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.

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 ( and follow CAA’s Facebook page for more in-depth profiles of our available animals at Again, the phone number for questions or to make an appointment is 503-861-7387.

Thank you for your patience!
