Help CAWS keep rescuing!

$1,450 of $10,000 raised

Friends, while the world is in lock down for the safety of our human community, many shelters are still overflowing with deserving dogs and cats.

These are challenging times for all of us and sadly, the homeless pets in shelters are now at greater risk than ever before, as shelters are forced to close their doors to public adoptions. In all of the chaos and panic, this is where CAWS can really help, with your support!

At CAWS, we are no less committed to saving adoptable pets. We have been overwhelmed with offers of help from folks who have TIME on their hands, and have made the decision to save EVEN MORE cats and dogs!!!

Our CAWS team is currently working to save substantially more lives. We are taking this opportunity to really dig down deep, and rush out to rescue these pets, now when it’s needed more than ever before.

We estimate these additional medical, supply, and transport costs will start at $10,000 and go up.

We NEED YOU, and can not do this without the help of our generous donors! With your financial help and our expanding foster network, we can really step it up and make a difference during this pandemic crisis, and until our shelters can once again operate normally.

The animals need our help. PLEASE consider donating to help us save as many as we can!

Thank you for always helping us save lives!

The CAWS Team xoxo

25k for 25 Years of CAWS

$13,393 of $25,000 raised

25 years of rescue, foster care, medical cases, adoptions, happy forever stories, and the endless support from our community have made Community Animal Welfare Society (CAWS) the amazing non-profit organization we are today. For this reason we are choosing to celebrate by committing to saving more animals that deserve a chance at having a wonderful life. Our organization would not be able to function without the immense financial and volunteer force provided by

our community. For our 25th anniversary we are aiming to raise $25,000 by the end of 2019 that will support future animals rescued in our program. Throughout the campaign we will be sharing CAWS success stories that have been a direct result from the kind donations, volunteer hours, and amazing support we have received over the past 25 years. Keep checking in for updates and help us reach our goal! Link to donate:

Looking for ways to help besides donating? Did you know that sharing fundraisers on social media is one of the BEST ways to gain donors and publicity? Please help spread the word about 25k for 25 years of CAWS! We are also always looking for volunteers and fosters to join our program! Message with any questions.

Thank you for helping to save animals in our community and beyond!
