What is an Animal Shelter?

The Clatsop County Animal Shelter is a place where dogs and cats that are abused, abandoned, lost, or unwanted can find shelter, food, and love with the help of Dogs ’N Cats. In addition to responding to complaints and bringing in lost animals, they are also committed to helping each animal in their shelter find a permanent loving home.
