The Coos County Sheriff’s Office recently responded to a local residence after hearing of a group of animals that had been neglected. Subsequently, the animals were collected for safekeeping and rehabilitative purposes.
The animals, consisting of 11 horses, 3 donkeys, 7 goats, 7 cats, 4 dogs, 18 pigs and 3 turkeys are currently being cared for and housed by a volunteer member of the Coos County Sheriff’s Office Posse.
Resources are limited and dwindling fast due to the large number of animals being cared for. The Sheriff’s Posse and Coos County Animal Shelter are asking for assistance with the care of the animals, and would appreciate any help that could be provided.
Monetary donations can be through PayPal. A link can be found on the Facebook page for the Coos County Animal Shelter, the Animal Shelters Partners and the Coos County Sheriff’s Office.
Alternatively, material donations and volunteer hours can be dropped off or coordinated through the Coos County Animal Control Office, located at 92690 South Port Road in Coos Bay, or at telephone number 541-751-2480.
The Coos County Sheriff’s Office is working in conjunction with legal council to determine the eligibility of adoption for the animals. At this time, we are unable to adopt the animals to the public, but hope to find them Forever Homes in the near future. If interested in adopting, please occasionally check with the Animal Shelter, who will be advised ASAP when adoption is possible.
August 28 update:
All of the animals
have found forever homes!
