Mission Statement

Reduce the number of stray cats and dogs in the Wayne County area and to advocate for the welfare of all animals.

Vision Statement

For every animal a forever home!

Wayne County is a wild and wondrous place, and very remote.  There are no public animal services other than Color Country Animal Welfare.  We offer assistance to residents and tourists to keep animals safe and try to ensure all animals have a good home.

We were founded by Dottie Weaver in 2009 with the help of her neighbors and friends, many of whom are still involved in CCAW. Sadly, Dottie passed away just before we purchased our land, but we know she’d be proud of what her passion for animals has sparked.

CCAW’s current board of directors is comprised of Wayne County residents who dedicate their time and talents to improving the lives of animals.
