Did you know there is a low-cost spay and neuter program available?
Great News! CCFOA Now offers a low cost spay and neuter program right here in your county.
The cost is $60 and that includes rabies and distemper shots. What a value! Call the shelter for details or to make an appointment
In addition to saving lives, spaying and neutering can also drastically improve your pet's health and life expectancy. The idea that pets become fat or lazy when they are spayed or neutered is a myth. Sterilized pets lead healthier, longer lives. Spaying a female eliminates the possibility of uterine and ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the risk of breast cancer. Neutering a male reduces the risk of both prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Neutering also will make your pet more affectionate and less likely to roam, get in fights, or become lost.
|Fundraising - CCFOA holds a meeting on the 1st Monday of each month @ 6:30 PM at the shelter. Everyone is welcome and appreciated.|
