Donations and Support
Outright Gifts – Gifts from the Heart
Make a gift directly to CCSPCA today! Outright gifts are for those supporters and donors who wish to see their charitable dollars at work during their lifetime. If you are considering making a gift to CCSPCA, you may do so with a variety of assets including cash, stocks and/or bonds, real estate or tangible property of value such as cars, furniture, artwork, or special collections. These types of donations allow you to take a current income tax deduction for the value of the gift, based upon the principle of fair market value.
Unless otherwise designated, all gifts received help us to support the following:
- Adoption Programs
- Low Cost Spay/Neuter and Microchip Programs
- Foster Care Program
- Community and Education Outreach
- Humane Investigations and Officer Recruitment/Training
Monetary donations are easily made via PayPal, regular postal service, or in person.
Wills, Trusts, and Bequests
Estate Planning: Animals give unconditional love, affection, and friendship to us each and every day. For many of us they have played a vital role in enriching our lives. By including the CCSPCA in your estate planning, you help enrich the lives of so many others by supporting our efforts to provide shelter, adoption, and humane investigation services to the animals in our community.

Workplace Campaigns, Company Matching Grants, and Monthly Deductions
Be a Pet Lover Advocate and start a workplace campaign! It’s well known that employees want to work for companies that care and prefer to work for those businesses who are socially responsible, encourage community involvement, and in many instances, are willing to match employee contributions.
For employers, employee giving campaigns and matching grants greatly improve employee morale and create a positive corporate image within the greater Fresno Community.
Keys to successfully implementing an employee giving campaign include:
- Recruiting the right person to initiate and lead the campaign
- Making it easy to give
- Setting goals for employee participation
- Communicating and publicizing the campaign in multiple ways at your place of business
- Acknowledging and thanking employees who participate
For more information on how you can start an employee campaign, please contact email@example.com or call 559.233.7722 ext. 150.

Just complete our Third-Party Fundraising Application and submit it for approval.
Wellness Fund – Donations of Medical Assistance
Donations of medical assistance of individual animals are available.
Donations toward a medical fund to help those animals in need of extra medical procedures such as cherry-eye surgery, inguinal hernia repair, etc., are very welcomed. These types of procedures are at an additional expense to the shelter which then applies the cost to the adoption fee at a greatly discounted price. The animal medical donation fund helps to offset the cost of these procedures rather than applying additional fees to the cost of an animal’s adoption.
If the amount of the donation(s) exceeds the actual cost of medical assistance, funds will be applied to help future animals in need of medical assistance.
Sponsorships of individual animals are not available.
Understandably, many sponsors want to give money as a form of insurance in an effort to help an animal become adopted and kept from being euthanized. Unfortunately, with over 20,000 animals entering the shelter each year we cannot ever guarantee that this will not happen.
Sadly, pets in shelters, especially those who stay long term, may develop behavior issues which make the pet unsafe for adoption. Kennel stress can cause pets that did well at intake to become aggressive to other pets and people. If these problems cannot be re-mediated by behavior modification or changes in schedule and environment, we may need to make the decision to humanely euthanize the pet.
We are not able to place pets into homes where they might try to harm people or other pets. It is also possible that a pet may develop an illness so debilitating that the prognosis of recovery is poor. If our staff feels that recovery is unlikely or that the pet is suffering, the pet will be euthanized.
