9 Lives For $9 Adoption Promo

Posted on: July 18th, 2014 by CCSPCA

As a special ASPCA Rachel Ray 100K Challenge adoption promo the CCSPCA is offering a “9 Lives for $9” cat adoption promotion.  When you adopt a feline companion on July 18 – 31, you will only pay $9!  Think 9 times the love.

Cat adoption fees include: spay/neuter surgery, microchip, FVRCP vaccination, deworming, flea/tick treatment, complimentary exam at the CCSPCA Small Animal Hospital, FREE gift of up to $750 in pet insurance, and cardboard carrier.

The CCSPCA hopes that offering the “9 Lives for $9” adoption promo will lead to increased cat adoptions, as we compete to win the 100K Challenge. The CCSPCA is setting the goal of saving 2,880 pets this summer! 

Reduced reclaim fees during the July 4th holiday

Posted on: June 24th, 2014 by CCSPCA

The CCSPCA is pleased to announce a reduction in Reclaim Fees from June 23 to July 13, 2014. An impounded stray dog may be returned to the owner for one of the following fees:

  • $12 license fee for an altered dog with all other fees waived, or
  • $50 license fee on an unaltered dog with all other fees waived, or
  • May surrender the unaltered dog to the CCSPCA at no charge, then adopt the dog for the current promotional fee of $28.80 and receive a licensed and altered dog.

More pets become lost during the July 4th holiday than any other time of year. Our goal is to reunite you with your lost family member as quickly as possible at a reduced fee. So please check our lost & found page on our website and come to our Stray Animal Building if your pet is missing.

Bullard High School Students “Volunteer for a Day” at CCSPCA

Posted on: December 27th, 2013 by CCSPCA

by Thalia Arenas, Humane Educator

On December 22 a group of Bullard High School students signed-up for our “Volunteer for a Day” program. Their volunteer time was an all-in-one service, as they received a presentation about the CCSPCA, toured our animal center, and volunteered right after.  The students put together some wonderful items for the animals: bird feeders, enrichment toys for the rabbits, horse treats, puppy pad rolls, and cat toys.   But most importantly, they socialized with our canines who needed a little extra exercise, time, and attention.  We look forward to next semester’s Bullard High students and invite other high school students to participate in the Junior Animal Advocate volunteer workshops at the CCSPCA.  For more information, please contact our Education Department at (559) 233-0115.

Court Decision Made in Kahler Animal Cruelty Case

Posted on: September 6th, 2013 by CCSPCA

We are very pleased that the court saw the evidence for what it was and convicted Mr. Dana Kahler on the animal cruelty charges. However, we are very disappointed that the punishment does not fit the crime. The court chose to disregard the prosecution’s recommendation for the maximum punishment allowable for this heinous act. Not only did Mr. Kahler deliberately abuse and neglect his 19 horses, he cost this community thousands of dollars to bring these poor animals back to good health.
