Under Oregon law, animal caregivers must meet "minimum standards of care," which means care sufficient to preserve the health and well-being of the animal. Essentially, it means animals must be provided with potable water, food, shelter, a clean environment, and proper veterinary care. If you believe minimum care standards are not being met, or if you believe an animal is being physically abused, has been abandoned, or is in immediate danger, please contact an Animal Services Deputy at 541-265-0777. You may also submit a citizen report online. Law enforcement may decide to remove or seize the animal and may place him or her in protective custody with Lincoln County Animal Shelter (LCAS).
