Fosters Needed!

We are looking for responsible animal lovers who are looking to become a fos- ter for our sanctuary. It is a very rewarding experience. Fosters help us take in  kittens, cats and dogs who we otherwise can not. CCAD covers ALL the nec- essary veterinary care expenses for your foster. We support you in every step  of the way. Benefits of Fostering:  You are saving a life! By fostering, you make it possible for CCAD to rescue a dog or cat from a kill-facility. Without foster homes to provide temporary care for dogs and cats, CCAD is limited in the number of homeless animals we are able to rescue.  Through the socialization and home environment you provide, you increase that  animal’s chance of being adopted! As you learn about the dog’s and/or cat’s per- sonality, our rescue group is better able to place them in permanent homes. This is a  wonderful gift you can give to people looking to adopt.  Your own pet will learn more social skills and have a temporary companion and playmate! It’s a good way to see if you are ready for an additional pet. It’s not always clear whether an additional pet would fit in with your family at the present time. With fostering, you have a chance to see whether or not adopting is right for your family. Maybe providing temporary foster care is better for you.  The dog or cat gets to live with your family rather than at a shelter! Animals get  stressed from shelter conditions. With time, many cats and dogs develop psychologi- cal issues as pent-up energy, frustration, aggression or boredom builds. Home envi- ronments and one-on-one attention prevent this.   Fostering lets you actively participate in the rehabilitation of a traumatized or needy animal! Due to the attention and security you give them in your home, your foster can become very different—less timid and less emotionally or physically injured.  It’s a way to help without spending much money! CCAD is responsible for ALL the necessary veterinary care expenses for your foster. We will support you every step of the way.  Any volunteering makes a person feel good! Fostering is a way to give back to your community. If you love animals, there is nothing more rewarding than helping a homeless dog or cat.  Fostering teaches children about compassion, generosity, and responsibility!  There are MANY other reasons to consider becoming a foster, but most of all, fostering is incred- ibly satisfying! The day your foster finds their perfect forever home is a day of rejoicing and  knowing that they wouldn’t be where they are without all of your efforts and affection!

Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary: Work Days

201507141734192397We are finally ready to move forward on our Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary project, and we need YOUR help!

On Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th from 8am until mid-afternoon we’ll be working again at the Sanctuary. There is a wide variety of small and large jobs to tackle, both inside the house and outside on the grounds. Please consider giving some time this weekend to help move the Sanctuary forward. The sooner we are able to get the place ready for occupancy, the sooner we will be able to relocate!

If you are unavailable to help on our Sanctuary work days, please consider supporting our efforts to build a new home for our cats and dogs by making a donation. Thank you for your support!

URGENT!! Foster Families Needed!

foster2 We are in DESPERATE need of foster families for kittens and dogs! We cannot continue rescuing dogs from kill shelters if we have nowhere to put them. Please consider opening your hearts and homes to a dog in need. We currently have several dogs waiting at Dandyland Pet Care Center in Centreville for a foster or forever home, including the dogs pictured (Bo & Luke, our July Dogs of the Month) and 2 senior Terrier Mix sisters (Miki and Mikalya), who should not have to spend their golden years in a kennel!
