In 2011, Animal Haven By The Sea was founded by Lee Blackmon to respond to the needs of animals in North Tillamook County.
With a population of just over 25,000, this large, rural county covers 1133 miles.
The north of the county hugs the ocean corridor between beach and mountains and has fewer than 4000 population, many of whom are retirees.
Lee Blackmon is the primary responder when animals are lost, sick or in need of a forever home.
Local volunteers and business owners have supported the non-profit organization with time and money.
For such a small population, it is a challenge to raise the funds needed to keep the center running.
Without the shelter, there will be nowhere animals in need can be taken.
The Rescue needs volunteers with experience in writing grant applications, fundraising event coordination, community networking, marketing, & financial management to name just a few areas of need that are waiting for your talent and commitment.
Yes, your time and donations are needed. You can also help by spreading our link in all your communications such as email and sites like Facebook:
