South Coast Humane Society in Brookings has been selected Business of the Year Award by Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

Each year the chamber asks its membership for nominations for the award, according to Les Cohen, chamber executive director. Nominees are businesses that are not only successful, but that have also been actively involved in the community during the past year, emulating the chamber’s mission “… of helping to create and maintain a viable economy that provides all citizens with a high quality of life.”

Nominations are reviewed by the chamber’s board of directors and awardees are selected by a majority vote. 

 

Nominations referenced South Coast Humane Society as “… keeping animals safe and healthy; … providing free spay and neutering services, and … school-based and general population education programs.”

“We at South Coast Humane Society are incredibly proud to have received the Business of the Year Award from the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce,” said Audrey Morris-Bartreau, SCHS director. “We appreciate the recognition of the work we do for our community and really want to thank everyone for their continued support.

“Our shelter, low-cost veterinary clinic, animal food bank, and fundraising thrift store could not continue to grow and thrive without the help of the businesses and individuals in our community who do so much to help.”

Previous recipients include Best Western Brookings Inn (now known as Brookings Inn Resort); The Book Dock; Chetco Federal Credit Union, Kerr’s Ace Hardware, Best Western Beachfront Inn, KURY Radio, CAL-OR Insurance Specialists Inc. and Slugs ’N Stones ’N Ice Cream Cones.
