West Coast Dog and Cat Rescue

West Coast Dog and Cat Rescue (WCDC) is an all-volunteer animal rescue organization.

WCDC began as a program to find homes for hard to place cats from Lane County Animal Services by using PetSmart as an off-site adoption center. In 2007, WCDC was incorporated as a 501©(3) group and began assisting the people of Lane County with both cats and dogs. As a no-kill program, we fully support and practice the philosophy of saving all adoptable and treatable pets.

Our mission is to provide care and find loving homes for companion animals of our community, with a focus on those with special needs.

We need YOUR HELP to achieve a no-kill community here in Lane County. The money you give goes directly to purchase life- saving medications, fund spaying and neutering, fund emergency surgeries, and enable us to place more animals in permanent homes.

*Secure donations can be made at www.westcoastdogandcat.org or by
*mailing a check to WCDC PO Box 72401 Springfield, OR 97475.

Remember we are tax deductible; just specify if you would like a receipt!


Since its inception, WCDC has placed over 1,600 pets into their forever homes. In addition to our 3 adoption sites at PetSmart, Chad Dr. & 29th & Willamette and Petco, foster families throughout the community offer sanctuary to those in need of more extensive care.

Special Needs Pets
WCDC focuses on relieving local humane societies, animal rescue groups, and government agencies of their “special needs” pets. These special needs may be due to physical disabilities, behavioral issues, overcrowding in the shelter, specific medical needs, or just because they’ve been waiting a long time for a home. WCDC provides rehabilitation in nurturing foster homes for these harder-to-place pets to recover while allowing space to open up in the overtaxed shelter. WCDC is able to assist the public with pets in urgent need on a limited basis as well.

Feral Cat Populations
WCDC is a strong presence in our community as an active resource and support system for Trap Neuter Release (TNR) of feral cats. TNR helps the community by stabilizing the population of the feral colony and, over time, reducing it.TNR creates more space for the cats and kittens who come from other avenues.
