When you become a member of the CCAS, you’re helping to support programs and services that save the lives of animals. We take in animals surrendered by the public,or stray and abandoned animals found in the county. It is our primary mission to offer refuge, nourishment, medical care, and to find a loving home for life for every healthy and treatable animal surrendered to us. The Clay County Animal Shelter serves local people and their pet companions. We are not affiliated with any national organization so donation dollars provide benefits and services to animals and their guardians right here in Clay County,including:

  • Shelter, food, and veterinary care for homeless animals
  • Pet adoptions at the shelter and at off-site events
  • Foster care for sick, injured, and pregnant animals every year
  • Lifesaving medical care including surgery
  • Behavior rehabilitation for dogs and cats with problems

Membership is perhaps the most important fundraiser for the Clay County Animal Shelter. We are currently run entirely by volunteers, so every dollar raised goes directly to the care of our animals. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3, no-kill animal shelter.
