Happy Groundhog Day 2017!

It’s Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow. That means six more weeks of winter folks. We are hoping his prediction is wrong and we will see spring weather soon!


Here’s a little information about groundhogs. Groundhogs havegroundhog short ears and a short tail, and can weigh up to 11 pounds. They have two layers of fur: A dense grey undercoat and a longer coat of banded guard hairs that gives the groundhog a “frosted” appearance. Despite how they look, groundhogs are good swimmers and tree climbers. (Photo of a groundhog eating a flower at Shenandoah National Park by National Park Service. — at Shenandoah National Park.)

Happy News about several pets that have found their Forever homes!

Summer was adopted by Cindy Cooper and her boys, Josh (shown here) and Justin. We are very confident that our Summer has found the home she deserves. Thanks to Terry, Steve, and Nick for fostering Summer for about a month.  This sweet little girl was ready to go to the Cooper home and become the companion that Cindy and her boys have been looking for.










Gizmo who will now be called Toby went to his Forever home. Barbara his new Mom let us know that Toby met the neighbors dog and then came inside slept by her feet, making himself right at home. The grandkids came by fell in love with him and Barbara could not be more pleased.


Thank you to our Petco team these two kittens – Thumper and Boo – were adopted together.  They will have a wonderful, loving home.

We are thrilled to report that Cinder has found a Forever Home!!!

Thank you!!
Thank you!!

Thank you for a great 2016! CCA would like to thank our supporters who helped to make this past year a great success.

In 2016: 138 animals (31 dogs and 107 cats) were placed in loving homes. 310 community (feral) cats were spayed/neutered through the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program and are healthy, safe and now being cared for in colonies throughout the Upstate.
230 animals (125 dogs and 105 cats) benefited from the Low Cost Spay/Neuter program. Of those animals 161 were females and will
no longer be reproducing!

As we begin 2017, CCA is excited about what the future holds.
With the continued support of our faithful volunteers and donors, we look forward to improving the lives of many more animals in the Upstate.
