Please join CCA and GLOW Lyric Theatre for a performance of

All Creatures Great and Small.

A joint fundraiser between Glow and rescue groups Saved by the Heart and Concerned Citizens for Animals, All Creatures Great & Small  is a tribute to all our furry, feathery, and leathery buddies in the animal kingdom! Enjoy two chances to sit back and be serenaded with song, dance, and testimonies celebrating the love that our pets bring us. An evening guaranteed to leave you warm and fuzzy, All Creatures Great & Small raises awareness for animal welfare, with guest appearances from our favorite furry friends!  Join Glow, Saved by the Heart and Concerned Citizens for Animals for a free pre-show reception and post-show talk back.

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and while many may think the greatest love of all is romantic, heart shaped, or chocolate covered, Glow is taking a unique approach to celebrate animal love. All Creatures Great and Small, Glow’s first show in their 2018 Raising Voices Series, tackles the topic of the joys animals bring to our lives, and partners to benefit animal activist groups such as Concerned Citizens for Animals and provide awareness to organizations like Saved by the Heart.

But what inspired the Glow team to tackle this theme in the new year? We stopped by to talk with Glow Artistic Director Jenna Tamisiea to find out!

Help us help them…


Thank you to all those who attended Bark in the Park for making Concerned Citizens for Animals’ fundraiser a success. Check out pictures from the event here.

HOG Day at CCA

This is Raymond James 4th year coming to the shelter to help get ready for summer. They worked trimming bushes, hauling pea gravel to fill low spots, washing igloos and after all work was finished the kids played with puppies. Thank you Raymond James! RamondJamesHOGday

An important reminder!

Days are quickly becoming much warmer. Please keep your pets and family safe! Remember the outside temperature quickly becomes deadly inside a car for pets and children.

We urge you to adopt, not shop for your next family member!

Who We Are

Founded in 1980, Concerned Citizens for Animals is celebrating 36 years of improving the lives of homeless animals in the Upstate. Through our shelter operation, and a variety of community service programs, CCA offers a second chance to neglected, stray and abandoned animals.

As the oldest no-kill shelter in the Upstate, CCA provides treatment, sterilization, care, and a safe haven for its residents until loving homes are found. Prospective homes are screened, references are checked and home visits made to ensure the animals are placed with responsible, caring individuals and families.

CCA’s Feral Cat Program employs the TNR (trap, neuter, and return) process to assist feral cat colony caretakers in maintaining the health of the colony and curbing the colony’s growth. Our Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program is effective in alleviating animal suffering by reducing the number of unwanted canine and feline births in the Upstate.

The combined efforts of an involved management team, a dedicated caretaker and an active volunteer force create a powerful influence in the lives of the animals in our care and those in the community we serve.

Mission Statement

CCA shall not destroy any animal unless it is beyond medical care, and suffering would be the permanent result of medical treatment.

CCA shall operate an animal shelter for abandoned, sick, injured, or otherwise homeless animals.

CCA shall maintain an adoption program to permanently place homeless animals in qualified homes.

CCA shall maintain a low-cost spay/neuter program for the community.

CCA shall strive to prevent or stop any abuse, neglect, or otherwise inhumane treatment of any animal.

Concerned Citizens for Animals is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please consider supporting CCA’s work with a tax deductable donation.
