As we start another year we wish to thank our friends who have been supporting us over the past year. We can’t control the weather. We can only do the best we can with what you have given us. We believe that our many loyal volunteers and great staff have helped us do that. We pledge to continue to find good homes for the great animals in our care while providing them with a home until that happens. We ask you to go on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media and search for “cisar” to see the great older dogs who would have been dead were it not for you, our loyal supporters.

We often try to tell people why we do what we do. But as often the case our long time supporters say it best. “CISAR saved the lives of Hurley and Delsi before I adopted them in 2008 and 2010, and they are still great family members. CISAR has saved 10s of thousands of other lives and led the no-kill movement into our area. I will always be a supporter. “

Thank you to our supporters over the years. This includes our hundreds of volunteers and our staff, surgeons, and Veterinary Staff. From the beginning we have attempted to save the lives of any companion Animal in need until they find their forever home.

Our promise to you is that this will never change.

Little Colby was left in the country to die. The problem with his skin caused a severe loss of hair. His toenails were so long they were twisted into his little paws. His skinny bones were showing. He was frightened and hardly able to walk. Because of your support we were able to say yes when Animal Control ask us to take him in. Meds, oatmeal baths, and loving care so he can feel better, and Colby will soon be ready for a forever home, in part because of you.
