California Animal Shelter Friends, Inc.

Welcome to the California Animal Shelter Friends, Inc. Website

California Animal Shelter Friends (CASF) is a 501(c3) non-profit corporation.  We are a group of dedicated volunteers including animal trainers, veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other animal lovers.  We dedicate our time and energy to saving shelter animals from euthanasia in the state of California.  .

We are based out of Northern California in the Sacramento area.  We work primarily with animal shelters and veterinary hospitals in Central and Northern California. Our dedicated volunteers identify underage (orphaned or very young animals still with their mother in an animal shelter), injured or sick, but otherwise highly adoptable, homeless animals at risk of euthanasia.  We rescue them and provide them with medical care, rehabilitation and placement into permanent, loving adoptive homes.

All of the animals who come to our group are provided with comprehensive medical care while with us including:  spay/neuter surgery, microchipping (permanent identification), deworming, vaccinations, flea and heartworm control, testing for common diseases (heartworm disease in adult dogs, FeLV/FIV in cats and kittens) and any other medical treatment or wellness care required (including treatment for any illness, surgery to repair any injuries, bloodwork, dental cleanings, etc. as needed).

We have rescued dogs, puppies, cats and kittens from the following areas/shelters:  Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation, Sacramento City Animal Care, Sacramento SPCA, Colusa County Animal Care, Tracy Animal Shelter, Los Banos Animal Shelter, Redding (Haven Humane Society), Madera Animal Shelter, Merced Animal Shelter, Central California SPCA's Fresno Animal Shelter. Turlock City Animal Shelter, Yolo County Animal Care, Los Coches Animal Shelter, Tehama County Animal Care and Monterrey County Animal Shelter. 

We work with a wonderful network of shelters, veterinary hospitals and volunteers to get animals in need into our care.  We'd like to thank everyone who helps us to save these deserving animals from euthanasia.  Without the dedicated animal shelter workers and volunteers, transport volunteers, foster homes and loving adopters we couldn't do what we do.  THANK YOU!

Please consider adopting an animal, sponsoring an animal, making a donation to our organization or volunteering with us so that you can help us to help animals in need.
