Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We aim to address animal welfare issues in our community, whether that is pet homelessness, dog and cat overpopulation, animal cruelty and neglect, or the well-being of community cats, as well as easing problems which make it difficult for pets to stay in their homes with the people who love them.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adoption

We generally admit animals as strays, owner surrenders, and transfers from other organizations. As a 'no need to kill' organization, adoptions are essential to opening space in our facility so that there is room for the next animal to come in.

Population(s) Served
Adults

This is our clinic for owned animals in the community to help combat the companion animal overpopulation problem and keep people's pets healthy and in the home.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Economically disadvantaged people

Our Animal Behavior Team members work with shelter animals to increase their opportunities to be adopted and aid in home retention once they go to an adoptive home. This program is essential to maintaining our exceptional rate of life saving.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We offer Community Outreach Programs and educational facility tours for all age groups.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are working to create a more humane community. This umbrella goal has many parts, including providing food, water, and shelter for animals in need; reducing pet overpopulation; creating programming that supports the human-animal bond; advocating for animals and their welfare; and adopting animals into new homes.

Since the inception of CCHS in 1905, the organization has been there to care for animals who need a place to stay. As we work to reduce the number of pets who must come into the shelter every year, we also know that the need for a safe haven will always be there and we will continue to provide such care no matter the changes to our other programming.

The organization is small but progressive and over the years the programming at CCHS has evolved to meet the needs of the animals and the community.

Over the past three years, CCHS has increased its strategy of outreach and increasing programming that helps pets remain healthy and in their homes with the families who love them.

Included in this programming is a Pet Food Pantry, Healthy Pet Clinics which offer preventative medical care at low-cost to no-cost, and a low-cost spay/neuter clinic for the public.

We add the programming as it becomes possible for us so while it is possible for CCHS to meet its goals, it will take time to build the resources we need to take each additional step.

We have come a long way from being strictly focused on the animals to understanding and supporting the whole family unit. As a result we have made progress in our programming that helps to keep animals and people together. We are always learning and planning for what's next.
