Our mission is to reduce the number of stray cats and dogs in the Wayne County area and to advocate for the welfare of all animals.
CCAW’s mission is to reduce the number of stray cats and dogs in Wayne County and advocate for the welfare of all animals. CCAW was founded in 2009 by Dottie Weaver, and since then we’ve grown a lot -- like a Great Pyrenees! Not only does CCAW help with fixing cats and dogs, we also provide foster care for homeless animals and find them forever homes. But we’ve outgrown our foster families, so we’re building the first and only animal shelter in Wayne County.
Construction on the facility just west of Torrey began in September and we plan to finish up in the spring. The facility will provide shelter and adoption for homeless animals, with the added bonus of serving double-duty as pet boarding and doggie daycare. Local residents will receive a discount for services. This project has been years in the making with an estimated cost of $1.1 million (including the 12 gorgeous acres bordering the Fremont River). Believe it or not, we’re only $18,000 away from reaching that goal, and 90% of donations have been from individuals right here in Wayne County.
Please consider helping us whittle down the final dollars we need to open our doors next year. We are crowdfunding this last bit at:
We’re so close and we can’t wait to see you next year!
With CCAW’s planned facility, lost or abandoned pets will have a greater chance at receiving good care, being reunited with their owners, or being re-homed.
