Message from the President


Happy 2016!

CAWL had a fantastic year in 2015 and we are hoping to do even more this year.  While the major focus is spay and neuter, we do have some new dogs coming in soon and are looking for foster homes.  Fostering is a great way to help two animals as you are opening a spot in a shelter for another dog that needs it. Saving two lives is a great way to start the New Year.

Thank you for all your support and we look forward to much success in 2016!

Winter Animal Healthcare Tips  
  1. Keep animals away from ornaments and other items that can cause harm
  2. Be sure to put away hazardous chemicals, like anti-freeze - can be fatal
  3. Outdoor pets should be provided adequate shelter, warm bedding and fresh water daily - watch for low temps, bring animals in if too cold
  4. Table food is loaded with ingredients that can be harmful to pets - be mindful
  5. Ensure pet clothing, like sweaters and jackets, are dry at all times
  6. Watch for chemicals like salty sidewalks used to melt ice, cleans paws - painful  and irritating if ingested
  7. If animals are left in the cold - report it
 For more information and winter tips check out the 
Humane Society and ASPCA
 websites.
Be proactive, be responsible!  Our pets rely on our love and protection.
