderful addition to someone’s home.

The Pixe Project


Max is an affectionate and mellow 14-year-old male who is looking for a new home due to his former owners move to an assisted living facility.  On a rainy day, Max loves snuggle up comfortably in your lap, a sofa back or in his bed where he can watch the world go by. On a sunny day he loves to stretch out and soak in the rays, or stealthy hunt yard mice to keeps those unwanted visitors away!

Max grew up in a home with a large dog and another cat, but tends to enjoy his owner’s company over the other pets.  He is really fond of people and loves to meet and greet visitors.  He eats and drinks well and has good litter box habits.  He’s primarily an indoor cat but will let his owners know when he wants out to explore a bit.

If you can offer Max a new loving and safe home or would like some more information, please contact Kevin Paff at or via text/calls at 360-601-0136.
