California State law requires shelters to hold stray animals for five days and owner relinquished pets for only two days. Shelters without philanthropic support may euthanize animals quickly that may be pregnant, less than 8 weeks of age, have mange, ringworm, colds, coughs, or broken legs simply because the length of recovery exceeds the legally mandated holding period.
The Community Animal Network, is also known as C.A.N. a non-profit charity. Donated dollars serve to rescue, treat, care for and maintain the veterinary health and welfare of local animals needing to find new homes.
Community Animal Network files as a nonprofit 501.3C public benefit corporation organized to provide charitable veterinary medical services for at risk and abandoned animals and to offer the resources necessary to support the services of rescuing such as; boarding, feeding, training, adoption and transporting animals that need to find new homes. Please donate, get actively involved and always adopt animals in need.
The organization also has "relief" programs to serve the public. These programs are designed to serve as a solution to common problems and save lives.
CAN does not have a kennel but works closely with our Adoption Affiliate in order to promote the placement and rescue of community pets. Your financial gifts and sponsorships will enable us to continue our work with local animals.
