About Us

The CAWS finds homes for dogs and cats through our Foster and Adoption programs and also provides temporary emergency foster care through our Guardian Angels Program for animals whose families are in life transition. These transitions include victims of domestic violence, military respite, disaster relief and temporary medical respite. 

Our Mission 
• to rehabilitate and re-home abused, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered animals, including providing all necessary veterinary care 
• to prevent overpopulation through spay/neuter; to restore dignity, trust and quality of life for all the dogs and cats in our care 
• to find the best home for each dog and cat in our care 
• to educate adopters and our community on pet care, spaying/neutering, training and suitable animal selection for their lifestyle 
• to provide a network of resources, volunteers and fosters for animals, animal shelters/pounds and the community 
• to educate on the connection between domestic violence and animal abuse 
• to assist those leaving domestic violence to find safe accommodation for their pets while in transition 
• to have every animal feel safe at all times
