Friends of the Canyon County Animal Shelter
Canyon County Animal Shelter is under new management. Canyon County Animal Shelter (CCAS) is now a private non-profit 501(c)3 organization that operates the animal shelter serving Canyon County residents.
The CCAS is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The shelter is staffed by a small number of paid professionals. CCAS relies on its volunteers to provide quality care for the animals, to promote pet adoptions and to create successful community fundraising events. Funding for shelter operations relies primarily on the generosity of the community to make private donations and is supplemented by a combination of grants, contracts with local government to take in stray dogs and cats, and fees from shelter services.
CCAS has been in existence in its current facility for over 10 years, and during that time has been operated by the Canyon County Sheriff's Department. On October 1, 2011, the shelter began operations as a private nonprofit 501(c)3 organization and is no longer a county-operated facility. Friends of Canyon County Animal Shelter operates the shelter under the DBA (doing business as) of Canyon County Animal Shelter (CCAS). We look forward to serving the community and helping the homeless animals of Canyon County to find loving homes.
We invite you to visit the shelter, to meet our staff and to get acquainted with some of the wonderful dogs and cats at the shelter. We strive to provide friendly customer service and quality care for the animals.
Looking for a rewarding experience? Check out our volunteer opportunities. We are building a team of friendly, committed people who will help us to create Idaho's most outstanding animal shelter with effective programs that promote pet adoptions, provide low-cost spay/neuter to reduce the number of unwanted animals, assist pet owners with challenging pet behavior questions and promote responsible pet ownership.
