Learning: Responsibility, Patience, and Compassion for All Life.
Bottom Line for Portland
In the past year, Project POOCH trained, rehabilitated and adopted out 50 dogs that were labeled “unadoptable” due to behavior, medical needs, age or breed. We accomplished this by pairing these dogs with youth incarcerated at MacLaren Correctional Facility in Woodburn, Ore.
Donors who give $500 or more will get a tour and meet and greet with POOCH youth and dogs, to be scheduled by appointment only. All G!G donors will be entered in a raffle to win a two-night stay at the bed and breakfast above Rogue Brewing’s Newport location.
“I used to be a troublemaker before working in this program. Now that I know there’s someone in the kennel waiting for me, I choose to take care of business so I can be with my dog. I became a responsible person because I know my dog depends on me.” —Former POOCH youth I.S.
