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.

Among other things, your gift during this upcoming season of giving will provide the young men with the winter clothes they need so they can make sure each dog gets out for daily walks, playtime, training, and fun – activities critical to our dogs’ well-being and mental health. It will also ensure each dog has a cozy bed to snuggle in during the cold and rainy months. Thank you!!!!
