CCAS offering free adoptions of all animals during the month of June to alleviate crowded shelter

Martinez, CA – All animals at Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) will be free to adopt during the month of June in an effort to clear kennel space with the county shelter reaching capacity. CCAS is also seeking qualified foster homes – specifically those that can accommodate large dog breeds – to help alleviate the current shelter population.

“Like most shelters, we’re experiencing a noticeable increase of animals coming into our facility and we’re close to reaching our capacity,” says Ben Winkleblack, CCAS director. “With more than 220 dogs and cats in the shelter and an average daily intake of nearly 20 animals each day, we’re asking for the community’s help in getting as many pets out of the shelter as we possibly can through adoption and foster.”

CCAS currently has over 200 pets seeking permanent or temporary homes. Interested adopters and fosters can view CCAS’s available pets at www.ccasd.org, or come to meet them at the CCAS adoption center in Martinez. A $25 licensing fee may apply for pet adoptions.
