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
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.

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.
