CAAWS does not receive any government assistance and subsists solely from adoption fees, private donations and memberships. We have no paid staff so all money donated to CAAWS goes directly to animal care, medical expenses, shelter expenses, pet food, or pet supplies. As a non-profit, we can provide only as much help as we can afford to, and that's where you'll come in. Do you know how to raise money? Are you good at organizing and networking, approaching sponsors to bring them into partnership with us? Do you think you can help us by working together with our Events Committee and Communications Committee to seek out new, untapped resources?
PLEASE include a phone number AND e-mail address where we can reach you. If you would like to find out more about our organization please visit our website at www.caaws.org. Thank you in advance.
