TAS signed an agreement with Tillamook County to begin operating the small Animal Control Services kennel on July 1, 2008. TAS is limited in capacity to 6 individual kennels and 2 isolation kennels. TAS is accepting dogs only and will be taking in the county and city impounded dogs as well as abandoned and surrenders. We DO NOT take “strays” directly from the public.
Our goal is to reunite pets with their original owners. Dogs that are not claimed by their owners become available for adoption after we have advertised with no response and waited the appropriate 5 days mandated by Oregon law.
If you find a pet you believe has strayed from its home call: (503)815-1911.
If you have lost a dog call: 503-812-0105 to check our shelter.
Who We Are
Tillamook Animal Shelter Inc. is an IRC 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Currently the TAS Board of Directors are dedicated to serving the needs of animals throughout Tillamook County. We have a small base of volunteers but, we are recruiting for all types of activities.
OUR MISSION: To better the lives of animals through progressive sheltering, rescue, medical treatment, adoption, spaying and neutering, education, protection and defense from abuse and fostering the human-animal bond.
A note from Sherry TAS Shelter Operations Consultant/Coordinator:
I formerly did private rescue as Rescue By The Sea because of this our Rescue By The Sea “Happy Tails” will be left on this site.
Adopting a friend
We require in-depth adoption applications to be filled out, followed by an interview prior to the completion of an approved contract. We also do home visits to insure that the right pets are matched to the right homes.
All our pets are altered, up to date on vaccinations and micro chipped prior to adoptions being finalized. Our pets want to be a part of a family. Fenced yards are recommended for all dogs and a commitment to attend obedience classes after adoption is required. There is an adoption fee charged for our pets.
Come Visit Us!
All visits to the shelter are by appointment only for now.
Call: 503-812-0105 for appointment
