CITIZENS AGAINST ANIMAL ABUSE
a non profit animal rescue organization
WELCOME TO CAAA
Citizens Against Animal Abuse is a non-profit animal rescue organization. It started out as one person bringing together a network of citizens who for years rescued, fostered and re-homed abandoned, abused and stray animals. Today our goal is to find a loving home for every rescue that comes through our door while building a world-wide network of foster parents, volunteers, benefactors and supporters.
There are many shelters out there, but not all animals benefit from being brought to a shelter. Most of the abandoned animals are actually euthanized due to lack of adoption requests and lack of funds. Majority of shelters are over populated at all times, animals are not getting the needed attention/resources/socialization and etc. Sitting in the cage all day as you wait for your destiny to be decided by humans is not a way to live.
Citizens Against Animal Abuse utilizes a foster parenting method. It allows our rescues to experience love, attention, physical activity and socialization that they so desperately desire.
The idea behind our ourganization is simple yet very effective. Rescue, evaluate, get to know, foster, heal physically and spiritually and rehome. Besides rescue-rehome work, Citizens Against Animal Abuse organization and its network fight animal abuse through education and mentorship. We believe that it is possible to prevent animal abuse, neglect and cruelty by sharing educational information, resources and experience.
What makes us different from a shelter or other rescue organizations is that we want to place each rescue in a foster home (after a thorough vet exam and medical attention if needed) where they will spend time with people, receive love and attention as they are recovering physically and most importantly mentally.
Everyone should have a dream that they work towards achieving. Our dream is to have CAAA members all over the world and a support base located in every major city. By helping the right people connect through our organization, more animals are given a second chance. The broader our network grows the more resouces we have to offer.
Each year there are thousands of pets are left behind due to irresponsible pet ownership, plain cruelty and abuse. Citizens Against Animal Abuse and its network work hard to give these pets a second chance. We want to prevent animals from being euthanized, eliminate animals living in cages as they are waiting to find out if they live or die. We don't want any animal left behind due to lack of resources and we need your help getting there.

How are your donations spent?
Donations are our sole source of funding. Only because of our generous donors we are able to rescue, foster and rehome animals and also provide the necessary support to our members and foster parents.
Our organization is operated by volunteers. Every penny donated goes directly towards the purpose for which it was intended - helping the animals! Visit our donations page to get a detailed description on how the funds are spent.
How does our organization work?
We are regular people who share the same passion, animal welfare. We rescue, foster and re-home all types of animals. We also provide care to dozens of cat colonies where cats are too feral for adoption. We provide vet care when needed, neuter/spay and rescue the ones we feel will do fine in a home.

My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
Give me time to understand what you want of me.
Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
Talk to me. Even if I don’...t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
PETS TEN COMMANDMENTS
Our annual FUNDRAISER is here!!!
Our ultimate goal this spring is to find loving homes for every rescue that comes through our door.
Spring usually brings orphaned kittens, sometimes barely a week old, pregnant female cats, injured male cats that fought over the female cats, young bunnies that were purchased for kids during Easter holiday and released into the streets to be eaten by predators only because no research was done on what it takes to own a bunny, puppies that were gifted for Xmas and after the excitement wore off no longer wanted. On top of these guys there is a constant flow of animals that come in from abusive environments.
Each of these fur babies will need to get evaluated by a vet, get appropriate medical treatment if needed (anything from a few stitches to more complex procedures), receive shots, deworming medication, get neutered/spayed and placed with a foster parent until the right family can adopt it. Sometimes adoption takes place a few days after pre-adoption process is completed, and sometimes it takes months to find the right forever home.
Citizens Against Animal Abuse staff members do not get paid for the work they do. Everyone volunteers their time and their skills. Every dollar donated goes towards animal care.
All the fees and costs associated with each rescue's road to adoption is paid for by Citizens Against Animal Abuse. Without the support of benefactors our organization will not be able to operate. If you think that $1-$5 donation does not make a difference - think again. Every penny makes a difference.
We are unable to take in a rescue if we know that we will be unable to care for it. So when you donate, each dollar allows us to take in another rescue. We've made the donation process as simple and secure as possible. Donations can be made using PayPal or any major credit card.
We would like to thank everyone who supports us and our mission. If you would like to become a part of our organization, drop us a quick email or give us a quick call.
