License Amnesty

May is License Amnesty Month!

This May, pet owners in Contra Costa County have even more reason to license their animals! During CCAS’ biennial License Amnesty program this month, all late fees and penalties will be waived when you license your pet. Additionally, if you license your pet during the May License Amnesty program, and your pet is impounded as a stray between now and July 7th, owners will not be charged impound or boarding fees when they retrieve their pets. Now that’s a reason to celebrate. Please help spread the word about our May License Amnesty program. 
Rounding out this month’s newsletter, see below for information about our May promotion, a great adoption update and much more. Finally, be sure to read this month’s blog about the importance of licensing your pet.

May Adoption Promotion: 20/20 Special

There’s nothing blurry about this… Between May 16th and May 31st, the adoption fee for dogs over 20lbs will be a flat rate of $20.00. We’ve named this promotion our 20/20 Special. So unless you’re listening to Foreigner this month, nobody’s eyes should be filled with double vision!

Cookie, formerly Cuddles
Adoption Update
Hello! Wanted to give an update on Cookie (formerly known as Cuddles A900484). Cookie was surrendered to the shelter after she was hit by a car. We are SO thankful that Contra Costa Animal Services had the resources available to perform the necessary surgery on her leg. Cookie is as active, playful, and happy as any other cat - she zooms around the house so much, we often forget she's a tripod. Here she is looking as cute as possible to trick us into giving her a treat (i'm sure it worked ). Thanks again for taking such good care of her when she needed it most!

CCAS in the News

Read this East Bay Times article about how CCAS and our community came together to help save Porsche, a dog who was paralyzed after being hit by a car. Special shout out to the volunteers at Smart Paws, who initially got the word out about Porsche that resulted in the wheel chair being donated! 
Porsche’s life wasn’t going great. The 5-year-old mixed pit bull dog was a stray, living on the streets of Richmond and struggling to survive…[Read more]

*Update on Porsche & Mystique:  On Saturday, April 28th, Porsche and Mystique were transferred to Team Leo Rescue in Vail Colorado, a rescue that has experience with dogs with trauma similar to Porsche’s. Thanks to the Angel donor who donated the wheelchair, Smart Paws, Team Leo, the CCAS volunteers and staff for this team effort that saved two lives. Even better, before the transport to vail, Porsche was showing signs that she was regaining some feeling in her back legs!!!
