Fun Ways to Support POOCH

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.

Project POOCH 2019 Contest Part 2: Dog Relationships/Friendships

Project POOCH Calendar contest for February 2019: Dog Relationships/Friendships

All donations will be used to help care for our shelter dogs and support the youth who prepare them for adoption. The proceeds will help pay for spay/neuter, healthy food, vaccinations, new toys, blankets, and rain gear (for both the pups and youth).

Dogs are amazing at showing unconditional love and appreciating those around them. Show us a picture of your dog with their best friend(s).

Roberta Blau




Good-bye to a Good Friend

Roberta Blau, former Project POOCH, Inc. board member, recently passed away after several years living with ALS. She was smart, funny, and a supporter of POOCH for many years.

Aunt Sally is caring for Archie, the orange one-eyed cat. Aunt Joan is caring for Picabo (Boo), the 18-year old tabby, that was found as a kitten between two walls at IBM where Roberta once worked.
