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

Adopted! 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.

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!

Here are some photos from this year’s participants!

Aggie is 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 July 5, 2020



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. or

Simon is 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 June 14, 2020!



Laura recently got to spend some time with Simon and she tell us…”Simon is a greeter! He follows me from the door to hop up on the shelves so he can purr in my ear and head bump in a cheery fuzz ball way. Gorgeous long hair and classic face.”

She is right! Simon is one dashing fellow…from his long jet black luxurious coat to his gorgeous yellow eyes. He is sweet, mild mannered and sure to keep your lap warm during a chilly afternoon. He also plays ball and comes to a whistle. Simon loves dogs and would be better with older children, but needs to be the only cat. He is 7 yrs old, loves attention and affection and is ready to go to a wonderful home!

If you’d like to meet Simon, please call the animal shelter at 503-861-7387 for more information or to make an appointment.

Pudge has been enjoying life with Dan, Sue, Olive and Herbie since late last year. Here’s an update we just received:

“Pudge loves the current stay-in-place order.   She is very good at staying in place.  One place…for a long time…until dinner.  Then she is happy to move from her spot in the sun to her dinner bowl.  We have enjoyed spending oodles of time with our old greyhound and new to us bundle of love. Pudge continues to amaze us with her many noises.  There seems to be a new one for every occasion.  There’s one for scratching her ears, another for rubbing her belly, and yet another for enjoying a good meal.  Our greyhounds (Olive and Herbie) are quiet and graceful, yet we love the Cacophony of Pudge. She snores like chainsaw at full throttle, but chirps happily while eating a treat. She has also mastered the art of weaving between the greyhound legs during walks.  Despite her rotund physique, she stealthily finishes their dinners and beats them to every sunbeam before they know it. We love this furry package! Thanks to all of the staff and volunteers at the Clatsop County Animal Shelter! You have brought our furry soulmate home :)”
