FOLCAS Gets Check From ROGUE

"Big Al" Jorgensen (left) of the Rogue Foundation presents FOLCAS directors Karen Dichari (center) and Erica Fruh (right) with a check for $3,000 at the Rogue booth on Locals Night at the Seafood & Wine Festival. This generous gift represents a share of the proceeds of the most recent Brewer's Memorial Ale Festival, the Rogue's dog-friendly festival of beer and food held annually at the brewery in South Beach in memory of brewmaster John Maier's beloved black lab Brewer to benefit local animal groups.

Thanks to the generosity of so many in our community and beyond . . .


After being gravely injured by a hit-and-run driver in October, this beloved local husky has undergone months of surgeries, physical therapy, & other treatments to rebuild his physical and emotional health. Generous donations from the community have helped his family offset their thousands of dollars of medical expenses and enabled them to devote the necessary resources to his healing.

From Atman’s family, mid-January:

 We are thrilled to report that Atman is doing amazingly well. He is getting his confidence back and now uses his leg about 95% of the time. Because of the reconstruction of his hip and pelvic area, he now walks with a John Wayne swagger! He is greeting other dogs on the beach, and if they get too frisky he just sits down. He is greeting people and giving out kisses like he used to. He is figuring out how to use his body differently to enjoy the things he likes to do, like dig in the sand, without falling over on his side. He enjoys taking walks in the woods again and standing in the creek the way he always used to do."

“When we took him for his physical therapy appointment this past Monday, the therapist said the speed of his recovery has been nothing short of a miracle. We think that has much to do with all the love and well wishes coming from so many people for him, as well as with her skill, dedication, and guidance and his own strong spirit. Again we cannot express how grateful we are to all of you for your kindness.”

Cleaning Up at the Shelter

Boomer, the resident Shelter cat, under the supervision of Senior Animal Care Specialist Lisa Field, inspects the new laundry machines purchased by FOLCAS (Friends of Lincoln County Animals) for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. Following an electrical scare at the Shelter at the end of August, FOLCAS paid for the wiring and plumbing of a new interim laundry area pending longer-term plans for the aging Shelter facility.
