Keeping Everyone Safe and Healthy at the Animal Shelter with Adoptions by Appointment Only

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!

Flapjack and Trouble are our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pets of the Week for the week of May 17, 2020

These two seniors are a delightful bonded pair. At twelve and thirteen years old they are as spunky and rambunctious as puppies, and are affectionate with all the volunteers and shelter staff. Flapjack can really move in his cart and has no problem keeping up with his brother out on walks. They both love attention and will add smiles to any home without cats.

If you’d like to meet them, call the shelter at 503-861-7387 to set up an appointment.

Dee 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 April 26, 2020

 

Say Hello to Dee! Dee is a year 7 old black and white short haired female cat who is ready for adoption. Volunteers tell us that she is a real sweetheart. She’s a little shy at first, but once she warms up to you she’s super lovey dovey and just wants you to stay and pet her forever!

Interested in an introduction? Call the shelter at 503-861-PETS to set up an appointment to meet her.

You can read more about her at https://www.petfinder.com/cat/dee-47836236/or/warrenton/clatsop-county-animal-control-services-or53/

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 April 12, 2020

One of our volunteers 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. Ms. Lola loves the sun, the soft grass and snuggle appointments.”

Lola is almost six years old. If you’d like to meet her, call the shelter at 503-861-7387 to set up an appointment.

Blaze 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 March 29, 2020

Blaze 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 March 29, 2020

Here’s Carrie: “White and caramel brown, Blaze cuts a fine figure. That much is apparent by simply looking at him, but like so many good-looking creatures, it’s best if you look a bit deeper if you want to really know them. Do so with young Blaze, and you’ll find he is definitely more than a pretty face. What an absolute magnetic personality he has – Blaze is like that person in any given social situation that is just so amiable and upbeat people want to be around them. You can’t help but smile when you’re walking, playing or hanging out with Blaze because he is always so, so happy. It’s infectious, in the best possible way. If ever in a grumbly mood, then spend a minute or two with him and that mood will naturally shift upward. Who couldn’t use a mood boost these days?

Blaze would love to meet you, maybe make that mood boost a permanent one. Bonus: having him with you in your home will also help you get OUT of your home right now to take him for walks he could definitely use. He may have a little extra poundage to work off. Just a little. And while he’s exuberant and affectionate, he’s not unwieldy at all and would adapt into almost any home as long as it has a fenced  yard and he meets all occupants first.” He has lived with children, who adored him.
