 HOG Day at CCA

What a great group of volunteers from East Minister Presbyterian church!  They worked very hard cleaning igloos, putting out gravel, cleaning flower beds and making the shelter ready for summer. A HUGE “thank you” for coming out and supporting CCA!


Kittens, kittens, kittens everywhere! Please call CCA if you are interested in adopting. 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.
