COOS COUNTY, Ore. – After more than 50 neglected animals were seized from a local residence, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help caring for the animals.

Deputies said the Coos County Sheriff’s Office Posse is caring for the animals, which include:

  • 11 horses
  • 3 donkeys
  • 7 goats
  • 7 cats
  • 4 dogs
  • 18 pigs
  • 3 turkeys

Deputies said due to the large number of animals, resources are dwindling.

Community members who would like to help can make donations through PayPal. The link is available on the Coos County Animal Shelter’s Facebook page.

If you would like to donate items or volunteer, go to the Coos County Animal Control Office, 92690 South Port Road, Coos Bay. You can also call 541-751-2480.

The sheriff’s office is looking into whether or not the animals can be adopted to the public. If interested in adopting, deputies recommend checking periodically with the animal shelter.
