Owner-to-Owner Adoptions

Pacific Cove provides a matching service for people who want to place their pet into a new home and those who are looking for a new pet to add to their family.  If you are able to keep your pet until a potential home is found, this is the service for you.  And, if you are interested in adopting a dog or cat of a particular breed or with special characteristics, we can help you find the pet that was meant for you.  We have made many successful matches and we love happy endings.  Call our office at 756-6522 and our volunteers will begin a search for you.
 

Foster Homes are Needed

There's so much satisfaction in rescuing animals in need and providing hands-on care and nurture. Being a foster caregiver is a wonderful way for many people to help by providing temporary sheltering until permanent homes can be found.

The Friends of Coos County Animals is looking for good foster homes in the area. If you would like to help in this way or learn more about fostering, please contact Laura Jorgenson at 888-3142.

Answers To Your Questions

Pacific Cove Humane Society invites your support to help build a modern animal shelter and pet adoption center to serve the Coos County region. 

Q  Who operates Pacific Cove Humane Society?
A
  Pacific Cove Humane Society is a community supported, 501c3 non-profit agency that is governed by an unpaid, all-volunteer board of directors. 

Q  Isnt there already an animal shelter in Coos County?
A
  Yes, the shelter on Southport Road is operated by the Coos County government.

Q  Why do we need another shelter?
A  The Pacific Cove Humane Society facility would increase critically needed shelter space in our region and make it possible to help more animals. A Humane Society is also an education and pet services center, helping people to select the pet that is best for their family, or avoid having to surrender a pet. Public education is the key to solving pet overpopulation and abandonment problems. 

The County Shelter is antiquated, limited in size by its present septic system, and, compared to the population it serves, the number of animals it can house is very small. 

Q  How long will it take to raise the money needed?
A
  Every community is different. Florence Area Humane Society opened in four years, which is considered fast. Heartland Humane Society in Corvallis took ten years. Typically, shelters depend on extraordinary assistance to get up and running, in the form of donated property, materials, and generous contributions. 

Q  Why cant Pacific Cove raise money by investing in property with the money it currently has and selling it at a profit?
A
 That is not a legitimate use of a non-profits funds.

 Q  Why dont you open a temporary facility while you raise funds for your dream shelter?
A
  Our mission is to build a modern shelter, appropriate for our areas population and needs. A temporary shelter would have considerable costs associated with it, too, and would further lengthen the time it would take to reach our ultimate goal.

Pacific Cove was formed for the purpose of making a proposal to take over the operation of the County Shelter in 2000. However, we did not pursue the proposal because of the physical problems at the site. We would like to be sheltering animals right now, and until we can, we are helping homeless animals through our Person to Person pet adoption service.
