Adoptable Pets in Oregon
"Friends for Animals” dba South Coast Humane Society (SCHS) started in 1992 by 12-15 individuals who saw a need to help abandoned/lost pets. Friends for Animals filed Articles of Incorporation in December of that year and obtained the 501(c)(3) non-profit status. They first started by fostering animals in their homes and holding fundraisers of bake sales, yard sales, and auto raffles.

In August 1997 a building was leased and the first thrift store was opened at 620 Hemlock, Brookings. This provided funds for various services such as a Tom Cat Neuter Clinic where area veterinarians participated, Crisis/Emergency funds helping animals at the then County Shelter in Gold Beach, caring for and adopting homeless animals to new homes and more.

Through various Boards of Directors, the Shelter at 828 Railroad, Brookings was built in 2002 using funds from an anonymous donor. The Shelter has housed and re-homed many animals during this time and currently serves the community through a low-income, low-cost clinic housed in the medical room added to the Shelter.

If you would like to become involved in the success of a local Shelter and its growth in the community, please consider volunteering. The Shelter and the Thrift Store are always in need of individuals with a heart for animals and a desire to help.

South Coast Humane Society is a 501c3 non profit animal rescue shelter hard at work saving beautiful pets from high kill shelters, helping to re-home strays, providing the community with low cost veterinary services, and so much more! We believe every animal deserves a warm bed, medical care, love and a wonderful home. This compassion drives all that we do. Its a huge task, but our hard working staff and volunteers are committed to the animals 365 days of the year! We receive NO government funding and depend on your generosity to keep our shelter open, our clinic running, and our work moving forward. We invite you to be a part of this amazing legacy and lend your support through a one-time or recurring donation, or by remembering us through estate planning. The animals thank you!

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
