I am trying to find a good home for my cat Rocky Balboa.  My job has recently changed and I am constantly traveling out of town. I would rather find him a good home than keep him in kitty condos, or having cat sitters come look in on him for 15 minutes at a time….as I know that is not a good life for Rocky. Rocky is 11 years old and all shots are up to date. He is super cuddly but is also totally cool not hanging out if that is what you want. He is fine with other animals after a day or 2 of getting used to them. I am looking to re-home him sooner rather than my work schedule is going to be hectic for the summer. Email Stephane at

Moo was born in late August of 2011 and was bottle fed from 3 days old after him and his siblings were found without a mother and taken in by Other Mothers Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. He is called Moo because of his cow like spots.  Moo has been with a family for the last five years and as the family grows, they are no longer able to give him the love and attention that he needs.  He is well behaved and has good manners the majority of the time, but like any dog, he has to have the right amount of exercise to continue to be the well behaved dog that he is.  He knows basic commands.  He was neutered before he was adopted at 8 weeks of age and doesn’t lift his leg to pee or mark his territory.  He is good with most other dogs and good at the dog park.  He is vocal when he wrestles, but his tail wags the whole time.  It can intimidate some people that aren’t familiar with larger breeds, but his is just happy and likes to play. He is good with people of all ages.  He was present in the family before they had their first child and has behaved well with the child for the past three years.  He walks good on a leash most of the time. He is a strong boy being 65 lbs of muscle so if something catches his attention, it can sometimes cause him to pull. Off leash work will be necessary.  Though he is good most of the time off leash, there is occasions where he will be intrigued and run off. He has been a little itchy on one paw due to the excess of pollen in the air recently, but allergies have not been an issue in the past.  He gets along well with the other Pitbull in his current foster home, but has chased the cat.  He will chase cats and other small animals.  Like most dogs, if it runs, they will chase. Though he only slobbered all over the cat when he cornered it, it is unknown how he will react in the future. He is up to date on all his vaccines.  He comes with a large bed, his collar, harness and leash.

He will need to go to a home that has a fenced yard and a person/family that familiar with large breed dogs that are very strong.  They will also need to be able to give him adequate exercise.  He would love to be with someone that hikes or runs regularly. Any other animals in the home need to be altered.  He will also do best in a home with a calm yet authoritative figure(s).  As with most dogs, he will feed off the energy of his owner.  Easily anxious or overly excitable owners are not recommended for large strong breed dogs.  Moo does best with someone who has a calmer demeanor, but who isn’t afraid to make sure he listens to them.  He is currently residing in Camas, WA in a foster home.    Inquiries can be emailed to or by phone at 360-910-6054.

Sadie 2016


Sadie is a young, happy-go-lucky Lab/Pit mix (about two and a half years old.)  This girl is smart and VERY full of energy, so we think she would be a great agility dog.  Sadie does need to be an only pet (no other dogs and no cats) and will need a fully fenced yard.  She loves people! Sadie has been at the Clatsop County Animal Shelter for many months.  She was adopted out early last year, but came back because of her high energy level.

You can see more about Sadie at

Or call the shelter: (503) 861-0737

The shelter requires all members of the household to meet prospective adoptees.  We do home checks, but for those of you who live outside of the county, you’ll simply need to bring photos of your home, yard, and fence.  Adoption fees are $110.00 for dogs younger than ten years old and include micro-chipping and registration.

Hi everyone! My name is Bentley and I am cute and silly 2.5 year old whippet mix. I am bit shy when meeting new people, but with some patience and a few treats, I will quickly come around and show you my playful side! Hailing all the way from Texas, I am not used to all this commotion in the city and would just love a quiet area to call home! A big backyard would be even better, as I love to run around and get the zoomies when playing with my pals at Pixie! Did I mention I love playing? Because I really do! Whether it’s with my other doggy pals or by myself, I am always up for some wrestling and ball time. I enjoy the company of cats and kids over 12 as well!

I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped  with an adoption fee of $250.

Rookie 1 (1)

Hi folks! My name is Rookie!  I am just a cute, shy little Chihuahua mix looking for a lap to snuggle on! I am very active guy and like to go for walks, but only if you promise to snuggle me on the couch after! I love to hang out with my doggy pals and cats are OK too! Since I am socially sensitive, I need to be in a low key and quiet environment without kids. I am shy at first, but with some time, patience, and a few treats, I will become your new best friend! I tend to bark at strangers when I see them, but can easily be redirected with treats. In fact, all my training seems easy with just a few treats because I listen so well! My foster family says that I am even already kennel and potty trained! I am just a very sweet and affectionate guy looking for a confident owner who understands my needs and has the patience to work through them. Are you that person? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Sometimes I will go to the cattery window and plead with front desk staff to come give my some love. Did  I mention I like to talk? Just call me chatty Kathy! I enjoy your attention and love to do some climbing as well! The top shelf in the cattery or my favorite cat tree in the corner is where you can usually find me, if I already haven’t already come up to you, rubbing on your legs and asking for some rubs. I am quite the charming gal! So fill out an application today and come on over to Pixie, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $100.
