Spay/Neuter Assistance – This program is designed for people who want to be responsible pet guardians and have their family pet(s) altered but are in need of financial assistance to do so.
Spay and neutering lead to a healthier, happier pet and decreases their chance of getting cancer by about 50%. It prevents “accidental litters” and ensures enough great homes for those animals waiting in shelters and rescue facilities. CCHS pays 100% for a rabies vaccination if done at the same time as spay/neuter.
Animal Welfare – This program offers assistance when a guardian is faced with large veterinary bills and unable to meet the expense. While we can’t pay the entire bill, we might offer funds to offset the cost. Each case is unique.
CCHS helps with the costs of a range of issues, including itchy skin, worms, fighting injuries, lethargic/listlessness, salmon poisoning, trouble breathing, broken bones, URI – Upper respiratory infection, UTI – Urinary Tract Infection, etc.
Dental – An “ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure .” It is vitally important to give your pet regular dental cleanings. Without it, substantial problems develop. It becomes much more costly to cure a diseased jawbone, an infection caused by rotten teeth, or a gastrointestinal upset due to the presence of infection. Taking care of preventive maintenance upfront is very cost-effective, and CCHS is here to help!
Veterinary Medications – This is offered on a case-by-case basis and not a continual supply.
Vaccinations – CCHS does not generally pay for routine vaccinations. We ask that you check out Oregon Mobile Veterinary (OMV) at www.oregonmobilevet.com. They come to the Rogue Ale Restaurant parking lot in Newport once a month. The OMV performs the required exam but does not charge for it. Contact them at (503) 389-8987 or online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Euthanasia – The cost of a veterinarian recommended euthanasia will be covered when a pet is too sick to recover.
We will not pay for the euthanasia of a healthy pet. Until a new shelter is built, CCHS and FOLCAS are covering the cost of communal cremation.
Rehoming Assistance – We offer assistance when you must give up your beloved family pet(s). You will deal directly with potential adopters so you can screen them and ensure your pet(s) go to a good, safe, and nurturing home.
