Collect Shoes and Save Lives

Would you ever think that your old shoes could help save animals lives? Well they can and here's how! During the months of September and October, the Lincoln County Animal Shelter is raising money for our Medical Trust Fund, but there is nothing for you to buy or sell--all we need is your support and old shoes. Do you have shoes that have been outgrown or that have gone out of style? Please bring them to the Animal Shelter where we can earn money for our Medical Trust Fund and the shoes will help individuals in developing nations. Our goal is to collect 2,500 pairs of shoes--every pair counts and every dollar saves lives!

We can accept any shoes in decent condition (like ones you would give to a friend).  You can bring shoes to the Animal Shelter, and there are collection bins at the Waldport Barbershop and at LeRoy's Blue Whale in Yachats.

Want to help us surpass our goal? Maybe challenge your friends to see who can collect the most shoes, start a competition between classrooms at school, let your church members know, or ask a business to be a collection site (with an offer to deliver the shoes).

All of the funds raised will go to our Medical Fund that allow us to get homeless animals the medical care that they need from routine dental care to emergency surgeries. Thank you, Lincoln County!



Join us October 23, 2016  for a fun morning crawling under nets, scaling straw bales, and stomping through mud puddles with your pup (or a shelter pup) while helping homeless animals! You may run a .5, 1.5, or 2 loop with easy obstacles along the way, or just hang out by the DJ and try parts of an agility course. Waves of runners (and walkers) every 15 minutes from 10 am to noon at the WILDER DOG PARK in South Beach.

Friendly pups may participate with a 6 foot  (non-retractable) leash and kids need a parent or guardian. Registration is $20, but just $5 for kids under 12. There will be prizes for best costume.

Don't forget to bring shoes to donate for our shoe drive, which also benefits the medical fund!

Parking available at the Oregon Coast Community College.

Register online here. Day of registration onsite is by cash or check only.
