CASA (Camano Animal Shelter Association) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a managed-admissions no-kill animal shelter which is devoted to the care of homeless pets. Our shelter is located on beautiful Camano Island and was founded in 1998 when Camano Island lost its previous animal services organization and the void needed to be filled. CASA is an independent charitable organization that cares for cats and dogs as well as the occasional pocket pet. We are contracted for stray services in Camano Island only, but accept owner-surrendered animals from Camano and beyond as space allows. Through our limited contract with Island County we provide dog licensing services as well as temporary care, boarding and redemption services for impounded/seized dogs (via Camano Sheriff Deputies/Animal Control) from Camano Island.
CASA recognizes that finding forever homes for homeless animals is a community effort. When possible, we assist other shelters by taking animals that have been at their shelter for a prolonged period of time, are facing euthanasia due to space, and/or could really benefit from a change of environment or different exposure. We also work with a variety of rescue groups in order to transfer animals to them when they need more specialized care prior to finding a forever home. A number of rescue groups also utilize us on a referral basis when they are too full.
Our organization works hard each day to make a positive and lasting impact in our area and beyond. Our ability to help animals is thanks to donations and memberships like yours. Our organization would not exist today without the generous support of our community. THANK YOU! Thanks to the ongoing support from the community, CASA is able to care for over 600 lost, abandoned and surrendered cats and dogs, per year. We are proud to say that every single animal that is adopted from us will go home spayed or neutered and microchipped.
