Ashley Stephenson, a 5th grader at Ringgold Elementary, loves animals and hopes to one day run her own animal rescue shelter. For her 11th birthday, she wanted a science party but instead of gifts, she wanted to raise money and donation items for CCAC. Ashley raised $100 and several bags of dog/cat food. Her parents decided to match all the money she raised, making her donation a total of $200. Ashley and her parents attended the monthly CCAC meeting on February 5th at the Catoosa County Library. Ashley is pictured with CCAC president, Sara DeBerry, presenting the group with the generous $200 donation and items for the animals. The group is very impressed with the compassion and generosity that Ashley has for animals. They hope her thoughtfulness will be an inspiration to others. She is a very special young lady.
As you may have known, we had our monthly meeting last night to go over the animals we have in care, our abilities to pull new ones, fundraising, our funds in general, future events… all kinds of stuff. We have been helping dogs and cats in need and pulling animals from the shelter at such a high rate that our funds are dwindling very very low- to the point we will not be able to keep up with this rate. We rely solely on the generous donations you provide to care for these animals. A while after the meeting we received word from a generous donor that they are willing to match dollar for dollar any donations we can get up to $950.00!! So we are asking you to PLEASE if you can, donate so we can help save and provide these animals vetting so they get a second chance and can meet their forever family! Again this donor will match any donation you make dollar for dollar up to 950.00! We are a 501c3 non profit so your donation is tax deductible as well. If you would like to donate there is a link on our website through PayPal or you can mail to CCAC- PO Box 838 Ringgold GA 30736 Thanks again for your support!!
Our next adoption event will be at the Fort O Tractor Supply on Saturday, February 9th. Come out to see all the sweet dogs available for adoption. You can also see all the available animals and their pics before the event under the adoptable pets tab and there is an adoption application as well if you are interested in adopting.

Catoosa Citizens for Animal Care Receives Funding From Banfield Charitable Trust
The Catoosa Citizens for Animal Care is pleased to announce a recent grant from Banfield Charitable Trust to help provide basic veterinary care for financially-challenged companion pet owners and families.
Any pet owner who is in need of financial assistance will be required to complete an application and be able to demonstrate a real financial need to help care for a pet as well as proof of residency in Catoosa County. CCAC understands that the current economic climate is challenging for many families and wants to help those who need it most. “We want to help people avoid having to surrender a pet because of financial issues. We must also take steps to ensure we are good stewards of the funds we have been awarded and the only way to do this is to screen each applicant,” said Sara DeBerry, president of CCAC.
While the Banfield grant does not cover assistance with the cost of Continue reading
The devastation of the April 27, 2011 tornados catapulted our community in ways we never imagined. It has resulted in many contacts and partners that have lead us in many directions. Through the help of supporters, volunteers and grants we were able to accomplish the following:
- We provided assistance for 493 spay/neuters for cats and dogs this past year.
- We helped place 154 animals this year through adoptions, shelter transfers, rescues and networking to place in homes. We also helped several cat colonies with TNR.
- Many animals were kept in their homes through our efforts to help families in need.
We are very thankful for our supporters and volunteers that enable us to continue to help the families and animals of Catoosa County.
