Oregon Humane Society assists Lincoln County Animal Shelter after closure due to mold.
The Oregon Humane Society is assisting Lincoln County Animal Shelter after the facility was forced to close indefinitely due to unsafe levels of mold. Forty-two cats and kittens arrived at the OHS Cat and Kitten Intake Center on Monday afternoon. Two dogs were also part of the transport and are being housed at the main OHS shelter.
“Emergency situations like the one in Lincoln County illustrate why we opened our off-site Cat and Kitten Intake Center,” says Sharon Harmon, OHS President and CEO. “We’re glad to help our colleagues on the coast while they deal with a tough situation.”
Summer has already been a very busy time for cats and kittens coming in to the Oregon Humane Society. Since June 1, more than 1,300 felines have arrived at OHS. This is close to 250 more kittens than the same time period in 2018.
“We get calls every week from shelters around Oregon and throughout the region asking for help with cats and kittens,” adds Harmon. “This has been a very busy ‘kitten season.’”
The kittens and cats from Lincoln County will be available for adoption at our main shelter beginning Thursday, July 25.
All adoptions include vaccines, spay/neuter, microchip, one month of pet insurance for Oregon residents, a health exam with a vet of your choosing and a coupon from Mud Bay.
Hours for viewing and meeting pets are 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
