We would like to thank the following companies who have donated their services or resources
to renovate the house so we can open our doors!
Many people offered to help us for a price, but only one offered to help us for nothing – Rob Rice! We are so grateful to Rob & Helena Rice of Rob Rice Homes and their subcontractors for their generosity and support. We could not have done this house renovation project without them! It would have taken us years, but instead it took only a few weeks. The money we saved will help hundreds of pet owners and animals. It’s been wonderful working with people who want to give back, improve our community and help families stay together. Rob Rice Homes made it happen.

We are incredibly thankful for The Home Depot on Fones Road, Olympia, for building us a permanent animal food bank shed right at our new house/office location on State Avenue. Seven employees volunteered on a Saturday in July to build and paint the shed. The scope of this project lasted three days! We are grateful to the following employees:
Lee Sumpter (Store Manager), Shane Morehouse, Bruce Cardwell, Brenda Asher,
Thank you so much to Lowe's and all their Heroes! They tackled three large jobs that would have taken us years to organize and afford. Spear-heading this ambitious, two-day project was Roger Reaves of Lowe's in Lacey. Over two dozen employees came on their day off and battled the heat to build two brick donor walkways, plant landscaping, install the irrigation system and spread mulch. What a happy and animal-lover group of volunteers, too, with four dogs helping to oversee the project! Concern for Animals is so appreciative to Lowe's for donating the irrigation system, hoses, timers, hose boxes, sand and brick borders.
We wish to recognize Lowe’s Heroes: Roger Reaves, Leslie Hallberg, Cindy McKenna, Antonio Santos, Charles Landery, Arthur Murphy, Nancy Aldrich, Chris Post, James Johnson, Charles Alexander, Mary Myers, Melissa Ebinger, Catie Tovrea, Chad Edwards, Kimberly Cook, Matt Timm and Maja Cifric.
The project was also made possible with landscape design by Plantasia Botanical Gardens, soil, plants and mulch donated by Ernie Unroe of Pacific West Landscaping, sand and gravel by Miles Sand and Gravel and transportation by C & S Enterprises.
Please consider helping us maintain the house and office by making a tax-deductible donation from our wish list. For a complete list of items, please click here.
Our brick donor walkway fundraiser is under way! Concern for Animals is pleased to launch a brick fundraiser to help us build new walkways at the CFA house and offset office expenses to help keep our doors open for years to come. The brick walkway will be built this coming year in the front and back of the house where visitors will be able to see all the acknowledgements of companies and individuals who helped CFA’s renovation project, tributes to loved ones, creating a lasting memory and names of CFA supporters. Whatever the reason, please consider purchasing a brick today. For more information, visit our Event page!

Thank You to reporter Chelsea Krotzer and The Olympian for spending time with CFA and writing a great article about our organization.
"After operating out of the homes of its volunteers and organizers and donated business space for more than three decades, an Olympian area animal-rescue organization finally will have a place to call home by early next year." To read more, click here.
Eight students and two advisors from Western Oregon University spent their spring break painting the inside of the CFA house and working on animal food bank projects. We are so grateful for their time and making it a fun two days.
Thank you to Meconi's in Olympia for donating a delicious lunch for all these volunteers. And, for donating lunch to The Home Depot employees who built our animal food bank shed!
