We are a 501(c)3 charity

OUR MISSION:  RCAS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to care for and find homes for the stray dogs and cats in our community.  We hope to eliminate animal suffering, improve animal health, foster greater appreciation for the human-animal bond and educate our community about animal concerns.  We are dedicated to finding each of our great animals their forever home.

ABOUT US:  We were founded by a group of determined people who saw the need for a warm and welcoming temporary home for the many abandoned animals that roamed the streets.  Our doors were opened in October 27, 2007, when we began finding loving families for all of our "second chance" animals!

We take pride in our helpful staff members and volunteers.  They put forth the extra time and compassion to make sure that all of our animals are given lots of love and attention.

We could not operate without the generosity of wonderful and caring people, such as yourself, who support us with monetary donations and membership fees, as well as everything from bleach to staples.  Your helping hands as volunteers allows us to spend that labor savings on our animal needs.

We are pleased that you enjoy our twice a year bargain book sales, Pet Parades, and adoption events.  Thank you for supporting YOUR shelter!!
