About

Mission

The mission of Contra Costa Humane Society is to empower our community to improve the quality of life for animals and decrease euthanasia rates. Through our programs and services we connect with individuals and private and public organizations to adopt pets, reduce the number of unwanted animals, and educate the public to foster compassion, responsibility, and respect toward animals.

History

Contra Costa Humane Society was formed as the result of the merger between two groups, Stop Pets' Annual Yield (SPAY) and Animal Protection Bureau (APB). SPAY was established in 1971 to support the Spay/Neuter Clinic locally and APB formed in 1980 to combat the homeless animal problem in Contra Costa County. A merger between the two groups was completed in 1991 and we have served Contra Costa County as CCHS ever since.

Leadership Team

CCHS is under the direction of two full-time staff members and a Board of Directors.

All of the felines available through our Foster Program are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and given age-appropriate vaccinations for their new home. Oftentimes, further medical care has been given, such as flea treatment, deworming, stool samples, or specific surgeries. On average, CCHS invests over $250.00 per cat, which includes their food, treats, toys, litter, supplies and medical treatment. Your minimal adoption fee helps to offset some of these costs and ensures funding for other cats in need of care through our programs.

 

The adoption fee for dogs over the age of 6 months is $150.00.

Puppies under the age of 6 months have an adoption fee of $200.00.

All of the dogs available through our Adopt-a-Friend program are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and given age-appropriate vaccinations for their new home. Oftentimes, further medical care has been given, such as flea treatment, heartworm treatment, deworming, stool samples, or specific surgeries. On average, CCHS invests over $300.00 per dog, which includes their food, treats, toys and medical treatment. Your minimal adoption fee helps to offset some of these costs and ensures funding for other dogs in need of care through our program.
