We may never pay attention to how many animals are actually roaming the streets and freeways during our day to day routines. However, It is just a matter of time before we see the ones that are going to be needing our help! Who would you contact if you found a stray dog at your front door? Keep reading to find out who to call and what services they provide!
Contra Costa Animal Services is located in two different cities in Contra Costa County, Martinez, and Pinole. They provide animal services to all of Contra Costa County, with the exception of The City of Antioch. CCAS is responsible for enforcing the local and state laws regarding domestic animals, sick or injured livestock, or wildlife in CC County. You can shop at one of these shelters for your new four-legged furry friend and bring them home! Some of our Real Estate Team has found their furry little friend through animal shelters, and it has brought so much joy to their home and to their animal!
Along with shopping for your new pet, you also have the opportunity to volunteer here and help out with the cleaning and feeding of the animals for a few hours every week. Volunteering is rewarding and it is a way to bring joy to some of these homeless animals. Tours are available as well, where you can learn more about the overall work that goes into running the animal shelters. Lastly, the shelters accept donations, 100% of the proceeds are used strictly for the shelter which includes feeding, grooming, and any medical needs that are required to have for these animals. The medical team goes above and beyond to make sure that each animal has everything they need to overcome the sicknesses they have, but unfortunately, in some cases, the treatments far outweigh the financial ability to provide the best care.
Take a second to see if donating to the animal shelter is something you might want to take part in!
