Project POOCH, Inc.


To teach responsibility, patience and compassion for all life to incarcerated youth and rehabilitate previously difficult-to-adopt dogs.

Bottom Line for Portland

Project POOCH teaches life skills to troubled youths and places shelter dogs into loving homes. Most important, its program has zero recidivism; of all the youth who have completed POOCH’s program, none have ended up back in corrections upon release.

“I adopted Boogie from Project POOCH in 2005. He saw me through a marriage breakup, falling back in love, moving overseas (we now live in Australia) and having my two babies. I couldn't have had a better partner.”
