Oregon Humane Society transferred 43 dogs and 33 cats to our shelter in late July at the request of Multnomah County Animal Services. Multnomah County Animal Services is the taxpayer-funded county animal shelter serving the Portland, OR community. The animals were transported through the OHS Second Chance Program, which includes partnerships with agencies around the state to help ensure timely assistance during large-scale rescues and natural disasters.
These 76 pets are related to an ongoing case, but are not part of an active investigation. "Multnomah County is already caring for more than 100 animals from the case and needed support for these additional animals," OHS said in a statement on the influx of furry friends.
After arriving at OHS, the cats and dogs were examined and scheduled to receive any necessary medical care from the OHS veterinary team before being available for adoption.
"While this was a lot of animals to take into our shelter at one time, our team was able to mobilize quickly to prepare our facility and solicit extra help from volunteers," says Sharon Harmon, OHS President and CEO. "We are grateful for the work of Multnomah County Animal Services and glad we were able to help out with this situation."
