              Volunteer Picks:
Murphy, Susie, Titan, and Greta

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

This six year old Akita/Lab mix came to us this summer from a shelter outside of the area.  We’re told that he needs to be in a home with no children, cats, or small dogs.  We all love this guy.  The volunteer walkers say “He’s wonderful!”  “He’s easy to walk, with very little pulling.”  “I really enjoy taking him to the play yard to play fetch.”  “He always lets me take tennis balls right out of his mouth.” Murphy went to the SurfSand dog show at the beach last weekend and had no problem with dogs getting up close and personal.


Susie is a beautiful black kitty who loves to be sweet-talked and just hang out.  Although she is declawed, she can pummel with the best (if threatened) before her feline opponent can even get an aggressive swipe in. Susie wants to be loved and will give her love and devotion to someone who is willing to go slowly the first week or so giving her time to feel comfortable with her new home and adoptive family.

This six year old Great Dane/Border Collie mix is full of happy energy.  If you like running, hiking, or hours of fetch, Titan’s your boy.  He loves to stop, sniff, and explore during his walks, making him an all-round good-natured companion.  Titan won third prize at the SurfSand dog show in his baseball getup.  

This girl is a sleek black beauty with a bit of white on her chest. Although Greta came in not feeling well and has had to be nursed back to health, she did not let that stand in the way of her sweet personality. Greta soaks up all the love she can get; she  just wants to be cuddled and will reward you with a soothing purr and loving gaze.











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.

  This small two year old Chow has a beautiful black coat with white swirls. She’s a happy soul who loves her walks, but where she really cuts loose is in the play area, where she’ll run circles around us when we first take her out.  As you can see here, she has a classic Chow teddy bear face. While Zoey should make a great family dog, she needs a home without cats.
