Ways to Give

Your support of CCAS gives dogs a second chance and a new life.
Dick Goddard Best Friends Medical Relief Fund

When you donate, you support the lifesaving work we are doing for homeless dogs at CCAS. Donations to this fund provide veterinary care to injured and ailing dogs in need of more than just routine care. Since our dogs are lost and stray, many animals come to us needing extensive veterinary care to allow them to go on to live happy, healthy lives. Donate once or give monthly. Any contribution is appreciated and tails will wag!
