Thank you for looking at our dogs! We have some really amazing guests and do our best to keep them happy and find them their perfect match. If you see a dog that interests you, fill out an application online, or better yet, come in and meet them in person!* They’re waiting for you.
*Please note, we are open to the public so we cannot guarantee that the dog you are looking at will still be available when you arrive.
Center adoption viewing hours are Tuesday - Saturday 11:30am - 5:00pm.

We encourage everyone thinking about getting a dog to contemplate the responsibilities, cost and investments of time and energy to train and care for a dog. Please consider your lifestyle, family and what your idea of the perfect dog is. Then take your time to find your perfect fit; you will be rewarded with years of companionship and love.

NOTE: All dogs leave our shelter with a Clackamas County Dog License. If owners live outside of Clackamas County or within city limits, they will have to license their dog in their area. Check with your city or county about their licensing requirements. CCDC insists that all dogs who leave our shelter be licensed by us in case the dog gets away from its new owners before it has been properly licensed in its home area.
Cats: Our shelter does not have the facilities to accept large numbers of cats. We do occasionally have cats available for adoption when local cat rescue facilities are full.
Return Policy: The adopters have 30 days in which to return the dog to the shelter for an exchange should the newly adopted dog not work out for the family.
