Since our capacity for housing cats is very limited at this time, CCAS has adopted other ways to help the local animal community and their guardians.
Spay and Neuter Program for Rescued Cats: As an agency and animal advocates, reducing pet overpopulation is an area we are greatly concerned about. Part of our outreach program in Bailey and the surrounding area includes assisting people who rescue homeless pets in obtaining neuter and spay services. CCAS is partnering with Crow Hill Pet Hospital in Bailey to offer this program as funds permit.
Rehoming and Adoption Services: Another resource CCAS provides is adoption assistance to facilitate rehoming pets that need to be moved due to unforeseen circumstances, with priority given to special needs pets and pet guardians. These services are offered on a case-by-case basis, with no guarantee of placement.
This is an alternative to relinquishing pets to a shelter which can be traumatic for both the pets and families, and places the pet at risk of euthanasia. A donation (adoption fee) is required to cover any costs incurred and adoption services. In emergency cases, temporary foster care may be provided, when available. Applications and background checks are required for placement. All pets that need to be rehomed must have current medical records that prove the pet has been spayed or neutered and are up to date on all shots and vaccinations.
