The Heart of CCAS - Our Volunteers!
With Volunteer Appreciation Week right around the corner, we wanted to focus this month's newsletter on the lifeblood of Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) -- our volunteers! For some people, volunteering is about giving. For CCAS volunteers, it's a way of life. Their daily acts of kindness and compassion, and their knowledge and experience of our department and the animals, make them real life superheroes who ensure that our furry friends are cared for, enriched and find loving homes every single day.
With wages in licks, wags and purrs, perks in the form of bringing smiles to people's faces who've found their match, and benefits including love and companionship - this is a CCAS volunteer's reward for volunteering with all their heart.
If you're ever at one of our shelters, be sure to find a volunteer and thank them. Because without our volunteers, none of what we do would be possible. (Read more)
