Promotion offered at CCAS’ Martinez & Pinole adoption centers to clear space with shelters at capacity  

Martinez, CA – Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) will be offering free adoptions of all animals on Saturday, March 9th, in an effort to clear shelter space. The free adoption special includes most fees associated with adopting an animal, including: adoption fees, spay/neuter, micro-chipping and vaccination (avg. cost of adoption is between $104-$284).

  1. How can I get help to write a new law that will fine people caught breeding dogs with out a breeders licence and proper facility. The animal abuse and neglect and OVER BREEDING IS ENOUGH. Also if you get a puppy 5 classes and a small instruction on daily obedience training should be included. If we don’t make people feel the weight of irresponsible breeding in the pocket book they will never stop. A slap on the wrist is just not going to cut it any more! I do not know where to source the information required to wide a law get it on a ballot and in front of the public’s vote. Anyone who can help me or has any ideas please email me. I would really appreciate any advice!. ([email protected]
