Eileen Hawthorne Fund for Animals

Eileen Hawthorne FundMISSION:
The Eileen Hawthorne Fund for Animals (EHF) is a non-profit 501 c 3 corporation formed in 1984 for the purpose of reducing the population of homeless and feral cats on the Mendocino coast. Our mission has expanded to providing support to cats and dogs during medical emergencies on behalf of community members with low incomes.

To carry out our mission, EHF:
Provides spay/neuter financial assistance for those in need
Has an Emergency Fund to assist with vet costs for dogs and cats in need
Makes donations of cat food to our local Food Bank and feral colonies
Gives classroom presentations in local schools on pet care
Sponsors subscriptions of Kind News (Humane Society publication) for coastal 1st and 3rd grade students

FIV Cat Rescue (FIVCR)

Education | Advocating | Saving Lives

FIV Cat Rescue logoMISSION:
Our primary mission is to end the out-dated and unjustified killing of cats based of the presence of FIV antibodies.

#1: End the killing of FIV+ cats by educating everyone involved:
> Work with FIV researchers to create the latest FIV educational materials
> Educate vets on the latest research treatments
> Distribute research findings to shelters, so they can update their kill policies based on current research
> Create and maintain a public national US database of shelters, rescues and sanctuaries that accept FIV+ cats
> Provide rescuers and caregivers tools to save FIV+ cats
> Help folks trying to save single FIV+ cats
> Educate the general public about FIV facts.

#2: Provide long-term solutions so "saved" cats lead long, healthy, happy lives:
> Create a "Forever-Home Location System" of networked online resources
> Educate shelters on how to find good homes for these special cats with not-so-special needs
> Promote spay-and-neuter programs to stop over-population, spread of disease, and euthanasia.

#3: Provide dual support roles:
> Save the few: provide information and support for individual FIV+ cats in desperate situations, often certain death is days or hours away.
> Save the many: change the prevailing culture from Kill to Love for all those with a FIV+ diagnosis.

We are a voice for these cats and hope to ultimately save those whose only "defect" is antibodies to a virus, not the actual virus.

MCDOG - Mendocino Coast Dog Owners Group

Providing Places to Play Off-Leash

MISSION:
Mendocino Coast Dog Owners Group's (MCDOG) creates and maintains dog parks where people and dogs can play, exercise, and socialize. We promote responsible dog-people relationships, work to enhance a sense of community, and contribute to the economy of a region dependent on tourists - many of whom travel with canine companions.

MCDOG is a volunteer group that creates and maintains dog parks and an off-leash beach on the Mendocino Coast. The beach is at the mouth of the Noyo River; the fenced parks are in Fort Bragg and Mendocino.

Noyo Beach is one of the few ocean beaches north of San Francisco where one can officially let their dog off-leash - a must for anyone visiting with a dog. There's ample space to roam without worrying about cars or roads.

The Fort Bragg Dog Park is on the grounds of the C.V. Starr Community Center, 300 S. Lincoln. The park is a joint project of MCDOG and the Mendocino Coast Recreation and Park District (MCRPD). It is a fenced area where well-behaved dogs romp between dawn and dusk. The park has two fields, one for big dogs and another for small and shy dogs. Visit on a sunny afternoon and you'll find a dozen or more dogs enjoying the park with their people.

The Mendocino Dog Park is smaller with fewer dogs and a single fenced field. It's located on the grounds of MCRPD's Mendocino Community Center, on School Street.

There is no cost to use the parks, and memberships are not required. However, your dog should be licensed, and must be spayed or neutered, and well-behaved off-leash. Like most dog parks, you will be expected to follow a few posted rules and aggressive dogs will be asked to leave.

LOCATIONS:
Beach: Noyo Harbor, Highway 1, Fort Bragg
Dog Park-Fort Bragg : 300 S. Lincoln, Fort Bragg
Dog Park-Mendocino : School Street, Mendocino

Keeping Animals Out of Shelters and in Loving Homes

MISSION:
To keep animals out of shelters and in loving homes.

Low Cost Microchip Clinics - holds microchip clinics throughout the year to ensure the safe return of pets if they should stray.

Redemption Fees - provides financial assistances to low-income community members who cannot afford to reclaim their pets picked up by Animal Control and taken to the Ukiah Animal Shelter.

Financial Medical Assistance for Shelter Animals - provides financial assistance for local shelter animals in need of costly medical treatment. If an animal needs extensive medical care, beyond that which the shelter can provide, S.O.S. will raise funds to help pay vet bills on a case-to-case basis.

Networking for Lost & Found Companion Animals - posts photos and information on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages, of lost and found pets. We also network with other animal advocacy groups to help lost and found animals find their way back home.

Education and Information - provides educational material to our community about proper care for pets. We stress spay/neuter as the humane way to end pet overpopulation rather than killing unwanted companion animals. S.O.S. provides contact information as to where to go for pet assistance.

Regional Solution - is currently working with the County, City of Fort Bragg and local animal advocacy groups to create a cooperative solution for all homeless animals on the coast.
