Darla, a Project POOCH Graduate

POOCH in the Pub - July 14 - TICKETS ON SALE NOW!roject POOCH, Inc.® has successfully paired youths incarcerated at the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in Woodburn, Oregon, with homeless shelter dogs since 1993.
Youths (guided by professionals) learn to train the dogs, groom them, and find them new adoptive "forever homes." The dogs leave the program ready to be great pets, while their trainers re-enter the community with new job and personal skills and increased compassion and respect for all life.

Project POOCH, Inc. is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, Tax ID # 93-1252054 – your donation is tax-deductible.

Every month this year we are will hold a photo contest to celebrate "The Year of the Dog." This month your dog can compete in one of two categories:

1st category: Wedding Kisses
As wedding season approaches, we want you to show us your dogs getting in the wedding spirit. Whether they are celebrating with a doggie tuxedo or just expressing their love through kisses, we would love to see!

2nd category: Graduation
June is also the month of graduations and celebrations. Show us a picture of your dog graduating from an obedience class, winning an award, or just accomplishing something big!

There will be a winner selected in each category, and both will be featured in our 2019 Calendar!

Sometimes all it takes is some patience, compassion, and individualized attention in order for people to achieve what they were always capable of. Two former Project POOCH youths in particular continue to inspire us with their actions and accomplishments.  Continue reading...
