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 in mid-March.
In addition to our rainy day reserves, we have been kept afloat these five months by
• Donations from generous individuals
• Donations from generous local businesses, notably Grocery Outlet
• An annual & a supplemental grant from the So Hum Foundation of Portland
• A social service agency grant from Lincoln County
• A PPP loan/grant from the Small Business Administration
• Merchandise sales through our volunteer-managed eBay store

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

Local artist Julie Lamberson has brought a bright new spirit to the premises with her wonderful mural.
​You can see many other examples of Julie’s work around town and at julielamberson.com.

Thanks to our community’s support for the Pick of the Litter thrift store, the Calendar of Fabulous Lincoln County Pets, and other FOLCAS fundraising projects; thanks to contributions to FOLCAS from local businesses including the Rogue Foundation, For ArtSake Gallery, JC Thriftway Market, and ​Fred Meyer; and thanks ​to your direct donations, FOLCAS was able to help the animals of Lincoln County in all these ways during 2019:

Support for shelter animals:
• spay/neuter $46.5K (360 animals fixed)

Support for local pets:
• spay/neuter subsidies $25.6K (447 animals fixed)
