Special Help for Animals in Need

Mission

Bringing together animals in need and caring people, forever enriching their lives.

Description of Services

CASA accepts dogs, cats, and the occasional pocket pet brought to CASA as strays or surrendered by owners.  We provide temporary care, boarding and redemption services for impounded/seized Camano Island dogs.  Animals remain with us until they are adopted, with no limit on length of stay.  We advocate spaying and neutering of pets, and make referrals to area spay/neuter services.  We encourage owners to microchip their pets by offering free and low-cost microchip clinics.  We help people keep their pets by offering health, behavior and training information, as well as pet food and supplies.  We assist other shelters by taking animals that have been at their shelter for a prolonged period of time, are facing euthanasia due to lack of space, and/or could benefit from a change of environment. We work with rescue groups, transferring transfer animals to them when they need more specialized care or training.  

Program Outcome

Rufus, a Miniature Pinscher mix, arrived at CASA overweight and with an aggressive case of mange.  Tests confirmed that the demodex mange could be treated.  Rufus is receiving the veterinary care he needs, and will go to his new home once his mange has improved.

Big Guy is receiving ongoing care while he waits at the shelter for his new home.  He tested positive for feline Coronavirus and has had a deficit in one eye since birth.  He is receiving supplements and high quality foods to strengthen his immune system and help him stay as healthy as possible.

Cats rescued from a hoarding situation arrived at the CASA shelter suffering from chronic upper respiratory infections, stress from living in an overcrowded unsanitary situation, and inadequate nutrition.  CASA provided veterinary care, high-quality food, and a calm environment.  Some will have chronic non-contagious respiratory sensitivities but they are ready for new lives.
