About The CDF

The Clackamas Dogs Foundation provides support and assistance to dogs in order to advance dog welfare in Clackamas County. We do this through our support of our low cost spay and neuter program, emergency vet fund, support of training and assessment of shelter dogs as well as other programs.

We work closely with the Clackamas County Dog Services (CCDS).  As the county’s stray holding facility, CCDS is obligated to take in every homeless and stray dog brought to them. This makes the work we do so important, as we are often taking care of under-socialized, fearful or untrained dogs.
