​To support and advance the health and well-being of domesticated animals in Lincoln County, Oregon

With the money raised at our Pick of the Litter thrift store, FOLCAS pays for the spay & neuter of the animals at the Lincoln County Animal Shelter and also provides financial assistance for local pet guardians who need help affording medical care, dental care, & spay/neuter for their pets.

We're grateful to have been able to maintain our full level of program services throughout the pandemic period even though we had to close the store for 5 1/2 months in 2020 and again in September 2021.

In addition to our rainy day reserves, we have been able to keep up with our commitments thanks to

• Donations from many individuals in Lincoln County and beyond
• Donations from local businesses
• Annual & supplemental grants from the So Hum Foundation of Portland
• Social service agency grants from Lincoln County and the City of Newport
• Charitable fundraising programs run by Fred Meyer, the Oregon Beverage 
  Recycling Cooperative, Planet Green Recycle,, 
  and WoofTrax (see the DONATE page for details)
• Merchandise sales through our volunteer-managed eBay store 

Our county’s animals and the people who care for them thank and salute you all!
