Working as a dedicated team of professional staff and compassionate volunteers, the Oregon Coast Humane Society provides an array of services for the community including animal adoptions, a low-cost spay/neuter program, lost and found pet reporting, financial assistance for veterinary care, pet nail clipping, a pet food bank, stray housing for police pickups, and a thorough humane education program. Through these services, the organization strives to keep pets safely and happily in their homes and promotes the principal of a lifelong commitment to our pets. Over time, the shelter has grown to better accommodate the increasing homeless pet population. Yet, as a dedicated no-kill facility, their intake is limited to their animal housing capacity.
The Greenhill Humane Society, SPCA is another dedicated shelter in place to meet the needs of Florence's homeless animal population. Located an hour east, in Eugene, OR, the nonprofit animal organization serves the pets and people throughout Lane County. Their mission is to provide a safe haven for animals in transition, work to end pet overpopulation, advocate for pets and their people, and educate the public on compassion and responsibility towards all animals.
The shelter is committed to providing the highest level of care for shelter animals, providing complete medical attention, daily enrichment activities, thorough exercise, customized behavioral training, and an abundance of love. Additionally, they offer several services to help the county's pets and people thrive, such as adoption services, low-cost spay/neuters, foster care, a pet assistance program for seniors, dog training, domestic violence assistance, and many more. The Greenhill Humane Society envisions a community in which all companion animals have loving, responsible homes and are treated with compassion and respect.
Canine companions are welcome and encouraged to tag along while you explore Florence's Singing Pines Park. The city park features hiking trails, picnic areas, drinking fountains, a playground, and most importantly, a designated off-leash dog park! The off-leash area features separate areas for small and large dogs, pet waste bags and receptacles, benches throughout, and plenty of shade. The dog park is securely fenced, clean, and well-maintained. All doggie visitors must be vaccinated, registered, and under voice control. Watch your furry friend frolic through the field, play with puppy peers, and get their paws moving! This place is truly a pooch oasis amidst the pines!
