West Coast Dog and Cat Rescue began in 2006 as a program to find homes for cats from Lane County Animal Regulation Authority in Oregon using the PetSmart retail chain stores as an off-site adoption center. In 2007, WCDC expanded its mission to help both cats and dogs from all over the community. Organizational shifts realigned our focus solely for the rescue, care and placement of cats since 2010. WCDC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Since its inception, WCDC has saved over 2500 cats and found them wonderful, loving homes. WCDC currently has cats in the following locations. Thanks to your donations and the dedication of our valuable volunteers, the future is bright. Volunteer with us at this link.
Key focus points for WCDC include:
- The necessity to spay and neuter to reduce pet overpopulation
- The importance of adoption
- The humane treatment of animals
- How to deal with feral cats through TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return)
WCDC works with humane societies, many animal rescue groups, the public and government animal services agencies to find the animals a permanent home through our adoption process. We provide all needed medical care, disease testing and vaccinations to ensure a successful adoption. As a no-kill program, we fully support and practice the philosophy of saving all adoptable and treatable animals.
