During the holiday season, Redwood Coast Humane Society has two ways to help out our local lost and abandoned animals

  • Our Christmas tree at WestAmerica Bank from December 1 until Christmas day. Fill out a contribution form and hang in on the tree.
  • Beginning two weeks before Christmas until Christmas Eve, RCHS wraps holiday presents for anyone who brings their presents to Sundstrom Mall, where we have wrap your presents for a minimal fee.


There are many ways to volunteer, ranging from dog fostering to writing articles for the news letter. You can choose to work from one hour a year to 100 hours a year. The choice is yours.


Redwood Coast Humane Society provides foster care for homeless and surrendered cats and dogs. Foster care includes attending to physical and emotional well-being of the animal. Under the guidance of the dog or cat coordinator, foster parents are asked to seek veterinary care, keep records regarding the animal in their care, and interview prospective owners. A volunteer will assist each new fosterer until he or she is comfortable as a foster parent or family.

Read for Cats and Dogs

If you enjoy books, here is another way you can help our work. Kathy Kopfer at The Sea Trader (38640 S. Highway 1, Gualala) has a special shelf of books whose proceeds go directly to help support our work. You can also donate gently used books to Kathy to sell.
