Restricted Access to Adoption Area Oct. 14-25
From Oct. 14-25, staff members will need to escort guests to see dogs available for adoption due to facility maintenance work at the shelter. Thank you for your patience.
We provide dog sheltering, stray care, adoptions, and lost and found services. We reunite owners with lost dogs and match adoptable dogs with good homes. Is your home a good match for one of our dogs?
See these resources for help with other kinds of animals like birds and wild animals.

Make a Report
Please call 503-655-8628 or fill out our Investigation Request Form. Our office can take reports for dogs running at large, aggressive dogs running at large, menacing, livestock incidents involving dogs, barking complaints outside of city limits, neglect, and dog bite incidents. For neighbor disputes, such as barking dog complaints, you also may contact the Dispute Resolution Center for assistance with talking to your neighbors.
Bites by rabies-susceptible animals should be reported within 24 hours from the incident to the county in which the victim resides. If you receive a bite from an animal—especially a wild animal—that breaks or compromises the skin and/or draws blood, it is very important that you report the bite immediately.
There are A LOT of reasons why a dog is a problem barker. Learn about possible causes, solution options and how we can help.
