What You Are Supporting

CAHS is a local and independent nonprofit. We are not a government agency and we receive no funding through tax dollars.

Community donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations allow us to save thousands of animals in need each year. These direct public contributions make up 65.8% of critical funding for homeless pets that arrive to our shelter.
