CCSPCA Participates in Fashion Fair Kid’s Day

Posted on: August 18th, 2014 by CCSPCA
On Tuesday, August 11th, 2014 we collaborated with Fresno’s Fashion Fair Mall’s Kids Club powered by Nat Geo Kids, to promote animal welfare and provide activities to the children in order to learn more about animals.  Activities included animal sing-a-longs, freebies, and a reptile show!  Information about our 100K Challenge was also distributed. 

Our Education Department has Junior Animal Education workshops for kids 8-13 years old, year-round.  In order to create a more humane community, we must show our children compassion for animals through animal education programs.  If you would like to enroll your child in our Junior Program, please contact (559) 233-0115 or education@ccspca.com.

Adoption Fees Waived for Military Veterans

Posted on: July 21st, 2014 by CCSPCA


We are waiving all adoption fees for military veterans from July 21 – July 31.

The CCSPCA would like to express gratitude for the role that veterans played in keeping our country and community safe.  Our adoption special is a way to say “thank you” to veterans – the Life Savers of our country.

The lessons pets teach us about love, loyalty and gratitude are those that resonate with many in the community and particularly with those who have chosen to dedicate their lives to service.

Adoption Special Extended Through July 20th!

In commemoration of July 4, the CCSPCA would like to express gratitude for the role that first responders play in keeping our community safe. Our adoption special is a way to say “thank you” to peace officers, fire, active military, paramedics or emergency medical technicians, and search & rescue – the Life Savers of our community. We are waiving adoption fees for all first responders!

The lessons pets teach us about love, loyalty and gratitude are those that resonate with many in the community and particularly with those who have chosen to dedicate their lives to service.

This adoption special goes from July 1 – July 13.
