Like other organizations in the area, the shelter has established new procedures to minimize everyone’s exposure to the COVID-19 virus. First, all licensing must be done by mail while an online system is being set up. Sorry, no walk-ins.
If you’d like to visit with one of our dogs or cats, you will need to call and make an appointment at 503-861-7387. The shelter will be taking appointments from 11:00 to 4:00 Tuesday through Saturday. If the line is busy you can leave a message and the staff will call you back. Note that you will be asked several health-related questions before you are allowed in.
Only two people are allowed in the shelter at any one time, so if a larger group of you wants to visit a dog, you can meet up outside. Only one person and one volunteer are allowed in the cat room at a time.
The shelter has lots of pups and kitties who would love to find homes, so please check out who’s available at Petfinder (https://www.petfinder.com/member/us/or/warrenton/clatsop-county-animal-control-services-or53/) and follow CAA’s Facebook page for more in-depth profiles of our available animals at https://www.facebook.com/ClatsopAnimalAssistance/. Again, the phone number for questions or to make an appointment is 503-861-7387.
Thank you for your patience!
Zeus, our Pet of the Week for the week of August 2, 2020, has something he’d like to discuss with you – adoption!
Mitzi tells us, “Handsome Zeus waits patiently for his person/people to find him. He loves with his whole being! Look into those incredible eyes, reaching into one’s soul. He comes to life with petting, playing, brushing… he soaks up the affection and gently asks for more.
Zeus tries to make friends but sadly our other cats currently are not interested.
Please consider this gorgeous, loving, fun boy as your forever companion!”

Call the shelter at 503-861-7387 for an appointment to meet Zeus.
This one year old pitbull was timid when he first came in but he’s adjusting quickly and making lots of friends. Volunteers say this gentle soul is good on a leash and very curious about his surrounding – he loves to stop and sniff everything on his walks. Jeffrey is slowly learning sit, stay, and lie down. He’s affectionate with everyone and a snuggler. He will need a fully fenced yard.
Call the animal shelter at 503-861-7387 to make an appointment if you’d like to meet Jeffrey.

Diane tells us, “Arwen is a beautiful medium-long haired gray tabby with the most unusual fluffy tail that looks like feathers. She also has jade green eye color to die for. Arwin is a very affectionate cat, talkative, active and playful. She will bond easily with her new owner.”
This gorgeous girl is a prima donna and will need to be an only cat. She’s young, not quite two years old.

Carrie tells us, “Aggie is a cat with years of life experience. She’s long past the adorableness of kittenhood, zoomies of the teenager years, and has even lived through the middle ages. She’s seventeen, she doesn’t need to dart around like a feline maniac anymore. That’s for the younger crowd, as it should be. No, Aggie may not be the most sprightly of cats anymore but don’t let her age fool you into thinking she’s without energy. She’s got plenty left in her compact little frame, and she’s also a cat who loves to chat. Her craggy voice is simply the cutest. She may sound a bit demanding, but here’s the thing – that’s just confidence in her own ability to steal your heart. She knows what she wants, she knows how to get your attention about it.
And what she wants is simply to have a home, with soft cushions, regular meals (and treats, maybe some treats), and gentle hands to dole out as much love as she can take.”
If you’d like to meet Aggie, call the Clatsop County Animal Shelter at 503-861-7387 to set up an appointment.
