|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.

Thanks to Debby Schneider for supplying this update on POOCH alum Joey:
"We've had Joey now for 5 years and everyday we have him we are grateful. :) He is just as wonderful as he has always been! I can't express my thanks enough to the youth and staff at POOCH! You all make a huge difference in so many ways!"
Thank you to Shirley Thiel and Philadelphia Insurance! Their generous donation has provided our shelter with blankets, leashes, treats and more - all of which is being put to good use! We are so grateful for your continued support.
