What We Do
CAWS is a group of volunteers. We are not a government organization, animal shelter or animal control agency. We call on the community to partner with us and to assist us as you can when you see a need. Only together can we improve the care and treatment of dogs and cats in our community and reduce the overpopulation of unwanted animals by responsible ownership.
Our charge is to:
Educate the public on the importance of spaying & neutering, provide information on where and how to get your dog spayed or neutered and to organize occasional low-cost spay and neuter clinics.
Provide basic health maintenance to homeless dogs and cats in our ongoing “Stray Care” program; with the goal of getting them healthy, off the streets and into a home.
Inform the public about dogs in need and provide information on how to get those dogs help.
We are a connection to find a pet, provide info about animals in need of homes, send out alerts for lost pets, and we can refer you to your local registered Veterinarian.
Take in animals because we are not a shelter.
Assist with requests to assist with medical treatments for found, injured, and privately-owned dogs. If you see or have an animal in need of medical treatment, please call your local Veterinarian for immediate assistance. We are unable to assist with animal emergencies.
