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.

Support the "Rose Fund" with GREAT limited-edition sweatshirt!

We are creating a fund for dogs who, like Rose, take a little longer to find their forever homes due to behavior, medical needs, age, or breed. Rose is a sweet greyhound/shepherd mix at our kennel who takes longer to warm up to visitors than some of our other dogs. As a result, she has struggled to find her forever family. However, once she gets to know people, she is the sweetest, most loyal companion. She is loved by the staff and youth alike!

We have created a gorgeous, limited-edition crewneck sweatshirt (5 colors!) with a picture of her. 100% of the proceeds will go dogs like her, so that we can spoil them with love until they find their adoptive homes. CLICK HERE to order yours now! And wouldn't this make a great Christmas present?You cant buy love - but you can rescue it! CLICK HERE to get this limited edition sweatshirt.
