, but no on
              Volunteer Picks:
Mittens, Louie, Patti and Cathy, and Kiki

Mittens is our Daily Astorian, KMUN, and HITS Pets of the Week

Mittens is striking light tabby.  Although she’s a bit overwhelmed by the level of activity and all the other cats in the cat room, she comes to the front of her kennel to be petted by visitors.  Lately Mittens has been hanging out in the lobby after the shelter closes. Out there where it’s quieter she’s quite friendly and relaxed with volunteers and the two small lobby dogs.

Our Louie is going to make a wonderful pet; he just needs to be the only pet on the premises.  He's great with people and gets lots of walks and playtime at the shelter because the volunteers are so fond of him.  We all want to see this guy in a happy, permanent home, so please come in and visit with him.

                 Patti and Cathy
These two middle-aged brown tabby sisters are a bonded pair and will be adopted out together...they truly enjoy each other's company.  Patti and Cathy balance each other out in personality; one is shy and the other outgoing.

 Our high-spirited Kiki spent two months at Hammond Kennels, where she learned canine good manners (and some tricks.)  Kennel owner Eva Wiseman says Kiki was popular with all the staff members.  Her best pal at the kennel was Betty, a former shelter Pit mix. Kiki, at two years old, can get a little rowdy, but when Betty told her no she listened and calmed down.  Kiki is a happy, strong girl who will thrive on lots of walks or runs.








Welcome to Clatsop Animal Assistance. We are located in Warrenton Oregon (just outside of Astoria). Clatsop Animal Assistance, Inc. (CAA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and providing for the needs of the Clatsop County Animal Shelter's homeless pets. CAA volunteers work hard to improve the quality of life for these animals, most directly by assisting the Animal Shelter, which has limited resources with which to deal with strays and unwanted pets within Clatsop County.

  • CAA pays for veterinary care well as antibiotics and other critical medicines that aren't covered in the shelter's budget.  CAA also pays a portion of the spay/neuter fees for animals adopted out of the shelter.
  • CAA purchases cat litter and other supplies, and pays for grooming costs not covered by the shelter's budget.
  • CAA supports the shelter's adoption program, sponsoring promotional ads and holding adoption events. 
  • CAA maintains an adoption booth at Astoria's Sunday Market every other week from May through part of September every year.
  • CAA is committed to reducing pet overpopulation: we support spay/neuter programs financially and work to educate the public on the importance of spaying or neutering their pets.



Clatsop Animal Assistance, also known as CAA, is a 501©3 all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping the Clatsop County Animal Shelter's homeless pets.
We support these animals by providing funds to pay for veterinary care, spay/neuter fees, medicines, cat litter, grooming, specialty-diet foods, and other supplies not covered by the shelter budget.

We promote the shelter animals by
providing advertising and promotional materials and by sponsoring adoption events.

CAA helps turn hardship and suffering into happy endings, sending a message of compassion and caring for animals out into the community.

  Chance was adopted out of the shelter several years ago. Sadly, his adopted family is moving and can`t take Chance with them, so he`s back looking for a home. This 6.5 year old Pit/Lab mix has lived with cats and small children. He’s a friendly boy, fairly strong but easy to walk. We’re hoping to find him his true forever home this time around.
