Mission Statement
The Mission of the Corporation shall be to rescue, care for, and find responsible, loving, permanent homes for homeless and at-risk dogs and cats; to advance the goal ofa no-kill community;  to promote the principle of a lifetime commitment to our pets;  and to provide for spay-neuter and educational programs to the public.
The Oregon Coast Humane Society, located in Florence, Oregon, is made up of volunteers dedicated to assisting homeless or abused companion animals in our area.  We also seek to educate people about such animal-related issues as cruelty and pet overpopulation.

Our operating budget, which includes no tax dollars, is derived primarily from donations and the profits of our Bay Street Thrift Shop.  Additional budget sources include fund-raisers, grants, and member dues.

We are collecting for recycle Cans, Plastic Bottles & Glass bottles that have redemption value.  This is an added means of financial support.
Please bring your clean and bagged aluminum cans, plastic bottles and glass bottles to either the Shelter or the Thrift Shop during open hours and they will be redeemed by some of our volunteers.
Those cans and bottles are very valuable to us!

A Plea for donations for our shelter!
We are running low on the following items

Any Donations will be gladly accepted!  Donations not used at the shelter go to the OCHS Thrift Shop. If we do not use food donations for the shelter animals then it goes to help people in the community who are struggling to feed their pets.  Lately, we have been low on food and sadly have had to turn many people away.
