2014 World Spay Day

Posted on: February 21st, 2014 by CCSPCA


WHAT:  CCSPCA to Participate in 2014 World Spay Day Campaign

WHEN:  Beginning February 25, 2014

WHERE: CCSPCA 103 S. Hughes Fresno CA 93706

WHY:  The CCSPCA will participate in the 2014 World Spay Day, an international campaign that promotes the life-saving benefits of spaying/neutering pets, by performing 50 free spay/neuter surgeries on cats and dogs.

Appointments will be accepted and spay/neuter vouchers will be given to the first 20 dog owners and 30 cat owners who appear in person at the CCSPCA Small Animal Hospital at 1:00 PM on Tuesday, February 25.  Pets must be at least 4 months old and current on vaccines or over 6 months old without vaccines.  For additional questions, please call 559-237-1125.

Advantages to spaying/neutering pets:  Spaying and neutering pets is not only a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, but altering pets increases their chances to live longer and healthier.  There are medical and behavioral advantages to spaying/neutering pets.  According to the American Veterinarian Medical Association (AVMA), spaying or neutering pets can dramatically reduce or eliminate the risk of developing certain types of cancers in both males and females. Additionally, altered dogs and cats are less likely to mark their territory; wander and become lost; get hit by cars while searching for mates, and are less likely to bite or become aggressive.

About World Spay Day: Since World Spay Day’s inception in 1995, it is conservatively estimated that participating organizations have spayed or neutered nearly two million animals. This year, Tuesday, February 25 is designated as World Spay Day with spay/neuter events taking place throughout the entire month.

About CCSPCA:  Our vision is to lead our community in promoting the quality of life for animals.  Our mission is to provide protection, placement, and education to ensure responsible animal care.

CCSPCA to Compete in ASPCA Rachel Ray $100K Challenge

Posted on: February 5th, 2014 by CCSPCA

ASPCA Rachel Ray 100K Logo

WHEN: June, July & August 2014

WHERE: Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

WHY:   We’re Up to the Challenge! Are You? We have some amazing news.  The Central California SPCA has just been named one of only 50 shelters in the country to compete in the fifth and final 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. We’ll be competing by getting you, our community, involved in helping us save more lives this June, July, and August than we saved last year. And while that will be an important win in and of itself, the stakes are even higher. Working with you to save more lives can help us earn anywhere from $5,000 to $100,000 in grant money from the ASPCA.  That money will be used to reduce adoption fees during our 2014 Home for the Holidays adoption promotion to save even more lives.

Hundreds of shelters tried to get into this year’s $100K Challenge, and we succeeded. Now the CCSPCA  staff, volunteers and supporters are raring to get started on a successful campaign that will attract more volunteers and supporters, and make sure everyone in the Fresno area knows that this is the best place to find a new furry family member. In short, with your help, we’re going to save more lives than we ever have before!

Shila Korean BBQ Restaurant Raises $3,200 for Central California SPCA

Posted on: November 4th, 2013 by CCSPCA

Shila Korean BBQ Restaurant Raises $3,200 for Central California SPCA 

Shila Korean BBQ Restaurant and community members banded together on September 23, 24, and 25 to celebrate the restaurant’s Grand Opening and raise money to benefit the CCSPCA.

“We had a wonderful turnout for our event,” said local owner Liqun (Lee) Zhang.  “Thank you to the greater Fresno/Clovis communities for your generous participation and support.”  Both Lee and his wife, Alicia Marie Amaya, are animal lovers and have two dogs, Cookie and Bokdoli.

Shila Korean BBQ donated the proceeds of $3,200 on October 18 at its Clovis location.  The proceeds will be used entirely for the CCSPCA’s low income, low cost spay/neuter program, Snip N Chip.

“As a non-profit, we rely heavily on the generosity of our supporters,” said Linda Van Kirk, Executive Director of the CCSPCA.  “Lee’s donation and partnership represents the type of community spirit that ensures our spay/neuter programs will continue to make strides in ending our community’s homeless pet population.” 

We are very grateful for this opportunity to partner with Shila Korean BBQ.

National Dog Week

Posted on: September 26th, 2013 by CCSPCA

In recognition of National Dog Week, September 22-28, our Junior Volunteers are sponsoring a dog for a week. On Sunday they volunteered their time at our Animal Center where they were able to pick a dog whose adoption they wanted to promote and to find a home for. They were able to spend some quality time providing attention and exercise to the dog they chose in order to enhance its adaptability.

At the end of the day each volunteer created a biography card of the dog they worked with. By stepping into the shoes of our Adoption Agents, the Junior Volunteers learned the process of an adoption along with recognizing healthy behavior in a dog and the hard work it can take trying to find a home for one of the many animals that come to our Animal Center.

Through compassion and caring, our Junior Volunteers are making a positive difference for the animals while also becoming a positive influence for their peers.
