November is a time for giving thanks, especially at Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS). As we begin to reflect on 2018, we are extremely thankful for our community that has made possible hundreds of adoptions, fosters and rescues over the last ten months. Likewise, we are thankful for the efforts of our staff and volunteers who care for and socialize the animals on a daily basis. The phrase “it takes a village” is no more evident than at Contra Costa Animals Services, as it really does take a village to care for and find homes for the 10,000 animals that come into our care each year.
That is why CCAS is launching an important November Giving Drive to raise much-needed funding for the Animal Benefit Fund to allow us to do even more.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 between November 1st and Giving Tuesday (November 27th) for our medical division that is experiencing more severe trauma cases than ever before. Your contributions to the CCAS November Giving Drive will ensure that animals coming into our care receive the medical services they most need. Making a donation is simple and only takes a minute or two. Anyone who donates $100 or more during the November Giving Drive will be granted one free adoption that can be gifted to a friend and redeemed within one year from the date of donation. You can contribute to the CCAS November Giving Drive by going to the Animal Benefit Fund Page and clicking on the Donate button.
In the spirit of the giving season, and our November Giving Drive, we thought you might appreciate this great blog from the Charities Aid Foundation about why it is important to give to charity.
