Animal Control Services Announcement / Community Questions

Posted on: March 28th, 2012 by CCSPCA

We will continue to answer questions that the community may have about the changes coming as  of October 1st 2012, when we will no longer provide Animal Control Services for the City and County of Fresno.  At this time we are still providing Animal Control Services. We have opted to be supportive of the City and County during this 6 month transition period and we’ll continue to be here for our community as we have always been. Please submit questions that you have so that we can address them. Thank you for your compassion, interest and sharing. Each posting should answer three new questions. 

1. Is the Central California SPCA funded by a national SPCA that you report to?

No, there is not a national SPCA or any other national organization that provides funding or oversight to local SPCA organizations. All SPCA’s and Humane Societies are independent organizations and have independent Boards of Directors, By-laws, Policies and Procedures. Each organization has different funding as well. We are responsible for generating the funds our organization needs through fundraisers, donations, and other activities.

2. Don’t all SPCA’s perform animal control?

No, not all SPCA’s are contracted to perform animal control services. In fact, many that did perform these services have discontinued doing so.
Most animal control duties are run through the local government, police departments, or other city departments.

We had continued to carry the animal control contract for the City and the County because we are the leaders in our area for the animal welfare profession.

3. Will the SPCA stay where it is located now?

Yes, the CCSPCA will stay at our current location. The campus, including all land and buildings, are owned by the CCSPCA. We will continue to operate from this location even after we conclude our animal control services and look forward to building a true community animal center.

1. “What can the community do to help keep the CCSPCA a leader in animal adoption once Oct 1 comes around…how can we help?”
Volunteer
Donate
Sponsor a Spay / Neuter
Keep reading posts/news to stay in touch

2. Is the hospital currently open, will it remain open after Oct. 1st?

Yes, the hospital intends to continue providing caring services to new and existing Pet Parents, now and continuing after the transition in animal control.

3. Will the CCSPCA remain open after Oct. 1st?

Yes! We will be here for our community and open as a Humane Society as we always have been. The operational change is only in that of animal control contracted activities, which impact our open hours. Keeping everyone up-to-date to changes is a priority of our organization, especially, as we continue to grow as a Humane Society. 

As of October 1st 2012, we will no longer provide Animal Control Services for the City and County of Fresno. Today (3-28-12), we have delivered notice of termination of our contract with the City and County and begin the process of transitioning animal control responsibilities. At this time we are still providing Animal Control Services. We have opted to be supportive of the City and County during this 6 month transition period and we’ll continue to be here for our community as we have always been.

1. Who made this decision?
This decision was made by our Board of Directors. The Board of Directors of the Central California SPCA is comprised of local citizen-volunteers dedicated to our Society’s mission “to prevent cruelty to animals and promote the quality of life of all creatures through rescue, protection, placement, education, leadership and good example.”

2. Why was this decision made?
The CCSPCA Board of Directors concluded that without the support of our community, complete support from the City and County, the duties and obligations in the current contract for animal control services are no longer allowing our organization to achieve our core focus and mission. The community’s concern regarding the CCSPCA’s meeting policies and euthanasia rates inspired the CCSPCA Board of Directors to re-examine who we are obligated to protect.

3. What does this mean?
This means as of October 1st 2012, we will no longer provide animal control services to the City or County and thus we will no longer be an open-door shelter.

For the City and County, this means they will have to contract with another provider for rabies control, licensing services and enforcement, responding to dangerous/vicious animal attacks, or picking up dead animals.

Sadly, for the public, this means the CCSPCA will no longer be able to accept stray animals or provide stray pick up. We will also no longer be open 24 hours/day, 365 days/year

For the CCSPCA, we are looking forward to focusing more on helping our community through cruelty and neglect investigations, field rescue, education, low-cost and convenient spay/neuter services, adoptions at our Animal Care Center and other off site locations, expanding our volunteer program and working to reduce the amount of homeless animals in the Central Valley.

4. What about the animals?
The animals under our care will have more of our attention because we won’t be focusing on animal control. Our dedicated staff’s primary focus will be on finding homes for all animals under our roof. The animals affected by City and County’s contracted animal control services will fall under the responsibility of the next city vendor.

5. Who will we call if we need help?
If you need help you should call us. We are the region’s leading pet placement resource. And we will continue to be.
However, for Animal Control inquiries after October 1st, the City and County’s next provider may answer your questions or concerns.

6. When will this happen?
This transition will begin today with our Animal Control obligations ending on October 1, 2012.

7. Where will the animals go now?
As of October 1, 2012, all animals (estimated in excess of 47,000 animals/year) will be cared for by the City or County’s next service provider.

8. Will you still take in animals? Which ones?
Yes, we will accept owner relinquished animals on a case by case basis and will perform animal cruelty/neglect investigations.

9. What will this do to your organization?
Our organization will continue to need the help of our community. This change will allow us to focus on our core mission which is: “to prevent cruelty to animals and promote the quality of life of all creatures through rescue, protection, placement, education, leadership and good example.”

Gabriel pure bred Long Haired Dachshund ID#278852

Posted on: July 27th, 2011 by CCSPCA

Gabriel From Animals Seen on TV CCSPCA Fresno

Hello this is Gabriel and he is a pure bred, Long Haired Dachshund that is about 3 years old, ID #278852. He is here because he needs a family with children that are a bit older because those ears are just too hard to resist for the very young! He is a quiet, reserved boy that was wonderful for his grooming and photo shoot! He does need to be an indoor dog. We see many pure breeds at our shelter needing a family that will understand and care for them properly.
