Project 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.

Happy Tails!

We are so proud of our POOCH alums, whether they go on to be the beloved family pet, hike mountains, become experts at agility, or help bring calm to and build trust in those going through difficult times. We love sharing their stories and are thrilled to announce our new Happy Tails! page on our Web site. Lilly at the Beach

Lilly As Lively As Ever!  (September, 2015)

We are celebrating 5 years with Lilly! She is now 11 years old, but still loves to chase her ball just like she is a puppy! We often take her to the beach, but usually we are cuddling with her at home. It has been a wonderful 5 years. We are so fortunate to have her in our lives. She is truly part of our family. We are grateful to the POOCH staff and youth who rescue dogs like Lilly. I remember how Lilly loved working with her youth trainer.
