Donate cash. The Clatsop County Animal Shelter Enhancement Fund is used to enhance adoptions of animals and for capital and other one-time improvements at the shelter. The Board of Commissioners reviews and approves expenditures. An outdoor dog run was recently built with monies for the fund. Donations to the enhancement fund are tax-deductible. Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the Clatsop County Animal Shelter, 1315 SE 19th St., Warrenton, OR 97146.

Donate supplies. Donations of high-quality name brand pet food, pet toys and supplies help keep the shelter running. We need to keep the animals on a consistent and high-quality diet. Bring donations to the Clatsop County Animal Shelter at 1315 SE 19th St., Warrenton, Oregon. We are open every Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. (closed holidays).
