CAAWS cannot receive every animal into our Foster program. Our Foster program works directly with Animal Control to decrease the number of animals that are euthanized. CAAWS will work with you, the caring pet owner of an animal in need, to ensure a suitable permanent home can be found.

If you have a pet you can no longer keep, or are providing temporary care for a stray animal, CAAWS operates two Public Assistance programs. By registering in one or both of our programs, CAAWS provides high exposure adoption opportunities for the animal.

 

Public Assistance: Online Listing

If you are interested in listing your dog or cat alongside all of our other adoptable pets on our website, we ask for a $20 listing fee and the medical records, a brief description, and picture of your animal. Your pet will also be listed on Petfinder.com and AdoptAPet.com.

To ensure a healthy adoptable animal, and due to our current adoption guidelines, CAAWS requires a vet check of all animals registered in the Public Assistance Programs. If you have not or are not able to meet the requirements for admission please do contact us regardless. We have many assistance programs that we might be able to offer you to help get you and your animal ready, as well as advice on how best to re-home your pets with or without our assistance.
