Your donations make it possible for CAA to provide help and hope for the dogs and cats in Clatsop County. Because of you, we’re able to provide veterinary care for the shelter animals – from wellness check-ups for kittens to life-saving surgeries.

Did you know that CAA volunteers feed and medicate, socialize and walk, love and protect our local shelter animals? CAA volunteers devote their lunch breaks, weekends, and holidays – rain or shine – to provide daily care for Clatsop County Animal Shelter dogs and cats. Volunteers transport sick animals long distances to see specialists, and foster animals when special care is needed. CAA volunteers fundraise, run social media campaigns, and consult with potential adoptees – all help get our cats and dogs into safe and loving homes as quickly as possible. There are no paid employees here – just animal lovers.

With that in mind, join CAA’s Pup Strut and Kitty Cuddle 2020! Donate any amount that feels good- because we can’t do it without you. The cats and dogs of Clatsop County thank you!

Patty is our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pet of the Week for the week of October 18, 2020

Patty is a six year old lab/pit mix hoping for a wonderful home! Morgan says every time she’s been with Patty… “she has just been a gem and BALL IS LIFE. She adores snuggles and pets and being told how beautiful she is. Honestly, as long as she has a ball to chase and a comfy lap I think she would be the happiest dog.”

Carrie adds…”Patty is very striking with her caramel brown coat and eyes. She looks like a little tank of a dog, but her eyes – they tell me she’s a total sweetheart!”

This is one very happy go lucky dog who wags her tail at everyone she meets! We are recommending no children under twelve, however. Call the shelter at 503-861-7387 if you’d like to set up an appointment to meet her. The shelter is open 11:00 to 4:00 Tuesday through Saturday.

SUCCESS STORY: Sierra and Fisher

These two kittens were adopted in June and have clearly stolen the hearts of their family. Their mom tells us, “We didn’t start the typical way of wanting kittens. Our dog died and Oscar our 15 year old cat was extremely lonely. He would cry when he saw cats outside. I put on cat Youtube videos. He would run over and talk to the cats on TV.  Obviously he wanted friends.

We had a wonderful experience selecting our kittens and even were able to visit them until they were old enough to take home. It had been a long time since we had babies. A lot of joy but work also as they get into everything. Dishwasher, cabinets, washing machine etc.

I even found one taking a nap in our cast iron skillet on the stove. Before you turned anything on you needed to take a kitten inventory. That is the hard part but you do get lots of laughs.

The easy part is all the fun and love.  Exciting to see what they thought of some everyday objects. Stairs, drawers, coffee grinders. At six months they are still fascinated with the ice maker dispenser and come racing out whenever they hear it. I then place a few ice cubes in their water dish. They won’t leave until all the ice has melted.

Sierra and Fisher have been a wonderful addition to our home.  They are best friends with Uncle Oscar.”

Lola is our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pet of the Week for the week of October 4, 2020

Sue tells us, “Sweet Lola is an adorable, classy lady. She is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix who prefers her own home with her people rather than share all that love with other dogs or cats. She came to us with little training and now walks well on leash, sits readily and gazes soulfully into your eyes trying to convince you she hasn’t been for a walk in ages.” We’ve discovered that Lola likes to pretend she’s a lap dog while hanging out with volunteers in the play area.

Lola is six years old and is allergic to grass and chicken but is not on any medication. If you’d like to meet her, call the shelter at 503-861-7387 to set up an appointment.

Rafiki is our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pet of the Week for the week of September 27, 2020

Meet Rafiki

Carrie says…”It’s actually not difficult to understand why Rafiki is still at the shelter. You see, he is the kind of cat who seems reticent when you are first introduced to him. He doesn’t stand at the front of his cage and demand you pay him attention, but when he is given attention it is very appreciated. He’ll roll onto his back and show you his belly, he’ll nudge your hand. He is showing you he likes you and is also showing you how very sweet (and zen) he is. He is also exceedingly handsome, with unique facial markings and his black is a cape more than it is a suit coat. He’s quite small for a tom – maybe compact is a better word. Compact, too, is his tail which obviously either encountered a mishap somewhere along his five or so years or was always just a bit shorter than usual.

Rafiki came in as a stray but has obviously had human contact in his five years, is perhaps simply a little more reserved because his time in the wild. That’s speculation. Also speculation is a feeling that Rafiki in a loving home might be a much more outgoing cat. He just needs the right environment to let his inner light burst forth, and, as wonderful as the shelter is with helping animals in need, a home with play sessions, cuddle sessions, and regular meals is that much better.

Please, someone – go get this cat, open your home to him. You will not regret it!”
