Fun Ways to Support POOCH

Honoring Chapo's Memory

Darla, a Project POOCH Graduate

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.

Our Mission - Learning: Patience, Responsibility and Compassion for all Life.

This year Project POOCH is honored to be featured in the Willamette Week Give!Guide, Portland’s easiest path to year-end giving.

You can make your year end gift via their platform by visiting 

Donors who give $500 or more to Project POOCH via G!G before the end of the year will get a tour and meet-and-greet with POOCH youth and dogs, to be scheduled by appointment. 

Thanks to Rogue Brewing, all G!G donors to Project POOCH will be entered in a raffle to win a two-night stay at the bed and breakfast above Rogue Brewing’s Newport location.
