We have several new videos of our shelter dogs.  Watch these below.

Our long-timer Louie is back.  He loves all people, but will need to be an only pet.  Here is Louie's video showing how well he responds to humans.

Brigitte is a young black and white tuxedo girl, about one and half years old.   She’s very friendly and outgoing, and tolerant of other cats.  Brigitte enjoys lap sits, strokes and being brushed.  Her family brought her in when they couldn't care for her anymore.

                    Cutie Pie
This senior girl is adjusting to the room full of cats at the shelter. She’s still shy around people, but she is starting to like lap time with the volunteers.                     

Here’s a glamour shot of this happy, happy girl.  We usually can’t her to hold still long enough for a photo.  Holly loves walks, playtime, or anything involving people. She came in as a stray and we think she’s about a year old, since she still has lots of puppy enthusiasm.

                                                        Our Parvo Puppies

Rachel, Jason, Katie, Jane, Natalie, Julie, and Emma: these Beagle-Bichon puppies all came into the shelter in November with parvovirus.  After spending several days at the vet getting intensive care, they came back to the shelter, where they were quarantined until each one received a clean bill of health.  All have now been adopted into loving homes. CAA covered the vet care and medication costs totaling close to $4,300.00.  We couldn’t have done it without your support.  We thank you, the puppies thank you, and the adopting pet parents thank you. 

That's Katie and Julie below.



A good Samaritan found Shrek wandering on Mount St. Helen's.  He was injured, with bite marks all over his body, indicating that he had been a bait dog.  Celestine (our good Samaritan) brought him in to the animal shelter, so that he could receive veterinary care and have a place to recover.  Shrek needed surgery for his entropion eyes (the lids folding inwards, instead of outwards) as well as medications for his other injuries and infections.  CAA covered his vet and medication bills and our volunteers helped give him the loving attention he needed.  Best of all, this story has a perfect ending: Shrek is now happily at home with Celestine and her dog, Happy. 


Shiloh came to the shelter after his owner died.  He was so overweight he could barely walk and had severe sores on his feet.  He immediately went to a foster home where he lost 40 pounds and his wounds healed.  After coming back to the shelter to await adoption, Shiloh would sit in his cage and moan.  CAA volunteers took him to many events so that people could meet this wonderful dog.  Shiloh eventually went to his forever home where he lived out his life getting regular exercise, sleeping with cats, and being loved.  CAA paid for all of his medical expenses; without us, he might not have been deemed adoptable.  

Judy before and after

A good Samaritan found Judy by the side of the road and brought her into the shelter two years ago.  She was very underweight, had just had puppies, and was infested with fleas, as you can see from the before picture above.  CAA covered the care needed to get Judy healthy again, including vet visits and daily baths with medicated shampoo both at the shelter and in her foster home.  She is now happy and healthy, and her foster home has turned into her forever home (this happens a lot!)

With your support, we can continue to give shelter dogs and cats like Shrek, Shiloh and Judy a second chance at permanent, loving homes. 
The animals thank you.

CAA's FY 2012 Expenditures (July 2012 - June 2013)
Because we're all volunteers, most of our money is spent directly on the animals


Odin (aka Dobby while he was at the shelter) was adopted earlier this fall.  His mom tells us he's being "spoiled rotten."  Can you tell? When Odin first came to the shelter, we weren’t sure whether he would need expensive surgery for wobbler syndrome, a non-fatal but painful cervical spine condition seen in many large dogs, including Dobermans.  CAA covered the $1,788.00 for the tests that showed he could live a long, happy life with no surgery.  Without CAA’s help, Odin may not have been adoptable because of the uncertainty of his condition and the likelihood it would cost several thousand dollars to treat it. 

With your support, we can continue to give shelter dogs and cats like Odin a second chance at a happy home.  Just click on the PayPal logo below or mail your donation to 
CAA, PO Box 622, Warrenton, OR  97146.

The animals thank you!
