Happy New Year!

On behalf of the CCAS team, we would like to wish you a happy 2020. We hope your year is filled with happiness, health and maybe a new four legged addition to your family. We have some great updates in our first newsletter of the year, including our updated fee structure which took effect on January 1st, the announcement of our January adoption promotion and our Animal Tails blog about two new important animal laws taking effect in California this year. So without further ado, let’s jump snout first into 2020!

Remember Bronco? He was adopted a few months ago and we just received this sweet update.
"We adopted this sweet boy Diego (Bronco) in November from your Martinez shelter and are so in love."
Love is adoptable at your local animal shelter <3
