CCHS is striving to be proactive in its attempt to place homeless cats in forever homes. We constantly find ourselves full to the maximum with cats. So the Executive Director Susan and the Board of Directors met and talked about solutions to try to fix our problem with the over abundance of homeless cats in our shelter. We have found that having the NO FEE Cat Adoptathons have significantly reduced our cat numbers at CCHS and we have been able to place our cats in record time. We realized that we needed a long term solution to the problem we face here. CCHS has decided to permanently lower our Cat Adoptions Fees to the lowest amount possible. We realize that the fee we are getting will not come close to covering the expenses of getting the cats ready for adoption but we are hoping our donations and having small fundraisers for that purpose will offset the amount needed to ready them for adoption.
Here are the new Permanent CCHS Cat Adoption Fees:
Young Adult Cats 6mos to 1 year : $40 Old fee : $50
Cats Over 1 year: $10 Old Fee: $50
Cats 6 years and older: NO FEE Old Fee $50
Kitten Fees will remain the same as always: $80
Our cats will always be spayed and neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed before adoption. That will not change even with the lower fees.
We are hoping these new fees will keep a constant flow of adopters coming through our doors and make CCHS the hotspot for adoption!
Pet of the Week!NAHLA!
Nahla is an American Pitbull Terrier who is 1.5 years old. She is very sweet and puppy like. Nahla gets along well with male dogs and she loves attention. She is eager to please and she is stunning! Nahla enjoys going for walks. She is playful and loves attention. Nahla arrived at CCHS on 11/21/13. We can't believe she hasn't been adopted yet. Nahla would be the perfect cuddle bug for a very lucky family. Her adoption fee has been partially sponsored and will be reduced by $50 with an approved application. Click here for more info...
CCHS 2013 Holiday Drive
CCHS would like to thank everybody who donated to our 2013 Holiday Drive. It was a huge success, raising over $31,000! Your donations were especially meaningful, considering today’s difficult economic times. We do not receive any governmental or county funding, so we rely on contracts with municipalities for strays, adoption fees, and donations to survive. All of the money you donated will go directly for the care of the animals at the shelter. Everybody at CCHS thanks you for your generosity!
