Catholic Community For Animals USA
For this site please contact the site supervisor listed below to schedule your service. Be sure to register your hours in GivePulse once complete.
Nature and Purpose of Agency
The CCA-USA was founded to Create, Connect and Advocate for those with no voice. We are inspired by Roman Catholic teaching fostering care and compassion for all creatures yet we connect with all religious traditions that share our mission and values. We have a Francis Fund that offers financial assistance to the poor and marginalized. These funds are primarily reserved for veterinary and food costs but can be dispensed for other related conditions as needed. We strive to create awareness through education about the suffering of animals. We are actively involved in political issues that serve to eradicate suffering and cruel treatment of all of God's creation. We connect and advocate with others for the rights and welfare of all creatures and the environment.
