The cornerstone of the MAX FUND was a substantial donation from Gary and Carol Allen in memory of their beloved companion Max, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in January 2013.
FOLCAS also budgets a portion of the proceeds from the Pick of the Litter Thrift Store each month for this program. However, the need in our community is so great that we must also rely on donations from local animal lovers to supplement the MAX FUND.
Please visit our DONATE page to contribute to the MAX FUND, either with a one-time gift or by becoming a monthly sustainer at whatever level you choose.
The MAX FUND for Veterinary Medical Care
To support and advance the health and well-being of domesticated animals in Lincoln County, Oregon
This fund was endowed by two very generous benefactors who lost their sweet Bella to parvovirus, despite heroic efforts to save her, at just ten months of age. They knew that Bella would not want other beloved animals in our community to have to leave their people before their time, so they gave this grant for dental care because it is so expensive and yet so essential to overall health.
Soon after Lincoln County's voters passed the Animal Services Tax District in November 2012, providing permanent funding for the Animal Shelter's operating budget, FOLCAS broadened its mission to include support for other community animals besides those housed in the Lincoln County Animal Shelter.
FOLCAS funds three financial aid programs to help local pet guardians with the cost of medical care, dental care, and spay/neuter for their animals. These programs are administered on our behalf by the Central Coast Humane Society, 541-265-3719.
The BELLA FUND for Veterinary Dental Care
FOLCAS provides a monthly grant to the Central Coast Humane Society to supplement their own spay/neuter funds in order to help meet the great need in our community for keeping both domestic pets and community (aka feral) cats from reproducing. Not only do spaying & neutering help prevent pet overpopulation, with all of its sad consequences, but a fixed animal has a far better chance of leading a longer, healthier, happier life.
To obtain financial aid through any of these programs
please call the Central Coast Humane Society
