The SCAWC is able to respond to compassion calls on a limited basis. A compassion call is considered a stray animal in immediate need of medical attention (for instance, a dog or cat hit by a car). A compassion call donation of $20.00 is suggested to help with the expenses associated with these calls. Your support allows us to continue to respond to our communities needs and care for more animals.
We never turn away an animal in need. Although we cannot always respond to calls for animals to be picked up, we always accept any animal that is brought to the shelter. Our community of compassionate animal lovers often pick up animals found running loose. We offer traps to individuals who can help catch wiley strays and bring them to us. Owners that have pets they no longer want or that are in need of care are asked to bring their pets to us. There is no fee, but we gratefully accept donations. We accept all animals regardless of the cause of surrender. Working together we can help more animals that need help and respond to our community’s needs.
