October Adoption Promotion

$50 Dog Adoptions  
Oct. 2nd - 31st
To celebrate National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, CCAS is reducing the fee on all dog adoptions to $50. The promotion will run from Oct. 2nd through Oct. 31st. Whether you’re adopting for the first time, looking for the newest member of your pack or simply looking to round out your Scooby Doo Halloween costume, there’s no better time to adopt a shelter dog than National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month.  

#FindYourFido Campaign

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and CCAS is teaming up with the ASPCA to bring attention to lovable homeless dogs and help them find homes through the #FindYourFido campaign.
Who is Fido, you ask? Fido could be any dog! Fido could be big or small, fluffy or sleek, lazy or playful—but most importantly, every Fido is looking for that right match in a loving home.
We'll be kicking off our campaign on October 2, 2018! As part of the #FindYourFido campaign, CCAS will be offering reduced fee adoptions for dogs all month and also offer a mystery pop-up promotion sometime during the month of October to help find forever homes for as many of our shelter dogs as possible.


Adoption Update

Cheeto (#A0919820) was adopted last month and we just received this super cute update:

"I wanted to share an update on Cheeto. He was adopted by my mom and sisters from the Martinez shelter back in August and as you can see he’s all settled in! He loves his forever home and everyone there loves him."

He looks pretty darn comfortable in his new home! We couldn't be happier for him.
