Clatsop Animal Assistance 

              Volunteer Picks:
Mulan, Leona, Sweet Pea, and Bones

Mulan is our Daily Astorian, KMUN, and HITS Pet of the Week

This thirteen year old girl has plenty of love to share.  Her guardian brought Mulan to the shelter only because she can't care for her anymore and hopes we'll find her a great home.  The cat volunteers say she is friendly and outgoing with people and, while she wants other cats to respect her space, she's not aggressive towards any of the cats at the shelter.  So come on in and see this beautiful, tiger-striped charmer for yourself.

Leona is a small Mastiff, just 81 pounds.  She’s a very calm, laid back senior (as you can see in this video).  We don’t know her whole history: the person who surrendered her had her for only one day.  She adopted Leona from another shelter without telling her husband, who didn’t want a dog, and ended up bringing her to our shelter last month.  Leona was an instant hit with our volunteers.  She also spent a day at our Sunday Market booth, where she happily soaked up attention from people and dogs for hours.

                   Sweet Pea
Sweet Pea is a young little miss of 8 months old.  She is a beautiful petite tux with lots of spunk and sass and will be on the small side when she is full grown.  Sweet Pea is still a little anxious and intimidated by so many other new fuzzy faces; she just needs to gain some self confidence and trust.  Lots of love and some TLC will really work wonders.  Sweet Pea will make some lucky family a great addition as well as a friend and play mate...she really digs the wand toys!

Bones is a sweet, medium sized four year old Lab/Chow mix.  He is easy to walk, knows basic commands, and responds well to treats. According to one volunteer, Bones has the most fun on his walks of any of the dogs. He needs to be an only dog in a home without cats.  Click here to see a short video of Bones.





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.

Baker is a very mellow senior boxer who came in a couple of weeks ago.  He loves lots of attention and is happy just hanging out with volunteers.  He prefers slow walks and won’t need a lot of exercise, making him the perfect couch potato.
