Dog Services

We provide dog shelter, stray care, adoptions, and lost and found services. We reunite owners with lost dogs and match adoptable dogs with good homes. Is your home a good match for one of our dogs?

Wish list for dogs at the county shelter

We accept donations such as enrichment toys, dog food, treats and medical supplies at the shelter. Each donation allows the dogs in our care to enjoy a better quality of life during their stay with us. Review the current wish list.

Shelter dogs appreciate your support!

Our community continues to support dogs brought to the shelter through Clackamas Dogs Foundation fundraisers. The funds are used to continue efforts such as an emergency fund for dogs who arrive at the shelter injured, a spay and neuter program for the dogs of low-income residents, and a behavior/training coordinator for Clackamas County Dog Services. Here’s the latest:


Licensing your dog will help us reunite you should your dog become lost. Licensing also helps pay for the care of homeless animals while we attempt to find them a new home. If you are on any sort of government assistance, you are eligible to receive a voucher for a no-cost spay or neuter and a rabies vaccine when purchasing a one-year dog license. Purchase or renew a license.

Free microchipping, rabies vaccination for licensed dogs

We offer free microchipping dogs on the fourth Saturday of every month between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. for county-licensed dogs. We also offer free rabies vaccinations when purchasing or renewing a license at the clinic. Microchipping and rabies vaccine details.

License your dog. It's the law.

Is barking a problem?

Continuously barking dogs can be an annoying neighborhood problem. Our barking dog resolution program is designed to resolve issues related to continuous barking.

If your dog is barking excessively, consult our guide to why dogs bark.

Dog waste management 

If pet waste is left on the ground, it may eventually make its way into a nearby storm drain or stream the next time it rains.
