This is a great humane society that seems to do all it can with limited funds. I volunteered at the shelter in 2011 as a dog walker. The dogs were walked on long paths through the woods multiple times a day, their cages were always kept clean and dry, and the staff worked hard to maintain their mental health. The shelter was thoroughly cleaned in the mornings, and every animal was treated individually.
The volunteers were treated with respect, and seemed to be honestly valued by the staff members. It was a great experience. I think that if a pet needs to find temporary shelter, this would be one of the best places for them to land.
Since that experience, I moved across the country. If I was still in the area, I would love to volunteer at this organization again.
I have been a donor to the Coastal Humane Society since 2004 and a volunteer since October 2008. Volunteers are treated with honor and respect here and donors are kept informed through a quarterly newsletter and timely acknowledgement of monetary and in-kind donations. Donations are used prudently and without waste.
