Each year, we receive thousands of dollars in donations from the members of our community for which we are
incredibly thankful. Being a non-profit, we rely on these donations for all our activites and to provide the best
possible living conditions for our furry friends.
Each quarter, we like to let you know what we're raising money towards and highlight it in our newsletter. If
you're interested in helping us out or are just curious as to what our funds are going to, please read on below.
Imagine being a homeless dog in Camden County - after a potentially scary trip to the shelter, where you don’t
recognize a familiar face or smell, you are put into a metal cage with a concrete floor to await adoption.
Despite the best and kind care of the staff and volunteers at CCAS, this is certainly not like home used to
be. To make this transition easier for these poor doggies, please help us give all 100 of our dogs a Kuranda
bed for 2012. These beds are chew-proof and easy to clean in a shelter environment. They will last for years
to come and will give many dogs a comfortable place to lay their head while in our care. If you would like to
donate a Kuranda bed, pick one out and send it our way - here's the
Imagine being a homeless cat in our County. Your temporary home is a stainless steel cage that is very noisy when
the doors are opened and closed and provide less than ideal viewing for the adopters that have come to see you.
While these stainless steel cages were one of the best available options seven years ago, there are much better
and comfortable products now available. We wish to upgrade our adoption space to new enclosures which are more
open and will provide adopters with a better one-on-one experience. They are more lightweight and thus create
less noise to stress our feline residents. These cages will also enable us to house more cats which will help us
in our efforts to end homelessness in Camden County. Please

Have you ever heard of the Thundershirt? It provides gentle, constant pressure to give a calming effect to the
dog wearing it. It reduces their anxiousness and provides a great solution to overly excited canines. One
thing is for certain, for a very large percentage of dogs, Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a
terrific calming effect. This has obvious benefits for most types of anxiety. But Thundershirt is also a very
useful tool for managing excitability or hyperactivity with strangers, on the leash, or in a training
environment. Thundershirt’s calming effect helps a dog to focus (or refocus) her energies in a more
constructive direction, allowing training to be more effective. If you would like to donate one to our
shelter, purchase one from
and it'll come directly to us.
