Pet Finder: Adopt a Pet

Welcome to Animal Aid

Since its founding in 1969, Animal Aid has helped tens of thousands of companion animals through our rescue and adoption programs for homeless animals, financial and volunteer support of spay/neuter efforts, and by providing funds to guardians unable to pay for urgent veterinary care.

We receive no tax dollars, and thus our work is only made possible by your generous support. Learn more about our mission and ways you can help.

Sarah: I am one of those once in a lifetime dogs! I am a combination of the playful lab (love my toys!) and the loyal and obedient shepherd. And I LOVE people!

Heartstrings - room in your heart but not in your home

Looking for the perfect way to honor a loved one (2 or 4-legged) this holiday season? Well, we've got the perfect program for you!

The Heartstring Pets Sponsorship Program was developed for pets who are expected to be long-term residents at the shelter, and provides all of our animals with the best care (including medical attention) while they wait for their forever homes.

Donations of $25 or more will receive a Holiday card, bio/photo of the sponsored pet, and certificate of appreciation.

Mayday! Foster homes for cats needed immediately! The Multnomah Co. Humane Society is full to capacity, as are Animal Aid and the other shelters that absorb county overflow.
If we can enlist temporary foster homes to take in cats until we have room in the shelter, we can save lives!

Animal Aid in the Community

Animal Aid and its volunteers actively support other animal welfare groups in the Portland Metro area.
