The holiday season is about spreading joy - and at CCAS, we’ve got plenty of furry joy to spread. To help make the holiday season even better, we’re offering a special home for the holidays free adoption promotion.  Read below to learn about how you can adopt love for free, as well as what you can do to keep your pets safe, this holiday season.   
 
And on behalf of everyone at CCAS, we’d like to wish you and yours a happy and safe holiday season.

November Giving Drive

November Giving Drive Success


Because of your amazing generosity, CCAS raised over $12,000 during our November Giving Drive that will go to support our medical division. Because the campaign was so successful, we have extended the drive to run through Dec. 8th (this Saturday) so that we can raise even more funding to continue treating the severe medical case animals who come through our shelter.
 
To everyone who has contributed to our Giving Drive, we (and the animals) simply can’t thank you enough. You’re generosity and compassion inspires us and makes possible many happy endings. To everyone who is considering giving during the final week of the drive, please click on the donation button on our website: http://www.co.contra-costa.ca.us/59/Animal-Services
