Directions to CAT’s Sherwood shelter

Take the Nyberg St/Tualatin-Sherwood Rd exit from I-5. Head west on Tualatin-Sherwood Rd. Bear left to stay on Tualatin-Sherwood Rd. Go 3.5 miles to Gerda Ln (from I-5, it’s just after the second set of railroad tracks). Turn right at the light for Gerda Ln. Make an immediate right onto Galbreath Dr. 

CAT is the second building on the left (across from the DMV).

Offsite Adoption Centers

In addition to our Sherwood shelter, you can meet cats for adoption from CAT at various Portland-area offsite adoption centers. Adoption hours vary by location.
